Sony PS4 Console in Development, AMD Building Graphics Tech?

1150°
144w ago - A few months back Sony stated that PlayStation 4 is expected to arrive with rival next-generation consoles, and today [Register or Login to view links] reports that PS4 is in development with AMD rumored to be building the system's graphics technology.

To quote: "Sony is working on an as-yet-unannounced new gaming console, former AMD employees say, and the processor designer may play a key role in the new product.

AMD's graphics technology is already used in Microsoft's XBox 360 console. However, Sony's PlayStation 3 - introduced in 2006 - relies on graphics technology from Nvidia.

AMD declined to comment on the project. Sony Chief Transformation Officer George Bailey also declined to discuss Sony's new console, or even acknowledge its existence.

However, at AMD's analyst day last month, AMD Chief Financial Officer Thomas Seifert identified gaming as one of several trends that will drive revenue growth at AMD in 2012."

  • Special thanks to Makoto Fujiwara and Tsubai Masanari for porting NetBSD to PS3.
  • Any help is welcome. Come on BSD fans, let us run NetBSD on PS3.

PS Vita Half Byte Loader (HBL) Development FAQ by Wololo

1300°
150w ago - Today PS Vita hacker wololo has made available a Half Byte Loader (HBL) development FAQ for those interested in progress thus far on Sony's PlayStation Vita handheld console.

Also below he [Register or Login to view links] that he has ported HBL for Teck4's exploit successfully and updated to EU/US versions.

To quote: I managed to port HBL to the US version of Teck4′s exploit in exactly 45 minutes (including writing the savedata exploit and the binary loader), which is a new personal record, thanks to the scripts included in HBL's repository, and also to the fact that the different versions of the game are internally fairly similar (which is to be expected because technically the game is supposed to be the same, just translated, but I seem to recall it wasn't that easy for the Hotshots golf exploit)

I also updated the EU/US versions of this HBL port to get the tweaks I worked on for the past weeks in order to get a fair amount of homebrews to work.

The next step for me is to write a bit of documentation on how to use all this, and then patiently wait. As far as a release is concerned... well check the FAQ I wrote yesterday.

I could spend time polishing...

To quote: I don't remember by whom but I'm reasonably certain I've been asked for this before and I suspect there is probably a handful of people that would find this useful. So here it is.

I've uploaded a compressed file that contains the (admittedly outdated) compiled copy of PSL1GHT that I've been using (and continue to use) for all of my recent PS3 homebrew.

The archive also includes the source code for They Do Not Die 2, We Are Nowhere, The Unmapped Forest, Slime Roll, Sketch Fight, Goodbye World, Don't Get Crushed, Cascade Beneath and Avoidance. Along with the source code is all of the related media.

How to use it (well running Ubuntu):

Just add the following text at the bottom of your bashrc file.
