Hori HP3-87 PS3 Dock for Gaming on the Go


As awesome as the Sony PSP is, it just can’t match up to the gaming experience offered by the PlayStation 3. But sadly, Sony’s gaming console isn’t portable, or is it…?

Japanese peripheral company,Hori, has developed a nice-looking dock for the PlayStation 3. The HP3-87 features a 720p display and stereo sound, and lets you enjoy your favorite video-games, even when you live home. This might not match up to the  HD television you have in your home, the 1366×768 resolution is more than satisfying for an 11.6 inch display.


PS3 Gives 70MB of RAM back to the Developers

Sony PS3

When the PS3 was first launched on the market, 120MB of its 512MB RAM were used only for OS applications and that means that less than 400MB of RAM were available for game developers.

While the Xbox 360 was using just 32MB for its operating system, the designers of PS3 have tried until now to bring some updates and improvements to the console in order to reduce the amount of RAM used by the OS. Now, they finally managed to reduce the number of MB used by the operating system to 50, which means that there is an additional amount of 70MB of RAM available for game developers to use at will.

PS3 Finally Fully Hacked?


I know it sounds hard to believe, but George Hotz claims he actually managed to fully hack the Sony Playstation 3.

After 3 years, 11 months and 2 weeks of constant trying, someone has actually succeeded in hacking the PS3. Although it’s not yet official how he did it, George said it was a clever combination of hardware and software. It took him a total of 7 weeks to pull it off, but for obvious reasons George Hotz is not yet ready to reveal the exact way he did the master hacking.

There’s a lot of reversing to be done, but hopefully George’s success will lay the basis to a tool that will allow PS3 users to have more control over their machines.
