To fix some problems of the game



Capcom has confirmed that they will work on a patch to solve all the Street Fighter X Mega Man issues.

Capcom released Street Fighter X Mega Man some days ago as a FREE download, but users are reporting a lot of issues like crashes, inability to save and other problems that need to be solved.

Christian Svensson, from Capcom, said that "he’ll bring these issues up with the game’s development group, and that an update patch will be coming to address them in the future."

He also said that: "Street Fighter X Mega Man has exceeded his personal expectations of the game. Keep in mind that this is a free game, though, so expectations being exceeded in this particular case may not mean a whole lot."

So guys, expect a patch for the game soon!

Now you can install PKGs whilst drooling over Justin Bieber... if you are a bloody Belieber that is!



DeanK has developed and released a cheeky installPKG SingStar XMB Replacement Installer, which will allow CFW users that have been affected by the widely-disapproved undeletable SingStar XMB Icon issue to install the application in place of the SingStar XMB icon.

In order to install the installPKG application though, users will need to allow their PS3s to have Internet access in order to download the SingStar package, or alternatively, users will need to download an offline SingStar package and install it in order to use the package-installing application in its place.

For more information on how to use the application, read the read-me below:
