137w ago - Today Nintendo has confirmed (PDF) that the Wii's successor will be shown and playable at E3 this year, and that the new home console will be launching sometime in 2012.
According to several reports, the next-gen 'Project Cafe' Wii will utilize a new controller providing users with a unique view to streamed content from their console and TV.
To quote from MCVUK (linked above): "A fierce fortnight of rumours concerning the Wii 2 has been rounded off with official confirmation of a new Nintendo home console.
The platform holder confirmed as much in a note attached to its most recent financial report. It confirms that a “successor” to the popular motion sensing machine will launch at some point in 2012. It will be shown at this year's E3 in June."
Finally, for those wondering E3 runs this year from June 7 to June 9, 2011.
157w ago - Here's a small app called n4ru Flash Loader, a successor to JaicraB's Loader, I made in a few minutes. It's completely untested as I have no access to a PS3 until Monday and thus may not work at all, so feedback would be appreciated.
It uses the SynaPS3 library, even though it only uses 1 function from the library. No harm in self-advertisement for my (baby-stage) library?
Jaicrab's Loader was made when we still had to use peek/poke to remount directories. We now have syscall8 (hermes) and syscall35 (PL3) for remounting directories. This makes things much easier.
This loader is universal and works with both Hermes and PL3. Create a folder called "cfw" on the root of your device and place the "dev_flash" folder inside it. Then create another folder called "cfw" INSIDE your "dev_flash" folder.
276w ago - GamePark has lifted the veil on its successor to the open-source GP2X handheld. Dubbed as "The Wiz," core specifications include a 533MHz ARM9 processor, 64MB RAM, a 2.8 inch OLED screen with touch panel support, and 1GB of built-in NAND flash memory.
Features on the software end include support for Macromedia Flash 7, as well as a pre-loaded MP3 player, image viewer, and EBOOK reader.
All in all, GamePark is promising at least 5 hours of battery life on a 2000mAh lithium battery. The unit itself is fairly small, weighing in at 136g with the battery inserted.
Pricing details have yet to be announced. As with previous GP2X iterations, the hardware will ship alongside the release of a free open-source SDK, allowing homebrew developers to create their own applications and games.
