53w ago - Following up on the previous Nintendo Wii U hacking news, today console hacker and mod-chip developer Marcan42 of fail0verflow has shared a Wii U teaser video via 0xf0f on YouTube demonstrating The Homebrew Channel below.
To quote: "We finally have a YouTube channel and we thought we'd kick things off with a little teaser:
Keep in mind that this is purely a demonstration at this stage. Depending on how things progress and what direction development takes, we may or may not release something like this in this form. Please don't ask for release dates. We'd rather spend time investigating the new system than putting together a release that may or may not end up being the Right Way to do things in the future.
Please ignore the blue blinks. The monitor kind of sucks at syncing to component video sometimes. I would've used HDMI, but the Wii U cannot output analog audio simultaneously with HDMI (at least not for the Wii U menu part), and I cannot capture HDMI audio."
On the Wii U specs, Marcan Tweeted the following:...
86w ago - Today it appears Amazon.com jumped the gun with Sony's suspected God of War: Ascension reveal by publishing the game's product page a day early alongside the PS3 box art and a teaser trailer video below!
To quote from GameInformer.com (linked above): "God of War: Ascension for PlayStation 3 seems to be a prequel to the original trilogy, before Kratos became the Ghost of Sparta.
Not much else is known about the story, however. The listing notes, "Join Kratos as he seeks freedom, redemption, and the clarity to avenge his family in the most ambitious God of War adventure in the series so far."
The product page, which is active at the time of this publishing, also contains a short CG teaser trailer. The listing indicates the game is out sometime in 2013, but no official release date has been revealed."
Shipping: Currently, item can be shipped only within the U.S. and to APO/FPO addresses. For APO/FPO shipments, please check with the manufacturer regarding warranty and support issues.
168w ago - Update: The PS3Key v2 update is now available, which offers the recent PSGroove features including:
New features in v2:
1. Now supports peek/poke commands.
2. Backups on USB HDD can now run without an original game in the BluRay drive.
3. Works with Backup Manager 2.
Today French site Wiilogic.com (linked above) have shared some screens of the PS3Key Teaser PKG Installer loader, and Eurasia.nu have posted a PS3Key Tape Fix guide for those unfortunate enough to get a first-run production PS3Key PlayStation 3 modchip which contains a design flaw.
To quote, roughly translated: "Following our page on PS3Key, Team PS3Key contacted us and denies making a clone PSJailbreak.
She presents her own at the loader manager PS3Key which only works with the PS3 master key and provides the perfect situation at future upgrades of the chip PS3Key the reactions of Sony."
That said, it appears the PS3Key Teaser will only work with official PS3Key modchips and not other clones... at least for the time being.
174w ago - Developed by Treyarch, below is the newly released multiplayer teaser trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops which arrives this November for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo DS and Wii.
Personally, to me this just looks like Modern Warfare 2 with a remote control car, cameras, shooting knives, and a crossbow. Hey, but that's just my opinion.
In multiplayer modes, vehicles will return but with a different handling to that in World at War. Some PC specific features that were taken away from Infinity Ward's Modern Warfare 2 will return, such as lean and dedicated servers.
"Create-a-Class 2.0" will allow enhanced customization with appearance items as well as the usual perks. New killstreak rewards include a napalm strike, an RC explosive car and guided missiles.
Also, for the first time in the series, players will be able to record and save clips from online gameplay and there will be a unique four-player online co-op mode.
