I just stumbled upon a leaked version of the Gears of War 3 Work in Progress "Developers Copy" which is playable on jtagged consoles. A few people confirmed that it is in fact Gears 3 but with missing missions and also the horde mode isn't playable. I personally can't confirm that but it might be interesting for some people.

Update:
As "source" this should be enough http://www.360hacks.de/gears_of_war_3_developers_copy_leaked.t13075.html

Recently, Scene Developer SquarePusher2 has started up a blog of his to write up his various Emulator projects that he been releasing for the PS3 over the last few months. When you think of Emulator you think of SquarePusher2, they go hand and hand like Butter on nice slice of Toast!


One of the setbacks that SquarePusher2 been facing before is that he was doing all his work on Retail PS3 Console, but recently he been able to arrange to get a TEST PS3 shipped to him, and he has already gotten an 360 XDK, and been able to get help from other developers like Themaister, Halsafar, Lantus to work with him on his new blog.

This going to be the team to follow over the next few months, to see how amazing the various Emulators get improved for all PS3 Owners, Squarepusher2 has already done an amazing job with his ports bringing...

Jordandyckes from Pixolia Solutions, Ltd. has released another new version of his famous PSN Download Manager! If you are one of those that love grabbing everything from PSN Store you will find that the PS3 is slow when downloading online content even if you have big fast internet connection it can take alot of time. This is where PSN Download Manager steps in, it runs on your PC and acts like a middle-man, detects what you want to download and makes it go much faster by accessing the network more then once, to get multiple streams going.

PS3 Scene Developer Andreas has recently release a stop-gap bug-killing version of his wonderful Showtime - Home Theater System package, before the big up-coming v3.0 series of releases. This version adds still even more features, but he is hard at work on v3.0 series which he promises will even be more amazing!

Krack3n has decided to share with the PS3 world, his personal collection of all the Sony firmware releases from before even the original launch date up to the most recent of v3.66 firmware. One of the reasons for this, is because Sony has recently removed all access to older firmware releases from their websites, including even the development networks, so those wishing to update to only a certain version to explore unpatched exploits, or not to lose their OtherOS features, are stuck to use resources that Krack3n has been nice enough to spend countless thankless hours collecting all the various different releases.

The twitter been going like mad over the last 24 hours, after Gitbrew the hosting site for many of the current PS3 open-source projects, let the cat out of the bag that they were working on a possible v3.56+ exploit for those stuck at the newer PS3 stock firmwares with no access to the wonderful growing library of homebrew that is now available to the PS3 Jailbreak'ers using v3.55 custom firmwares.



Boy, what a time for my landline internet to go down, and my phone to get stolen, it make me late in posting all the super new news coming down the pipeline, so I have to give credit to PS3HAX.net for the above wonderful pictures I used in this story. -- Sorry guys!

Was this all due to the recent QA Flag tools being finally released, or is this something new? -- Noone knows, as...

After a month of Geohot being MIA on the 'net, following his settlement with Sony and their lawsuit against him after releasing his famous Keys Open Doors. George Hotz seems to have surfaced on Facebook and is possibly working for them.

Hotz was originally sued over the release of the Playstation 3 master keys, cracking the console wide open much like he did with the iPhone that got him tons of press coverage.

But instead of one of big 3 gaming companies grabbing his brain to make their products more secure, he was all long being courted by Mark Zuckerberg, and today we find out the truth for sure, he is now one of the hired guns over at Facebook!

There been alot of changes recently in the PS3 Scene World. With sites selling out, or merging with others. Even myself been having a few different offers knocking on my crunch door recently.

You might have noticed recently the lack of new news, I been finding it vey hard to maintain and upkeep the original WordPress system, that "Dukio" was using for the original PS3 Crunch news.

And I had alot of requests for me to make this little crunching site of mine into full blown community site with open forums for various discussions for all the in-depth coverage of the PS3 Scene World!


To that end I been working slowly getting everything into shape, even tho I had originally purchased an XenForo forum license, it just not really the best forum platform yet for running active site, so I look around for some help, and found some good friends one of them got me a Vbulletin...

A class action lawsuit filed this week alleges that Sony laid off security staff and failed to respond to smaller attacks in the run up to attacks on the PlayStation Network and the Sony Online Entertainment Network.

According to Reuters, the lawsuit cites a confidential witness and says employees from Sony Online Entertainment's Network Operations centre, which is responsible for preventing and handling attacks on data, were let go.

The lawsuit also argues that the same precautions used to safeguard company data, like firewalls, were not applied to customer data. The suit was filed on Monday, and Sony has yet to comment on the case. Around 77 million PlayStation Network and Qriocity accounts were compromised by the attacks, as well as the data of 25 million users of the Sony Online Entertainment PC games network.
