    For the ones who purchased GTAV, here you got some detail info about Online Gameplay. Where GTA online takes place as many other details that certainly will give you more interesting options to expand GTAV universe.

    With just hours remaining until the initial launch of Grand Theft Auto Online, here’s some more information to share to help get everyone ready for tomorrow. You can also look forward to plenty of GTA Online game tips and other community support features to roll out at the Rockstar Games Social Club website tomorrow as well  – expect tutorial tips to be updated regularly as new content is added to GTA Online.

    Access to GTA Online
    • Access to Grand Theft Auto Online is free with your copy of Grand Theft Auto V. On October 1st there will be a small downloadable Title Update released on PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE. Upon installation of that Title Update, direct access to begin GTA Online will be unlocked in your GTAV game menu. You will be able to jump right into GTA Online via the 4th (bottom) slot in your GTAV character wheel. We’ve received many questions asking for a specific confirmation of what exact time GTA Online will be available but of course this is contingent on both Title Updates becoming available on each console’s network. As a general timeframe, we do expect the Title Update to become available on PSN and Xbox LIVE starting around 7AM ET tomorrow morning, and your best bet is to stay tuned throughout the day here at the Rockstar Newswire and by following us on Twitter and Facebook where we will be keeping everyone updated.
    When does GTA Online Take Place?
    • Some people who’ve been playing through Grand Theft Auto V’s Story Mode have been inquiring how the narrative of GTA Online correlates or crosses over. Grand Theft Auto Online is set a few months prior to the events of Grand Theft Auto V’s single player story.

    Home and Garage Security

    • There’s plenty of havoc and treachery you can cause out in the open world of course, but in order to prevent some really annoying “griefing”, we’ve designed house party invitations specifically to be a friendly social affair where players can visit each other’s pads without fear of having them ruined or losing their hard-earned vehicles in the process. If someone invites you into their property, then it is considered a friendly visit and you will not be able to shoot up their place or steal their cars from their garage. By the way, in any given lobby, if you and another player own the same piece of property, you will each be able to enter your own personal instance of that property at any given time. You will also be able to enter each other’s instance of that property if you exchange and accept an invite. This way, multiple instances of ownership of the same property within a lobby can co-exist.

    GTA$ and Fair Play

    • To allay some concerns we’ve heard on this subject, we can assure you that the game is designed such that the option of purchasable GTA$ should not disrupt the playing field – and there are a few mechanics in place to help ensure that. All players still have to rank up with Reputation Points (RP) in order to get access to purchase high-end items.  No one can begin GTA Online and simply spend a lot of money out of the gate to get a leg up. You will have to earn your stripes and play to unlock access to the aspirational clothes, guns and other items. Please also remember that in GTA Online, hustling to afford the finer things by earning GTA$ doing robberies, stick-ups, winning races and other profitable activities is a fun gameplay experience rather than ever being a ‘grind’. As we mentioned on Wednesday, we will constantly tweak all areas of the game to make it play fairer and iron out any balancing problems (while fixing all the other problems we encounter!), but we really need your help in figuring out what those issues are. So please work with us on that!

    An Ever-Growing Collection of Jobs

    The Character Creation System

    • The hereditary-based character creation system of Grand Theft Auto Online allows for a multitude of options to create your avatar that will then inhabit the online world of Los Santos & Blaine County.  Choose your gender then decide on your mother and father.  From there, you can choose to give one parent genetic dominance or leave them more evenly matched. The choice is yours. Next, you adjust a set of lifestyle variables which help determine your character’s appearance and starting stats. Decide how much sleep he/she gets, how much partying they indulge in, how much honest work versus illegal activity, and more. Essentially, you can adjust the genetics to wind up with a fresh faced lad or lass or a grizzled, haggard degenerate or anywhere in between! You’ll also be able to preview your end result in real time all throughout to ensure you’re satisfied before putting your character on a direct flight to LS. Of course, once you’re out and about in the open world, you can further customize your character with haircuts, clothing and accessories to suit your tastes.

    It seems that the team 3k3y  is waiting to release a new version of their Ode, smaller, more compact and also fair to say more convenient to install.

    As you can see from the picture on the well-known portal logic-sunrise.com the team has deliberately removed the big board that was soldered onto the console, replacing it with the classic QSB or Solder board recently seen on Cobra Ode and E3 Ode Pro

    This version of the Slim 3k3y  (Slim 3000 ) will be available very soon, according to the team, within the next week or so.

    Good news for fans of the team waiting XKEY Slim version 3k3y. Well things are progressing as the PCB for Slim has just shown the tip of his nose. This is obviously the Slim 3000 version is presented and more information should emerge soon. Article remains in pre-order LSstore while waiting for the final PCB. The team tells us that the availability for Slim 3k will be next week, and Slim in a small 2k fortnight. The Cobra is out worldwide, the 3k3y could be a suitable replacement. For the impatient future (what we can understand when you see the production rate of some teams), the replacement of a cobra by 3k3y or vice versa will be done free of charge upon request to the store.

    If you have a rooted Android device, you can use BlueputDroid to control your PS3, handy for typing messages and watching movies/listening music, without the need of your control pad, here is a little information:

    This application will allow to use your device as a remote mouse and keyboard for your PC/PS3.
    Since low level apis are used, there is no way by now to ensure 100% compatibility with all devices (because of different bluetooth implementations of some vendors): if the log says “invalid or inactive bluetooth device” your only option is to try a different ROM like Cyanogenmod (if available).

    As promised, the first of The Last of Us’ long-awaited expansion packs will step out of the shadows on 15th October in North America and 16th October in Europe. The add-on – dubbed the Abandoned Territories pack – will include four brand new multiplayer maps, each set in decayed areas of the title’s post-apocalyptic world.

    You’ll be able to fight against fellow factions in a dynamic sandstorm on the Suburbs map, conquer a giraffe inhabited urban environment in the Bus Depot map, and stalk a twilight region in the Hometown map. Lastly, the Bookstore boasts a “stacked, bi-level layout adding a highly unique dose of vertical gameplay”.

    Of course, the aforementioned maps represent just one third of the survival horror’s Season Pass. While a further multiplayer expansion is planned for next year, developer Naughty Dog has confirmed that more single player content is on the way. The studio’s just concluded a long casting process for a new character, and is set to start its performance capture shoot next week, with a December to January release in mind.

    In order to make up for the wait, the company’s adding a couple of bonus items to the Season Pass. Those that own the DLC subscription will unlock access to sixty different head items, ranging from a Nightmare Mask to a Pigskin Hat. If you haven’t already purchased the post-release pledge, it can be bought for $19.99/€19.99.

    Sony SVP gives new information related to PS4. He states that PS4 is much quieter than PS3, and the power consumption varies from game to game.  He also goes into some detail about a secondary low power chip that can activate PS3 for automatic updates and downloading via PSN app.


    Here’s a summary of the most relevant points:

    • While being always online is not necessary, a network connection is important to fully enjoy the features of the PS4.
    • The PS4 will initially act as a stand-alone web server for the PlayStation App. In the future there’s the possibility of this to be expanded through the cloud, with the PS4 and PlayStation App interacting through the cloud, allowing cooperative play between multiple players.
    • The secondary chip for ultra-low power operation will mostly activate at night from 1 to 4 AM and download any required update automatically. It will also activate when software is purchased through external means like the PlayStation App.
    • Power consumption will vary greatly depending on the performance of the game played.
    • The noise level of the console during operation is generally much lower than it was on the PS3.
    • The PS4′s cooling fan has a low noise level and stepless speed control (meaning that it will increase its speed to match heat smoothly and not in sudden steps like the one on the PS3).
    • Since the Blu-Ray player is 6x instead of 2x (like the one on the PS3 was), the spinning noise is actually louder. Ito-san feels it’s not annoyingly louder and it will be countered by caching data on the hard disk drive. It’ll be mostly audible during the initial spin-up.
    • The Audio/Video performance (for movies and music) of the PS4 will target PS3 levels at launch, but will be improved through updates, for instance with the addition of 4K, as Sony is also an Audio/Video company.
    • The theme of the PS4 is “Personalization”, meaning that it will offer an experience tailored to each individual.

    Back in March of this year, I posted here, that nvidia chose not to be involved in the PS4′s graphics, due to Sony not giving them enough money, a few days later i posted here, the article appeared to be a sour grapes rant, where nvidia flamed the PS4 and classed it as a low power PC, now in an interview with PC PowerPlay, nvidia’s Senior Vice President of Content and Technology, Tony Tamasi, has said that it is no longer possible for a games console to have better graphics than a personal computer, here is part of what he says:

    It’s no longer possible for a console to be a better or more capable graphics platform than the PC. I’ll tell you why. In the past, certainly with the first PlayStation and PS2, in that era there weren’t really good graphics on the PC. Around the time of the PS2 is when 3D really started coming to the PC, but before that time 3D was the domain of Silicon Graphics and other 3D workstations. Sony, Sega or Nintendo could invest in bringing 3D graphics to a consumer platform. In fact, the PS2 was faster than a PC.

    By the time of the Xbox 360 and PS3, the consoles were on par with the PC. If you look inside those boxes, they’re both powered by graphics technology by AMD or NVIDIA, because by that time all the graphics innovation was being done by PC graphics companies. NVIDIA spends 1.5 billion US dollars per year on research and development in graphics, every year, and in the course of a console’s lifecycle we’ll spend over 10 billion dollars into graphics research. Sony and Microsoft simply can’t afford to spend that kind of money. They just don’t have the investment capacity to match the PC guys; we can do it thanks to economy of scale, as we sell hundreds of millions of chips, year after year.

    Source/Full Interview

    Now is this another childish example of nvidias butt hurt, or are they just telling it like it is ?

    I was debating whether this was news worth or not, but after a few minutes i decided that it will stir a conversation, so decided to post about it.

    A 17 year old from Racine County, Wisconsin, USA, has been banned from playing video games, after being a total ass hole when his mother asked him to stop playing his PS3, here is a quote from the source:

    Racine County prosecutors charged Jeffery A. Ehlers, 17, of the 2400 block of North Newman Road, on Monday with disorderly conduct. He was charged as an adult after Mount Pleasant police were called to his home Sunday by his mother after he allegedly uttered obscenities while losing as he played a video game, according to his criminal complaint. The mother told police her son is addicted to playing video games and she asked him several times to stop playing because he becomes very angry while playing, the complaint stated.

    She said she told him she would take away his Playstation 3 if he didn’t stop, but he began yelling, calling her derogatory names and swearing at her, the complaint stated.

    When she unplugged the game, he allegedly began pushing her, became increasingly violent, began throwing things around his room and slammed the door a handful of times, the complaint stated. His mother reported Ehlers also slammed the laundry chute door plus other items around the house, according to the complaint.

    During Ehlers’ initial appearance in court Monday, Court Commissioner Alice Rudebusch gave him a $250 signature bond, and ordered him not to play any video games nor have violent contact with his mother and family.

    New updates to the latest Aldostools. These new releases bring your usual round of bug fixes and a few new features listed below:

    Bruteforce Edat 1.2.1 updated 2013-09-21!
    It’s a dev klicensee bruteforcer that can be used to find the klicensee used on edat files. It uses BuC’s dev klicensee validator to test the potential keys and the superfast JjKkYu’s EDAT dev_klic bruteforcer tool.

    New in this release: As some games may have several EDATs, each one with a different dev_klic; in this update I have added a new application to list the dev_klicensee and Content ID for each EDAT in a game folder.

    Special thanks to Catalinnc for his awesome contribution discovering the klicensees!

    PS3 Bruteforce Save Data 4.1.7 updated 2013-09-19!It’s a frontend for flatz save data tools 0.2.3. It finds the keys of several games in seconds and let you resign your saved games and trophies. A wide selection of cheats and checksums for 711 titles is also available ready to be applied to the saves.

    Features: Resign trophies or saves, preview images of trophies, direct FTP download/Upload saves or trophies from/to PS3, unlock saves/trophies to work on any PS3 account, unlock saves/trophies with FAKE account id, added support for Game Genie cheats, fixed issue with patch SFO, improved load time. Multiple saves can be resigned in a single step. Direct update of the repository of cheats from ps3cheating.net. Patch Creator 1.6.9 plugin to assist in the creation of save patches and quick access to PS3 Save Portal with several saves that only need to be resigned.

    New in 4.1.7: Added support for “(Choose one)” or “(Select one)” cheat. Fixed some parsing issues in the cheat engine introduced in the previous update.

    TIP: After you resign and replace your trophies, it is required to Rebuild Database through Recovery Menu, and launch a game that will do “Sync Trophies” on it’s startup in order to get the trophies working properly.

    Special thanks to flatz, chaoszage, skillerCMP, gingerbread, zeick, keha, SHAkA, X-GHOST-X, Zephyer, ngu-tripate, Red-EyeX32, butnut, acab, Petar, Dreamcat4 and many others

    Bruteforce EBOOT 1.3 new 2013-09-18!
    This tool is more an EXPERIMENT than a real key finder… a 128bit key is expected to take milleniums to bruteforce it, but if you are extremely LUCKY you could find a rifkey using this method. Anyway, I’m sharing this because a friend asked me to make it to have some fun.

    The tool generates random or sequential values and uses MAGIC333X’s bruteforce tool to test thousands or millions of rifkeys per second.
