    You may remember playing hours with this game, now it’s time for some “SNK” revival. This awesome piece of art is now available on PSN.
    For *current-gen* and *next-gen*.

    Developer ‘Joonie’ has released his homebrew collections supporting 4.70 DEX. Additional information and download links found below:

    Here is several homebrew that I ported for upcoming REX / D-REX 4.70

    Firstly, here is IRISMAN 3.46 [approved by aldostools]

    • It has several changes since 3.45 version.
    • Updated Payload for 4.70 CEX
    • 4.70 DEX support including MAMBA
    •  Fixed fan controller payload, 
    • [however, it still has old audio glitching bug when using payload mode since the official IRIS, I personally recommend webMAN instead] 
    • Korean language support
    • Fixed auto button swap, all previous IRISMAN used to execute read_settings() before read_from_registry();, which explains why it was not working properly without changing ini file, now it properly detects region setting from registry, and apply that “buttonAssign” setting to IRIS without changing setting.ini, this should make all Asian users happier :) Thanks again aldostools for tips

    PSN Patch developer KW has released a new update. Basically, he has included a document/FAQ which must be read by the user in order to use the patch. Any questions asked by users covered within the document/faq will not be answered by him. This update was released in sheer frustration due to individuals not reading before performing a task/asking questions. Additional information can be found below:

    Do you have any questions about PSNPATCH?

    Read this document and the FAQs before asking! Most questions are already answered there.

    No support will be given for questions already covered in the documentation!

    What is PSNpatch ?

    CORE (compatible with ALL 4.XX firmwares):
    - Spoofs IDPS (console ID) and PSID;
    - Disables cfw syscalls (emulates official firmware);
    - Auto-Deletes game and homebrew launch history;
    - BLOCKS PSN access until cfw syscalls are disabled;
    - Installs RAPs and EDATs.
    - Unlocks PSN (c00) game demos.
    - Unlocks ps2classics launcher.
    - It Patches new games to run in lower firmware (4.46) systems - both ISO and folder formats;
    - PSNPatch plug-in for easy usage with COBRA and NON-COBRA cfw including PSN access control;
    - Includes webMAN plug-in installation and XMB configuration.

    COBRA (for 4.46 and above firmwares running cobra 7.XX):
    - Cobra extensions (with stealth extensions for even better cfw disabling in COBRA systems);
    - Special processing for CFW disabling in REBUG;
    - Spoofs firmware version to ANY version (*) - temporary disabled.

    RELEASE NOTES:

    4.70.06 22/MAR/2015
    Small “user friendly” update:

    • “Unlock PSN access when disabling CFW” is extended from “plugin-only” to both application and plugin (NOTE a)
    • Several performance improvements;
    • README and FAQ files updated: READ !

    NOTES:

    • This will help users having difficulties accessing PSNPatch documentation - where it was explained that the plugin must (should) be used for this.
    • You must read this document BEFORE USING PSNPATCH - no support will be given for questions already covered in this document or in the FAQ list.

    4.70.05 15/MAR/2015

    • psnpatch plugin updated to faster start-up (when locking psn access);
    • non-cobra plugin-manager updated: faster, safer, smaller and firmware independent (4.XX CEX past and future);
    • psnpatch deletes app_home from xmb in cobra but NOT in non-cobra (needed for discless start);
    • source code updated.
    • psnpatch pkg file was optimized once again: un-install psnpatch and reinstall new version to benefict from the small size.

    NOTE I:

    • It has always been a major objective of psnpatch to be made firmware version independent.
    • This will garantee that once a new firmware is released, we wouldn’t need to wait for KW to release a new psnpatch version as the one already available would be compatible.
    • Almost everything was made this way: From the CFW disabling, to the IDPS spoofing, passing trough plugin compatibility or rap installs.
    • The plugin manager for non-cobra WAS not YET like this: A payload for every firmware version was needed.
    • With the new changes NOW included in 4.70.05,
    • PSNPatch will “patch” the payload to the currently running firmware version, hopefully making it “firmware independent” as all the other functions.

    NOTE II:

    • Some users asked for a ISO loading in non-cobra.
    • This is not impossible, in fact, loading MAMBA for the job at start-up is easy and works.
    • But, it does not make sense in psnpatch scope:
    • Plugin loading in non-cobra firmwares opens the door for non-cobra firmwares to load plugins at boot,
    • like psnpatch plugin (for things like auto block psn and disable cfw from XMB)
    • or even a lightweight version of webman to load folder format games.
    • From here, plugins developers can do whatever they fit appropriate.
    • In my opinion, what is offered for non-cobra is already very nice.
    • When we want ISO, NET loading, PS3MAPI, and whatever more we can get from cobra … we go for cobra

    4.70.02 3/MAR/2015
    BIG news for non-cobra cfw !

    • Added auto-boot PLUGINS FOR NON-COBRA CFW !!!
    • New psnpatch plugin updated to fully run in BOTH COBRA and NON-COBRA;
    • Included webman-mod plugin for both cobra and non-cobra modes;
    • “Block PSN Access” now works for BOTH COBRA and NON-COBRA at boot time;
      (providing the psnpatch plugin is installed - wait for psnpatch welcome message).
    • IDPS auto-spoofing now works for BOTH COBRA and NON-COBRA at boot time;
      (providing the psnpatch plugin is installed - wait for psnpatch welcome message).
    • Confirmed compatibility with 4.70 CFW
      (this is just a confirmation as no code changes were needed);

    NOTES for non-cobra plugins:

    • Non-cobra plugins should be configured in /dev_hdd0/prx_plugins.txt;
    • (psnpatch does this automatically when installing psnpatch or webman plugins);
    • Non-cobra plugins can mount games only in jailbreak format;
    • ISO support for non-cobra is comming
    • When in non-cobra CFW: go to new “TOOLBOX” menu in PSNPatch app to configure plugins;
    • Non-cobra plugins were tested just in 4.70, but it should be compatible with several previous CFW versions;
    • Many failsafe procedures were taken in consideration to install the non-cobra plugin handler.
    • In the event of something going wrong (a broken plugin or an error installing the plugin handler),
    • there are 2 EASY failsafe procedures:
    • 1) Create a “failsafe” file and place it in a folder named “core_flags” in a usb stick in the right usb port of the ps3.This procedure can also be done to disable plugin loading from non-cobra cfw.
    • 2) Re-install the CFW from the Recovery menu.

    Aldo Vargas has updated webMAN MOD following the recent webMAN 1.41 release from deank.

    If you don’t know yet, webMAN MOD is a fork of deank’s webMAN, by M@tsumot0 & aldostools. It follows webMAN’s releases but adds several additional features. Among said features are 23 additional translations by default, that use modular LANG_XX.TXT language files so you may modify them or add more yourself. Including but not limited to XMB/In-Game Pad Shortcuts that disable CFW syscalls; gameDATA; toggle Offline Mode; toggle PS2 emu, Cobra, & Rebug/Toolbox Features; and to Unmount games.

    WebMAN MOD has also gotten a few new features recently, such as; The ability to Auto-Fix games; _NzV_’s PS3 Manager API; Support for Scalable Vector Graphics (.svg) images; and webchat. Subfolder scanning was improved with 1.41.08, which can no doubt ease organization on your hdd (such as PSX bin/cue/jpg within subdirectories of any name). A new “slider” interface was added (Since 1.41.20) with mobile devices in mind. Along with the ability to (Since 1.41.32) now scan SD/MS/CF cards on old fat PS3s if the cards are inserted upon boot, webMAN-MOD now (1.41.36) redirects the PS3_UPDATE directory (if it exists) when mounting backups to prevent accidental updates to OFW.

    Like it’s mother, webMAN MOD also has multiple plugin builds with varying features that you can choose to use. Should you not need support for extra languages you can slightly reduce webMAN MOD’s memory footprint by specifying the path to “webftp_server_english.sprx” in your /dev_hdd0/boot_plugins.txt file. If you don’t intend to use features like PS3netsrv you may further reduce it’s size by using “webftp_server_lite.sprx” like with deank’s Official webMAN. Alternatively if you want to use PS3MAPI, webchat, noncobra, or REBUG you may use their respective .sprx plugins instead. If you used the installer/updater.pkg, these plugins are located at /dev_hdd0/game/UPDWEBMOD/USRDIR/, however if you choose to install webMAN MOD manually, everything you should need will be found within “webMAN_MOD_1.41.xx.rar” at webMAN_MOD_1.41.xx/updater/pkgfiles/USRDIR/. Also contained within “webMAN_MOD_1.41.xx.rar” are the latest prepNTFS for webMAN-MOD and prxloader 1.09U mod by _NzV_.

    As you’re all probably aware by now, Our Former Administrator has recently stepped down after nearly a decade. A lot can happen in a decade. For instance the construction of a tiny forum devoted to bringing together a few people interested in doing more with their PS3s. Or the growth of that little watering hole into a massive ocean of hundreds and thousands of people from all around the world, spreading outward and even connecting with other like-minded groups. Becoming a part of a massive community of sites and people that are all symbiotically involved with one another.

    It’s pretty impressive when you give it some thought. Yet sadly, In a decade you can also make a few enemies. However a man without enemies is without character. You see, If anyone, especially your enemy, finds you important enough to devote their time to you, you’ve obviously done something substantial enough to merit their attention. I think that’s quite impressive as well.

    Now if you somehow weren’t aware of Pirate handing the torch over to Kingsman, you certainly couldn’t have missed the hours of spam and attacks on our forums following the announcement. Hax Network Staff earnestly apologize for any related inconvenience this has had on our users or the community. This isn’t the first time and sadly it probably won’t be the last time it’s attempted. Though with our recent server upgrades and forum changes as we’ve been transitioning and evolving into the future, this time we were unable to immediately quell the bombardment as we have in the past.

    I assure you that the matter is being handled, and traditional forum operation will be restored as soon as possible. It is regrettable that due to the actions of others we have to ask this, but please be patient with us while the disruption is resolved.

    Its been a long 8-years, and the age of the PS3 has come and gone and a new era of consoles has begun. It has been a great journey over the years, but unfortunately it is time for me to move on…and this is my official resignation.

    PS3Hax has been a wonderful community, and knowledge hub for many people throughout the years for their consoles. However, with the growing demands of the site, I no longer have the time to properly manage and give the attention to PS3Hax to allow it to grow and prosper.

    PS3Hax needs a fresh new start, and it has been way past due to hand over the torch. Starting now, Kingsman - someone I know personally, will be taking over my responsibilities  at Hax (leading, managing, etc…).  SimonW will be taking over the technical lead at Hax, and will be responsible for most of the site improvements, repairs etc.

    Thanks to everyone that is with - or not with us, any more, throughout the years. It was a wonderful time, and will be forever missed and remember. I wish good luck to the new management, and current Hax staff team, and hopes Hax will continue to prosper for many more years to come.

    Good bye.

    Developer ‘Enstone’ of ControlConsoleAPI (CCAPI) has released a small update which gives support for 4.70 CEX cobra/non-cobra. For those unaware of CCAPI, it’s a software that establishes a connection between your PS3 and a PC- ultimately, allowing you to control the PS3 from your PC. Some functions include:

    • Debug non-fself & fself in real time
    • Real time memory edit on CEX/DEX
    • Wire(less) connection
    • Module loading
    • Modify idps and psid
    • Edit Console Leds
    • Ring Console Buzzer
    • PS3 Temperature

    Additional information:

    Compatible firmwares:

    CFW 4.21,4.30,4.40,4.41,4.46,4.50,4.53,4.55,4.60,4.65 CEX or DEX + 4.66 CEX + 4.70 CEX
    Cobra/Non-Cobra

    VSH module loading:

    Create a directory in your /dev_usb000/ called plugins and put all your sprx plugins into, it should be
    /dev_usb000/plugins/prx_name1.sprx
    /dev_usb000/plugins/prx_name2.sprx

    All of the sprx that are present in this folder, will be loaded at PS3 boot.
    Important: If some games refuse to work, just don’t use plugins (delete plugins folder from /dev_usb000)

    How to install CCAPI?

    Just download and run the CCAPI pkg on your PS3.
    It will tell you to reboot, and it’s done. You only need to do this once.

    (2015-03-19) [UPDATE]
    Habib showed up with another update today. This time he’s fixed some issues with the built-in PS3MAPI and he has dropped the COBRA 7.10 source code on us.

    (2015-03-13)
    When Smhabib released his 4.70 CFW V1.00 two weeks ago, the biggest question on everyone’s mind was “Where’s COBRA?”. Well here it is, COBRA 7.10 even. Habib stopped in a few hours ago and released HABIB 4.70 CFW v1.00 with COBRA 7.10 while he was at Starbucks. Clearly the poor guy was distraught and looking for those beautiful girls the rest of you falsely promised him. Anyway, apparently he’s decided to codename this release “STARBUCKS” as a result. A lot of work has recently gone into making COBRA 7.10 from several developers including Joonie, Aldostools, and Smhabib himself.

    11. NOT ADDED - NO BT/BD PATCHES

    CHANGELOG for 1.01:

    2.FIXED PS3MAPI FW DETECTION

    Changes to COBRA 7.10 since 7.03:

    A reddit user called *kadjar* posted that his account got hacked. He contacted Sony Support just to gave him two options.

    1) $450 fraudulent charges and deactivate his account for 6 months.
    2) Dispute the charges with his bank and have his account banned forever.

    My account got hacked, running up over $600 in charges. Here’s the conclusion after running through the Sony support gauntlet.

    • They can only refund up to $150.
    • I can dispute the charges with my bank, but that will result in my account being banned.
    • I cannot unban my account, and will thus lose my purchases (“but you only have the Last of Us and some of our free games, so it’s not a big deal”)
    • Whomever hacked my account deactivated my PS4, and activated their own. Customer support will only permit one activation every 6 months. I’m locked out of logging into my own account on my PS4 for six months.

    *Kadjar* started to recieve emails about purchases he didn’t do up to $600. Also in his reddit page there are several updates about him contacting Sony Support over and over again with no possitive response from them.
    Problem is they will refund only $150, he can’t unban his account so he will lost most (or everything) he purchased so far plus being locked to use his own account.

    Here is the full transcript of his post:

    “This morning, I started receiving emails indicating a number of purchases on my PSN account. As the transactions came in, one-by-one, it became immediately clear that my account had been hacked. I immediately logged into PSN and removed my card from the account, changed my email and password, and simultaneously launched support chats with both Sony and my bank.

    “The Sony representative told me that they are only permitted to refund transactions of up to $150. He also informed me that I could dispute the charges with my bank, but by doing so, my account would be banned from PSN. As a result, I would permanently lose all of my purchases, including the Last of Us Remastered.

    “He also informed me that my existing PS4 had been deactivated from the network this morning, and that a new one had been activated. When I asked him to deactivate that new, mystery PS4, he said he could not. I then turned on my PS4, logged in with my new credentials, and attempted to activate my PS4 with my account, but it informed me that I could not activate it as long as there was another PS4 bound to my account.

    “I called customer support, hoping for some clarification. The agent informed me that there is indeed a refund investigation underway, but that it will be limited to $150, and that it would be credited to my PSN wallet, not my bank account.

    “Furthermore, my account will not be able to activate a new system for 6 months, per Sony policy. I’m completely locked out of my own account until that date. I then asked about what would happen if I got my bank to reverse the charges, and he informed me that it would result in a banned account. I asked if there would be any way to restore my purchases, and he told me that there would not be, but I ‘only have the Last of Us and a couple of the monthly free deal games,’ so it’s not a big deal.”

    Several Reddit users have offered Kadjar copies of their games, which he has thanked them for, but declined.

    Maybe is time for Sony to review their policies.

    If you like RPG games, then Lost Dimension maybe is the game you are looking for.
    Atlus confirmed they will release in digital and physical format, only in EU and the US.

    Lost Dimension (ロストディメンション?) is a 2014 video game developed by Lancarse for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. It is a role-playing video game with visual novel-like elements, where the choices of the player determine the fate of the game’s story, as well as its characters. The game’s protagonist is 18 year-old Sho Kasugai, a member of S.E.A.L.E.D., an organisation tasked with stopping a mysterious man named “The End”, who wants to destroy the world.

    Titanfall 2 is in development and it is not gonna stay away from PlayStation this time. Respawn founder and CEO Vince Zampella has confirmed to ign .

    “I guess EA announced a sequel, so I could play coy and pretend I don’t know anything about it, or… yeah. So we’re working on a sequel. No official name yet, but we’re working on that. That’s the main focus but we’re starting up a second team and doing some smaller stuff too. Small, exploratory, taking it slow! It’ll be multiplatform.”

    And When asked about including Single Player in the upcoming sequel, this is what he said.

    “I wouldn’t have done it differently,” Zampella said when reflecting upon the original’s multiplayer-only approach. “We set out to do it and it was one of our goals. I mean it obviously prohibits a certain group of people playing the game, and as content creators you want to get into as many peoples’s hands as possible. We put some single-player elements in there though, and tried to mix it up. Maybe we could have mixed things up a bit better because some people blew right by it and didn’t even see it because there was so much action happening around it. It’s tough, because if you hit people over the head with it it becomes intrusive, and there are people who don’t want or care about it. Where does the needle fall? I think it takes a while to figure that out and we haven’t figured it out yet.”

    They are also gonna change the DLC model in the upcoming sequel and are talking about releasing some maps for free.

    “I think that’s a fantastic way to do it,” he said. “I think having the maps like that in packs, it does split the community and it makes it harder for matchmaking, it’s messy. Yeah. I don’t know we won’t do it again, I can’t say that for sure, but the idea would be to do something different.”

    Looks like all the rumors about Titanfall 2 going multi platform were in fact true.

    Developer KW has released a new version of PSNPatch. The update brings very big and unique features for non cobra users. Read The Full changelog below.

    BIG news for non-cobra cfw !
    Added auto-boot PLUGINS FOR NON-COBRA CFW !!! :D
    New psnpatch plugin updated to fully run in BOTH COBRA and NON-COBRA;
    Included webman-mod plugin for both cobra and non-cobra modes;
    Block PSN Access” now works for BOTH COBRA and NON-COBRA at boot time;
    (providing the psnpatch plugin is installed - wait for psnpatch welcome message).
    IDPS auto-spoofing now works for BOTH COBRA and NON-COBRA at boot time;
    (providing the psnpatch plugin is installed - wait for psnpatch welcome message).
    Confirmed compatibility with 4.70 CFW
    (this is just a confirmation as no code changes were needed);

    = Notes for non-cobra plugins:
    1) Non-cobra plugins should be configured in /dev_hdd0/prx_plugins.txt;
    (psnpatch does this automatically when installing psnpatch or webman plugins);
    2) Non-cobra plugins can mount games only in jailbreak format;
    3) ISO support for non-cobra is comming
    4) When in non-cobra CFW: go to new “TOOLBOX” menu in PSNPatch app to configure plugins;
    5) Non-cobra plugins were tested just in 4.70, but it should be compatible with several previous CFW versions;
    6) Many failsafe procedures were taken in consideration to install the non-cobra plugin handler.
    In the event of something going wrong
    (a broken plugin or an error installing the plugin handler),
    there are 2 EASY failsafe procedures:
    a) Create a “failsafe” file and place it in a folder named “core_flags” in a usb stick in the right usb port of the ps3.
    This procedure can also be done to disable plugin loading from non-cobra cfw.
    b) Re-install the CFW from the Recovery menu.

    Sony had their doubts about Morpheus VR (Virtual reality) maybe because Oculus Rift is already there with devkits to purchase, though not fully stablished in todays market. (yet)
    Morpheus was a revelation in last year GDC, still they had doubts if just leave it as a prototype or advance in that project.

    As you may notice all VR related, specially 90′s or even earlier VR’s where massive machines and they did that work. Inmerse the user into that world with a helmet/visor heavier than Anna Nicole Smith jugss.
    So in a sense all VR related specially in how advanced technology so far is kinda risk to make a huge investment in such uncharted area.

    Sony shared some specs that are way different from the prototype from GDC.
    Let’s check them out:

    • 1) This new version features an OLED display.
    • 2) This display runs at a resolution of 1920 by RGB by 1080.
    • This pixels have green, red and blue sub-pixels which alllows for a low-persistence display.
    • 3) 120 Hz of refresh rate = Smooth videos.
    • 4) 5.7 inch screen with “almost” 100 degree field of view and 9 tracking LEDS.

    They can render games at 120 FPS ideal for VR according to Yoshida-san.

    Lucky for those who own a PS4, that the console was designed to support those 120 FPS.
    Morpheus also has a software that allows games that run at 60 FPS to change it to 120 FPS.

    Latency the big mistery is finally revealed:
    18 milliseconds, less than half of the first Morpheus hardware (prototype).
