Video: PS Vita PSP HEN Demo, Kernel Access Through Exploit

1000°
131w ago - Following up on the PSP SaveGame Exploit on PS Vita from a few days ago, today PlayStation Vita hacker wololo reports that [Register or Login to view links] has obtained PSP Kernel access on PS Vita through another exploit with a PS Vita PSP HEN demo video and details below!

To quote: Famous PSP dev Davee just posted a YouTube video showing him running PSP homebrews on a Vita. I initially thought “well, not a big surprise, he’s running his own port of VHBL to some random exploited game”, but it turns out this is much more interesting than that, as he managed to get a PSP Kernel exploit running on the PSP Emulator.

Davee had hinted a few days ago on twitter that he had PSP User mode access, but it’s a surprise to see Kernel mode today. What this means to the end user is full homebrew compatibility (unlike VHBL which is hit and miss), and potentially down the road, PSP iso loaders (the video actually shows a psp iso running). Check his video below:





The video shows a minimalist interface called “PRX Loader” which seems to be used to run the homebrews. No word...
 

Starhawk Brings Back Splitscreen Head-to-Head, Co-op Multiplayer

200°
131w ago - Sony Senior Producer Harvard Bonin has announced today that Starhawk is bringing back splitscreen head-to-head and co-op multiplayer action on the PlayStation 3 entertainment system!

To quote: As most Warhawk players know, there's nothing quite like "couch gaming!" That is to say, playing video games on the same TV with a friend.

Lots of games have it: Games like Dance Today, Dance Forever, Dance 2 Dance, Dance Dancy Dance, or even Dance Your Self Esteem Away. Dancing is fine and all, but there's nothing that can quite replace the thrill of fragging the buddy sitting next to you - especially if he's being a lame hillbilly (deep, deep love of shotguns).

In Warhawk, you could play with some friends in the same room and have a proper night of gaming: Face to face and frag to frag while sharing nachos, smack talk, and profanity. Good times!

So we're happy to let you know that Starhawk has the exact same feature! OK...not the EXACT same feature. We've spent some time making it better, we think.

Two-Player Split Screen:

Yes, we've got splitscreen play. You can play with another friend on the same PS3 on the same TV. We are very aware that some of you wanted four-player splitscreen like Warhawk.

We thought about it a...
 

Sony European PSN Game Store Updates for March 21, 2012

100°
131w ago - Today Sony's Jawad Ashraf of the PlayStation Store Team has posted up this weeks European PSN Game Store updates outlined below, as follows:

Welcome to this week's PlayStation Store update.

For PlayStation 3 This week will see Assassin's Creed Revelations' release on the store (on Friday). Until Monday the 26th, you'll be able to get it at a discounted rate, so grab it before it sneaks back to full price.

If you haven't had your chance to start at the beginning of the series (like me!) then the Assassin's Creed Double Edition bundle will serve you well. The bundle will give you the first two games, letting you experience the series where it all began.

Also, after a bit of a wait we now have some Resident Evil avatars that y'all can snap up. There is a selection of characters from both Resident Evil 4 and Code Veronica to choose from.

So, that's it for today. Short and sweet!

Video: Behind the Scenes of Kara: Quantic Dream's PS3 Tech Demo

200°
131w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared a behind the scenes video today spotlighting the making of Kara: behind the scenes of Quantic Dream's PS3 tech demo below.

To quote: The creators of Heavy Rain didn't come empty handed to this year's Game Developers Conference. The celebrated studio debuted a powerful new "[Register or Login to view links]" called Kara to show off their new animation and performance-capture technology.

If you've seen Kara, then you know that the results speak for themselves.

Rendered in real time on PS3 hardware, Kara chronicled the activation of a self-aware synthetic organism, but this making-of feature is impressive in its own right as it shows how [Register or Login to view links] assembled several different performances to create a seamless, believable virtual character. The future is now, you guys.





Once you've watched the video feature, let us know what you think in the comments! And as a reminder: Kara is absolutely, positively not Quantic Dream's next game.
