Video: Monster Hunter is Coming to PlayStation Portable

200°
294w ago - Capcom Product Marketing Manager Colin Ferris shared some details on the upcoming Monster Hunter PSP title as follows:

The upcoming release of Monster Hunter Freedom Unite is exciting to everyone involved in the title. For those who don't know, Monster Hunter puts you on the hunt for a variety of majestic beasts that you have to defeat in order to become the ultimate hunter.

With thousands of different types of weapons and armor, as well as over 500 hours of gameplay, this is the most engrossing action/RPG title for the PSP ever created.

What really makes the game shine, however, is the excellent multiplayer that makes use of the PSP's built-in Ad-hoc multiplayer.





Join with three of your friends to hunt monsters that you simply couldn't defeat on your own. Playing the game with friends is truly the best way to play it, and with the PSP's network abilities, everyone has their own screen to play on.

Though we've had an awesome group of core fans in the US, our goal is to let everyone experience the adventure with Monster Hunter this time around. To introduce you all to the world of Monster Hunter, we've put together this "newscast" with our intrepid reporter covering the imminent onslaught of monsters...
 

PS3 Linux SDL Video Support Patch Now Available!

500°
294w ago - Just before the weekend, slouken posted (linked above) the following PS3 Linux SDL video support patch news:

Hello. This patch provides basic support for video on the Sony PS3 Linux framebuffer.

Scaling, format-conversion, and drawing is done from the SPEs, so there is little performance impact to PPE applications.

This is by no means production quality code, but it is a very good start and a good example of how to use the PS3's hardware capabilities to accelerate video playback on the box.

The driver has been verified to work with ffplay, mplayer and xine. This piece of software has been developed at the IBM R&D Lab in Boeblingen, Germany and is now returned to the community. Enjoy !
