Make_PKG PS3 Homebrew PKG Application By D0zs Arrives

550°
150w ago - This weekend PlayStation 3 hacker d0zs has made available a PS3 homebrew PKG building application along with source code.

Download: Make_PKG / Make_PKG SRC Code / UnSELF_Then_Make_PKG

From the developer: This tool provides the ability to auto-compile PS3 HG based pkg's. Just a straight forward pkg builder, doesn't require cygwin, doesn't modify the eboot or param, gets the job done much quicker than my old patcher. same folder structure, drag - drop, etc.

Fixed many potential bugs, also made it intercept psn_package_npdrm's output so you can see it work.

I originally posted make_pkg because I saw Mr GoodFrag's tutorial using one of my old very poorly coded patcher to compile the pkg.

So since I had coded make_pkg for myself some months ago, I figured it could save people using that tutorial the hassle of compiling pkg's and so I went ahead and posted it.

But unfortunately, when I do post something, it's almost always buggy because I haven't thoroughly tested it for...
 

Metal Gear and Zone of the Enders HD Collections Hitting PS3

500°
150w ago - Today Kotaku (linked above) and Andriasang report that both Metal Gear and Zone of the Enders HD Collections are now slated to hit Sony's PS3 entertainment system.

To quote: Metal Gear, Zone of the Enders Return With HD Collections Konami announced today that two of its most popular franchises, Metal Gear Solid and Zone of the Enders, will be getting HD compilation re-releases on the PlayStation 3 and, for the first time, will also see action on the Xbox 360.

The Metal Gear pack, due in November, will include Metal Gear Solid 2, Metal Gear Solid 3 and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. These games will now feature HD graphics, new art, remastered audio and achievements.

The Zone of the Enders collection, meanwhile, includes Zone of the Enders and Zone of the Enders 2 (and will boast the same improved/added features as the MGS pack). It'll be out in 2012.

Both packs will also boast a similar feature to the recently-unveiled PSP Remaster series, which Konami is calling "Transfarring". This will allow users to, when playing a game like Peace Walker that will be available on both handheld and console, transfer their saves between the two.

The company also unveiled plans for a Silent Hill HD collection....
 

Video: Under Siege PS3 Strategy Game is Now Available on PSN

200°
150w ago - This weekend Under Siege Producer Filipe Pina has announced that the new PS3 strategy game Under Siege is now available on PSN.

To quote: Our little big game is now on sale on the PlayStation Store! Under Siege is an action and strategy game in real time, where a small group of heroes fight against a huge invading army.

We developed Under Siege to be played with the DualShock 3 controller and it also supports the PlayStation Move motion controller. We also boost lots of cool features like video recording, custom music, and video chat. The game even runs in full 1080p in Dolby Digital 5.1.

Under Siege is now available for $19.99 ($10.00 for PlayStation Plus users) and suppers six languages: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese. It includes a full campaign, two-player multiplayer online and local play, and the same Editor used by us to create the game itself.





The Editor is one of the most important features we put in Under Siege. We started production on it before making the game so we that made sure our level designers created everything directly on a PS3 with a DualShock 3. This way, it was possible to keep on upgrading and improving the features and usability while the game was being made.
