Here is some news in the PS3 emulation front. Some of you may recall PS3 MAME 0.125 from developer Ole, Its a good MAME port for the PS3, personally prefer I MAME 0.78 (aka MAME 2003) in RetroArch but that is not to take away the from this great MAME port that ps3 developer Ole, which was lacking a nice frontend .Well now a developer over at Torgua-Cove that goes by the handle comango , created this very nice Frontend for the emulator as you can see from the pictures below this frontend adds alot to this emulator. You can see the pics below and also see the video below of the original version. As you can see this new frontend differs and does add some new eye-candy to this MAME port..

The console may of just turned 20 years old recently but that is not stopping the Homebrew Community from making new games for platform. A new PlayStation 1 (PS1) Homebrew Game has popped up from developer Sebastian Mihai. This recently released game titled as The 11th Power is similar to 2048, but differs in gameplay, Instead of numbers [break]ss[/break]which can be a bit boring at times. 11th Power uses Colored Balls each representing an exponent, with the object of getting blue balls, No no not the blue balls your thinking of but 3 blue balls not the pair. In attempt to achieve 2048. This clever take on the game is impressive and is can be very enjoyable.

Also several issues were identified and addressed in this update. Plus to round out this update the developer has tweak the installer to install the webMAN.xml Menu and Icons for the XMB. See the complete changelog provided below.
