From the ReadMe file: Set on your PS3 a web proxy of (PC IP) port 8080
IE: if the machine you are to be running this proxy on is 192.168.0.12 then put that as the IP and 8080 as the port in the PS3 network configuration for your web proxy.
If 3.56 is still current, just run the app and click start. If 3.60 or later is now out, change the 3.5600 value in required PS3 version to 3.6000 or similar.

156w 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.
