FreeDVDExploit is a new hack for the Sony PlayStation 2 that has been discovered by Security Researcher CTurt – it allows the user to boot homebrew games on an unmodded PS2 console via DVD Player exploits.

Sony’s PS5 ‘Reveal’ Is Over – And Boy, Was It a Disaster

Sony’s PlayStation 5 “reveal” event was a sleep-inducing 50 minutes of utter boredom. It’s hard to imagine how it could have gone worse.

  • Today’s PS5 “reveal” event turned out to be a 50-minute lecture aimed at developers.
  • The sleep-inducing presentation appears to have been initially scheduled for GDC2020 before the event was canceled.
  • Not only did Mark Cerny drone on for 50 minutes about the same three things, but we still didn’t learn anything about the PS5’s “killer features.”

Well, that was disappointing. After months of waiting for the PlayStation 5 (PS5) reveal, Sony delivered one of the most boring and utterly pointless events imaginable.

Mark Cerny basically got up on stage and gave a talk aimed solely at game developers. That would have been fine at GDC, where he planned to present it. But Sony talked today’s event up as a gamer-focused PS5 unveiling.

So hundreds of thousands of people tuned in, expecting to finally get some information about the console. Instead, all we got was a bunch of pointless tech speak.
