So at least it's confirmed, eh? Still meh though!
 

Hands-On: Demon's Souls for PlayStation 3

50°
311w ago - After unveiling the first details nearly two weeks ago of FROM Software's Demon's Souls, PS3FanBoy has now made available a hands-on review from this year's Tokyo Game Show as follows:

Immediately the demo begins and I'm confronted by a character customization screen, allowing me to change various aspects of my appearance. I didn't tinker, mostly because I wasn't sure what did what thanks to the language barrier.

Customizing my appearance would've been a waste of time anyway, as the camera sits behind the character for the majority of the time and his face is hidden by a large medieval helmet.

The gameplay starts in a courtyard in front of a large castle. A small fountain lies ahead, slowing down the game with its unnecessary, though meager, particle effects.

Despite some fairly decent graphics, the game has an overwhelming sense of being old school. In the top left lies my health, mana and stamina bar, something that is beginning to feel dated in third-person action games post-Uncharted and Gears of War.

Graphically, the game looks good. Textures and models are quality, if a bit generic. However, currently the game is best viewed in screenshots as the frame rate...
 

PlayStation Portable PSARDumper for 5.00 Decryption Released!

100°
311w ago - With the release of PlayStation Portable Firmware 5.00 yesterday, PSP hacker Dark_AleX has made available PSARDumper for 5.00 Decryption.

Download: PSP PSARDumper for 5.00 / PSP PSARDumper for 5.00 [Mirror]

From the ReadMe file: This is psardumper for 5.00. The table format has changed due to the inclusion of PSP3000.

Note: psp3000 modules cannot be decrypted yet, not even their names. The keys for the filenams table are in mesg_led03.prx of psp3000 which we cannot access yet. Additionally the keys for the modules themselves are in the ipl o psp3000 which cannot yet be accessed.

Due to that, you will see various warnings about "could not find path of XXXXX", just ignore that.

Other change in psardumper is no more buffer limitation for the psar, as it is now loaded dinamically from ms, and not the whole thing at beginning.
 

CNET: PlayStation 3 Firmware 2.50 Flash 9 Update Disappoints

250°
311w ago - CNET has reported disappointment with the PlayStation 3's Flash 9 support stating that it is not working correctly with some sites.

To quote: Flash 9 should allow the PS3's Web browser to access more sophisticated Web video sites, including Hulu, ABC.com, and our own CNET TV (YouTube worked well enough with the browser's earlier version of Flash).

And, indeed, you can now watch those sites, but it's short of a perfect experience.

We couldn't get Hulu or CNET TV to go full-screen, and had trouble accessing the high-resolution versions of both (Hulu's 480p version was inaccessible, and the CNET TV "HD" stream produced a very low framerate).

What do you think of the latest PS3 firmware update: useful additions, or just an incremental upgrade? Is Hulu access a big deal, or do you use something like PlayOn instead?
