Home Consoles such as the PS4 or Xbox One are made for playing them "at Home" right? Well, I bet there are at least a few people who already asked themselves several times: "Why I can't play Red Dead Redemption 2 while sitting on the train?" Sadly the answer was mostly that "You can't" before, due to several technical problems. Sony had some good ideas with their PlayStation Vita to play "AAA Game Titles" on the go but lacked of actually those "AAA Game Titles" and due to expensive accessories you needed to get most of the Console. And playing on the Nintendo Switch is not satisfying for everyone. So you had either the choice to buy one of those very expensive "Gaming Notebooks" for several Thousand Dollars or you read a book while getting to work or to school by train. But the People behind the "GameBook" had bothered oneself about this problematic question by starting a Kickstarter-Campaign to introduce their newest invention to people like you who asked the same question from time to time. And the coolest thing about this Campaign is, you won't need to disassemble your PS4 bit by bit to create your own "Custom PS4 Notebook" only to get the PS4 Hardware fitting inside a Notebook Case. Just use your regular PS4 and you are already on the go. How convenient is that?
The "GameBook" will come in two sizes, the smaller one with an 18.4" inch screen and the larger one with 23.8" inches.
Turn your gaming console into a laptop
- Your console has the power – the GameBook provides everything else! Till now carrying your Playstation 4 or Xbox One was a real hazzle.
- This ends now! The GameBook is convenient, portable and lightweight. It´s robustness makes it a charm to just grab it and take it wherever you go.
- In fact, you now can utilize your console a lot more, since you now can play when you have time – not just when you are at home.
- That's why we created the GameBook - to remove those restrictions and give you the freedom of using your beloved Playstation 4 or Xbox One anytime you want.
Get the freedom of playing your favourite game at almost any place
Whether you're a creative, a student, a road warrior, a frequent flyer, or all of the above, the GameBook gives you the freedom to relax whenever you want with your favorite videogame or movie.
- You can easily use your GameBook on a train. Just stove your bags, take your seat, plug it and enjoy the full potential of your gaming console.
- The same works for a hotel room. Drop of your luggage, pull the GameBook out, plug it in and you roll.
- Or you hang out with couple of friends at one of their homes. Grab your GameBook and have a good time with your favourite co-op game, while actually being in the same room as your teammates.
- You could also take a break at your favourite cafe - playing a round (or two) of your favourite arcade game.
- And basically... you can do all of this wherever you want. Plug the GameBook into a suitable Powerbank and enjoy the freedom to play at almost any place.
Does the GameBook have an internal battery?
The short answer is no. It might be feasible in the future but for the first version of the GameBook we went without. Although we set a very ambitious Stretch goal. Reaching this mark would definately give us the opportunity to develop a internal battery solution for the GameBook mini and the RetroBook (another StretchGoal).
How can I use the GameBook without a power supply?
Since it has no internal battery you would have to rely on a powerbank to connect it to the GameBook. Important notice: Just a few work with the requirements and power demand of a PS4 or Xbox console. One good option we discovered is the following.
This video shows an early protoype of the "GameBook" running with an PS4 inside.
So, as mentioned above. You can just use your regular PS4 without any disassembly needed like in various other Projects which came out everytime whenever a new Console was released. And while those Projects were always unique Versions of a "Portable Home Console", this Campaign makes things a lot of easier for the mass market by just grabbing your console together with the case while inside and you are up to go. And the fact that this Device is even "future-proof" by planing the support for upcoming Consoles shows how many details this Team worked out for keeping things as simple as possible. You will only need to buy this Device once while your Consoles keeps getting updated. And there is no Problem when you will be find some time indeed at home. Just use the included HDMI-OUT port and you can enjoy your Games at home as usual as before without taking the Console back out of the Case and without plugging it back to the TV. But how cool would it be even when you are playing online against others worldwide while you are sitting inside a Cafe by enjoying your morning routine before going to work? Your opponent at the end of beyond would never believe that you just "killed his Character while drinking some coffee outside at the park".

PS3 HFW (Hybrid Firmware) 4.84.1 - PS3Xploit HAN & Flash Tools Restored for 4.84 OFW usersHuge News as the PS3 exploit ladder has taken a step up into 4.84 rung, with a new approach to bring back PS3Xploit functionality on 4.84. With a Hybrid Firmware (NOT A CFW) that can be installed on ANY MODEL PS3 over any Official Firmware (OFW) version. .The only thing this modified firmware essentially does is bring back the patched webkit from OFW 4.82 that was an entry point for PS3Xploit, if you recall when 4.84 was released developers @bguerville and @esc0rtd3w stated the exploit was not actually patched but rather only the webkit entry used was removed in 4.83+ which rendered the actual exploit unreachable (not patched and could be restored). Now the webkit is back for 4.84 OFW thanks to this new clever magic that has allowed OFW user's to use and install this slightly modified Firmware.
So, what does all this mean? Now Its just like it was back in 4.82 before PS3Xploit was patched you will be able to install a CFW (on a CFW compatible model) and for those unfortunate user's that does not have a CFW Compatible model (i.e. SuperSlim/late slims) you have will have access to the HAN exploit . So for new user's or ones that updated, here is your second chances thanks to the efforts of the PS3Xploit Team and to @Joonie (waved magic wand on files), @habib (for valuable input on this project) and @esc0rtd3w (work in porting ps3xploit tools to 4.84) and the PS3XploitContinue reading
Milestone Update for Orbital - An PS4 Emulator by @AlexAltea - now with (very first) Video Output!Nearly a year ago, Developer @AlexAltea showcased us an early-stage Version from his own PS4 Emulator called Orbital. The very first Version was on a minimal stage by running several code examples on a Terminal within Linux only but this was already impressive since as you probably know, both the PS4 and standard Computers shares the same x86 CPU Architecture. But the CPU isn't the only thing the PS4 shares with a standard PC. Since you need also a lot of GPU Power to run your Games on a Console for General, it is getting quite usual that those big players like NVIDIA or AMD are collaborating with the Console Manufacturers to deliver them with special-designed Graphics Processing Units for the Consoles you own. Even when we talk about "Special" GPU's, you already recognized by yourself that if you go further in newer Console Generations, you realized that the internal GPU used inside each Console is having more and more similarities compared to a standard GPU. With that result in mind, Developer @AlexAltea showcased yesterday that his Emulator Orbital is capable of running the Safe Mode of the PS4 together with getting a Video Output from that mentioned Safe Mode as well, which leads to the point that his Emulator showcased the very first Video Output from a PS4 emulated by a PC! Do I have to say more? Continue reading
