Bricked PSP? That’s Alright.

The boys down at NOOBz figured out a way to “un-brick” your PSPs, although if your PSP looks like the one in the photo, you’re fucked.

It involves you using a buddy’s PSP, and putting an app on the memory stick which turns the battery into a “jigkick” battery, also rendering the battery useless after this is all done, so you might want to buy one. Then you take that battery and memory stick into the bricked PSP and voila, you get yourself a working 1.50 PSP! So that’s pretty sweet probably costs less then you sending it in to Sony as well. Let’s give it up to the guys at NOOBz.

GH3 Demo With THPG

See I told you we get Rock Band and Guitar Hero III news on a regular basis. So when you go buy Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground this October, it’ll come packaged with a 5 song GH3 demo:

Lay Down (by Priestess)
Even Flow (by Pearl Jam)
The Metal (by Tenacious D)
Hit Me with your Best Shot (as made famous by Pat Benatar)
Rock You like a Hurricane (as made famous by Scorpions)

It’ll be available on the marketplace 2 weeks later, but that’s a lot of practice time gone, good song list as well.

Silent Hill Origins Demo Leaked

How exactly did this get out? It started poping out on torrent sites on Saturday, here’s what Climax CEO Karl Jeffrey had to say

“All I can say is that code did not leak from Climax – 100 per cent guaranteed,” said Jeffery.

“The code that is out there is fingerprinted and was supplied solely to Konami for marketing purposes.”

So the leak happened in house at Konami… um interesting.

New 360 Coming Soon?

The Xbox 360 Core might be getting a bit of an upgrade this Christmas season. Being dubbed the “arcade” Xbox 360, it’ll basically be a Core but with added features such as, a wireless controller, a 256MB memory card, an HDMI port and 5 free arcade games. It’s also being rumored that it’ll cost the exact same price as the core of today, so that’s a plus, way more incentive to get that SKU now!
