GTA Cheat Device

This release (The one you've all been waiting for) adds the ability to drive on walls with any car! It's pretty simple to use too. To use the cheat device, simply download a game save (US/UK version), run GTA, and load the Cheat Device as a game save.

To use the drive on walls cheat: You need to use hover cars to get on a roof of a building (One that has a roof, as some don't in GTA:LCS), then drive off the edge at about 20 mph. As long as the "driving on walls" cheat is activated, you will be able to drive on the wall! Edison Carter also stressed that this does not work on 2.7; so please don't request for it to ported to 2.7.

Note: This game replaces the game save in slot 1, if you wish to keep a saved game from slot1, please move your desired save game to another slot. Disclaimer: THIS CAN CRASH YOUR GAME. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. USE 333MHZ AT YOUR OWN RISK! Don't save your game after using this

Sony Hinting At New PSP Features or PSP 2?

This is something for the rumor mills. Apparently, PSP gamer birdman1 of invisionfree's forums, recently received an emailed survey from Playstation, and according to him after answering a few pages of the survey, there was a page largely devoted to what would make the PSP better (left thumbnail). This sounds like the Sony people are wanting feedback about possible new features. But then again, maybe Sony isn't coming up with a PSP 2, but maybe they are just coming up with a firmware update.

Sony Brings Net-Based-TV-to-PSP Service to Europe Via LocationFree TV

Sony will next month launch its LocationFree TV (LFTV) service in the UK and other key European territories, allowing PlayStation Portable users to receive television programmes transmitted from the home and out across the internet. Mac users are to get access to the service too. LPTV support is included in the PSP firmware update - version 2.7 - Sony announced this week. The upgrade - due to be posted on the Sony Computer Entertainment Europe website on 25 May - also adds podcast and RSS support, and the ability to handle AAC and WMA music files. LPTV will be launched in the UK, Germany, France, Belgium and the Netherlands, where, from next month, consumers will be able to buy Sony's LF-PK1 unit, which streams TV, DVD and other content from AV devices out onto the web. Any LFTV-compatible device can receive the stream and control what's streamed and when.Already available in the US, the LF-PK1 costs $350 (£196/€281). Sony hasn't said how much the product will cost in Europe.The unit ships with software for the PSP and PCs. Sony this week said it had licensed the technology to software developer Kaga to port the code to Mac OS X. The software is also expected to be ported to Windows Mobile and other mobile device operating systems, Sony said. In January this year, it said it would offer a software development kit to allow programmers to create LFTV-compatible apps on a variety of platforms. Again, it's not yet clear how much the software will eventually cost....?

Firmware Update 2.70

Finally... the highly waited firmware update has finally been released. It came out in japan 24hours before it came out to the rest of the gaming world. New features include,Flash PLayer 6. This allows users to play flash games online, which is great because you can save flash games on to the memory stick. With the new update homebrew fans will not be able to use the gta eloader on 2.7 psp's. Click here for more details on the new firmware update. It looks like that the 3.00v update was justa rumour. The update wont be out untill later this year. Sill no one knows the exact date.

UMD Movies

Due to lack of UMD movie sales. Hollywood producers are cutting down the amount of UMD films they make. If UMD video sales increase again then UMD production might increase. Popular old films have came out on UMD aswell as new one's. The UMD can hold to 1.8gb. UMD films don't have full special features unlike the DVD's.

PSP Replacement Faceplates

Psp replacement faceplates have been made. The faceplates rage from all kinds of colours and designs. Replacement faceplates cost about $50.00 and come with brand new buttons depending on what colour faceplate bought. To remove the existing faceplate on the psp you would have to take off the warranty void. I would suggest that you wait until your warranty runs out and then think about replacing the faceplate. Once you take off the existing faceplate dust can easliy gather on the screen. Visit the psp message boards on http://www.us.playstation.com/ to see full tutorial's on how to remove the faceplate.

New Sony DVD Records Straight to PSP

Sony Electronics has made the move to make its products more compatible by releasing a new range of DVD recorders capable of recording straight on to the company's handheld games console, the PSP. Not only that, but the new RDZ-D97A, RDZ-77A, and RDZ-87 models also allow the recording of three programmes at the same time, including one in high-definition (HD). They have a storage capacity ranging between 250GB and 500GB. The PSP connectivity is a new feature, although bizarrely the most powerful model, the RDZ-87, does not have this capability.Owners of the PSP have also had the option of buying movies for the device, although this function has reportedly not been as successful as some had hoped. With the ability to record straight on to the device, perhaps using the PSP as a programme viewing tool will become more popular.The three models will have an initial release only in Japan from May 19th.

White Sony PSP

Currently only white japanese psp's are available. A lot of gamers are waiting for Sony to launch American white psp's. UMD games are not region coded but the movies are so this create's a problem for white psp owner's who do not live in Japan. There is no say to when Sony will release white psp's in North America and Europe.
