The following guide covers the very basics of how to install and run a proxy server on your local computer to use with your PS4. This allows you to study how the PS4 communicates with Sony’s servers, for various reasons.
A proxy lets you block some of the traffic (which has been useful in the past to let users access Netflix on their PS3 even when they didn’t have PSN access), or replace some of the traffic with connections to your own server (useful for being able to connect to the PSN on a lower firmware), or simply because you’d like to know what type of information your console sends to Sony’s servers.
Charles proxy is probably the most popular proxy around here, but it is commercial software. Thankfully, scene dev SKFU has been creating and updating his own proxy server for windows, and this is the tool I will be showing today.
6w ago - Below are details on Sony's PS4 protection plan, some new PlayStation 4 day one update details and more from Shuhei Yoshida on the PS4 overheating, PS3 support and Play Memories.
To quote: "Sony will once again be offering a Protection Plan for their latest console.
For $49.99, plan buyers will receive two years of coverage for their PS4, which includes claim processing available 7 days a week, no out-of-pocket expenses for qualified claims, a pre-paid shipping box and PlayStation certified technicians and genuine PlayStation parts. For ten bucks more, the plan will cover accidental damage.
This comes in additional to a 1-year limited warranty out of the box."
From GamingBolt comes some new day one PS4 update details, as follows:
Kenny Linder, who was previously a part of Sony UK’s recently shuttered BigBig Studios and who is now working on a launch title for both next gen consoles, has revealed some new details on the upcoming Day One...
To quote: Recently I have read Wololo's article "Best PSP/Vita Homebrew for November 2013" and noticed that my quite old "SKFU's VITA Pr0xy" is still being used by many people.
Sadly I kinda' missed to release an updated version of my proxy software anytime. Thanks to the great feedback for my old proxy, here comes the very new one: "SKFU's Pr0xy".
I did remove the "VITA" from it's name since it changed a lot after the release of my old proxy server software, I don't want people to think it is a limited to PSV piece of software. It definitely is not!
But what it is and what it got:
The most user-friendly Windows Pr0xy
Filter plugin support (users can create and share plugins)

Following the fantastic response to the PS3 release of Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F, SEGA is proud to announce that we have now begun development to bring Project Diva f to PS Vita in the West!
Yes, you read that right. You're not dreaming. Watch the Vita announcement trailer above, take a deep breath, and then let loose that smile.
Now, I want you all to think back a few months to when we released Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F on PS3... do you remember what the user comments here on Playstation.Blog looked like?
"We want the Vita version!" you told us. "Please, I'd sell my soul for a Vita version!*" someone said.
Today, we're overjoyed to not only share the good news of a PS Vita release, but to also finally add a shiny new soul to our collection. (We'll put it in our lobby, right next to the big Miku standee.)
Hatsune Miku: Project Diva f will be releasing in early 2014 on PS Vita, and we'll have more news...
