Video: Bioware Interview on Dragon Age II for PlayStation 3

50°
184w ago - Today Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared a video interview with Bioware on Dragon Age II for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

To quote: Despite the fact that Dragon Age: Origins, Bioware's first ever PS3 game, scored very well with reviewers - it just didn't click for me. I loved the universe, enjoyed the story.

I even got hooked on the associated [Register or Login to view links], which allows you to unlock special items in the PS3 version of Origins. I just never adapted to the battle system, and eventually abandoned the game.

After reading Tweeted adulation and hearing the raves of seemingly everyone else who loved Origins (Qore's Veronica Belmont chided me for quitting recently), and after hearting Bioware's Mass Effect 2 on PS3, I found myself all too ready to give the upcoming Dragon Age II another chance.





That chance came last week, as EA held a preview event featuring the upcoming Dragon Age II demo (which you'll be able to download from PSN and play on February 22nd).

To me, improvements were apparent and multiple. Visual upgrades (the game has a definitive style), technical polish (inconsistent frame rate begone!), and refined,...

185w ago - As a follow-up to Kmeaw's PS3 Linux update and his previous work, PlayStation 3 hacker Graf Chokolo has now brought PS3 Linux back to Firmware 3.41.

To quote from xorloser's blog: And here we go Linux is officially back on PS3 3.41. It’s even better now

It has all GameOS features, it has access to all HDD, VFLASH and FLASH regions. It can communicate with Dispatcher Manager, Update Manager, SYSCON Manager, it can run isolated SPUs, and of course RSX

I uploaded some screenshots of the Debian distribution i installed on my PS3 HDD. The Debian distribution is a just normal PPC64 Linux without any modification, all i changed was my dutifully and beloved Hypervisor

I modified the Hypervisor so far that it boots the Linux bootloader petitiboot from VFLASH and petitboot loads the Linux distribution installed on a HDD region.

And what is better than Linux to boot Linux ?

I practically implemented Dual Boot feature GameOS+OtherOS in the Hypervisor Linux is not the only OS which can be booted like...

PS3MFW - PS3 Modified Firmware Project is Announced

1050°
185w ago - Today PlayStation 3 hacker [Register or Login to view links] has announced news of PS3MFW, a PS3 Modified Firmware project!

From the official site (linked above): We have just been informed by an anonymous source that a new modified firmware-project is underway: Project PS3MFW.

There are several contributors, some of whom are well-known within the PS3 homebrew community but wish to remain anonymous. However, we were told that KaKaRoTo is playing an important role in the project.

The purpose of Project PS3MFW is the development of a customizable tool that creates modified firmware for Playstation 3 with many great features not available in current solutions. It provides a framework where each firmware modification task is an independent plugin with access to an API that facilitates the modification process. One important feature is that the project will be entirely open source, as opposed to every other MFW released to date.

The tool will be called “PS3MFW Builder”, and it will work in conjunction with several other utilities.

Project PS3MFW is an ongoing project; anyone qualified can contribute. A release of the PS3MFW Builder v0.1 is imminent.

Updates from KaKaRoToKS via Twitter: PS3MFW has ~65 customization...
