3d ago - Following up on their previous revision, Italian PlayStation 3 developer Francesco Lanzilotta at BiteYourConsole has updated the PSP Minis on PS3 application dubbed PSPMinis / PS3Minis / Bite to version 1.5.1 with the changes outlined below.
To quote, roughly translated: Bite H&E 1.5.1 Released
After a week, we at BiteYourConsole.net we release a new version of Bite that today comes to version 1.5.1. Bite h&e, this is the name of the new version which is for homebrew, emulation & why we decided to integrate three of the most popular emulators of the scene.
The three emulators are the famous PPSSPP of the PSP, which boasts numerous titles, the ePSXe regarding the PSOne and PlayStation 2 emulator, PCSX2.
Attention: the emulator ePSXe and PCSX2 BiOS need to operate, the bios for these emulators is owned by sony, unfortunately we cannot provide support on copyrighted material.
We wanted to totally change the menus, which as you can see from the pictures they approach remarkably in similarity to the XMB (XrossMediaBar), the graphical user interface developed...
To quote, roughly translated: Uploaded version 1.7, which theoretically supports all PS3 firmwares (If you see a problem, and I correct red phone )

3d ago - Activision Community Manager Dan Amrich announced that Black Ops II Uprising is out today alongside 4 new Mob of the Dead maps with details and a video trailer below.
To quote: How often in life do you get a second chance? If you're an online Call of Duty player, well, that's pretty simple - you get one every time you press Square to respawn.
But the concepts of return, reinvigoration, and redemption all play into Uprising, the second map pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops II, which is available today on PlayStation Network.
To start, Uprising features four new maps for Black Ops II multiplayer matches:
Vertigo, the top of a Tacitus mega-structure that's so tall, it breaks the cloud layer; Magma, a small Japanese village that has been engulfed by the lava of a nearby erupting volcano; Encore, the performance stage and surrounding grounds following a London music festival; and Studio, a re-imagining of the Call of Duty: Black Ops Firing Range, offering chaotic combat over several movie sets on a Hollywood backlot.
Studio is a particular point of pride here, as it's a re-imagining of Firing Range, which fans of the original Black Ops still eagerly choose in multiplayer lobbies. Its compact design and varied lines of sight - sniper perches, blind corners, tight...
3d ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman went hands on today with The Last of Us on the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
Below are the details, to quote: I'm low on ammo, so I clumsily swing my two-by-four at the incoming Clicker - dumb move. The creature sinks its fetid teeth into my jugular, chirping with malevolent glee as it rips out a gobbet of flesh. Arterial blood spurts across my face, now contorted in shock and agony.
I'm dead. This time, I try a different approach. I combine one of my remaining rags and a precious bottle of alcohol to create a Molotov cocktail, then hurl it towards the abomination. Flames envelop the lumbering shape as it wails and collapses, dead at last. I'm alive - for a little while longer.
The Last of Us isn't afraid to kill you, over and over if need be. And that's a big part of its considerable charm. As you struggle to survive the game's inhospitable world, limping from one nail-biting combat scenario to the next, you'll feel strangely alive and alert.
In an era of game development that - at least to this old-timer - tends to babysit players with tutorials and handholding to dial down any chance of frustration, this game's unapologetically tough-as-nails approach feels both refreshing and quietly revolutionary. Remember when games used...
