    Sony released Vib Ribbon (in NA, Europe to be launched this month as well), an old original Playstation classic for PS3 and Vita. The original game was never released in North America, being this a debut on the continent.

    For those of you unfamiliar with such game, Vib Ribbon is a rythm-action game, from the developers of PaRappa the Rapper that featured a vibrant retro-like style and turned any music CD into a set of unique levels. It was the first of its kind but the concept was re-used later on in other known games such as Audiosurf.

    Though it is released as a PSOne Classic, the game mantains the capabity of reading external music or audio.

    It is also planned to be released to Playstation 4 as well.

    Now, the reason this is labeled as RUMOR is because it seems Amazon will directly stop selling the Kinect bundle still valued at $500, however, you can still buy it from 3rd party retailers within Amazon. Or you could buy it elsewhere as thia is only an Amazon thing for now, though some believe the little interest will result in an overall stop on the sale of the Kinect bundles worldwide, but this is just speculation for now. However I do want to reiterate this as rumor as Amazon could simply just be out on stock, though how that’s possible so close to the holidays remains a mystery if that was the case.

    The original author notes:

    Microsoft dropped the mandatory $500 price tag for the Xbox One along with the required Kinect back in June, and then started selling the console separately for $399 instead of $499. There were no plans to cancel the Kinect bundle, so this news from Amazon comes as a sort of surprise.

    I think Amazon made the decision to drop that particular Xbox One SKU, but that thought is simply a guess at this point.

    Developer Zecoxao was able to get running various BD-J homebrew on PS4. Most assumed that it should work but nobody was sure 100%. Yes we can now run some homebrew on PS4 but don’t expect this as a major breakthrough. This was also done on PS3 prior to its first jailbreak.

    quote via PlayStationHax
    This should not come as a shock that it actually works, but should be more of a shock that Sony didn’t find some way of blocking this method of running homebrew from being run via a burned disc.

    A few days ago zecoxao created this thread requesting that people make some BDJ homebrew, most of us assumed that it should work, but none of us knew 100% if this worked or not, until aries2k posted these two videos:

    quote by aries2k via PlayStationHax
    Unfortunately, these emulators would have to be recompiled without using the START or Select buttons since the DS4 doesnt have them. I couldn´t get most roms I tried to start on both emulators. Also no sound yet with BD-J homebrew

    There´s more BD-J homebrew than I thought.
    Still I don´t think anyone made use of the network and HDD storage capabilites like with BD-Live. I´ve transfered various files from BD-Live over to the ps4s harddrive. Lol, it seems to let you use all the free space on the HDD. I´ve used BD-LIVE on another BD-Player with a usb to see what kind of files are transfered and there are some .jar files in there.
    So in theory maybe it would be possible to tranfer BD-J homebrew to the ps3s hdd and then use a BD (boot)disc to select the different homebrew on the HDD through BD-Live?

    I have reached out to the developer of the original PS3 Minimal BDJ SDK to see if he could update it, so that it accommodates the PS4 control pad, also Blu Ray Java and Java in general should be more advanced now than it was back on the PS3 and with more power on the PS4, perhaps we could now implement sound and perhaps have better homebrew.

    Here are some facts:
    This is NOT a hack.
    This is NOT anything major and will not lead to anything major.
    This will NOT let you run PS4 “backups”.
    This will NOT give you any access to the PS4’s OS system files.
    This is NOT illegal.
    This does NOT void your warranty.
    This will NOT let you run PC games on your PS4.
    This will ONLY let you run Java software.
    We all know that this isn’t any type of break through, it is using a system that is already in place, to run something that we have created ourselves, it runs from disc and does not touch any part of the PS4’s operating system, so do not expect anything huge from this.

    If anything comes from this and the SDK is updated, do expect some fun homebrew and app’s that we can use on our PS4’s.

    This method will also work on the PS3 and should work on the Xbox One, not sure about the Wii U, but we won’t know until it is tested.
