212w ago - It's been quite some time since we had an update on PS3 MegaBox (or similar frontends) primarily because Sony removed the OtherOS and Linux options from the PS3 Slim.
However, yesterday DemonHades (linked above) experimented with installing the latest PS3 MegaBox Linux Media Center via USB pendrive.
That being said, those who wish to revisit PS3 MegaBox can grab the recently released version 2.1 Final (1.3GB in size) from Spanish site Megalandia along with some compatibility and multilanguage fixes.
For those curious, PS3 MegaBox v2.1 has the following features, roughly translated:
• It turns your PlayStation 3 into a complete system multimedia.
• It takes advantage of to the maximum the possibilities your video console.
• It transforms the television into your main maintenance center. It enjoys like in your PC, but from the comfort of your hall.
• It accedes to Internet, electronic mail, films and videos in network, series, music... unloading thousands of gratuitous games.
245w ago - The producer of Final Fantasy XIII recently stated that the game will utilize almost 100 percent of the power of the PS3. This statement has gotten a few sites questioning the quality of the Xbox 360 version. Most likely it won't be the quality that suffers but the convenience factor.
According to Kotaku, Yoshinori Kitase stated in a recent interview for Dengeki Playstation 3, that Final Fantasy XIII will utilize almost 100 percent of the power of the PS3. He also claimed that the demo will utilize 50 percent of the PS3's power. The Final Fantasy XIII demo will be hitting Japan in April. The demo will be out in the States sometime in June.
Some have questioned if the Xbox 360 version will suffer in quality. I have to say it sounds a bit like hype. How can the demo use 50 percent of the PS3's power while the full version uses 100 percent? Does that even make sense from a technical standpoint? It sounds like there may be some mistranslation there regarding the power of the PS3 versus disc space utilization.
I am betting that the main difference will be mostly related to disc swapping. The biggest...
279w ago - During E3, Microsoft announced that Final Fantasy XIII was coming to the Xbox 360 – but only for North America and Europe. However, the Xbox 360 was not announced for Japan. Add another country to the list!
At a recent Microsoft game exhibition in Taipei, Microsoft Taiwan's Entertainment and Devices Division head Grace Chou announced that Final Fantasy XIII for the Xbox 360 would go on sale in Taiwan, but haven't yet decided which localized version will be launched for the Asian territories.
We imagine that means it should be possible for Japanese Xbox 360 owners to import the Asia version and play it on their consoles – that is, unless the Asia FFXIII is region coded so that's impossible. This version could have the original Japanese language track with Chinese/Korean/English subtitles or it might be the English language version with Chinese/Korean subtitles. According to Chou, the language hasn't yet been decided.
