209w ago - Sanuk Games Manager Yan Marchal has announced that starting today PlayStation Hysteria Project is now available on both PSP and PS3 Minis via PSN.

To quote: Today we are releasing the "Minis" version of an award-winning horror game: Hysteria Project.

In Hysteria Project, YOU are the hero! Step into the shoes of the main character and take part in an unforgettable adventure! Will you make the right decisions and make it out in one piece?

Hysteria Project is a groundbreaking gaming experience where you are the hero of an entirely filmed adventure. Keep a sharp eye on what's going on around you and make the right choices at the right time. Have you got the guts to be next on the list?

The original version of Hysteria Project, released by Bulkypix, won the "Revelation 2009" Milthon award in Paris, and was praised by fans of new experiences and thrill-seekers.

Levi Buchanan of IGN.com wrote: "HYSTERIA PROJECT reminded me of those old FMV games I used to play on my SEGA CD as a guilty pleasure – but this one only cost me two bucks for the same level of enjoyment".

Hysteria Project is available today for PSP and PS3 at the price of € 1.49 / £ 1.24.

Project: Service Mode PS3 Arrives, PS3 Dev Work in Progress

750°
226w ago - We finally managed to obtain a fully operational Service Mode PlayStation 3 system, so PS3 Dev work is in progress. As it came a few days ago, we have not had too much time to play with it yet, but will soon!

We did some work on one from flurix a while back, but alas, the unit did not function fully. Luckily, this unit we got works perfectly.

For a little background, it is a CECHA00 unit, which makes it a 60gb Japaneese PS3 model, first generation - full of backwards compatability, card readers and WiFi!

It appears to be a returned unit, as it was packed in a CECHE box, and had a false CECHE serial on it. From what we know to date, the first thing that happens when a unit hits Sony is to be reset into PS3 Service Mode via the PS3 USB JIG.

After this, the serial number on the back is scanned. We assume at this point they realized it was false, and sent it back, not repaired. Since it was sent back, it was still, luckily, in Service Mode - letting us obtain of it!

Our project goal is to be...

Project: OurOS Bootloader for PS3 Linux in Development

300°
250w ago - Similar to both the Petitboot Bootloader and pdaXrom-NG Bootloader for PS3 Linux, the OurOS project in development is a Linux-based user interface for the PS3.

To quote: It's goals are to provide an easy to install and easy to use graphical environment for the OtherOS platform.

Easy to install means a user will just have to install an otheros.bld file using the XMB and have a storage device available (USB storage device or OtherOS partitioned internal HDD).

Easy to use means no messing around with package managers or command lines, since we know what the hardware is we can forgo a lot of the usual linux setup tasks. And since we're only targeting certain applications we do not need the normal linux style package management system and can use something simple and self contained.

From a developers perspective OurOS will provide a consistent environment to target, and will also come with a ready to use toolchain.

The only download to date is a Skeleton PS3 Driver for DirectFB-1.4.0, however,...
 

Project: PS3SDK Collaborative Development Effort

100°
250w ago - Over the weekend, the folks at PS2Dev.org (linked above) have began a collaborative development effort in hopes of finally getting a freeware (non-Sony) legal PS3SDK rolling similar to the popular PS2SDK project.

To quote mc: Well, we've all heard the rumors about ongoing PS3SDK development efforts, but so far nobody has shown any code.

I think the main problem with getting a PS3SDK out the door is that it's a rather large project for one or two persons to undertake, so eventually anyone who tries on his own will get stuck and/or fed up.

So what I'd like to do is invite to a collaborative effort, and the correct way to do this is of course to present all the code I have so far, and allow people to start expanding it.

What I have currently is a small multithreading kernel (supports use of both HW threads), integration with newlib, and some simple GPU support.

There are plenty of work packages for interested parties to get down with, including (but not limited to)

• Interrupt handling
• A more sophisticated MMU driver
• Networking
• USB (the driver in mcload can't be used as it contains GPL code)
• Storage drivers and filesystems
• SPE support...
