Remember back in 2006(2007 UK), when you bought your brand new PS3, not only could you play games and watch Blu Ray’s, you could also install Linux, then when Sony released a newer model PS3, they said it wouldn’t include the OtherOS ability, but stated that owners of consoles that had the feature wouldn’t be affected and that they wouldn’t be removing Linux from those models, but they went ahead in 2010 and released an update which nuked the OtherOS option on ALL PS3‘s.
Well they were sued and rightfully so, several of the cases got combined into one and the case continued, until recently, when Sony decided that they will give those who had OtherOS installed $55 or $9 if you bought your PS3 because of the advertised OtherOS features, there is a small clause though, you have to prove you own a PS3 and prove that you actually had OtherOS installed, here are the important bits from the court document:

Koei Tecmo have released a second trailer for their upcoming game Dynasty Warriors: Eiketsuden, it still does not have a western name, perhaps they will just call it Dynasty Tactics 3 ?
Well there is no doubt that Sony kicked ass at last nights E3, yes Microsoft showed hardware upgrades, but they did not show many games and after all as gamers, that is what we care about and this is where Sony shone, from the live orchestra to the none stop reel of games, this years PlayStation conference is probably the best i have seen in a long time, if you didn’t see it the live show, you can grab a look at the videos below, with info below the title of the game and the source in the title itself:
Set in the beautiful, volcanic scarred high-desert of the Pacific Northwest, Days Gone is an open-world action-adventure game where you play as Deacon St. John, a Drifter and bounty hunter who would rather risk the dangers of the broken road than live in one of the “safe” wilderness encampments.
The game takes place two years after a global pandemic has killed almost everyone, but transformed millions of others into what survivors call Freakers – mindless, feral creatures, more animal than human but very much alive and quickly evolving. In the demo you saw two types of Freaks – Newts, which were adolescents when infected, are opportunistic hunters, preferring to hit and run from the shadows; and a Horde. Made up of hundreds of individual Freakers, Hordes eat, move and attack together, almost as one. Some Hordes roam the highways at night, while others, like the one in the demo, have found a food source that keeps it in a single location. Skills learned in his prior life as an outlaw biker have given Deacon a slight edge in the seemingly never-ending fight to stay alive. But will it be enough?
The Last Guardian
The Last Guardian, known in Japan as Hitokui no Ōwashi Trico (人喰いの大鷲トリコ Hitokui no Ōwashi Toriko?, literally “Trico, the man-eating eagle”) and previously referred to by the working title Project Trico, is an upcoming video game developed by genDESIGN and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment for the PlayStation 4. The game is being designed and directed by Fumito Ueda, and is expected to share stylistic, thematic, and gameplay elements with his previous games, Ico and Shadow of the Colossus.
The game involves a young boy who befriends a giant hybrid creature, Trico, and the two work together to evade guards that are after them both. The game requires the player, controlling the boy, to manipulate Trico like a real animal, such as luring it with food, as to use the creature as a means to climb and reach high platforms or other remote places. This sets the core of the game on puzzle-based action, as in between the various puzzles the player will encounter, enemies will be encountered, potentially impeding progress. It is the player’s role to survive in such an occurrence, much like in Ico.
God Of War
I knew I didn’t want to simply reboot the franchise, starting over with a retelling of the origin story. I wanted to reimagine the gameplay, give players a fresh perspective and a new tactile experience while delving deeper into the emotional journey of Kratos to explore the compelling drama that unfolds when an immortal demigod makes a decision to change.
For Kratos, this change means breaking the cycle of violence, distrust and deception that his family, the Greek pantheon, perpetuated for so long. That cycle drove a whole host of bad decisions – the ill-fated deal with Ares, the murder of his family and a rage fueled descent into madness and vengeance that ultimately ended with the epic destruction of Olympus.
Detroit: Become Human
Inspired by our short called “Kara” back in 2012, Detroit is a neo-noir thriller set in the near-future city of Detroit. Androids, who look exactly like human beings, have replaced humans in most tasks: they are workers, babysitters, gardeners, nurses, teachers, clerks.
The story of Detroit starts with an unexplained incident that begins to affect the Androids. Some disappear without any explanation, others have unexpected behaviors and strangely show signs of emotions. The rumours of “deviant” androids start spreading, but no one seems to know what’s really happening…
Developed exclusively for play in PlayStation VR, Farpoint is an unnerving space adventure set on a hostile alien world. After crash landing you have to fight to survive as you explore and uncover the planet’s secrets. Your only hope of escape is to keep moving and discover the fate of your team.
Resident Evil 7 Biohazard
While Resident Evil 7 draws from the series’ roots of atmospheric survival horror, it also delivers a whole new level of terror. In the classic Resident Evil games of yesteryear, players braced for fear in the first-person via the creepy door-opening scenes, and Resident Evil 7 ramps up that tension with an immersive first-person view and a photorealistic graphical style.
Of course, a horror story is only as frightening as its setting, and Resident Evil 7 pays tribute to the franchise’s origins on this front as well. Resident Evil 7 is set after the events of Resident Evil 6, taking place in modern day and revolving around a foreboding, derelict plantation mansion in rural America. Players must explore and survive the horrors within the mysterious, sprawling estate.
Batman Arkham VR
One of the things that Arkham fans have been asking for is the opportunity to explore some of the most iconic locations in Batman’s universe such as Wayne Manor and the Batcave. For the first time in a Rocksteady Arkham story, Batman: Arkham VR offers players the chance to do exactly that – to feel that unique sense of presence in these legendary locations through virtual reality. If you’ve ever wondered how it would feel to be Bruce Wayne one moment surrounded by the finery of Wayne Manor and then descend into the Batcave to put on the iconic Batsuit, you’ll know why we’re so excited about putting the game in players’ hands.
Here They Lie
Here They Lie is a dark psychological horror experience that transports you to a terrifying, surreal world inhabited by strange and malevolent creatures. Unimaginable horrors lurk around every corner, just out of sight, haunting and infecting your mind.
Horizon Zero Dawn
In this demo, we follow Aloy as she journeys beyond the walls of her village to defeat a ‘demon’ which is terrorising locals and breeding fear throughout the valley. Aloy will have to use every ounce of her knowledge, intelligence and agility to survive this encounter.
From our first meeting, Marvel, Spider-Man and Insomniac have felt like a match made in heaven. So much so that for the first time in Insomniac’s 22-year history, we’re working on an IP that didn’t originate in-house. We love building big games, with incredible gameplay, deep stories, and beautiful graphics. Spider-Man is one of the most iconic and well-known characters in the world, and we’re thrilled to be given the responsibility to create a brand-new, authentic Spider-Man story.
Nope, this isn’t the same Spider-Man you’ve met before, nor is our game based on the upcoming movie. This is a more seasoned Peter Parker who’s more masterful at fighting big crime in New York City. At the same time, he’s struggling to balance his absurdly chaotic personal life and career. All while nine million New Yorkers depend on him for their safety… no pressure indeed.
LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens
The Niima Outpost Demo lets players relive the escape from Jakku as Rey, Finn and BB-8, showcasing all of their abilities, special combat moves, and cool weapons. It’s great watching BB-8 (literally) bowl his way through a group of First Order Stormtroopers that stand in your way.
Bound transports you into a beautiful, fantastical world that exists in the mind of a woman revisiting the memories of her childhood. You’ll use dance moves to traverse vast environments filled with platforming challenges. As the game progresses, the introspective story unfolds through powerful metaphor and imagery, adding emotional depth to the protagonist’s journey.
Final Fantasy XV
XV takes place on Eos, a world similar to modern-day Earth. All the world’s countries—bar the kingdom of Lucis—are under the dominion of the empire of Niflheim. Noctis Lucis Caelum, heir to the Lucian throne, is driven from his home when Niflheim invades Lucis on the eve of peace negotiations between the two nations. Now on the run with his companions, Noctis begins to work towards defeating the forces of Niflheim and rescuing the crystal from their control. The game features an open-world environment and action-based battle system similar to the Kingdom Hearts series and Type-0, incorporating the ability to switch weapons and other elements such as vehicle travel and camping.
* the payload you want to edit
* HxD or any other hexeditor (since i’m on windows, i prefer using this one)
* a calculator that converts decimal to hexadecimal
Find out the original IP of the payload (in my case it is 192.168.0.5)
Convert each of the numbers of the ip to hexadecimal. They’ll be, in my case, 0xC0, 0xA8, 0x00 an 0x05.
Search in HxD for those four (c0a80005) in hex search.
Replace the occurrence with your ip of choice, using the rules of Step 1 and Step 2
There should be only one ocurrence of the pattern.

So I recently fix the crash that Hunter128 made up adding a additional iframe (3.html) to the already made code qwertyoiup twitted about here https://github.com/WebKit/webkit/commit/98845d940e30529098eea7e496af02e14301c704 of course qwertyoiup was playing around with this bug, meaning he has something extra no one knows about, that he hasn’t surface yet which explains the twits below
Now for the fixed code i made up, Short version of the already made webkit here https://github.com/WebKit/webkit/commit/98845d940e30529098eea7e496af02e14301c704
<p>This tests that WebKit does not crash when frame loads are interrupted. This test passes if it does not crash.</p>
I made a website of the code working so turn on your ps4 and click on the link: http://gdriv.es/ps4webcrash350
Umm… now i know why Hunter128 has no friends
