143w ago - SCEE's Ross McGrath of the PlayStation Store Team is here with this weeks European PSN Game Store updates today, as follows:
We're launching a new round of Special Offers - this time with a special PlayStation Move focus to help you get the most out of your magic wands.
We've got some great third party titles like Flight Control HD, DeadStorm Pirates, Planet Minigolf and Swords and Soldiers at as much as 50% off, and some of our great Move-enabled first party PSN games too. Take a look and see if anything grabs your attention.
In the field of new titles we've got Slambolt Scrappers from our friends at SOE - a game that combines Tetris, Tower Defence and maybe... Joust? Try it, you might well like it!
Demo-tastic today as well, with the Crysis 2 Multiplayer demo, Heroes demo and Tiger Woods, so plenty of options to choose from.
DLC today too - you can expand your roster in Marvel vs Capcom 3, expand your décor in The Sims 3 or expand your fish collection in My Aquarium. So go... expand!
You may have noticed that the PSone title we've got this week, while undeniably awesome, has slightly less in the way of the living-challenged, sinister mansions and poor voice acting than perhaps I had led you to believe last week. I'm sorry guys...

From Logic-Sunrise, roughly translated: Remember, Naima was the first to have released a custom firmware (cfw) to directly connect to PSN or via Charles FckPSN.
Although since the ITA allow CFW to connect to the network without special configuration and especially without a computer, Naima back on center stage. Indeed, always starting the same basis as the cfw Kmeaw, Naima leaves a second...
143w ago - Just over a week ago PlayStation 3 hacker Mathieulh confirmed finding a PS3 3.56 Exploit, and today drizzthacks tweeted part of an IRC chat log where Mathieulh stated the following regarding PS3 Firmware 3.60 running homebrew code, as follows:
"[03:15] while you are insulting me like morons, I already have code running on 3.60, and I am laughing, and guess what ? I am happy I stopped sharing, you can hate me for it, I don't care."
He followed up with the following Tweets: To those planning on building a 3.56+ pup for whatever reason, the files attributes changed, the group and user ids for the files as well. The new 3.56+ values for tarballs are the following: owner_id, “0000764″ group_id, “0000764″ owner, “tetsu” group, “tetsu” ustar, “ustar”
You can use fix_tar to use those new values. Use with caution. By comparison, those are the pre-3.56 values. owner_id, “0001752″ group_id, “0001274″ owner, “pup_tool” group, “psnes” ustar, “ustar”
