Video: Has Sony's PlayStation Home Been Hacked?

700°
285w ago - It's too early to tell if this is just a bug, glitch, or if someone actually hacked Sony's PlayStation Home server to change the message for all PS3's, however, what is confirmed thus far is that numerous people have experienced the same issue.

That being said, lorello1978 shared a video on YouTube which states the following, via rough translation:

I turned on the PS3, I started Home, I did the upgrade required. Restarted the console, at one point turning in Home in my house, I noticed a terrible slowdown, as to seem a lag of the modem.

Not understanding why and thinking: "I like the fiber optic connection and I have a 320GB inside ... why !?!?"





I open the console window in Home and I go to see the messages and news, to see what improvements have brought the new upgrade...

Then I read these things a little reassuring that you see in the video. Someone knows what happens? I am the only one?
 

New FragFX v2 FPS Controller Coming to PlayStation 3

285w ago - Digital Battle claims that a new controller dubbed the [Register or Login to view links] is coming to the PlayStation 3, one which better emulates the mouse-and-keyboard combination which PC users have long touted as superior to console controls when it comes to first-person shooters.

And as an aside, I'm not claiming them right or wrong, as it's really not my genre, so I can't really vouch either way.

To quote: A new peripheral for the PS3 is being released in ninety days that'll allow console gamers to achieve a slice of that pinpoint accuracy.

It's actually two controllers, and unfortunately for any lefties it's obviously designed only for right handed gamers as the buttons on the mouse are located on the left side for easy thumb access. The other controller is a bit like a Wiimote, with its own analog stick and d-pad.

I would definitely take this one with a grain of salt - the article claims it will be out in 90 days. Sure, we may very well see something in that time, but given the multiple delays I wouldn't hold my breath.
