Guide: How To Make Your Own PS3 Themes

50°
341w ago - Courtesy of the PlayStation Blog today: Hi, folks!

My name's Noel Silvia, and I'm a Graphic Artist and part of the PlayStation Network team.

I'm here today to walk you through how to make and install your own Themes for your PLAYSTATION 3. All you'll need are:

- an image editing program (MSPaint, Adobe PhotoShop, etc.)
- the provided "compiler" program
- a little time

Start by downloading the "HowToMakePS3Themes.zip".zip file HERE and extracting it onto your computer.

In this zip are folders with the necessary files for each step of the process.

Step 1: Create

Let's start at the very beginning.

- In this folder, you'll find the images that make the XMB, its sub-icons, and the background wallpapers for HD and SD resolutions.
- There is also a file called "PS3Theme_template.xml", but we'll come back to that a little later.
- It's important that you don't change any of the file names in this folder. If you do, it will cause problems later on.
- Start by deciding...
 

Guide: Use Your PS3 to Download Torrent Files

550°
341w ago - Ken_vs_ryu has found a way to download torrent files directly to the PS3 without using a client.

Here are the instructions on downloading torrents directly to the PS3 via TorrentRelay, please use with caution and intelligence:

1. Find a torrent file link.
2. Copy .torrent link (ie: www.mininova.org/get/########)
3. Go to http://torrentrelay.com
4. Click on the 2nd input box with [Get URL] next to it, and type in the link from step #2.
5. Click on [Get URL].
6. Click on the file you want. It will list all the files available on the torrent.
7. Save As dialog should pop up.
8. We only tried an MP3, and it was downloaded directly into the Music folder. Video below:





Note: This really isn't good for the torrent community since the PS3 cannot seed files, but it's interesting that it's possible.
 

19 year-old Gamer becomes Mayor of Oklahoma town

50°
342w ago - Voters in Oklahoma made history by electing a 19-year-old college kid as their mayor.

The AP reports that John Tyler Hammons, the University of Oklahoma freshman, trounced 70 year-old Hershel McBride to become the mayor of Muskogee, Oklahoma, making it the first city in the nation to be governed by a self-admitted gamer.

But while he could own any of his peers at Halo 3, the fresh-faced leader is turning his sights on cleaning up the town's politics by establishing an independent ethics commission and locking down campaign finance reporting.

"I'm sure the (city) council will work with me on these issues," he said. "I campaigned on this, and this is something I intend to push."

Tired of the same old political shenanigans, the townsfolk are backing their new man.

"He doesn't have the baggage. He doesn't owe anybody anything," said cafe owner Gary Armstrong. "It's sort of a fresh start for Muskogee."

Best known as the subject of country legend Merle Haggard's 1969 hit "Okie from Muskogee," the unassuming city of 38,000 is considered the archetype of virtuous, small town America, a "place where even squares can have a ball."

And now, so can gamers.
 

Kojima: Americans Brag, PS3 No Letdown, Kotaku is Wrong

50°
344w ago - No, no, no! When Hideo Kojima said the MGS4 graphics on the PS3 weren't to his "satisfaction" or that he realized there were lots of "restrictions" the PS3 posed, he didn't mean it. He was just trying to be humble, you know!

He's not disappointed with the PS3 at all. He is totally happy with it. The PS3 is awesome. Says Kojima:

"On the Internet, there's stuff saying "Hideo Kojima" isn't satisfied with the PS3. I'd like to talk about that today. I just got back from Paris and did 15 interviews and everyone asked me about it, did I say that. The meaning of what I said has totally been changed, made totally different. Today, I'd like to talk about that. Why did it turn into that?

When I'm doing an interview, I answer in Japanese, and I can't control how the writer will interpret that into English... What I say is then translated in English, and the writer then changes that into their own words and writes that. So, right there, the meaning of what I say changes a lot."

"I am Japanese, so I try to be modest. I'm an especially modest person. I dont wish to brag about it to say "I am the amazing Metal Gear guy" or to say "This is the best one", just like how Americans brag stuff like this... That's why I interview in Japanese, and Mr. Sai (translator) translates my side of the...
