57w ago - Following up on Sony's PS Vita Firmware Update v1.67, this weekend PlayStation Vita hacker wololo has announced news of a new Hello World on PS Vita 1.67 alongside details of a VHBL update with a demonstration video below.
To quote: Hope you didn’t wait too long since our last VHBL release a bit more than 2 weeks ago… This is a new PSP user mode exploit by thecobra (also discovered a while ago by WosRet), which I confirmed runs on a PS Vita with Firmware 1.67. Unlike Motorstorm and Everybody’s Tennis, this game is available in the US store as well as some other countries (details to come). Check the video and details below.
Thecobra already ported VHBL to this exploit, and we already have something running, that just needs a few tweaks here and there before being released. So far I didn’t see anything that would prevent HBL from running on Vita 1.67, but that will need to be fully confirmed in the days to come.
The name of the exploited game is obviously kept a secret until the public announcement, and if you don’t want to miss the release, remember that history repeats itself. Sony will most likely remove the game within hours following...

To quote: The PS3 uDraw tablet/accessory comes with a USB dongle which shows up as a standard HID device when plugged into a PC, so I threw together some documentation and a "driver"/application to allow using it on a Windows PC as a standard mouse.
Documentation (Where ambiguous, assume little endian.)
There are 0x08 bytes that can be sent on the device's OUT interrupt pipe -- I don't know what these are. There are 0x1B bytes constantly received on the device's IN interrupt pipe, described below:
0x00 Button status information:
0 Set means square is being held down.
1 Set means cross is being held down.
2 Set means cricle is being held down.
3 Set means triangle is being held down.
4 No idea, but it set itself while playing around. More playing around reset it.
5 Unknown / nothing.

66w ago - BioWare Community and Social Media Manager Jessica Merizan has officially announced that the Mass Effect 3 demo is coming today to PSN!
To quote: Mass Effect 3's new demo is launching later today on the PlayStation Network.
Voted "Most Anticipated Game of 2012" at the Spike Video Game Awards, Mass Effect 3 plunges you into the boots of Commander Shepard, a decorated marine and war hero, as players lead the charge in an all-out galactic war against a nearly unstoppable foe.
Today marks the arrival of our single-player demo for the PS3, giving you a taste of what to expect when Commander Shepard takes Earth back on March 6th. When you download and play the demo, you'll see that how you fight the war is entirely up to you.
Choose your appearance and pick from a variety of specialized combat classes, each with unique and devastating abilities. As you progress in this war, you'll choose which abilities to specialize in, which weapons to bring into battle, and which characters will join you in combat.
There's more to this demo, though - starting on February 17th, PS3 owners will be able to play multiplayer for the first time in the Mass Effect universe! As a special bonus, Battlefield 3 owners who have redeemed an online pass on the PlayStation Network will get early...
