126w ago - Today Sony Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has made available a new video showcasing the definitive version of Mass Effect 2 on PlayStation 3.
To quote: If you had asked me a year ago if I thought we'd ever experience the Mass Effect universe on PlayStation 3, I'd have said "I sure hope so."
One year and dozens of accolades and Game of the Year nominations later, Mass Effect 2 is coming to PS3. And from what I've learned, you're not going to want to pass on this "definitive" experience.
After a recent hands-on session, I spoke with Bioware's Casey Hudson. In this video, he tells us what bonus features are included on the Blu-ray, what the power of PlayStation 3 lends to the game, and how the PS3 version is using the latest-and-greatest graphical technology and gameplay updates.
So, you might be wondering, will you be lost if you never got to play the original Mass Effect? From my experience, the answer is: not particularly. For the PS3 version of Mass Effect 2, Bioware has teamed with Dark Horse Comics to summarize the first game in a 15 minute comic-style adaption, completely...

132w ago - Following up on his previous work, this weekend Spanish PS3 developer PS3MrEnigma has released source code for a PS3 tool that can be used to test and obtain model version data (20/40/60/80 etc) on various PlayStation 3 systems.
To quote, roughly translated: "In this post I introduce a small tool that will allow us to know more about the model of our machines.
The usefulness of this tool is simply to show on screen the data returned by the SYSCALL 0 Ã-- 363 with the parameter 0 Ã-- 19004 to get the model and submodel, make that application to accurately check all machines possible that the data. We returned in byte 5 and byte 7 always correspond in the case of same model and submodel machine.
Bearing in mind that I could only have access to 4 machines when performing the post explaining the SYSCALL 0 Ã-- 363 , which is why as many people can give their feedback or report on the blog with the data and specifying what type of machine has (Slim or Phat, and submodel (60, 40, etc)) together with the data we created the tool would be easier to...
