117w ago - Today PlayStation 3 hacker KaKaRoToKS has posted a status update on the PS3 4.0 Homebrew Enabler (HEN), which comes just six weeks since the previous confirmation that it indeed works on Sony's latest Firmware version.

To quote: Here’s a “quick” status update on the 4.00 HEN (Homebrew ENabler) for PS3.

Following my clarifications from almost 2 months ago here, there has been a lot of progress. We have not been slacking off, we’re a group of about 10 developers working together for the last 2 months, for sometimes 15 hours everyday in order to bring back homebrew support to the latest version of the PS3.

There are three major parts to the HEN, first, getting the packages to install on the PS3, that part is done, completed, tested, debugged, etc.. the second part is to get the apps to run, that one still has major issues... the last part is something I will not discuss for now (it’s a surprise) but it’s about 60% to 70% done (and it has nothing to do with peek&poke and has nothing to do with backup managers or anything...

184w ago - Today Head of Production Ben Creasey has detailed this weeks VidZone PS3 update, which includes a Chase & Status exclusive and more, as follows:

Chase & Status have been ON... FIRE... recently and let's just say the fire brigade haven't got a chance against this inferno.

Especially now with a massive freshly thrown Molotov cocktail fuelling the fire in the shape of their new single "Hypest Hype" featuring Tempa T, and guess who has got exclusive rights to fan the fire with the first play of their new video on the 7th of October? VidZone of course!

So watch it and fall in love, then you can download the track FOR FREE from www.chaseandstatus.co.uk on the 8th of November. Which is about as nice as you can be... Isn't it? The answer is yes.

Even Zane Lowe thinks so, so much so he has been his "HOTTEST RECORD IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW".

227w ago - Today Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared both a God of War III PS3 status update and a video, as follows:

On Tuesday, SCEA and a number of our publishing partners (2K, Capcom, EA, SEGA, and Square-Enix) filled a SoHo art gallery with many of the best games you'll be playing in early 2010.

Before things kicked off, Sony Santa Monica Studios' Director of Development John Hight showed me a brand new scene from God of War III.

We'll be sharing a detailed look at that scene next month, but I thought you might want an update from the team on how the game is coming along.

We'll be sharing more from our Q1 event soon, so keep an eye out!
