Google celebrating kuwait’s independance day!

Google usually change the way ‘google’ is written on their homepage in celebration or memory of certain events in the memory of the lives of notable people from the past. Today it seems that google have changed their homepage in celebration for kuwait’s independence day! This was great to see especially since they did a great job in the design of the homepage while integrating the kuwait towers as the “O’s” in ‘google’ and at the same time including the kuwaiti flag across all the other letters.

Also PSWin and I would like to wish everyone a happy independence and national day!

Fight The Power

Well we all know that geohot is getting sued, and sony is sueing them for qrong reasons, if you are one of the lovely people who are in for just the homebrew and the addition of cool features on your PS3, and want hacking to continue, then please help geohot and donate a few bucks.

People have every right to do whatever they want to do with their PS3 when they buy it an people like geohot, KaKaroTcKs, fail0verflow and people should not be getting sued, infact they have not enabled any piracy related software, only jailbroken the device.

Long story short, Sony hates hackers, and will pretty much try to make everyone bend over for them, well this time it’s time to stand against these lying cunts and fight.

Sony Takes Out The BanHammer

Seems like sony has finally pulled out the hammer, after 6 months of hackers fighting against the updates, Sony has finally started banning people who have hacked hobrew, or software running on their PS3, this happens only days after the PS3 MFW was released and a bypass to get PSN on PS3 versions lower than 3.56.

This is bad news for those gamers who actually use legit games, and are only into the hacking scene cause if the add-ons and homebrew stuff you can get. I myself had predicted this coming after lots of Black Ops gamers were banned, and as soon as people had found out how to get on PSN on jailbroken devices.

What does this mean for Sony? nothing to be honest, despite more than 1000 gamers using hacks, about 3/4th of them will buy a new PS3 to play on PSN again, so in turn they have pretty much raised their profits, however i don’t see many of the fellow Sony fan boys looking up to them anymore.

Personally i haven’t touched my PS3 since i heard this news, and I haven’t missed it much, however with a bunch of new games coming out in the coming months I may regret it. All I hope is some brave people can revolt against Sony and hope they become more hack friendly like Microsoft is becoming…

Playstation Phone Is Real

So a few weeks ago, we had posted about rumors about the PSP2 being a phone, sadly that was not the case, there will be a PSP 2 with no phone, but there is going to be a phone which will act as a PSP as well. It has been named as Xperia Play, as you can guess if you follow mobiles, it will be made by Sony Erricson, the official announcement was made day before during the super bowl.

The phone runs on android, and has the same features a normal android phone would have, like facebook and etc. It also comes with a 5 mega pixel camera, the main addition is when you slide open, you’ll have a game pad, however there are no analog sticks. It is yet to be known how games will be played, but i think it will either be through Memory stick or through the PSN store like on the PSPGo. There has been a preview by engadget but it seems to be a prototype with a lot of bugs.

The design itself looks quite good, and could be worth the money, this could increase competition against the iPhone and with the NGP also probably giving the idevices more stiff competition this year. It will be officially announced on the 13th of February so 5 days away from now, and I shall post about it as soon as it launches.

Sony re-releases 3.56

Seems like Sony has released another small update for 3.56, this time it is to fix a bug which people were experiencing when upgrading their HDD nothing big, but nobody knows what else has been implemented, as already found out on the 3.56 before this, that Sony can find out if you are running homebrew or not.

For those who are still running 3.55 and hoping for a 3.56 jailbreak, and at the same time wanting to play online, then download LG5ProxyTool, and you should be fine.
