133w ago - SingStar Content Manager Nina Scherer at London Studios has shared details on the SingStore PS3 releases for this week today, as follows:
Hello and welcome to the penultimate SingStore update of 2010!
And THIS time, let me start off with the song packs because I can hardly contain myself. It's true, ask anyone at SingStar HQ and they will tell you that I have probably been a little too excited about the brand new , exclusive and fantastic Bon Jovi: Rock song pack for a while now. What do they know, huh?
So, apart from the brand new, exclusive and fantastic Bon Jovi: Rock song pack (did I already mention that one?) we also have an equally brand new, exclusive and fantastic Sum 41 one on offer. How's that for some rock on the store? There is also a nice litte Meat Loaf collection plus two Essentials packs: Electro Pop and Pop Punk.
My top three songs this time are by Louis Armstrong, Mudhoney and Vic Reeves & The Wonder Stuff and I'll be practicing the 'Barbie Girl' song for definite!
If you haven't done so already make sure to check out our brand new website which we launched a couple of weeks ago. It's nice and shiny and you can do lots of fun stuff.
133w ago - Today Hermes has relased a port of the classic PC games Heretic & Hexen for PS3 JailBreak homebrew users. The included .pkg file is the front end of both the games, but due to copyrights the game files are not included.
The quote from Hermes post on Spanish Web site Elotrolado (linked above), roughly transleted by me with help from babelfish:
In order to celebrate that PSL1GHT already beginning to have a good foundation and with the addition of the PS3 Soundlib that allows it to reproduce up to 16 voices of sound, I have ported two classic games from the PC to PS3 that make use of multiple effects: The games Heretic and Hexen.
In order for them, to work they require wads HERETIC.WAD and HEXEN.WAD respectively (shareware or full retail will work, in capital letters and with that name) that must be copied in the directory of the EBOOT.BIN, within the folder " heretic" and " hexen" respectively, on a USB device. When starting the game, if it has been installed in hard disk (by means of PKG) the option to press CIRCLE to copy the content of the folders " heretic" or " hexen" from device USB to the installation folder of the...

We're only a few weeks shy of wrapping up another amazing year for PlayStation 3, which begs the question -- what were your favorite gaming moments or titles to drop in 2010, and what would you like to see from team PlayStation in the new year?
Dead Nation - Sometime in the not-too-distant future, a deadly virus is once again sweeping the globe, infecting everyone in its path and killing off almost all the human race. To the horror of the survivors, the dead have begun rising from the grave, hell-bent on feeding on the living and wiping out mankind for good. But, just as it seems all is lost, a small pocket of survivors emerges, determined to take back the world from the undead.

To make your exciting escape, you can stop time and rearrange 81 levels in 10 worlds thanks to the PlayStation Move motion controller or a DualShock 3 wireless controller.

To quote from Dukio.com (linked above): Well, I think it's going to be a good framework for any new enthusiastic developer who wish to start in the ever growing PS3 Jailbreak scene. Below are the changelog for the recent refactoring work that has been done by him to his PL3 git.

Make send_eth compatible with FUNC_PTR and add a _res variant
Add proper ifndef/define/endif to all .h.S files
Port all payloads to the new pl3.h.S framework
Factor out the code to hook the hvsc instructions into its own file
