Assassin’s Creed Rogue is a next-gen rebel for Xbox 360, PS3:

For those who doesn’t have money or the urge to get a next-gen console yet. Assasin’s Creed Rogue is the answer.
Clearly another move from UBISOFT to keep delivering a game per year this can make *everyone happy*.
Though there’s not much info, only details about the plot. If is the a *pre-Kenway* is a big question. Thus UNITY for PS4 you play as Arno in the French Revolution.

If the idea is to “Unify” AC saga, they are doing it ok. Don’t you think?. More details below.

To quote:

We’re sure you can make up your own mind on why Assassin’s Creed Rogue is only coming to Xbox 360 and PS3. Nonetheless, we wanted to know what Ubisoft had to say on it. After all, Rogue‘s story is meant to bridge the gap between Assassin’s Creed 3 and Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, and the latter of those games came to PS4 and Xbox One. And both, of course, came to PC and Wii U.

“Well, the Kenway saga that began with Assassin’s Creed 3 and continued with Assassin’s Creed 4 was largely told on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360,” Associate Producer Karl Luhe told Joystiq at Gamescom. “So for us it made complete sense to finish that saga there. For next-gen players we built Assassin’s Creed Unity from the ground up to make best use of that new technology, and that’s where next-gen players are going to play Assassin’s Creed.”

While Assassin’s Creed 4 did introduce the PS4 and Xbox One to the series, the game was still built on the AnvilNext engine that was used in Assassin’s Creed 3. As Ubisoft’s Ashraf Ismail told IGN last year, the engine was built with next-gen systems in mind.

We asked Luhe if Rogue could really be seen as a key cog in the Kenway saga if it wasn’t coming to next-gen platforms like the previous game did.

“Well, Assassin’s Creed 3 was exclusively on that generation…” Luhe began.

“But you did have the previous game on the next-gen platforms,” we reiterated.

“It’s a valid point,” he replied. “We remain with that focus of next-gen is for Assassin’s Creed Unity and for those gamers that haven’t made the transition or really want to finish that saga, Assassin’s Creed Rogue is the offering for them.”

So, Xbox 360 and PS3 players can check out Rogue when it hits stateside on November 11. As a new trailer shows, players take on the role of a Templar rather than an assassin, and the Templar hero has his own ship with his own new weaponry to make waves with.

PRX Plugin: Remote System by therifboy

therifboy has released a new PRX plugin that allows devs to make syscalls and function calls. This plugin is mainly for developers/technical users.

I’ve been working on this for 3 weeks now.

It allows you a fast connection between ps3 and pc to make function calls and syscalls and some other stuff. It will come in handy for for people who are reversing vsh and quickly want to call a function.
The download contains a .sprx, a C++ dll. a C# dll and I’ve included a C# library with some examples to understand how it works.

[EDITORIAL] The Things They Told Us Would Happen to Video Games As Kids

The things they told us as kids that would happen to video games, and how far we’ve come. Very far. Below I give you a list of things I’ve been told (as well as things you may have heard) and how far we’ve come since these concepts being just figment of imagination.

YOU WILL BE ABLE TO IMMERSE YOURSELF SOMEHOW IN THE GAME

Sure, when we were told this, we were already playing games like Duck Hunt with a light gun controller, so technically, that was already done. But we were told that it would become more complicated than this. For example, in 2003, Sony, with collaboration from Logitech, released the Eye Toy, a webcam like device that can track your movements and translate them into the gameplay (those minigames that came with the Eye Toy often were fun) as well as take your picture and plaster it over a created character. (ex: Tony Hawk’s Underground) It was technologies like this that helped propel now existing technologies like Kinect and the successor to the Eye Toy, the Playstation Eye (and the new PS4 version as well.) Then there were games like Gran Turismo that supported a steering wheel, Dance Dance Revolution which supported a Dance pad (which was also technically seen before during the NES days) and a Skate Board-esque device with “Tony Hawk’s Ride.” not to mention the Nintendo Wii made a point with this often times with its unique controller design that resembled a remote. Plus with Project Morpheus/Occulus Rift, we see games in a whole new world. Well, assuming Facebook does the right thing.

YOU WILL BE ABLE TO STREAM GAMES

Sure, often times when you went to one of those ‘middle to high end’ hotels, they often times offered a chance to let you stream Mortal Kombat into your room at an extortionate rate, which is why chances are your parents usually said “No, Thanks.” But your parents did warn you “Someday this will be the norm in the household. We currently don’t have something that can stream console games, but we will soon via PlayStation Now. For now, our cable set top boxes sometimes let us stream low bandwidth games just like the hotels in our heyday did (yet my STB doesn’t offer me Mortal Kombat, but I digress) and we DO have services like OnLive for PC games.

THE CARTRIDGE WILL MAKE A COMEBACK

 

 

Now that flash media isn’t as expensive to produce as it was during the N64 days, can hold more, and has better durability over CD based media, its no wonder why Sony used flash based media for the PSVita, why the DS lines for Nintendo still use cartridges as well, and why people just use memory cards like SD, Memory Stick, M2 etc to store plenty of games. Blu Ray discs can hold over 50GB, but I HAVE seen 2TB SD cards. Plus the read speed compared to CD media is no comparison. Cartridges are here to stay. THEN AGAIN….

ALL PHYSICAL MEDIA WILL BE OBSOLETE

Why buy software that takes up physical space when you can stream it? Or download it. And believe me, Steam has made a killing on download only games. Hell, some companies chose to release their games digitally only. Even though it was a failure, the PSPgo was marketed for download only. There’s advantages to having physical copies (less space taken up in a hard drive, less bandwidth consumed) but as far as BluRay technology has come, some people have sworn off physical altogether, making all these advances to Bluray discs arguably obsolete.

YOUR CONSOLE WILL BE MORE AND MORE USEFUL IN THE LIVINGROOM

Starting with the PS2, our consoles were DVD players on the side. And our parents LOVED THIS.  I didn’t so much at the time. I wanna f**kin play, why do you have to watch your movie now? But why buy a DVD player AND a gaming system when you could save money and get an ALL-IN-ONE. Sure right now a DVD player AND a BluRay player can be bought for next to nothing, but at the time of the PS2′s release, DVD players were EXPENSIVE. Our consoles come with a lot of the features of a standard player, such as support for Surround Sound devices, that it’s becoming normal for a gaming system to find home in EVERYONE’S living room. You can even buy a remote for them, or in the case of HDMI Sync, you can control the console with your TV remote. Plus, they can play CD’s, MP3′s, can stream music from PC’s or the internet, can watch Netflix, sporting events. the Xbox One cashed in on this. Although for the time being both the PS4 and the XBOX ONE backpedaled and don’t support MP3 or CD’s, but time will tell.

YOU WILL BE ABLE TO PLAY ONLINE

You were told this when chances are you were still discovering the internet on your PC. with the Sega Saturn in Japan, through external attachments, it was possible to play online. This technology was later introduced elsewhere with the successor, Sega Dreamcast, though also with an attachment. the Xbox hade native online support, but you had to pay. The PS2 needed an attachment at first, through a slot that Sony left in the unit “for a rainy day” but as time went on, The Slim line units had an Ethernet port built in. the Xbox 360 again had paid online, but retained Ethernet only. The Wii and PS3 were the first to have wifi built in.

YOU WILL BE ABLE TO PLAY YOUR FAVORITE GAMES ON YOUR PHONE, BESIDES SNAKE

We all loved Snake, the game where you chase a dot and grow and grow and grow. But now we can play GTA San Andreas on our phones. The only thing we cant do is play Mario games. Well, we can, but without Nintendo’s blessing, anyway.

PRETTY SOON, VIDEO GAMES WILL LOOK REAL, ALMOST LIKE WATCHING A MOVIE

Remember the 8 bit era? Such fond memories. And remember how cartoony everything was during the PSX/N64 era? Some games go for realism. graphics have become so complex that now its almost like looking in the mirror. Its like watching a movie. It’s beautiful.

We’ve had a lot of advances to our consoles, and its been fun. But there still is ONE idea I have heard will happen, but hasn’t happened. And I await it…

EVENTUALLY, YOU WILL PLAY VIDEO GAMES NOT THROUGH THE TV, NOR ANY SCREEN, BUT HOLOGRAMS

Remember in 2012 when Tupac “came back to life” at Coachella? Like that. Holograms will be controllable. Imagine it like this, you’re palying Mortal Kombat on a plain surface, you just made your friend’s hologram Subzero a burn victim via hologram Scorpion’s “Toasty!” fatality. This is the only thing I have left to see that I was told would happen. So, anybody have any thoughts? Additions? Sound off.

PS3 Game List v3.1 Released

wborland has updated PS3 Game List to v3.1. PS3 Game List is a PC file manager for PS3.

This new addition brings huge bug fixes and overall improvements.

Yet another revision bringing PS3 Game List to v3.1. As mentioned before, the main goal was to work on the application engine so it could better accommodate upcoming changes. Roughly, it means tons of fixes, and game data loading up to 80% faster.

This version implements a new feature: UDF (ISO 13346) file system support. In addition to loading ISO 9660 files, users can both create and load UDF 2.50 ISO images of their game folders. PS3GL now supports loading split ISO images as well.

Moreover, the app now fully supports Unicode characters in game folders (finally no more errors while loading data or mass renaming).

Check the changelog below for all the 3.0 features.

As usual, feel free to suggest something new, and, if you happen to find any bugs, please report them as well.
PS3 Game List change-log and features:

v3.1

Improved application engine (game data will load up to 80% faster);
UDF (ISO 13346) file system image support (users can both create and load UDF 2.50 ISO images of games in their library; data stored as an ISO image will not be editable; an icon will overlay both avatar and background image in order to differentiate the entry from standard game folders, and the tooltip will display additional info about the volume; note that ISO images do not follow the ‘folder depth’ configuration, just have them stored at the root of a directory and they will be loaded as a regular game folder);
Support for loading split ISO images (e.g.: filename.iso.0, filename.iso.1, etc.);
Support for Unicode characters in game folders;
Fixed issue that prevented displaying trophies from ISO images;
Fixed bug that prevented opening folders in explorer;
Fixed bug while extracting trophy data;

PSA: Metal Gear Solid 5 still on for Xbox 360, PS3.

Current-gen release.

Metal Gear Solid 5: Phantom pain is still coming to PS3 and Xbox 360. This clarification from a representative from Konami is enough to end with speculation about MGS5 not being release to current-gen consoles.

To quote:

Put your exclamation marks down! Despite previous-gen platform listings being absent from a recent Game Informer cover story, Konami has confirmed that Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain is still coming to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Hideo Kojima’s next big title is also slated to hit Xbox One and PS4.

MGSV TPP [The Phantom Pain] will be available on both current and next gen!” a Konami representative told Joystiq. We hope that clears it up for the many readers that sent us questions and tips in the wake of Game Informer’s story.

The next installment of the Metal Gear story will ship in two pieces: a teaser adventure dubbed Ground Zeroesdue this March, followed by a complete sequel titled The Phantom Pain at an undetermined date.

PS3 Game Updater v0.91

The creator of PS3 ISO Tools how now released a new PC app for PS3 known as PS3 Game Updater Tool. It is basically a small tool to create and manage PS3 game updates.

PS3 GAME UPDATER V0.9

by Rudi Rastelli

Credits:

@TeamSOS for ‘Allunpkg’

@DeLiGht for ‘psn_package_npdrm’

@ aldostools for ‘game-database’

Feature-List:

Obtain PS3 game update(s) by simply selecting a game in one of it’s 3 usual formats(PKG / ISO / Folder).

Aborted downloads will be resumed

Already downloaded not outdated game-updates will be skipped

Outdated game-updates will optionally be deleted

The update-files(*.pkg) get well readable names… thx @ aldostools database

In Normal-Mode you can select which game-updates to download or not

Batch-Mode to download all updates for all(or selected) games of a game-archive

PKG-Extractor via ‘Extra’-menu (should be able to extract any “*.pkg”-file… not even update-files)

Usage:

Hopefully self-explanatory… read the tool-tips

Notes:

– Updates will be stored to the folder u’ve selected on 1st start… You can change that folder via ‘Extra’-menu

This folder is kind of an game-updates-archive.

If you don’t select anything here a “MyPS3GamesUpdates”-folder will be created and used inside progam-folder

– Using the “Delete outdated Updates”-option in batch-mode allows you to clean up your game-updates-archive and keep it up-to-date.

Tip: To “clean up” only: Activate batch-mode -> Select your game-archiv -> Select NO game -> [Download]-Button

– If database(‘database.txt’) isn’t there for ISOs and folders the game-name from “PARAM.SFO”, for PKGs the name of “*.pkg”-file and

for manually entering the GameID the GAMEID itself will be used.

– In batch mode select a game-archive-folder. E.g “…/GAMES/”, “…/PS3ISO/”, “…/MyPSNGames/” etc etc

– Extracted PKG-files will be stored in a folder with same name and at the same directory as the PKG-file
