PS3 Dev Request: 2048KB of the HDD Partition Uploads!

PS3 Dev Request: 2048KB of the HDD Partition Uploads! 700°
336w ago - Update: A brief guide and F.A.Q. are available HERE and NDT posted a more detailed walkthrough.

Guys,

I need a little help from the community, if possible i'd like to have from all of you uploaded somewhere (example: rapidshare) the first 2048KB of the HDD partition. Specifically i need a test conducted this way:

Power up the ps3, go to the formatting utility, and format the ps3 HDD with the option of 10GB for the ps3 system.

Power off the ps3, remove the hard disk, attach it to the PC and dump the first 2048KB.

Compress the 2048 with the program you actually prefer (rar, zip whatever) and upload and post a link here.

For the dumping part winhex (for windows) or dd (unix and windows), if any problem or question rise, feel free to contact me or other devs, thanks again for the contribution!

Monster Hunter 3 - PS3 Transition, Monsters Reworked & More!

Monster Hunter 3 - PS3 Transition, Monsters Reworked & More! 50°
336w ago - Monster Hunter 3 is an upcoming title from Capcom that is one of the most anticipated Nintendo Wii titles within Japan.

Although announced for Japan only, with talks of it going elsewhere as well, this title wasn't always set for the Nintendo Wii but rather the Playstation 3. With the change of platforms Capcom had to rethink how it would be developing this title as the PlayStation 3 version was to be originally be built off Monster Hunter 1.

Ryozo Tsujimoto, producer of this title, revealed that with the change to Nintendo Wii they were given the opportunity to build the game from scratch which they knew would be the harder way to go but would pay off the most.

Kaname Fujioka, director of the title, has also made it known that monsters that have originally appeared in previous Monster Hunter titles will feel new and different to fans of this series as all elements of monsters have also been rehashed.

Monsters will also seem more realistic in this title as in previously in the series Monsters acted with no awareness of other monsters surrounding them but this time awareness will be at full advantage and players will be able to use this to their advantage.

Kaname Fujioka gave an example that if a larger monster was in the back and small monsters were...

Jack Thompson is now Permanently Disbarred 250°
336w ago - Is it finally game over for Florida lawyer and violent video game opponent Jack Thompson?

Judgment has been entered in the case that started last year and came to a head when Judge Dava Tunis recommended permanent disbarment for the bombastic, showboating law man. The court has approved the report and has ordered that Jack Thompson is officially disbarred as of 30 days from today.

To quote: The Court approves the corrected referee's report and John Bruce Thompson is permanently disbarred, effective thirty days from the date of this order so that respondent can close out his practice and protect the interests of existing clients.

If respondent notifies the Court in writing that he is no longer practicing and does not need the thirty days to protect existing clients, this Court will enter an order making the permanent disbarment effective immediately. Respondent shall accept no new business from the date this order is filed.

Note that Thompson still has a chance for a retrial, only due to court sanctions the motion must me submitted by a member of the Florida Bar in good standing, and I don't know that anyone wants to touch this one.

It's also worth noting that along with disbarment, Thompson has been ordered to reimburse the Florida Bar fees amounting...
