To quote: Some PC gamers (myself included) like to go on about the huge image quality advantages of playing on PCs. Now, your PC can actually improve the visual quality of console-exclusive games! (outside of emulation)
I've previously posted about the small program PtBi that I use to display 360 and PS3 games. Today I added the ability to use NVidia's FXAA - thanks to them for releasing the code to the public domain and making it easy to integrate.
For those that are unaware, FXAA is a post-processing method that tries to reduce the amount of aliasing artifacts (think pixel staircase) in an image. It's similar to MLAA in that aspect. Like all post-processing methods that act purely on image data, it has some drawbacks:
- It can't handle subpixel aliasing well. (Unlike most similar methods, it at least tries to reduce it though)
- Sometimes aliasing may be detected incorrectly,...

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 - Magic Pixel Games President Mark Tsai has posted up a video today spotlighting Carnival Island on PS3 with PlayStation Move from E3 2011.
To quote: At E3, we were pleased to announce the game we've been building for PlayStation Move over the last several months with SCEA Santa Monica Studio: Carnival Island!
Carnival games are perfect for translation to motion control gaming - the gameplay is very physical, requiring rolling, throwing, flipping and tossing - actions which translate extremely well for the accuracy of the Move controller.
However, we've taken away the frustration, making the game feel very natural and accessible - something that anyone can pick-up and play. Carnival Island has something for everyone, and is a game that you can enjoy in your living room with up to four friends or family members. It allows side-by-side multiplayer, so you can elbow your family or friends during heated competitive play.
In single-player mode, the game takes the player through a journey of restoring magic to a forgotten carnival. As the player accomplishes challenges and goals, the world comes alive with pets, color and toys. All of the prizes you collect and unlock make a real difference; they add to the atmosphere...
