Guide: How to Change the Region of Your PS3 Blu-ray Drive

100°
156w ago - Ever since the first PS3 JailBreak was out i was hoping for a region patcher so I can watch all the blu ray discs i own no matter if region a/b/c and nobody ever knew how... after lots of research and checking around i present to you 3 patch*.txt files for lv2 patcher!

Download: PS3 Blu-ray Region Patches and LV2 Patcher / PS3 LV2 Patcher BD Region Changer by bitsbubba

just copy the files into: /dev_hdd0/game/LV2000000/USRDIR

and the next time you start lv2 patcher you will have 3 new patches to choose from (region a/b/c)

once you patch you don't have to restart your ps3, it works right away! if you restart your ps3 the bd region is set to standard again.

tested & working for me on pal cechcxx machine with 3.55cfw (rebug & kmeaw) using kmeaw's lv2 patcher v9!

this only works for blu ray and nothing else, for dvd the old xregistry trick applies... i didn't code anything, just collected and tested, sources for this can be found here:

European PSN Game Store Updates for April 20, 2011

100°
156w ago - SCEE's Ross McGrath of the PlayStation Store Team is here with this weeks European PSN updates, as follows:

First of all - you asked for it, we listened - in the Latest section you'll find a new tab called 'New This Week', which is exactly the way the old Latest section used to be.

So if you want to see everything that's dropped in the update, that's where you should head first. Don't say we never do anything for you.

We've got loads of gaming goodness for you this week, including the launch of The Fancy Pants Adventures, Battle: Los Angeles and Red Johnson's Chronicles.

Fancy Pants Adventures tasks you and up to three friends (online or offline!) with traversing the line drawn world in search of your kidnapped sister - if you've played the Flash game of the same name you'll know the score. This version turns the Fancy Pants formula up to 11 and comes highly recommended.

Battle: Los Angeles is the movie tie-in game for the recent alien invasion blockbuster - kick the aliens off your planet and protect the human race in this first person shooter.

Red Johnson's Chronicles follows in the footsteps of BTTF and Sam and Max, you play as the titular Red Johnson as he attempts to solve the mystery of the murder surrounding...

156w ago - SCEA's Santa Monica Producer Tsubasa Inaba has confirmed today that The Last Guardian and Ico/Shadow of the Colossus Collection for PS3 are officially delayed.

To quote: SCEA can confirm that we are officially delaying release of Ico/Shadow of the Colossus Collection as well as The Last Guardian from their respective launch timeframes of Spring '11 and Holiday '11. We will provide more information regarding release timing at a later date.

Here are a few words from The Last Guardian Director/Game Designer, Fumito Ueda:

I announced at last year's Tokyo Game Show that the release timing of The Last Guardian which is currently being developed would be holiday 2011.

However, to provide more challenging and better quality of content to users and to fulfill First Party Studio's obligations, I decided to postpone its release timing.

All the members of my production team are working together at a fast pace to develop and release the game in First Party Studio quality.

I sincerely apologize to all the customers who have been waiting for "The Last Guardian" for so long, but I beg for your patience. I will also announce the new release timing at a later time.
