From his blog, to quote: Hi guys, here’s a preview of my PS3 Homebrew game “Pointman the Akkadian wars”
It is still in development and this video is more of a teaser, since every time I give myself an ETA I keep adding new stuff and keep delaying the release.
The video is of the main menu and story intro, no gameplay (WIP) hope you like it. caw!
Finally, also from condorstrike comes a PS3LoadX PKG test file, who states the following:
I've been doing some testing myself with mixed results, good to hear about Solar. I have this one pkg to test, a new version of ps3loadx, can you or anyone else test this? If this one works it would allow launching of Selfs.

27w ago - Following up on RenPKG and RAP2RIF, PlayStation 3 homebrew developer Eslab has now made available RIF2RAP which no longer requires users to downgrade their PS3 console to 3.55 to export the RAP files.
With this application, it is now possible to convert RIF files on the PlayStation 3 console to RAP files.
From mikufans: Hello, recently my friend released a tool: rif2rap. It does help those who want to share the rap. And there is no need to downgrade the PS3 concole to 3.55 to export the rap. Just run this rif2rap.exe, and get the rap.
Tested OK by some of my friends. The Tutorial is so easy that no need to explain here.

On the Wii U specs, Marcan Tweeted the following:...

It went really well, and the development was really fast, and it was all thanks to the awesome API (docs.enlightenment.org) and capabilities of the EFL libraries. However, I became busy and was unable to continue... also, it was a bit slow and without proper hardware acceleration, it wouldn’t be as good as I hoped for, so I put the project on the...
