PS4 Mod with 2 TB External SSHD Drive, Better / Cooler Performance

550°
31w ago - Following up on How to Swap In / Upgrade a PS4 HDD, today Paul Statham (aka Placebo) shared how to modify the PS4 to run with a 2 TB External SSHD drive, which he claims boosts better and cooler performance.

To quote: "Paul Statham, who also happens to be Community and PR Manager at ARMA III Developer Bohemia Interactive, is one of those gamers, and decided that the tiny 500 GB 2.5″ HDD provided with the PS4 wasn’t enough for his taste, so he set out to replace it with a massive 3.5″ 2 TB Solid State Hybrid drive.

You’re probably asking yourself: “How the hell did he fit that in the console? It’s too big.” And in fact he didn’t. He purchased a few spare parts and actually mounted the drive externally, thanks to creativity and a bit of technical knowledge.

Modifying the console like that has a few advantages: first of all 3.5″ drives have a cheaper cost per gigabyte than 2.5″ ones, and the SSHD offered also provides better performance.

The issue is that the internal...

Ibb & Obb on PSN Updated, Enhanced Features and Performance

100°
48w ago - Sparpweed Creative Director Richard Boeser announced today alongside a video that Ibb and Obb on PSN has been updated complete with enhanced features and performance.

To quote: It's been about a month since we launched Ibb & Obb, our two-player, cooperative puzzle platformer.

Since the launch, we've been working on a patch to fix some bugs that players found, but also to add some features based on the feedback we got.

The most requested feature was to have indicators showing where players are when they fly off screen. Those are now in, along with d-pad support for those of you who prefer that to the analog stick. Also, we managed to improve general performance quite a bit - now everything runs at 60 FPS in full HD, with anti aliasing on.

For us, some of the most interesting things of the last month are the Let's Play videos that pop up. Often made by players that dive into the game without having played it before or knowing much about it. From a game designer point of view these videos are extremely useful.

We've seen a lot of people play during development, but it's different when players know the game is still unfinished or when they can ask you questions directly. The Let's Play videos feel more real. They show the published product and are often recorded...

Is Windows 7 Gaming Performance Over Vista Worth Trying?

500°
260w ago - How is Windows 7 PC gaming better than Windows Vista gaming?

The Windows 7 64 bit edition seems to handle the 64 bit technology better than both Windows XP x64 and Windows Vista x64.

It seems to do this so well that even the 32 bit programs have extra room to breathe because the system resources and other background programs are able to run in an efficient 64 bit environment.

This is ironic, because many people were under the impression that Windows 7 gaming would not be as good because Windows 7 64 bit would need to use a 32 bit emulator to run 32 bit programs.

That was the case with Windows Vista gaming when you were running Windows Vista x64, but Windows 7 x64 seems to have overcome this problem.

One of other things that people may be worry about when it comes to Windows 7 gaming is compatibility. They want to be assured that they will actually be able to play the game. The good thing about this is that many of the games were designed with Windows 7 gaming compatibility in mind.

Windows 7 is built from Windows Vista so you should not have to worry about Windows 7 gaming compatibility. Windows Vista is compatible with all of the latest games beyond Windows XP.

Finally, Windows 7 was built to be compatible with older software and hardware...
