Sony Estimates the Number of Actual PlayStation Network Users

287w ago - During Sony's quarterly earnings report, there was a Q&A held between Sony executives and market analysts, and Robert Wiesenthal - Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Sony America - revealed, to quote:

"I think right now close to half of our users have opted to sign up to the [PlayStation] network, and I think it's running on track, and we are expecting really great things this year from it".

Not an exact statistic, sure, but it gives us a rough idea. There are 23 million PS3 consoles out there. If "close to half" of all PS3 users have signed up, that gives us around 11 million people actually signed up to the PSN on their PS3's.

Not sure whether he also included the PSP in that statement, but seeing as online use hasn't been as important for that system to date, we'd say he's not.

All in all, that's a pretty healthy number!

Video: LEU-Loader OtherOS v1.0 for PlayStation 3 Linux

287w ago - This seems like intresting stuff going on.. LEU-Loader OtherOS v1.0 for PlayStation 3 Linux.

To quote, roughly translated: Some time ago we started this project, known as LEU (Launcher Emulators for USB), as you know I care for every detail to make it pleasant and comfortable to use.

To start LEU Linux as it is you need a BootLoader.. usually used in terminal mode type which makes text more compliacado use.

In our case this is, graphics adapters to the environment we want to LEU to reach wider audience and that people lose that fear of the word Linux.

BootLoader has very interesting things like:

• Power-Track Initiative SixAxis
• Recognizes LEUs icon which will be installed (USB)
• Recognizes disc, marking an installation disk icon
• Recognizes HDD with Linux installation
• And finally we have a very cool key indicators from the new XMB that is created from the code Petitboot.

The video that shows how the LEU Loader is being used in conjunction with RAW iSO.
