119w ago - Today XBox 360 hackers GliGli and Tiros have released an XBox 360 Reset Glitch Hack for both the Fat and Slim models, which includes source code and a demo video below courtesy of Razkar2011 via YouTube.
To quote: The XBox 360 reset glitch hack - Introduction / some important facts: tmbinc said it himself, software based approaches of running unsigned code on the 360 mostly don't work, it was designed to be secure from a software point of view.
The processor starts running code from ROM (1bl) , which then starts loading a RSA signed and RC4 crypted piece of code from NAND (CB).
134w ago - Today Nyleveia.com (linked above) reports news of a security issue with the PlayStation Network 'Password Reset' feature, and as a result Sony has turned off the PSN sign-in to remedy the matter.
Sony has also confirmed that it was indeed not a hack, but a URL exploit that was subsequently fixed.
To quote from Community Team Moderator Yaster via the official PS EU Forum:
"Hey Guys. Please note that PSN sign in is currently unavailable for the following services:
• PlayStation forums
• PlayStation Blog
• Music Unlimited via the web client
• All PlayStation game title websites
Unfortunately this also means that those who are still trying to change their password password via Playstation.com or Qriocity.com will be unable to do so for the time being. This is due to essential maintenance and at present it is unclear how long this will take.
In the meantime you will still be able to sign into PSN...
229w ago - According to GamersDigest (linked above), the Coral Sea and the Air Superiority mode has finally been unlocked for the PS3 version of Battlefield 1943.
XBox 360 players had unlocked it earlier in the week as they reached the target figure of 43 million kills that was set by EA Dice, but PS3 players can now also enjoy the fourth map.
The demo timer has also been reset, meaning if you've downloaded the demo and expired the allotted 30 minutes of time, there will be another 30 waiting for you when you sign back in.
To quote: GamersDigest can confirm that Coral Sea and the 'Air Superiority' mode has finally been unlocked for the PS3 version of Battlefield 1943, with 360 players having unlocked it earlier on in the week.
To play the new map and mode, look at the last option on the menu, select it just like you would select 'Quick Match' and get ready for pure dogfighting.
