Do you remember Flappy Bird? It was big for about 2 weeks in January and then it disappeared almost as fast as it came, so people won’t blame you if you missed that. Flappy Bird was a controversial game, addictive yet clearly cheap in its programming and design.

Flappy Bird was also accused of plagiarism because its graphics were heavily inspired by the original Mario games, and, maybe more importantly, it was claimed that the game’s creator made $50’000 a day at its peak of popularity. But the author took the game down from the various appstore in order to get rid of the controversy around the game’s popularity vs its actual quality.

As you all probably know, last year the was an exploit on the Brazilian PlayStation Store that allowed users to repeatedly purchase a PS Plus subscription without paying a dime. This has apparently happened again on another store now. The US PSN Store, where a PS4 owner was able to subscribe to PS Plus until 2035. On the topic of PS Plus, there is also a method out there for any new PS Plus user to get PS Plus free, for three months. Read the rest of this entry »

image Sorry for the long wait but here is my third but not final PS Vita hardware mod. In the comments for my last mod I saw that a few of you didn’t want an LED mod. I was planning to do one anyway so here it is. For those of you that don’t want an LED mod I made my series out of who knows what, just for you. This series will probably continue on for a while, as long as PS Vita hardware mods keep coming about. I believe that the ones to come will be something you all will love. If any of you have mods that you want to suggest to me, you can PM me on /talk, where I am JayDog. I actually have 3 LED mods here on this post and I am pretty sure that none of have seen all three. Well anyway, this mod is from zakaiya, hope you enjoy. Read the rest of this entry »

Here is part two of my PS Vita Hardware Mod series. A lot of the people with 3G Vitas complained about the last mod because they were not able to do it. Good news, both WiFi only and 3G owners can do this mod. Thanks to zakaiya, with this mod, you can add in two extra speakers to your Vita, almost accomplishing a surround sound effect. Also, those who were able to do the battery mod will also be able to do this one. There is enough space in your Vita. Read the rest of this entry »

Over the course of the next few days (hopefully) I will be bringing to you guys some tutorials on PS Vita hardware mods. This one today, courtesy of CPUzX on /talk, will allow you to install a second battery in PS Vita for increased battery life.

In this article I like to address a small but non the less inconvenient glitch that occurred with my PS Vita and the games that I had saved to my Memory Card. Read the rest of this entry »

Ok guys, you might want to hurry up and grab the game as Mathew_Wi has decided to release the exploit now as the game seems to have been leaked. This is quite disappointing actually because this is the second leak for this kernel exploit.

It seems that on a worldwide scale PlayStation 4 is slowly becoming the dominant next gen console platform (even if it’s just slightly). Now this doesn’t spell doom for team Xbox One, both industry giants have sold a nice amount of systems since release which was barely two months ago. But off course Microsoft is looking to sway owners of the previous generation to buy into the Xbox One experience.

PS Vita piracy now possible?

After Yifan Lu’s great hardware reports about the PS Vita, its motherboard and its nand, our user Katsu found a way for dual booting the PS Vita, which can kind of be seen as a downgrade solution.

But that is not everything that he was able to do. Katsu is on fire and also looked at the Vita cartridges… see below for some more electronics joy!

If you own a 3DS you might have heard of the “Gateway 3DS” card. It is basically a flashcart for the Nintendo 3DS that will let people run roms (read: pirated 3DS games). That device was recently in the middle of a storm for embedding code that intentionally bricks some users 3DS, if used on competitors’ hardware.

DAX 1:0 PSP

The name Dark_Alex should ring in your ears, when you hear it. He was THE man, that made a lot of PSP CFWs (1.50 POC, 2.71 SE, 3.xx OE, 3.xx/4.01/5.00 M33, etc.), helped with the Pandora battery service mode, and released a lot of software for said pandora method. Dark~AleX should be known by most informed PSP scene people, and the fact that he updates his website for the PS4, might be an indication that he could return.

US PSN Accounts Password Reset
As of late the PlayStation brand has had its, in my opinion, fair share of public support. If next –gen sales numbers are correct, gamers worldwide have (re-) embraced PlayStation and I hope this trend continues when in a few day time the PS4 officially lands in Europe.

A large aspect of the new found love gamers show for PlayStation stems from the gaming company’s ability to learn from past mistakes. Hmm, no, let me rephrase that; Sony has done an excellent job at communicating a message which resonated with gamers and arguably the gaming industry as a whole. Time will tell if they can truly deliver on their message. Read the rest of this entry »

Update: various sources tell me that this section of the T&C’s is actually super old, and this is not news at all. Feel free to contact me if you know *when* that was added to the T&C’s

The latest update of the Terms and Conditions on Sony Europe’s SEN website started a little buzz in the Sony community. The culprit? Section 7 of the “Software Usage Terms” in the legal documents section of the playstation.net website.
