Hyperdimension Neptunia for PS3: Console Gaming Personified

50°
199w ago - NIS America Marketing Coordinator Ryan Phillips has shared details on Hyperdimension Neptunia for PlayStation 3 today, describing the upcoming PS3 title as console gaming personified.

To quote: I just wanted to stop by to provide you with some tasty tidbits about [Register or Login to view links] for PS3. The epic tale of the meek Neptune, Compa, and IF on their search for Histoire is headed to the U.S. and I wanted to talk more in-depth about the game.

The battle system in Hyperdimension Neptunia provides customizable, varied approaches to gameplay. Each character is able to build combos against mobs and bosses, and depending on how you decide to link or structure your four-command combo, some really powerful abilities and really long chains can be created.

For example, you can use an ability called "Skill Link" as the final hit in your combo chain that will allow combinations to string together and restore some AP (action points) and create higher hit and damage counts.

In other words, if you create a combo as X, X, O, O, with the final O using "Skill Link," you will begin a new combo with O as the first command. Then, you can chain your second combo like, say O, X, X, X, with the final X using "Skill Link,"...

200w ago - After being delayed for several days pending some bugs and features, we're proud to release SynaPS3 - PS3 compatibility, backup and homebrew library with all but 1 intended release feature!

Download: SynaPS3 / [Register or Login to view links]

SynaPS3 is a simple library for people using the Sony PS3 Cell SDK, primarily made for making applications universally compatible with payloads, to help extend and improve existing functions for homebrew, and to add new functions.

Documentation for SynaPS3 is on github. Some of the most notable features of SynaPS3 included syscall36 compatibility on ALL PL3 payloads, and syscall35 compatibility on Hermes v3 and Hermes v4 payloads. To integrate these compatibility fixes it's as simple as opening the source of an existing program, removing the syscall35/syscall36 functions, and including SynaPS3!

SynaPS3 also has functions to help save you time while coding, such as ReadFirmwareVersion, IsBlurayGame, Firmware342Fix, and more.

SynaPS3 is nowhere near where we want it to be yet. This is only the beginning. SynaPS3 aims to become a full library, with PS3 dialogs and full PNG output.

A decent chunk of our code was...

BBC iPlayer 3 is Coming to Sony's PlayStation 3 Console This Year

200°
221w ago - The BBC iPlayer has been available on Sony's PlayStation 3 console for quite some time, however, according to the BBC's Simon Cross the BBC iPlayer 3 will be coming to the PS3 entertainment system this year.

According to [Register or Login to view links], a new version of the catch-up TV service known as the iPlayer 3 will arrive as soon as technical issues with the sign-in process are resolved.

To quote: "Cross also noted that new functionality would be appearing on the application, including a For You section which would consist of shows you may be interested in.

There will also be more social network functionality, although it was unclear whether the Facebook and Twitter integration would make the move to the PS3.

The biggest problem the BBC is trying to overcome is signing into the app and how the BBC is going to implement this.

"We don't know whether to integrate it with the PSN signing in process or do something new," Cross explained."
