103w ago - Today Namco Bandai Games Community Manager Rich Bantegui has posted up the first video footage of Shinobido 2: Revenge Of Zen for PlayStation Vita.
To quote: We're nearly two months away from the launch of the PS Vita here in North America and Europe on February 22nd, 2012 - and as many of you know NAMCO BANDAI Games will be bringing Acquire's epic assassin tale of vengeance and betrayal to the PS Vita on DAY ONE!
If you aren't familiar with Acquire's work, they have a killer pedigree having worked on series' like Tenchu and Way of the Samurai, so you can bet your lucky ninja stars that their next epic will be impaling the competition on day one.
Let us know what you think of this first video in the comments section, and join me in my campaign in convincing the @PlayStationEU team to give me a PS Vita early.
The teasing and taunting continues and I need one YESTERDAY. Also, keep your eyes right here in the coming days and weeks when we kick off an exclusive series of blogs and info from the developers themselves. Get HYPED my friends, NAMCO BANDAI Games and PS Vita are going to be in full effect this February....
103w ago - Shortly after the PS Vita PKG AES Key news from SKFU, mamosuke reports that Japanese PlayStation Vita developer teck4 is rumored to have discovered a PSP Save Game v6.31 exploit that works on PS Vita and is demonstrated by the typical Hello World pictured below.
To quote, roughly translated: The title of the PSP PlayStation Vita (only available for PSN) is to launch the strength of the Vita. What worries me is the save game exploit what works for PSP, PS Vita me to try to work immediately on Mr. teck4 owns a PSP save game exploit unpublished.
The result was of course also take over the vulnerability of the PSP. Hello World at PS Vita (own code) can be performed.
PS Vita PSP at the first place only because it is emulation, emulator running on the fact that just because we can run your own code does not change much. So while hacking into the system are reproduced in an environment that is running on the PSP will own code.
Half-start at the maximum of the PSP Homebrew Byte Loader (reproduction of) is enough. Some might suspect that I'll not do...
103w ago - Following up on the PS Vita 1.50 Firmware announcement comes news this weekend from PlayStation Vita hacker SKFU who has confirmed the PS Vita PKG AES Key has changed.
To quote from his blog: I just got my tried to unpack the Twitter application for PS VITA and sadly I have to say that the AES key for PKG encryption and decryption changed.
The PKG's I used for my testings were pretty old and the key update was expected. Nevertheless it's a bit disappointing but a new nice challange
The PS3 can decrypt the new packages on firmware 4.00 which contains the new PS VITA PKG AES key for the PS3 <--> PS VITA content exchange feature. This means we can decrypt and get the content of the PS VITA PKG files via a 4.00 PS3. Sadly there's no solution to re-encrypt it again, yet.
104w ago - BBC Worldwide Executive Producer Simon Harris has announced today that Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock is coming to PS3 and PS Vita with a video trailer available below.
To quote: Developing anything for Doctor Who has to be done right. The show has such a following that we need to be certain that everything the game does fits with the expectations of the fans.
So far, we've said very, very little about the game. This trailer just has the barest hints about the core of this story. What is The Eternity Clock? How is it related to the Doctor? How is River involved in this?
I'm afraid this post isn't going to answer any of these questions; we'll leave that to future posts and the game itself.
We're very excited to be working with Supermassive Games as they've already delivered some great titles for PlayStation, such as Tumble, Start The Party and Start The Party: Save the World. The team are huge fans of the show and they've been great at bringing the key essence of Doctor Who into the game.
Working on PlayStation Vita, as well as PS3, is a real privilege and its unique set of features has allowed our designers to cut loose and we'll tell you a lot more detail about how we're...
