The big update (v4.50) from Sony is now Live on your PlayStation 4 Console after graduating from the closed beta stage the past weeks. This update brings some nice new features for user's and one that make sense for everyone with allowing External HDDs to store your game content & media. Why Sony pushes small HDDs on the consoles and then relys heavily on digital downloads these days were always a mystery to me, user's are often left with little spare space which has no doubt affect many of our purchases and decisions to purchase a game at times, now with expanded space and with external HDD options that will give us all a bit more flexibility and i would expect some additional game sales for Sony as well resulting from this new inclusions to 4.50 OFW.. Maybe one day Sony can take a page from many of the devs and allow us to stream our games from our local networks, Until then checkout the vast amount of changes that Sony has detailed in recent days
Developer DeViL303 is always looking at ways to tweak and enhance the PS3 XMB for PS3 Custom Firmware user's as we have witnessed with project such as XMB Package Downloader (XMBPD) & webMAN Launchpad and also his work with teammates of XMB Manager Plus (XMBM+) and this latest release for the XMB gives us the ability to swap out a pre-arranged boot_plugin.txt files to enabled and disable some ps3 plugins. While they are pre-arranged options they can be customized by the user's giving you 5 quick combinations for your plugin changing needs. This release has been developed and tested for REBUG v4.81.xx ONLY . Take note this release uses COBRA's (boot_plugin.txt) method of loading plugins & also requires webMAN MOD for this new functional XMB mod to work. ​

RayCast3D Engine. VitaSudoku, VitaPad, AntiBlacklist, vitaWanted, vitaHexen II, Minicraft, luaIRC & rinCheat SE.

Since the recent advancement in COBRA CFW (payload) thanks to one of deank additions that made playing games from a backup disc possible saving some HDD space for those wanting to keep your originals in good standing but may not have the space to hold your collection. It was only a matter of time before we started see some tools that would be designed with this new feature in mind and long time friend of psx-place developer psykosis has released Mr. Burns. This simple app is based on makeps3iso by developer estwald (Iris Manager's dev aka Hermes), the toll will convert a folder format (JB folder) to an ISO file and then will call imgburn to then burn your ISO to a disc and playable on Cobra 7.52 +.

Also a POC feature has been added that will allow other VSH plugins and developer's to add their own custom commands from this interface within the plugin. More details about this release can be seen in the provided details.​
