Video: PlayStation 3 - Physics Effects SDK is Demonstrated

Video: PlayStation 3 - Physics Effects SDK is Demonstrated 400°
285w ago - Last week we profiled videos of Sony's Voice Recognition and Image Enlargement in the PS3 SDK.

Today, courtesy of DigInfo.tv (linked above) we have a video demonstrating Physics Effects from the PlayStation 3 SDK below.

To quote: "At CEDEC 2009, Sony Computer Entertainment exhibited the Physics Effects SDK. The Physics Effects SDK is a physics simulation engine optimized for the Cell Broadband Engine, which is provided as part of the PlayStation 3 SDK.

Because the Physics Effects SDK is optimized for PlayStation 3, it can do physics simulations very fast, even though they are considered to impose a very high computing load.

This could expand developers' scope to include even more complex physical phenomena and mechanisms in games."

Random PlayStation 3 HDD & RAM Dumping Bug Discovered

Random PlayStation 3 HDD & RAM Dumping Bug Discovered 500°
286w ago - Today SKFU has shared a bug he found in PS3 Firmware 2.8 (although he said it should be present since 2.0 through 3.0) that allows you to dump random data from the PlayStation 3 HDD and RAM.

To quote: There's a little "bug" in the PlayStation3's NAT test which causes that you can dump random data from the HDD and RAM. Why exactly this appears; I don't know, yet. But well, it is interesting.

The way how to do it is pretty simple. Set up Wireshark on the PC and activate ICS (Internet Connection Sharing).

Connect the PS3 with the PC via LAN and start Wireshark's logging/sniffing feature on the LAN device. Now go to Settings on the PS3 and start a Internet Connection Test in the Network option.

When the PS3 starts the NAT testing it will send default STUN packets together with several IP Fragments. Those both packet types will contain random data which the PS3 grabs from the HDD and/or RAM. There you go.
