    2. PS3 News

    Some awesome news for PS3 Owners or Playstation 3 if you prefer it that way, the PS3 is a game console i have owened from day 1, infact i still have 2 day one consoles, one working and one not, the one that hasnt has the yellow line of death and i tried getting into it and failed so gave up, the day one consoles have the PS2 innards if im not mistaken, anyway enough of my blurb, heres the news:

    It was nearly 7 years ago since we have seen a PS3 Official Firmware Exploited (3.55 being the last), which predates many PS3 models and thus why those later Slim & SuperSlim models could never install Custom Firmware (CFW) and/or Downgrade. However that could all change as a team of three have been developing a new project (4.81 OFW Exploit) called PS3Xploit. The 'Unhackable PS3 models' will be a term of the past, but the exploits not quite there yet but the possibility of a HENkaku (vita) style hack is very plausible. Currently the exploit has allowed for access to enable Flash dumps on all consoles, Then Write access to Flash, unhackables (25xx +) will not be able to write but all previous PS3 will so that means Goodbye Hardware Flashers and Hello Software Downgradrs. The team is consisting of psx-place's very own @bguerville, @esc0rtd3w and W form the team behind PS3Xploit.

    Been a while since I posted and in the downtime I finally deleted a heck of a lot of posts from the forums and removed any content that google deem offensive, so now we after a 2 year break are back in google search, not only that but I also got us redeemed by google adsense. So a clean bill with which to restart a fresh beginning.

    DCEmu UK will always be a Homebrew and Emulation and Gaming Network but also a side project of mine will be a Theme Park News Site, always loved Theme Parks and cant wait to post news and the best in vlogs.

    Hopefully ill get a few visitors back but this is really for me to get reinterested in Homebrew etc and my own view of the world.

    Thanks for Listening, I hope I don't disapoint ...

    The Nintendo Switch hasn't been out that long and already the hackers have started on this console:

    As expected after the recent Switch browser hacking mapping out sysmodules and gaining kernel access, game cartridges can now be dumped, and the scene group BigBlueBox already released a few titles. Check this forum topic for more info. Sorry for the late news post, been a bit busy lately."

    PS4 Hacking fans will love this latest item of news:

    Most of the good stuff, tools, plugins for the exploitable PlayStation 4 console firmware on v1.76 uses CTurt's original PlayGround web interface to launch them, but recently now @modz2014 has started a GITHub project page to port it over to the newer v3.x firmwares.

    For fans of WiiU Hacking heres some great news:

    dimok has posted a brief tutorial and coded Linux tools to inject WFS blocks via USB over at gbatemp.net. This is primarily for those who updated to firmware 5.5.2 by mistake and are interested in restoring HBL or haxchi on their Wii U. I have uploaded a complete pack with a save exploit here. The procedure is pretty advanced, and the tools are compiled for a Linux (32bit) system, to use on Windows (or Mac) you need to compile/port the source code yourself. This also requires an SEEPROM dump from the target console.

    2. Playstation Vita News



    A new custom firmware has been released for the PSVita this release only supports 3.60 firmware:

    HENkaku Ensō is the evolution of the HENkaku jailbreak that opened the PS Vita and PSTV to a new universe of customization and user created content. Install it once and your Vita will be permanently hacked--no need to apply it after each reboot. Just enable HENkaku, install the following vpk, launch it, and follow the on-screen instructions.

    Does this work with firmware 3.61/3.63/3.65? No.
    How do I use this "vpk"? You need to install HENkaku first. Then open up molecularShell and press "Start" to enable the FTP server. Then connect using a FTP client and copy the vpk to "ux0:/data". On your Vita, browse to "ux0:/data" and select the vpk to install it. Then you should have a new bubble in LiveArea which you can launch to install ensō.

    Two years after the release of Alan Taylor's Terminator Genisys, it looks like Arnold has made good on his "I'll be back" promise and returned in the new free to play mobile title, Terminator Genisys: Future War.

    The game, which released May 17, gives players the option to fight with the T-5000s or human resistance. After choosing which side to align yourself with, the action immediately kicks off as a tutorial walks you through the basics of building and maintaining your own base. A cursor will point you in the direction of what you want to choose while an NPC explains why the choices were made. Gradually the tasks become more complex, but it's always clear why specific tasks were done. After about five minutes, the tutorial ends and Future War finally gets a chance to shine. 

    Right away, the player is in full control of their base. Military units can be created, ammunition can be manufactured, and factories can be upgraded but the choice is up to you and it seems there are no wrong answers on how to play. For example, sometimes scavenging materials is more effective than creating them. If your army outnumbers an opponent, you're able to collect a fair amount of material without losing much. On the flipside, if you choose to build up resources with the one day of VIP access you get after starting the game (this allows you to speed up processes in the game that would normally take much longer or gave a steep discount on desired goods), you could build up your level and warehouses more quickly. This might mean you have far fewer units, but in the first day of play, there isn't much of a chance to get attacked anyway. 

    Either way, it's all up to the player's discretion, which is a nice change of pace from the handholding that many MMO strategy games (especially those on mobile) tend to bog themselves down with - one video game trait that a gamedonia article says developers should do away with. This also makes the player feel like they play a bigger role in the game at large right out of the gate. By giving full reign of the game, immersion comes that much more naturally in a style of game that prides itself on progression by way of learning.

    And thankfully the immersion doesn't stop there. Future War's art style evokes the same dark, dystopian feel that the movies strive to accomplish time and time again. Taking a brief look at the game's website shows exactly what the game has to offer, with the iconic Skynet robot staring down Arnold Schwarzenegger's T-800. Scorched deserts, shells of bombed out buildings and neon lighting combine to create the gritty world that really makes Terminator unique. 

    When the player builds up enough units and resources, they can then venture out into the online world to gain points toward the online leaderboard. This is the basic goal of the game. The player with the highest dominance is the best player in the world. But when you're the best player in the world, more people have a reason to want to take you down. This is nowhere near a foreign concept among mobile games, but developer Plarium handles the familiar leaderboard system well, dividing the top players from the top clans as well as the player's personal ranking. It's nothing special, but it gets the job done.  

    Overall, Future War is quite fun and has enough gameplay diversity and daily quests to keep things fresh for a few hours each day. Not only that, but the game runs smoothly on bootup and controls intuitively, a trait than any mobile game worth a darn is sure to have according to Forbes' formula for making a  successful mobile title. Properly managing your base for an optimal return of dominance will be what separates serious players from the casual lot, but both types of players will be equally satisfied with what the game offers them. So if you like the Terminator franchise or are interested in mobile MMOs, this game is worth a try as it's free to play.

    Terminator Genisys: Future War is exactly what a mobile game should be. It's immersive, it keeps you tasked, it's free and it gives you the option to pay money for a boost in play. If you happen to give this one a chance, you might just find a new obsession.  ...
