With this bin you can get the PS3 into service mode and downgrade using the previously released files to downgrade to 3.41 and below.
To quote from their page: "Thank you for using E3card Reader PS3. Today we will bring you a big surprise: the E3-Downgrader for E3card Reader. Yes it's THE downgrader which can turn your 3.5 PS3 down to any version you wanted, i.e. the 3.41.
An English patch of the officially released Tales of Graces F PS3 Demo. Currently requires a PS3 with firmware 3.41, a USB key or harddrive with ~450mb of free space, and a jailbreak device with a payload that supports peek/poke installed (we do not support the PSJailbreak dongle).
1. Download the r3volition patcher package, here.
2. Download the Tales of Graces F Demo package, here.
Skip this step if the demo is already installed on your PS3, or if you wish the PS3 to automatically download the demo for you.
3. Place the packages on your USB stick or drive.
4. Boot your PS3 with the exploit, and use the package installer in the Games menu to install r3volution.pkg
133w ago - Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has posted up a collection of Dead Nation PS3 tips and tricks today dubbed 'Dead Bodies Everywhere' for fans.
To quote: Dead Nation's nonstop shooting and scrambling will test the mettle of even a veteran gamer -- and that's part of the fun!
I've compiled my battle-tested tactics gleaned from beating the game on the "Grim" difficulty, plus bonus tips shared by PlayStation Twitter followers.
Earn more gold, find more health, beat back mobs efficiently, and choose the right upgrades. Be sure to leave your own battle-tested tips in the comments!
• Rush makes you (briefly) invincible. Pressing L2 grants you a burst of speed that makes you untouchable for a nanosecond. Use it to dodge angry Bombies, power through a zombie crowd, or sprint over flames. But even the Rush won't save you from the dreaded Cutter...
• Master the Melee. Melee attacks (R2) knock away all zombies, even those lurking behind you, so it's a must for crowd control. To be a real melee monster, collect fashionable ExoGear armor pieces hidden throughout the game and equip them at the Weapon Shop.
• Melee while reloading. Stuck in a reload animation just as a mob is closing in? Jam on the melee button...
133w ago - Electronic Arts Community Coordinator Eduardo Vasconcellos has shared a video today spotlighting Battlefield: Bad Company 2 - Vietnam The Battle for Hastings on the PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: On December 21, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam will arrive on the PlayStation 3 with the low, low cost of $14.99, adding some great new gameplay to an already fantastic shooter.
You may already know that this expansion comes with new weapons, new vehicles, and four new maps, but what you may not know is that one of the most popular maps from 2004's Battlefield: Vietnam will also be included in the bundle.
The fifth map, Operation Hastings, will add a new avenue for PlayStation gamers to show their superiority on the Battlefield featuring everything that makes BFBC2 Vietnam amazing: tanks, Jeeps, temples, boats and helicopters all in an environment featuring a distinctive bridge that separates the map into two main areas. Though, it's not as easy as all that. It's entirely up to you to unlock this fifth map.
To unlock Operation Hastings, we've decided to start up a new community challenge for all of our fans dubbed The Battle for Hastings. To unlock Operation Hastings,...
133w ago - Today Rockin' Android President Enrique Galvez has shared a video confirmation that Qlione Evolve will be morphing onto PSN this coming Tuesday for $6.99.
To quote: Qlione Evolve is more than what you'll see on its liquid surface.
First, the Qlione Evolve bundle includes two games; Qlione and Qlione 2, at an unbeatable price.
Second, the games' shoot-'em-up-like appearance gives way to something more akin to anti-shoot-'em-ups. Let's examine this, shall we?
In a laboratory, you might see whole other worlds under the lens of a microscope. In Qlione Evolve, you'll attempt to subsist in similar, but much more dangerous, ecosystems.
It's a microbe-eat-microbe world in the liquid spaces of Qlione Evolve. As a tiny inhabitant in this microscopic top-view 2D world, your humble attempts to evolve will be in constant jeopardy as you are attacked (even shot at!) by the other denizens.
Luckily, your strange little creature can spawn bombs and traps that push and pull the surrounding liquid environment, making for turbulent physics-based battles. This is the unprecedented...
