A couple weeks ago, Yifan Lu shook the Vita scene by announcing almost explicitly that he will be releasing a hack for the Vita, running through PSM.

The condition, however, is to get a valid PSM publisher license… which could be tricky given that sony will stop approving these requests at the end of the month.

With Yifan Lu’s announce, requests to PSM skyrocketted, and Sony’S PSM division reacted by replying to most queries that they would handle in priority people who have an actual work-in-progress app and screenshots to prove it.

Most of the people requesting the license for “hacking” purpose of course do not have a work in progress game.

It is, however, just a matter of faking it after all. The PSM team will probably not look very deep into your “screenshot”, and you could provide them with a couple random screenshots to make your application for a publisher’s license more real.

psm_publisher_license

I’m not advocating for that of course, but user niszczycielnpc on our forums seems to have had some success, by faking some work and sending the result to Sony’s PSM team. He writes:

1. You need to rename some thing’s in demo app so sony would think is your work’ Then you make a screenshot xD
http://scr.hu/2w7y/15p3a
2. Make custom loading screen or a mainmenu in paint and make an window like this http://scr.hu/2w7y/7jwos.
3. Connect everything.
4. make screenshot and send to sony :v

Thats how it gonna look http://scr.hu/2w7y/xmkao
Thats what you gonna get from sony xD
http://scr.hu/2w7y/t17b8

If you’re going that route, be creative I guess. reusing other people’s assets is going to work so many times. Fool me once…

This Best Sellers list paints a gloomy picture of Xbox and Nintendo saleshttp://wololo.net/2015/05/22/this-best-sellers-list-paints-a-gloomy-picture-of-xbox-and-nintendo-sales/ http://wololo.net/2015/05/22/this-best-sellers-list-paints-a-gloomy-picture-of-xbox-and-nintendo-sales/#comments Fri, 22 May 2015 01:45:39 +0000 http://wololo.net/?p=26305 I was recently checking Amazon’s best sellers list in video games, and, although I can’t really say I was surprised, I was not sure what to make of the results: Sony is dominating Amazon...

I was recently checking Amazon’s best sellers list in video games, and, although I can’t really say I was surprised, I was not sure what to make of the results:

Sony is dominating Amazon video games sales

In Amazon’s top 20 products for video games, the 4 first products are Sony products. Specifically, PSN Digital codes of respectively $20, $10, and $50, followed by the Witcher 3 for Playstation 4.

The next product, in 5th position, is an Xbox online code, followed by an Xbox One wireless controller.

The only Nintendo product in the top 20 is the upcoming Splatoon, ironically, in 20th position.

Sony is not totally crushing it, though: Overall, in the top 20, 9 products are Sony products, 9 products are Microsoft ones, 1 product is for PC, 1 product is for Nintendo.

amzn_best_sellers

If you look more in details though, The Witcher 3 on PS4 is the 4th best seller, and 7th for Xbox One. Not a big difference…. but at the time of this writing, the PS4 product has 42 reviews, while the Xbox One version has 18 reviews. From these numbers, assuming that the Witcher 3 sold more than twice on PS4 than it did on Xbox One wouldn’t be that much of a stretch. After all, it’s not a secret at this point that the PS4 is largely dominating the sales for this generation of the console war. Both the PS4 and XBO versions of the Witcher 3 are getting great reviews, in case you wondered.

Will the Xbox One get back in the race?

There’s of course more to it than just a “best sellers” list. The PSN digital codes are extremely convenient to buy on Amazon, and most of you probably know already that this is the best technique to buy US PSN Codes if you’re outside of the US. This could skew Amazon’s best selling list significantly if many people are using this trick.

playstation-4-vs-xbox-one

E3 is coming soon, and some people are saying this could be the year Microsoft’s Xbox One gets back into the race. What do you think? (I won’t even mention Nintendo, I don’t think they compete in the same league as Sony and Microsfot anymore)

Sony has removed the japanese demo of the Toukiden Kiwami game from their japanese Playstation Store.

The japanese PSP demo of said game had been required to launch & use the VHBL on PS Vita firmware 3.51.

If you think you can just use the demo from your familiar PSN Store, then please read on to know why this won’t work…

PSP

As it has been the case since many many years, you are required to buy (in this case free of charge) an exploit game to hack your PSP (used to be the case) or PS Vita (still the case).

The exploit game had to be a Playstation Portable game, and so far nothing has changed about this.

351VHBL-JP

While it is correct that there is a Toukiden Kiwami demo in the western PSN stores, it happens to be a PS Vita demo version, opposed to a PSP demo version.

Since you are required to have the PSP demo version for the VHBL, you are not able to use the demo from your familiar (presumable western) PSN store to exploit the game and run the VHBL on your device.

It seems that the Japanese PSN Store had been the only one which offered a PSP demo of Toukiden Kiwami, until now.

psvita-download-list

The demo got removed from the Playstation Store, and if you did not add it to your download list & download it onto your PS Vita, well then you are too late.

Like usually, you are unable to purchase the free demo, and you should be unable to re-download it as well (this varies from pull to pull).

But fret not, because the next VHBL release might come sooner than you think.

Want Spotify PS4 to work for you even if the Spotify music service for PS4 isn’t available in your country yet? Then you’re in luck, as we found a simple and free way to accomplish this.

Note from Wololo: This tutorial was initially published by /Talk member Orangpelupa, as part of our monthly tutorial contest. Orangpelupa won the best PS4 tutorial prize in April (a $10 PSN Code) for his entry. You can find the original post here.


Spotify PS4 on Unsupported Region Without proxy or DNS trick

As you already know, Sony killed Music Unlimited and they replaced it with Spotify. But what if you live in an unsupported region? Here’s how to access Spotify for free.

  1. Install Hola on Chrome and change region to US.
  2. Go to spotify.com and register.
  3. Download and Install Spotify App on PS4 using US PSN Account.

Spotify PS4

Now you just need to login to Spotify PS4 and it works without proxy or DNS tricks. If you want Spotify from other regions, just do the same trick but change the region as needed.

From what I gather, currently Spotify on PS4 does not do any IP check/blocking. It simply checks your Spotify account for correct region.

To play this BD, you must renew the encryption key:

AACS (Advanced Access Content System) is a copyright-protection technology that is used on Blu-ray movies.
The copyrighted content is protected by setting an encryption key on both the disc and the device used to play the disc.
An AACS encryption key expires in 12 to 18 months and must be renewed.

If you, like me, prefer to stay on 4.46 and not to update, you wont be able to watch recently bought blu ray movies.
You will be greeted with a message like this :

ps3_bluray_error
(Translation: To play this BD, you must renew the encryption key. Perform a system software update to renew the encryption key.)

What you need:

  • Playstation 3 Console on Version 4.46
  • Playstation 3 Update 4.50 PUP File for CEX/Retail (everything lower than 4.70 can work, not 4.70 tho)
  • pupunpack, depkg, unpkg or similar tools for unpacking updates
  • Multiman, dev_blind or similar tool for ftp, accessing dev_flash
  • scetool or similar for decrypting, resigning
  • and skills to use them

What we will do:

The “key” (literally) lies within a file called “AacsModule.spu.isoself”.
We need to resign this file from Update 4.50 for 4.46 and replace it on the console.

Preparations

Get a hold of the PS3UPDAT.PUP of Firmware Version 4.50.
(MD5::E3DECAF8BEEF0ABC8F7999F66DE05AF9, SHA1::2F879E594841CD0821CDF55AD049AAD864EDEB89)

Make sure you got all necessary information for decryption inside data/key-file for scetool, namely:

[isoldr]
type=SELF
version=0004004600000000
self_type=ISO
revision=0001
(…keys…)

[isoldr]
type=SELF
version=0004005000000000
self_type=ISO
revision=0001
(…keys…)

Step 0: Unpacking

Use your favorite tool and

  • unpack the PS3UPDAT.PUP
  • extract “dev_flash_022.tar.aa.2013_09_14_050612″ from “update_files.tar”
  • decrypt “dev_flash_022.tar.aa.2013_09_14_050612″ and extract “/dev_flash/bdplayer/AacsModule.spu.isoself”

Step 1: Decryption

Locate the just extracted isoself module and decrypt it using scetool.

Decrypt Command:

scetool --verbose -d AacsModule.spu.isoself AacsModule.spu450.elf

Output:

scetool 0.2.9 (C) 2011-2013 by naehrwert
NP local license handling (C) 2012 by flatz

[*] Loaded keysets.
[*] Loaded loader curves.
[*] Loaded vsh curves.
[*] Using keyset [isoldr 0x0001 04.50]
[*] Header decrypted.
[*] Data decrypted.
[*] ELF written to AacsModule.spu450.elf.

Step 2: Resigning

Unlike game selfs, isoldr elfs need to be signed specific for firmware version and are not interchangeable simply by replacing.

  • Start up Multiman and your ftp program
  • Get yourself a hold of your original “/dev_flash/bdplayer/AacsModule.spu.isoself”
  • This can be a good backup incase of problems, and we use it as template
  • Rename the copied file on your Computer (not Console!) “AacsModule.spu.isoself” to “AacsModule_446.spu.isoself” (Alternative: Get a 4.46 PS3UPDAT.PUP and decrypt it like in step 0 to get a hold of its file.)
  • We will now resign AacsModule.spu450.elf. with AacsModule_446.spu.isoself as template to a new AacsModule.spu.isoself.
Resign Command:
 scetool --verbose --template=AacsModule_446.spu.isoself --sce-type=SELF -e AacsModule.spu450.elf AacsModule.spu.isoself

Output:

scetool 0.2.9 (C) 2011-2013 by naehrwert
NP local license handling (C) 2012 by flatz

[*] Loaded keysets.
[*] Loaded loader curves.
[*] Loaded vsh curves.
[*] Using keyset [isoldr 0x0001 04.46]
[*] Template header decrypted.
[*] SELF built.
[*] Data encrypted.
[*]AacsModule.spu.isoself written.

Make sure it is using the isoldr keyset for Version 4.46, the target system.
Now we will only have to replace this new file on the system.

Step 3: Replacing

  • Start up Multiman incase you didnt before
  • Enable “writeable”dev_flash”” in settings column (it is usually the 4th least option)
  • /dev_flash will now become available for replacing files, mounted as /dev_blind
  • Overwrite older “/dev_blind/bdplayer/AacsModule.spu.isoself” with your newly resigned isoself (Remember: /dev_blind not /dev_flash !)
  • Exit Multiman

Step 4:

  • Insert your BD Movie and watch it. (tested with MKB v47)

Developer capito27 released “Pasta CFW” which relies on Ninjhax and works on both Old and New 3DS. Big news is, it allows unsigned .cia installing/loading.

We have Custom Firmwares on 3DS scene for sometime. The anti-piracy NTR CFW (both old and new 3DS), rxTools (old 3ds) and  Govanify leaked CFW (old 3ds, 4.x firmwares). There are also flashcarts like Gateway and Sky3DS. Pasta CFW is the first time you can install and boot unsigned .cia files without a flashcart for New 3DS. For old 3ds, the leaked CFW works but it is limited to 4.x firmwares and old games as new games require new keys. It also has a high unsuccessful boot rate.

Pasta CFW couldlead to more piracy

I know the question in your mind and yes, you guessed it right. Pasta CFW lets pirating as long as you have a Cubic Ninja cartridge and you are on the required firmware. Piracy is possible on 3DS for a long time, but this release will make it much easier and cheaper as it doesn’t depend on a flashcart. Also this CFW can boot DSiWare and GBA games which Gateway cannot.

Pasta CFW needs a retail Cubic Ninja cartridge on the same region as your 3DS, it works on N3DS 9.0-9.2 and O3DS 4.1-4.5 / 8.0-8.1 / 9.0-9.2. As Pasta CFW doesn’t use emuNAND, it installs stuff to your sysNAND so be careful about what you install. It would be wise to especially stay away from installing system .cia files.

Here are the two video instructions by author capito27:

 

 

Expect another price increase in Cubic Ninja cartridges and let’s see how flashcart companies (especially Gateway) will answer to this piracy solution.

Well this week, amongst an awesome giveaway hosted by us, there’s news on the new Ratchet& Clank movie & game, and news on the WoW 100k Banhammer!

 

This week, we’ve had a nice amount of news, some of which being a fair amount of gameplay of the latest Assassins Creed installment, and 19 screenshots from the PS4 version of Final Fantasy X|X-2 and unfortunately I noticed I missed out PS Trivia last week! This week, I’ll be showing twice the amount, to make up for it!


In the title, I mentioned a new Wipeout game, well  not technically, but it’s extremely similar.

A Kickstarter project, which goes by the name of Formula Fusion, could be coming to the Vita; but unfortunately unless it can raise £350,000 in a matter of 5 days, it doesn’t look like it.

Hopefully, with a slight glimmer of hope Sony will actually pick up on this and push for a Vita version, but I doubt it.

 

The game does look amazing though, developed by ex-studio Liverpool guys, (the team behind WipEout) the game is dubbed as a spiritual successor to WipEout, it looks almost identical and could be seen as a sequel, just look at the video below.

I don’t have the money to back unfortunately :( But I certainly would If I could.

Although it has reached its funding, I presume that the lack of reaching it’s stretch goals, kind of shows that people aren’t going crazy over it, and there isn’t the demand that was originally there when PS1, PS2 and PS3 were released, and the Vita version was the nail in the coffin for Studio Liverpool.

Clicking on the K will lead you to their Kickstarter page, at time of writing their funding is at £52,319/35,000


 

Ooh, how exciting! Sony has announced their time for their E3 conference, giving us UK residents a reason to stay up late into the night.

I have booked my holiday for this, so I and other guest bloggers will be covering the conferences and everything that slips through the cracks that you may not hear about!

I may just be writing a blog on what to expect from E3 in the week! Keep an eye out!

Believe it or not, there will be an Assassins Creed game coming out this year, I reported on it’s announcement last week, and it seemingly has been re-named from Victory too ‘Syndicate’

I do enjoy the AC games, but the last 2 games, Black Flag and Unity, spoiler alert, you aren’t actually an Assassin.

Edward Kenway was never accepted, even though he was referred to as a ‘Master Assassin’ in Unity,  and  Arno Dorian was banished for his lackadaisical non-following of the creed. I can’t remember if he was re-accepted; could a commenter please confirm? I’m pretty sure he wasn’t, however.

This doesn’t really seem like much of an Assassins Creed game either, in the video below you’ll see him high-jacking a horse and carriage… not all sly-like and quick like an assassin, but violently kicking them off the carriage. Yup. Just like an Assassin.

 

An interesting twist in the game, however, is that there are two protagonists this time, a brother and a sister; Jacob and Evie Frye.

On the flip side of  this madness, in the gameplay video above it seems like Evie Frye is the Assassin, and Jacob is the brute of the duo. So maybe there is a true assassin in this game after all.

If you’d like to see the trailer, follow this link.

Like I said in the beginning, there’s been some good and bad news regarding the Ratchet and Clank Film and Game.

The good news is, that is will feature a star-studded cast, with the addition of the following actors (I was even surprised myself)

  • Sylvester Stallone.
  • Paul Giamatti
  • John Goodman
  • Rosario Dawson

The cast will also feature the voices of Ratchet, Clank and Nefarious;  Arnold Taylor, David Kaye and Armin Shimerman respectively.

I guess Stallone is getting pretty desparate though, considering he did an advert in the UK for bread.

Yup.

 

The bad news? Well that comes in the terms of a delay. The film was supposed to be released later this year, but the film and game have both been pushed back intoApril 29th 2016, not a crazy delay but still rather annoying.

Ryan Schneider had this to say about the delay:

While you might have to wait a bit longer than expected, rest assured we’re using the time wisely to further polish the game to a spit-shine level, with dazzling shader response, awe-inspiring effects, velvety smooth animations, and spectacular new gameplay segments. Really, we can’t wait to show it to you.

Among other PS4 game announced this week, a new game for Project Morpheus was announced. This game is a dinosaur/dragon survival type game, I presume. Something pretty awesome you can do in it however is actually ride dinosaurs. How awesome is that?!?!

The game will launch with 60 different species types, and will feature ‘a fully persistent game world, tens of thousands of AI entities, totally destructible foliage and environment, and multiplayer on a huge scale.’

How awesome.

Don’t worry though, although designed with VR in mind, the game will be playable without it. So it’s not a big deal if you don’t have the Morpheus, as it will be releasing on the Xbox One and other platforms also.

It seems among a GoTY re-release for the game Dishonoured, it’s time to bring this game to next(current)-gen also.

Dishonoured: Definitive Edition has been upped on the Brazilian rating site, take a look at the image below, and click on it to send you to the page:

Unfortunately, the image gives no information about which consoles it will be releasing on, nor does it give us any information on a release date.

I’d guess there’ll be an official announcement at E3, hopefully with a release date too, as scoring for the rating is more toward the last thing developers seem to do when developing a game.

Well anyway, the first set of songs have been announced for the game, and most of them are pretty familiar:

 

  • Avenged Sevenfold – “Hail to the King”
  • Fleetwood Mac – “You Make Loving Fun”
  • Jack White – “Lazaretto”
  • The Killers – “Somebody Told Me”
  • Spin Doctors – “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong”
  • The Who – “The Seeker”

Altough you’ve probably bought this game twice now, why not buy it a third time?

Below, are screenshots for the PS4 version of the Final Fantasy X|X-2, I personally couldn’t see too much of an improvement to the PS3 version, but I’m sure if you were to put them side by side we’d see a difference.

Last week, I told you guys about the Oculus Rift has now been announced for a retail date.

Well, following that they have announced what sort of rig you’d need to run this baby, and it’s not for the laptop users, that’s for sure:

 

  • NVIDIA GTX 970 / AMD 290 equivalent or greater
  • Intel i5-4590 equivalent or greater
  • 8GB+ RAM
  • Compatible HDMI 1.3 video output
  • 2x USB 3.0 ports
  • Windows 7 SP1 or newer

 

Although this is pretty powerful, I’d bet most people who have their hearts set on it already are either over, or at these benchmarks required.

 

 

I certainly would like to have a go on the Oculus, even though I do have my eyes set on the Morpheus.

Something I’d really like to see thoguhg, is for EVERY game to be compatible with the Morpheus, and rather than using it like a VR headset, just a personal cinema, so you’ve got an amazing big *** screen right infront of you with no visual distractinos around you…..

Blizzard, the developers behind WoW, have cracked down on all the bots in the game, and ultimately banned over 100k accounts for automated use, e.g. a bot

I honestly feel like this comes a little bit too late. If there were over 100 thousand accounts on there being run by a bot, how many of these forced forced players to quit and mad the game unplayable, ergo why they’ve lost 3 million subscribers from the begginig of the year (Now down to 7.1)

Better late than never though!

Soul Saga is a game for PS4, Vita, PC, and many other platforms, and we’ve partnered with DisasterCake, who has a message for all of you, to host a giveaway!

You may recognise Soul Saga, I’ve blogged about it multiple times before, once about its announcement while it was on Kickstarter, and once again when it had a massive overhaul in art quality. Read the first one here and the art update here.

 

 

So what’s this game about? Let’s let the man himself, Mike Gale, explain:

Hello! My name is Mike Gale (Disastercake) and I’m the Game Designer, Writer, Programmer, Art Director, Project Manager, and many other roles on Soul Saga. Soul Saga is my love letter to classics that I fell in love with growing up. Soul Saga takes the best of what I like about both classic and new games and implements fun new perspectives on them. Some of the features that can be found in Soul Saga are its multiple storylines, secret recruitable characters, strategic combat, lunchbox crafting, costumes, magical Amber, upgradable weapons, airship exploration, airship combat, Guild Hall, epic optional bosses, arena, world map, 100 floor optional dungeon, and Guild Quest System. There are many other fun and exciting features that make Soul Saga amazing, and I can’t wait to show it all off to you when she’s finished!

One of the most unique things about Soul Saga’s development is that the game design is open to voting by the public. This means that anyone with a Disastercake Forum key can have a huge impact on how the gameplay ends up. The most important people in a game’s life are its fans, and I LOVE getting feedback from Soul Saga’s fans. We’ve all been working closely together to make sure Soul Saga reaches its maximum potential, and it couldn’t have been as good without this tight community with open and flexible sharing of ideas.

If you’re a JRPG fan then I invite you to come join in on the fun as Soul Saga grows into a great game!

 

Dungeons, crafting, guild quests, and most awesomely?

AIRSHIP BATTLES. Oh my.

Read more about the game via their Kickstarter page, which features their a nice amount of detail on the game.

Here is the latest video update for the Beta, showing off a small part of the story and also showing off the additional parts in the game, different outfits, the ability to teleport between checkpoints, the ever so sexy world map, different stores and an ever so impressive guild board, for side quests!

So how does it work?


They key you will receive; should you be a successful entrant, you will be PM’ed link for the humble store where you will need to use your account to claim the Beta, and it will work via a DRM-Free download on the PC, Linux, and Mac.  You will also get a registration key for the private Disastercake forums where you can pitch in your feedback to help shape Soul Saga.

 

How do I enter?!?!


Easy!

All you have to do is drop a comment here on the /talk thread explaining why you would like to play the beta, and what interests you about it and after 48 hours, I’ll randomly PM the lucky entrants with a code to the beta!

http://wololo.net/talk/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=42789

Also, if you have any questions regarding the game, the developer will be hovering around the /talk thread to answer any and all questions!

If you want to simply support the developer however, you can head here to purchase the Beta for $15.

 

 


The game doesn’t have a solid release date yet, but I’d hazard a guess around Q1 2016 for PC/Mac/Linux, as development seems smooth with still a seemingly fair amount to go.

Important update: we mistakenly wrote that the US name of the game was “Toukiden: Age of Demons” but it is actually Toukiden: Kiwami. The Japanese name is still accurate, and this doesn’t change a thing: unless stated otherwise, you need to create a Japanese account on the PSN in order to get this PSP Demo.

Japanese developer 173210 has released an VHBL for the PS Vita (and PS TV) firmware 3.51.

The required exploit game is Toukiden: Kiwami (DEMO) and it is only available in the Japanese Playstation Store (as far as we know).

As the name of the game lets you assume, it is in fact a Demo version of the Toukiden: Kiwami (『討鬼伝 極 体験版』) game. This means the game is free!

As showcased in the video above, you can see that you can easily run the VHBL via this free exploit game, if you are capable of getting it onto your device, that is.

Keep in mind that the VHBL is still being improved (its version number indicates version 0.1), but the game is free of charge, so who are you to complain about this.

The demo version of Toukiden: Kiwami can be obtained via the Japanese Playstation Store, or simply via this Online-Store link (Still JP-Only).

ps_vita_2000CXMB

Since firmware 3.51 has fixed the public kernel mode exploits, which are required to run the ARK-2 & TN-V11 eCFWs, you won’t be able to use those on firmware 3.51.

If you happen to be on firmware 3.50 (three point five zero!), then you are able to grab this exploit game and run TN-V & ARK-2 (theoretically).

Once again this Japanese exploit was found by Japanese developer 173210. He has released various Japanese exploits in the past, and has also improved the VHBL’s source by quite a lot!

Funnily enough, this exploit has been found by a few other developers as well, but they used the UMD Version(s) of the game for their exploits.

Download Vita Half Byte Loader for Firmware 3.51

You can easily download the FW 3.51 VHBL files for Toukiden: Kiwami (demo version) here.
