PS3 NAND Extractor Update & More!

50°
349w ago - Mainman has updated his PS3 NAND Extractor/UnPacker to v0.4 recently! Changes to the latest revision include support for multiple dumps. The NAND Tool now scans for files, versus using a fixed position making it much more robust with extracting files.

It includes BETA support for the 40gb PlayStation 3 flash, however, we are still working out a few major bugs prior to a public release.

As mentioned above, extraction now dumps the files, plus additional data including the IDL section. It extracts the MAC Address, and also dumps the asecure loader section. More on this soon..

In other news, we are waiting for the InFeCtuS Team to update their program to support the new Samsung Flash revision, so we can experiment more with our recently discovered PS3 downgrading technique. Until then, not much new to report on this area yet.

Finally, we have been successful with running PS3 Retail game back-ups on a PS3 Test from both Internal and USB HDD (along with DVD). Unlike PS2 and PS1 development systems, a PS3 Test won't play a 1:1 copy/scene release.

It only plays development copies, so the executables (EBOOT.BIN) had to be decrypted and rebuilt for them to load. However, as mentioned previously,...
 

Netflix says chooses Blu-ray format over HD DVD

349w ago - Online rental giant Netflix has confirmed that it will exclusively stock high definition films in the Blu-ray disc format by year's end, following Warner's decision to back the format over HD DVD technology.

It's worth pointing out that other online film rental services, such as Blockbuster Online, still plan to support both formats – but with the odds stacking up in favor of Blu-ray, who knows for how long. :P
 

F.Y.E backs Blu-ray, will special order HD DVD for customers

50°
352w ago - Retailer Trans World has said it will will be giving more catalog room to Blu-ray titles than HD-DVD and they plan to only order key new releases on HD-DVD. They say they don't want to be biased but this seems to be the direction that high-def production is going.

However they have said they will special order non key HD-DVD titles if a customer requests so. Trans World Entertainment Corporation is a chain of entertainment media retail stores, with 800 F.Y.E stores.

To quote: "We are waiting to hear more about what [HD DVD] hardware manufacturers decide to do, but I think one thing we can all agree on as retailers, is that consumer confusion is leading to a delay in buying a format," said Mark Higgins, Trans World VP of DVD, videogames and consumer electronics merchandising. "They don't want to buy into another Betamax. As retailers, we need to simplify things for the consumers as much as we can with merchandising one format. We don't want to be biased, but that is clearly the direction that high-def production looks to be going."

"Based on the way the playing field is shaping up, you'll see BD with more prominence in stores," said Victor Fuentes, VP and divisional merchandise manager at Hastings. He said it was because of "the sheer number of titles coming from the majority...
