[Release]{Sort of} psnstuff v3.0.0.0

Well i know not everyone is still interested in the ps3 scene and so on 

 

but i had a look and ive been using @eminem451 @slimshady451 ‘s psnstuff which he took over since it was made open source

i have however had a few issues with it like when it downloads a newer version of the application it makes a new folder every time and it gets annoying to move them to the main folder every time 

so i have created my version of psnstuff from v3.0.0.0 by @Lozers 

 

and have created a Download Helper which will replace the new exe with the old one this is purely for developers and the source code is as always available on my github 

 

so here is the link to the source on my github

a bit more of what ive added 

 

ive added a settings window just to allow the user to select where to save the downloads 

 

by default it will save them in MyDocumentsPSNStuffDownloads

else the user can select where to save it 

 

the download helper will be in the same folder as the executable 

 

this is purely some code to help out @eminem451 @slimshady451 with future development on psnstuff 

 

also something i have added is to copy the data from downloads directly to a usb for easy access to the users (kind of like noob proofing)

NX Confirmed And Other Nintendo News

Today Nintendo officially confirmed the release of the Nintendo NX, we will see a worldwide release during March 2017

 

 

Whilst that is awesome news, they also revealed that the new Zelda game will be delayed until next year and that it will be released on both the Wii U and NX, here is hoping it is a release title for the NX

 

On to other news related to Nintendo, they announced this morning that two of their popular titles, Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing will be coming to mobile devices, what wasn’t made clear is if they will be full blown games such as those on the 3DS or just small app’s, personally i would like to see an Animal Crossing for the Wii U or NX, i want to be able to play it on my TV, just like one could on their Gamecube or Wii

 


Thieves Steal Copies Of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is not officially due to be released for another ten days or so, but yesterday Twitter was filled with images of the game having broke the street date in the UK, with one story having the owner of the game explain how he bought it in CEX, CEX is a UK store, where you take stuff you no longer want and sell it or exchange it for money of an item in the store, nothing from my understanding is new, which makes it weird that someone was able to buy a brand new, unreleased game from them.

  You can read the CEX story here, which has also been updated with a story of how another gamer bought a sealed copy off ebay.

There have also have been stories of customers receiving the game early from retail giants such as Amazon and then there is an article Sony just published on their official blog, which reads:

Quote

 

We have some unfortunate news to report that a number of copies of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End were stolen while in transit. While we are continuing to work with the police to resolve the matter – which is the subject of an ongoing criminal investigation – it appears that a few copies of the game have surfaced in the UK.

 

We know that very many of you have been looking forward with great anticipation and excitement to the latest masterpiece from Naughty Dog. From what I have played of Nathan Drake’s latest adventure, I can tell you that it is very much worth the wait. As with most Naughty Dog games, the unfolding story is such an integral part of the experience and for this reason we wanted to warn you to beware of the potential for spoilers to be posted by people with access to stolen copies of the game. An extremely talented team has worked long and hard to bring Nathan Drake’s greatest adventure to life and we would urge you to help us prevent this from being spoilt by purchasing copies of the game ahead of the launch date. Please rest assured we will be very vigilant to protect you from this as far as we can so you can enjoy Uncharted 4’s experience to its fullest on May 10th.

 

 


Should Scene Sites Charge For Hacking Consoles ?

Now my article will not be as awesome as @wololo‘s article that you can read here, it will be short and have the poll to accompany it.

 

Now if you wonder what the issue is, then i will explain…

 

Last week @BobbyBlunt brought to my attention that @Hackinformer had a service in which he was installing themes and the ability to play homebrew via ePSP for a fee, you can read more about it here.

 

These are the services that he charges for:

Now why do i have a problem with this ?

1.)

Hackinformer runs a scene site, everything he gets for his website he gets for free, the information to write articles for free, the homebrew and applications to write about for free, so charging for what he gets for free is wrong, on top of that, as i said, he runs a scene site, scene sites have always been about helping people, posting tutorials and guides as well as giving help in threads where people are looking for help, they have never been about selling services and they never should be.

 

2.)

The whole way it is done is sleazy and disgusting, from this deceiving pinned tweet:

Hrbd4P8.png

 

To the fact once you click that link, you are greeted with a login screen that forces you to register in order to see the article and once you register, you assume you are going to get a guide or help on how to do everything that is said in the tweet, but no, you are greeted with a a thread explaining you must pay to get all this done, the deceiving and dishonesty i find more disgusting than the actual selling of a service.

 

3.)

Hackinformers service involves installing all this on a Vita with 3.60 firmware, so how is this method done ?, what is he doing and why is he not providing other the information on how to do it themselves ?, its obvious, he is keeping it all to himself in order to profit from the scene.

 

4.)

Hackinformer isn’t some guy that does this for some spare cash at the weekend, he is someone who runs one of the biggest scene sites out there and as i said scene sites are there to help people, not get them to pay for the installation of homebrew.

 

 

Now i am sure i could say more on the subject, but there is no point, i have had enough hours wasted arguing about it and had personal information posted on Twitter over it.

 

For those interested, the personal information that was posted was my IP, now if some person from IRC did something like that, or one of the staff members form here did it, they would be cunts but it would be no big deal at the end of the day, as i put them in the position of seeing my IP…, but the person who posted my IP online @turkreno runs a company in which he sells server space for people to host their websites.

 

Now how did turkreno get such information and why did he post it ?

Whenever the server was hacked back at the beginning of this year, i asked turkreno for advice, he asked me to give him the servers details so he could look at the problem, this with my trusting nature did, he seen i had problems, then we talked about moving my website to his servers, which is what happened, but that’s where everything started to go bad, he started disabling plugins on the WordPress sites, then he seen attacks happening on the server he had hosted my site on, so he got scared and put my websites back on the old host, but i thought, cool he managed to clean the shit up and he even installed a firewall for me, i was very thankful, but then i realised that the forum was fucked up, whatever he did, meant the entire software had to be reinstalled, then after a while i realised that the server was not clean from infection after all and i ended up finding and getting rid of two shells and a spam bot service embedded into a legit file, so that is the reason he had the information, now as to why.

 

Well after i sent Hackinformer a tweet, saying i disagreed with what he was doing, turkreno brought it upon himself to white knight  for Hackinformer and what i though started of as a simple discussion soon turned into an argument and after i called turkreno out for his shitty workmanship, he posted my IP, the IP he had gotten in confidence and private online, telling anyone who was following him to block my IP and the IP range, so he did it out of childish spite, which shows he and his web hosting is not to be trusted.

 

Something else to think about, if he held onto my IP for that long, perhaps he has also held onto the database, which means he is also in possession of all your IP’s, email address’s and passwords which makes him just as dangerous as someone who hacked the server and stole the database. 


Nintendo Humble Bundle

Nintendo did a Humble Bundle last year, but it was for USA only, this time its for EU and South Africa, here is what you get:

3DS

  • Retro City Rampage: Nintendo 3DS Theme
  • Retro City Rampage: DX
  • Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse
  • Rhythm Thief & the Emperor’s Treasure
  • Citizens of Earth
  • Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition

 

Wii U

  • Affordable Space Adventures
  • Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse
  • Freedom Planet
  • Darksiders II

 

You can get it here

 

 

EDIT

Seems what is shown is region based, for me it shows that the titles can only be redeemed on EU/SA consoles, but people in USA are telling me that everything is fine with them and they can redeem too.
