  1. According to a recently published patent application from Sony Interactive Entertainment America LLC, the next generation of DualShock controllers may receive a touchscreen instead of a touchpad. Although the information in the document is not entirely clear with what the company plans to do with the screen. On behalf of Sony Ryuji Nakayama, Ennin Huang and Nathan Gary invented the patent that was submitted on September 29, 2017. The submission however does not mean that Sony will actually use it, technology companies often have their ideas patented to protect innovations. Personally I find that the current touchpad doesn't offer real advantages during gaming or navigation and I often forget the controller even has one. This also seems the case with most game developers who never really embraced the use of it during gaming. It would be kinda cool though to see an interactive map on your controller during gaming, so who knows what future gaming might bring. On the other hand it probably wouldn't be feasible, a controller with such a high end touchscreen would be immensely costly. The full patent can be read as a PDF here: http://pdfpiw.uspto.gov/.piw?PageNum=0&docid=10099121&IDKey=96543379056A Via: Hardware.info / ConsoleHax.com

    [TBT] Sega Mega Drive / Genesis (II)

    The Sega Mega Drive is a 16-bit console that was released in Japan in 1988. The console was then released in the United States under a different name: Sega Genesis because of patent rights. Europe even had to wait until 1990 for it's official release, despite it's popularity with fanatical gamers. The Mega Drive is the third console of Sega and the successor of the Master System. When the console hit the European market a wide range of games was already available, especially compared with regions where the console was already released. Yet it took Sega until early in year 1990 to search for a new mascot that had to compete with Nintendo's Mario. The search ended with Sonic, a blue (same accent as the Sega Logo) hedgehog. By bundling Sonic: The Hedgehog and the Mega Drive, the company achieved a successful market share increase. A few years later in 1993 a new version of the console was produced and it was named Mega Drive II. This smaller and lighter version came equipped with a compact motherboard that was more power efficient. The headphone jack vanished much like with today smartphones, although it wasn't replaced. Technical Sheet: Processor: Motorola 68000 - 16bit Processor with a clock speed of 7.6MHz Co-Processor : Zilog Z80 - 8bit Processor with a clock speed of 3.58MHz Graphic Processor: Sega 315-5313 ASIC (Yamaha YM7101) Sound: Texas Instruments SN76489 - Yamaha YM2612 Number of colors : 64 Resolution : 320 × 240 (progressive) or 320 × 480 (interlaced) Memory: 72kB RAM and 64kB Video RAM Media: Cartridges Ports: 2 ports for controllers - Expansion port - Composite video - RGB-Video output - headphones Dimensions: 278mm x 215mm x57mm Weight: 2.08 Kilogram Over the years a large number of emulators that can play Mega Drive (Genesis) I & II roms have been released for different platforms (PC, PSP, PS3, PS Vita, ...) Most of these are available as freeware. So find yourself a good one and give Streets of Rage or Sonic: The Hedgehog a chance. Source: ConsoleHax
  3. Who doesn't know the original Nintendo Wii controllers? But who did know that these controllers were originally designed for the Nintendo GameCube? A Twitter user named @spmrp has found these rare relics on a Japanese auction website. The code name for the 'Wiimote', Nunchuck and Sensor Bar for the GameCube was Nintendo Revolution. A name that was later used for the prototype Nintendo Wii. The package was sold for around 581 Euros. The hardware needs to be connected with the console like regular GameCube controllers, but the buyer has not yet found a way for them to work. Source: Nintendo Everything Via: ConsoleHax

    Help needed with faulty ps3 bd drive (phat (nand bc))

    @Thibobo I have checked and I have a spare BD Drive (It should be working as the PS3 works fine except overheating). Let me know if changing the lens didn't help to arrange a meeting. Modelnumber: F151182926

    If that didn't help, and the controller works on another PS3 I don't know what can fix your problem.

    Pull the power cord out of your console. Then reset DualShock controller. Reconnect the power supply to your console and connect the controller via USB.
  7. Okay, the title might sound like a delayed April's Fool joke, but in reality this is a real and awesome hardware mod created by someone with the nickname Shank. Start to finish the project took him on a year and a half journey. In addition to the original Nintendo Wii the handheld makes use of two analog sticks ripped from a Nintendo 3DS, a 340x240 LCD screen, a fan and a battery. Don't expect playing sessions of a few hours though, the battery will last about fifteen minutes. Games are loaded via USB. SOURCE: BitBuilt.net VIA: ConsoleHax.com
  8. Nintendo has announced new wireless controllers for it's Switch. The controllers seem to have emerged from the eighties and are intended to play NES games on the hybrid console. The controllers are charged by connecting them to the Switch dock, but you can not use them as Joy-Cons. Presumably the controllers communicate via Bluetooth, which also means they are not wired. According to the big N the controllers are only available for customers with a paid Switch Online subscription. What this means, or how this will be determined is unclear. My best guess would be that the controllers can only be activated when using Nintendo's NES library. A set with two controllers will cost 59,99 Euro. Source: Twitter Via: ConsoleHax
  9. After installing the new Nintendo Switch system update on September 18, 2018 it will no longer be possible to unlink your Nintendo Account from a Nintendo Switch user. Also make sure your existing Nintendo Account is linked to the correct user. If you use Custom Firmware or hacks on your hybrid it's probably a good idea to unlink your Nintendo Account right now.

  10. Hardware producer Razer released two new controllers for the PlayStation 4. The sensitivity of each controller can easily be adjusted with an accompanying application. The entry-level model is named Razer Raiju Tournament and looks more like an Xbox 360 controller with some extra buttons. In terms of functionality both are comparable with each other. An app let's you setup/create different profiles on the controller per game or gamer. Price: 150,00€ The second model is the Razer Raiju Ultimate and it comes equipped with ultra fashionable RBG lightning around your touchpad, which makes Disco Stuf's place look like shit. It also has an additional multi-functional touch bar with four buttons that can be configured individually. And interchangeable thumbsticks and d-pad. This controller costs more then your actual PS4, price: 199,99€. If you're that kind of dude or girl that's stuck in the 90's I recommend you buy yourself an Ultimate controller. If you only want an Xbox controller for your PlayStation I suggest you use bing and search Hori Onyx. Do you prefer these over the DualShock 4 controllers? Let us know your opinion.

    Three Ways To Run The 5.05 Kernel Exploit

    5.50? What about 5.55?
  14. Hi! I'll shortly describe three (easy) ways to run the new Kernel Exploit for firmware 5.05. These methods should work up until 5.07. Thanks to all developers and hackers who had part in this release! There are other great ways like Al Azif's Exploit Host, but my time is limited. Make sure to visit: https://t.co/xx4ZF9OgKm) If you have a console with a lower firmware you can download the 5.05 firmware update from ex. consolehax.com/vault/ . Rename the file to PS4UPDATE.PUP and place it on a USB Drive (PS4/UPDATE/PS4UPDATE.PUP). Install it via Settings and make sure the console has no connection to the internet. A. LOCAL HOSTING You can host the exploit on your computer by running a local webserver. In order to do so, you need to setup the server with the files found on SpecterDev's GitHub page. I will not explain the configuring of the webserver itself. Download the files: https://github.com/Cryptogenic/PS4-5.05-Kernel-Exploit Configure your webserver with the files from step 1 Connect your PS4 to the server Open the browser Navigate to the IP address of the server Click OK when the message 'We have updated our privacy policy in accordance with GDPR...' appearce Minimize the browser by pressing the PS Button Profit B. ESP8266 (ESP8266 Xploit Host) Developer @c0d3m4st4 has released an update which includes the exploit for firmware 5.05. You can flash the firmware with NodeMCU PyFlasher (Windows). Download ESP8266XploitHost 2.3: https://mega.nz/#!OI8GxAyA!54QnxvbXkPiSrs0j_d5dWwopqsHg42S5hS-MLSd2leQ Download NodeMCU PyFlasher 3.0: https://github.com/marcelstoer/nodemcu-pyflasher/releases Press and hold the Flash button on the ESP then connect it via USB to your PC Run the software NodeMCU PyFlasher Choose the ESP from the Serial Port drop downlist Firmware = The .bin file downloaded in step 1 Baud rate = 115200 Flashmode = DIO Erase Flash = Yes, Wipe all When the proces is finished make sure to power your ESP, and boot your PS4. Navigate to 'Settings' - 'Network' en click on Custom Choose WiFi and connect to ESP8266XploitHost The password is 'ps4xploit' without the ' Click OK and next until you test the connection If the connection test succeeds navigate to 'Settings' - 'User Manual' and you'll be greeted with the custom ESP interface. Select Mira + HEN from the list. C. Hosted Online Hacker Qwertuiop is hosting the exploit on crack.bargains. This is the easiest step, but it does require the console to connect to the internet. Therefore I recommend to not use this if possible. Open the browser Open the URL: http://crack.bargains/505k/ Click OK when the message 'We have updated our privacy policy in accordance with GDPR...' appearce Minimize the browser by pressing the PS Button Profit I'm aware of other methods to successfully run the exploit, but someone else will explain these.
