  1. Oh. Hmm well that blows :S.


    What I want to know is what happens to the battery- when they say you can't use it normally anymore, what does that mean? How do you charge it? Isn't it still powering the PSP after you install 1.50 and boot up for the first time?


    The battery can be changed back after you are all done. However, you need either a second battery or a second psp (to use to convert the battery back to normal) to run things after you unbrick, as the unbricker battery will not let the psp boot normally. You switch batteries to a normal one to boot the full 1.50.


    Video of the process, showing when to switch batteries:



    After you have unbricked, you can turn the unbrick battery back into a normal one. But to get through the process you need two, or alternatively a 2nd psp to use to turn the unbrick battery back into a normal one. But if you have a 2nd psp, you probably and a 2nd battery...

  2. Hopefully, Becus25 and eiffel56 will be able to fill in for DAX. They both have released custom firmwares, so maybe one (or both) of them will get around to 3.51 OE? And maybe Mathieulh will help them out?

    I agree. although their firmwares are built upon DA's, these coders are gaining experience and could probably take over where he left off. Keep in mind that DA was not responsible for the cracking of each official firmware, he merely implemented it into his custom scheme. Other than coding better video capabilities, his last few releases have essentially been maintenence updates, which some other coder could easily accomplish.


    While it sucks that one of the most important hackers for any system is quitting, I have a feeling that the PSP scene will go on. Still he'll be missed!

  3. I agree with GC 100%. I decided to buy one of the three handhelds at the beginning of the year and did some comparasion shopping. The GP2X is kind of pointless to buy. There is a better selection of games on the DS, but the PSP won out for me because of the homebrew emulation and perfect PS1 emulation. There are still tons of PS1 RPG's I haven't played, and I'm slowly making my way through them on the PSP.

    I have yet to buy a PSP game because I prefer to play older emulated games. Maybe if I cared to have the latest games I might have considered the DS because of the unique games on it. So it just depends on what you're looking for.

    Sony may suck, but if you like classic gaming, the PSP definately does not suck!

  4. Wired has an interesting op-ed up about the pitfalls of using voice chat (Ventrilo) in online games like WoW.




    Basicaly the author thinks its fine to text chat with people, but when he logs on to ventrilo and finds out his guild mates are 12 year olds, its a little too weird. And also he thinks girls will be turned off gaming by voice chat.


    We have quite a large age range here, and probably a bunch of people who play games with voice chat.

    Anyone here have an opinion on this?

  5. I don't read DC comics (or at least not mainstream DC, just Vertigo and Wildstorm) so I can't compare Civil War to Infinite Crisis or 52. But I must say I was disappointed by Civil War. there was a lot of potential that was ultimately wasted. The worst was the use of Spider-man's big reaveal. Totally wasted by not properly letting the impact be explored in Amazing Spider-man.

    The only development I really think was well done was Tony Stark's development. I thought there was a good progression from control-freak hero to control-freak dictator. Felt believable for his character to take that path, unlike Spidey or Reed Richards.
