PS3 BiOS CXR713120-202GB Chip System Controller Details

PS3 BiOS CXR713120-202GB Chip System Controller Details 550°
321w ago - Here is a translation of an ongoing project from Spanish developer DemonHades (linked above) courtesy of idone, detailing the PS3 BiOS chip being pulled and starting to be traced as follows:

For some time, we have been talking about the PlayStation 3 BiOS, and up to date there is no public info about the IC which does this job and the way it stores the information.

Here is a quick briefing of what we have done so far (pictures in sequence with the below text, spread across the three images below):

Pic #1: The reference of this IC is CXR713120-202GB.

Pics #2 & #3: Thanks to KnightSolidus we have these photos with the ways of this IC and some notes of connections references with colors.

Pic #4: The PLAYSTATION 3 BIOS is also known as SYSTEM CONTROLLER (SysCon)

Pic #5: As we can see in the image, SYSTEM CONTROLLER uses an SPI interface to communicate with the CELL eeprom, on which possibly it will know how to behave. We think it *might* be something interesting to work with.

Pic #6: Using this SPI interface, we can try to cause a livelock that would get us the checkstop.

Pic #7: Here we can see the CXR SYSTEM CONTROLLER, internal diagram. We believe that the UART port...

COD 6: Hostage Multiplayer Game on Sony PS3 and XBox 360?

COD 6: Hostage Multiplayer Game on Sony PS3 and XBox 360? 100°
321w ago - We have read many ideas for Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, some about the weapons and others about the game type's in multiplayer. One of the best ideas we would like to see is a hostage online game.

You could save your hostages from the other team before they get killed or something along those lines. Maybe even have the hostages have the option to try and escape from their captors.

Another great idea in COD 6: is to have the lobby for the Sony PS3 and Xbox 360 updated, especially on the PS3. When you go to find match it would be good to have it setup like this:

Find Match - Countries - Core/Hardcore - Game Modes

Playlists for different countries or regions should be added because people would rather be playing against people from their own country and have a good connection, other than being thrown into a random match with people from another country and have a bad connection.

Would you like a hostage game type in multiplayer and a choice of countries when finding a match? Comment below!

We just wanted to let you know that we are aware of and looking into some server issues which are causing community/stats errors as well as increased latency. We are working on the issue now. Thanks for your patience and your feedback!
