187w ago - Bend Studios Creative Director John Garvin has unveiled today that on June 1, 2010 Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow will be heading to Sony's PS2 console.
To quote: I'm excited to announce that Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow will be available for purchase on the PlayStation 2 on June 1!
Coming just a couple of years after our first PSP game, award winning Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror, our goal was to create another great chapter in the saga of Gabe Logan, blowing out both the game play and production values to create a state-of-the-art Syphon Filter experience.
We got Azam Ali to write an amazing soundtrack, Syphon's first theme song with lyrics and vocals. Azam's haunting score is a large part of why this game is one of my personal favorites.
190w ago - I did this cheap PS2 to PS3 Guitar Hero 3 adapter a few months back, but only about a month after I bought my PS3.
So, I bought my ps3, with GH3+guitar. I made a custom PS2 guitar a while back so I thought it would be nice to use with the PS3. A cheapoo PS2-usb adapter worked with the controllers, but not with the guitar.
To not start from scratch, I found a PS2-USB adaper at http://vusb.wikidot.com/projects2usb but needed some "finetune" to work as a guitar.
First: mine only support one controller/adapter
Second: the HID descriptor had to be modified (copied what was possible - due to limitations of slow USB device class)
I've dumped the descriptor of my guitar so you can experiment with it, if you want. Download: USB HID_gh3_n2.rar
And at last: added a code to switch the controller to analog mode, so the whammy should work too. (you can connect before or after the adapter is powered, no special combo needed)
Source, binary and etc (avs include absolute path!) Download: Source.rar
Results: the adapter works great, fast, virtually no lag BUT i was unable to identify why the star-power...
196w ago - Sony's PlayStation 2 console turns ten years old today (yesterday in some parts of the world) and was first shown at a Japanese event in 1999.
Launch titles were limited, with Ridge Racer 5 and Street Fighter EX3 standing out. The machine went on to launch later that year in both the US and EU, hitting on October 26 and November 24 respectively.
To quote: "Ten years ago today on March 5th, 2000, Sony released the first version of the PlayStation 2 in Japan, which means the game-console is essentially turning 10 years old today.
The PS2 was later released in North America on October 26, 2000. With more than 140 million units sold as of September 2009, the PlayStation 2 has become the best-selling video game-console of all time and sales are surprsingly still going strong.
Believe it or not, several new games are scheduled to be released for the platform this year.
It's definitely a great milestone for such a revolutionary and innovative game-console that really changed the way we played video games. Happy 10th birthday to the PlayStation 2!"
