PSN changing to SNEA on April 1st, 2011 – New ToS and User Agreement!

Recently everyone that still is ONLINE with PSN have now received an avance email from Sony that says starting April 1st, 2011 Nope, it not a Early Joke, Sony loves this day for some reason! That all PSN Accounts are going to be transfered over to a new company called SNEA and if you do not accept the new Terms Of Service , your existing PSN account will be CLOSED and any leftover PSN funds will be returned! Another thing see reading thru the new Privacy Policy is they are also during the switch-over pushing you for Credit Card info, even if you don’t wish to use it incase of future purchases, it looks to me like a push towards a more PAID system in the near future similar to XBOX Live has been, and a way insure that all existing modded systems are OFFLINE as most likely their will be alot of background network changes to support the new SNEA setup! Just received an interesting email from Playstation, which turns out to be true afterall!

PS3 IDA Plugins Released by KaKaRoTo!

Developer KaKaRoTo has released a very much improved plugin for using IDA Pro in working with the internal PS3 files like .self/.sprx modules! Quote: Originally Posted by KaKaRoTo It’s been a while since my last post !

I’ve been reversing some PPC code in IDA and unfortunately, it doesn’t handle the PS3 files very well, so I wrote a lot of scripts in order to make it parse the files properly! There was one thing missing though that I couldn’t do with an .idc script : handling of jump tables .
