PS3Load: Wiiload for PS3 - Run SELF Programs via Network
A few weeks ago AerialX started the open-source PS3 homebrew SDK PSL1GHT, and today he has Tweeted that PS3Load is available (essentially Wiiload for PS3) to run SELF programs via wireless or wired network shortly followed by a bugfix update and adding support for sending zips for apps that need data files.
Download: PS3Load for PS3 / PS3Load (PKG) for PS3 / PS3Load (and PKG) for PS3 v0.2 / PS3Load for PS3 v0.2a
To quote: "As an example I wrote a program called PS3Load.
For those familiar with Wiiload and the Homebrew Channel, PS3Load allows you to run SELF programs over your wireless or wired network!
To use it, simply run Wiiload with a .self file, and point it to your PS3's IP address.
PS3Load is included in PSL1GHT's samples, but I've also attached a precompiled self for running directly from app_home (package coming soon).
For the ultimate fun, ps3load ps3load into ps3load so you can ps3load while you ps3load."

wow look good, will try it thanks for it!
i'm soo lost... what is this?? we can play wii games on the PS3?
ok so if we get a .elf file from a wii game will it work?
No - what it is - being able to load SELF files (Executable files in PS3 format) via a Networked PC without having to transfer it first to the PS3.
WiiLoad is the same thing for the Nintendo Wii - this just does the same but for PS3!
Do what Chuck?
Exciting news, this way we will run game managers and other homebrews via network in the near future, maybe games too!
I have added the PKG file to the first post as well now.
Nice to see that not only Sony is porting Wii stuff to the PS3
This means you can use PS3 programs through your network without installing it on the ps3. NO WII STUFF ON PS3... at least not yet, maybe in the future with some sort of emulator.
But why would I want to load a game manager from the network?
