128w ago - Today PS2 homebrew developer jimmikaelkael has released Free MC Boot (FMCB) Loader v1.8c and MC2USB Adapter Tools while confirming that the PS3 Memory Card Adaptor (CECHZM1) now allows for Free MC Boot installations via PC.
Additionally, he states that this new release is especially good for countries like Brasil, which imported their consoles from different Sony MagicGate regions.
You can now install FMCB from a PC to MC with these MC-Adapters!
You can sign MC-KELFs to your MCs directly from PC!
You can make multi-region-installs!
The FMCB1.8c-Loader finally includes the V0-Kernel-Fix for those old SCPH-1x000-Consoles (this gives users of those old models the ability to run a few homebrew-apps, which were previously incompatible to those versions)!
129w ago - EA Mobile Senior Producer Christophe Gomez has announced that Tetris is getting a free PS3 3D update on PlayStation Network today!
To quote: Greetings, fellow TETRIS enthusiasts! I'm here to deliver some very cool news about our TETRIS game on PlayStation Network.
Ever dreamed of being immersed in a multi-dimensional rain of falling Tetriminos? I know I have. Well, thanks to the wonders of 3D Television (and the EA Production Team); we can all finally live the fantasy.
We just launched one of our most impressive free TETRIS updates ever. TETRIS on PSN will finally be playable in 3D. Yes, you read that right - 3D!
To experience this new option, all you have to do is launch TETRIS on your PS3 and accept the update. That's it! It's available in North America and Europe and is only 75MB.
In addition to TETRIS on PSN boasting 5.1 Dolby Sound, 1080p HD graphics and six different play modes - you will now be able to play TETRIS on your snazzy 3D monitor.
We're really excited about this update and can't wait to compete in PS3-exclusive multiplayer modes, with Tetriminos in our faces!
131w ago - Zipper Interactive Senior Community Manager Jeremy Dunham has welcomed fans back to SOCOM 4 on the PS3 today and announced they are issuing free maps and weapons to PlayStation Plus users.
To quote: We're very happy today to announce that SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs is now offering free maps and weapons to all PS Plus users!
You might remember that we gave away the classic SOCOM map "Abandoned" and a couple of exclusive shotguns as an incentive to pre-order the game through GameStop. All PlayStation Plus users can now download "Abandoned" and the shotguns free for the next month!
For those of you without Plus yet, don't worry-your time will come shortly. Recall the blog announcement a couple weeks back announcing that, as a token of appreciation, the PlayStation Network will be giving all users 30 days free PlayStation Plus membership, coming soon. After a month of PlayStation Plus availability, "Abandoned" and the shotguns will continue to be available for SOCOM Pro members.
But that's not all. When we announced SOCOM Pro shortly before SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs hit stores, we promised that we'd be delivering the oft-requested M16 and AK-47 shortly after release. We're happy today to not only say that they're almost here, but that they're being...
133w ago - This weekend PlayStation 3 hacker Robo Hobo has released a PS3 port of the FUSE Free Unix Sinclair Spectrum Emulator dubbed FUSE 126.96.36.199 PS3 Alpha 1 for both JailBreak and PS3 Custom Firmware users.
To quote: Here is a version for testing, I'm calling it 'Alpha 1'. There's a lot of features in the emulator, and I'm not all that familiar with the spectrum to even begin testing them all. If you find any issues, or have any ideas for improvement, please post them.
If you are using a USB keyboard post any info about non-working keys (likely on non-US keyboards) and I'll add them to the sdcell key map for future releases.
Please read the Readme.PS3 file in the zip for usage info and known issues.
From the Readme File: 188.8.131.52: PS3 Alpha 1 Release Notes:
This is a test release, not all features have been thoroughly tested. Please report any issues and feedback. Issues should NOT be reported to the FUSE project, this port is unofficial and the fuse team will not be able to provide support.
