Video: StarCraft Running on the PS3 via Qemu & YDL with Guide!

250°
282w ago - Using Yellow Dog Linux on the PlayStation 3, efaustus9 used Qemu to emulate Windows 95 on the platform, allowing him to run StarCraft. To quote:

Want to run windows apps on your PS3? Windows runs on about 90% of home computers, consequently most software and games are designed for that OS. Wine is a good option for running windows apps in linux.

However it requires a x86 CPU and thus will not run on the PPC processor found in the ps3. So how do you run windows apps on the ps3? Qemu is how. Qemu runs windows in virtualization. Not the most efficient way to run win apps but it works.





In this video I use Qemu to emulate the relatively resource light Windows 95 in yellow dog linux on the ps3. I also use the fscaler tool to utilize the cells spe's and enlarge the image with out taking a performance hit.

As you can see the classic starcraft is quite playable all from the comfort of my living room. Want to try the same on your PS3? Check out my [Register or Login to view links].

Video: PATAPON 2 for Sony's PS3: It's Pata-Pata-Pata-ON!

50°
282w ago - SCEA Associate Producer Chris Hinojosa-Miranda shared a Patapon 2 video for PlayStation 3 today along with the following update:

It was a year ago (plus one day) that millions of spear-wielding, music-loving, monster-fighting, stew-making, desert-crossing, drum-beating Eyeballs invaded homes across America with their hypnotic mind-altering songs.

It was on that day that the skies darkened with spears and arrows; it was this day that Zigoton blood saturated the earth. Many Patapon's fell during the great battle for Earthend... and those who survived... well you know how the story ends.





So to honor this great and momentous holiday, this Day of days, we here at SCEA feel that its only fair to officially announce that the tribal drums of war have started to beat once again... the dark hour of dance-battle is upon us... Patapon 2 is in the horizon! Oh-Yeah!

The team has worked hard to create a sequel worthy for all the Pata-Fans out there. We doubled the missions you play, amped up the number of bosses, added more Patapon troops, and revamped the Patapon evolution system to Darwinian levels.

Oh, and we added Multiplayer. WOO-HOO!!!

I know you all must have millions of questions, so know this: in the coming...

Rumor has it that a more stable DaedalusX64 BETA 2 build is coming soon, but those interested can check out Daedalus Rev 306 running Mario 64 at nearly full speed.

To quote from the video's caption: Well you get the idea.. Its another boring day and you just happen to have a PSP with the new Daedalus Rev 306.
