Video: Swarm Hits PlayStation Network, PSN Launch Trailer

Video: Swarm Hits PlayStation Network, PSN Launch Trailer 50°
206w ago - Hothead Games Director of Game Technology Joel DeYoung has made available a PSN launch trailer video today on Swarm which is hitting PlayStation Network soon.

To quote: We're super excited that Swarm is finally about to be released on PlayStation Network. The genesis of the original idea for the game stretches all the way back to 2006, shortly after we started Hothead.

There was an indie video game developer contest we wanted to enter, so we brainstormed a ton of ideas on what to submit. Dr. Mike Hayward, Hothead's resident Ph.D., brought forward a concept based on his doctoral research in artificial life.

He called it Swarm and it had plenty of science cred. We thought this was our contest winner, so we came up with a cute adorable character to go with his tech, the swarmite, and got to work on a prototype.

In the end we did very well in that contest, placing in the final four, winning the people's choice vote, and garnering $300,000 in winnings. Every time we wore a Swarm t-shirt in public, invariably someone would ask us about the character. People really seemed to like it. So we knew we were onto something. We just had one problem: what we created wasn't really a game.

Sony Adds PS3 Firmware 3.60 Auth on PSN, CFW Patch Incoming

Sony Adds PS3 Firmware 3.60 Auth on PSN, CFW Patch Incoming 750°
207w ago - Last week PS3 Firmware 3.60 was released, and as of today Sony has updated the platform authentication xi passphrase for PSN resulting in Custom Firmware users (via FckPSN and similar methods) being blocked, however, according to IRC reports a PlayStation 3 CFW patch update shouldn't be far off.

To quote from PSX-Scene (linked above): "We are expecting sporadic PSN maintenance from approx 9am-3pm PST Thursday 03/17/2011. We apologize for the inconvenience."

That message was the last thing that CFW users got to see today, later after the network was back up everyone found they been kicked off their PSN!

Sony has finally enabled the new v3.60 auth system which was found hiding in the new firmware they had released last week!

Finally, from IRC:

Scorpion1: the 3.60 passphrase will be the same for everyone
Scorpion1: well mathieulh said the 3.55 one is
Scorpion1: saktdlMapxsbsghmq5dhlwrmtsicyijmzntqaLcpgd8ybbetdmsha=jm
Scorpion1: and thats from his ps3 i take it
Scorpion1:...
