143w ago - Background: I was tired of the fact that there was no decent resource for finding games based on their TITLE_ID and/or TITLE itself.
Soultion: I developed an online tool. It will allow you to submit a PS3 games "param.sfo" file, have the results not only outputted for you, but added to the PS3Index database. This way everybody can have access.
Problem: I only have a certain amount of backed up games for which I can index.
Soultion: You guys! I need as many people as possible to submit as many games as possible.
Usage Guide:PS3Index Guide (I recommend looking over the guide, it really will make large submissions easier.)
Hopefully we can get a heap of people to submit games and get a decent database going. I recognise that there are websites such as Sony Index, but they are far from complete. You can also just view the database in its current format.
If you have any problems/questions/complaints/compliments/ramblings leave them in this thread.
143w ago - Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Rey Gutierrez has posted up the new PS3, PSP and PSN releases for this coming week today, as follows:
This week delivers a long list of titles that will make your stack of backlogged games tower even higher.
I'm guilty of name dropping, especially when games like Slam Bolt Scrappers, Homefront and Parasite Eve arrive on PlayStation 3 and PsOne Classics this week.
You'll also get your chance to try PlayStation Move Heroes when the demo hits PSN, followed by demos for Mortal Kombat (open to all PSN users) and Crysis 2 Multiplayer.
Homefront - The year is 2027. The world has suffered a decade-long energy crisis, and economies have crumbled. Reduced to a mere shadow of the super power it once was, the United States became the target of a North Korean takeover.
Featuring a compelling single player story crafted by John Milius (Apocalypse Now, Red Dawn), Homefront immerses gamers in an interactive and cinematic FPS experience where they will assume an infantry role or take command of a wide variety of aerial and ground vehicles.
143w ago - A few weeks back we reported that Sony was hiring IP investigators as part of forming a PS3 anti-piracy program, and today Dutch site PSX-Sense (linked above) reports that they may also be recruiting PlayStation 3 hackers as well.
According to rumor, Sarah McRaecontactedKoushik Dutta regarding a Software Engineer position that is opening at SCEA.
To quote, roughly translated: Something we wouldn't expect from Sony; they are recruiting hackers for a job at SCEA. A hacker named Koush got an e-mail, which is 100% real, from Sarah McRae which works onsite at the Talent Acquisition department.
He had been asked for a job at the R&D Departmen at Sony, we're sure Koushik isn't the only hacker which has been contacted by Sony. As a proof Koush posted a screenshot of the e-mail.
