850°
188w ago - The first version of an open source toolchain for PS3 is available today courtesy of ooPo, meaning a possibility to create PlayStation 3 hombrew without requiring the Sony SDK.

Download: Open Source PS3 Toolchain

From the included ReadMe file:

What does this do?

This program will automatically build and install a compiler and other tools used in the creation of homebrew software for the Sony PlayStation 3 videogame system.

How do I use it?

1) Set up your environment by installing the following software:

autoconf, automake, bison, flex, gcc, make, makeinfo, patch, subversion, wget

2) Add the following to your login script:

export PS3DEV=/usr/local/ps3dev
export PATH=$PATH:$PS3DEV/bin
export PATH=$PATH:$PS3DEV/ppu/bin
export PATH=$PATH:$PS3DEV/spu/bin

3) Run the toolchain script:

./toolchain.sh

Where do I go from here?

NullDC / PCSX2 WIP PS3 Ports in Development

800°
189w ago - Today PuppetMaster reports that drk||Raziel has just announced he is working on porting NullDC and PCSX2 to Sony's PS3 entertainment system.

For those unaware, NullDC is a DreamCast emulator and PCSX2 is a PS2 emulator, with the official news update below, to quote:

"Well, sometimes you just can't get free from your projects as easily as you want to. So, seeing as there wasn't much interest in nulldc's source I started to work at it again ! (And yes, of course it will remain open source).

So, I'm officially again working on nullDC! There's a bank of ideas on the wiki on what I plan to do. We're also planning to get the project side back up and stuff.

Leaving that aside, I'd also like to ask for donations. The project hasn't really asked for donations so far (except specific cases, like the Pandora port that required hardware to be brought). As I'm running quite low on money I'll open up donations for the project.

Donated money will be used for: Getting a ps3, porting/working on nullDC/pcsx2 for ps3, getting a jtag'd xbox to port stuff to it, and finally to pay for server/misc hardware fees."

To quote from French site PS3Gen, roughly translated: "Motorstorm 3, which is still not officially announced, had been a blunder with a photograph that showed a player connected to the PlayStation Network playing with "Motorstorm 3: the first playable demo.

Of course, this information had not been commented on by Sony beyond the traditional "no comment".

Since February, the domain name www.motorstorm3.com was filed by the giant Nippon and, for the moment, returns to the official PlayStation site. Nevertheless, Sony continuously not confirm the release of this game.

Today, they are images 'stolen' which offer an extra buzz. After a sunny and cold nature,...
