X-Box 360 HD-DVD Emulator Now Free!

100°
354w ago - Back in December 2007, Microsoft released an HD-DVD emulator toolkit for film studios and disc authoring companies to test out their projects before printing them off to an actual HD-DVD disc.

The piece of kit carried a hefty price tag - $2,999 to be exact. But now? It's free, seeing as HD-DVD is dead and all!

Those inserted in tinkering around with the emulator for learning purposes can send a request for a download link over at Microsoft's Web site.

Refunds will be issued to those who previously had paid for the emulator in full.

357w 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.
