PS3 viral web code cracked

A few days ago, Sony launched the PlayB3yond web site with a picture of a melting clock and minimal fanfare. Yesterday, the site updated to a feature a mysterious assortment of 26 clickable symbols that bear a passing resemblance to the PlayStation controller buttons. Mere hours later, the mystery has been solved by intrepid Joystiq reader Zelda X (who either has an inside source or way too much free time). Using the alphabet key and codes in the image above, PS3 fans can use the PlayB3yond site to unlock wallpapers, soundtracks, videos and behind-the-scenes interviews for some big name PS3 launch games.

Atleast we didn't have to sit there and look at a stupid rabbit and a hole then a twig then a tree then to find out it had nothing to do with the 360 or games really. My god that was the lamest crap I had ever seen, then the fanboys claiming it had to do with Halo 3 then the "how far does the rabbit hole go crap". Instead we get videos, wallpapers, music and more because I'm sure it's far from done.

Microsoft didn't start this pre-released website concept. it's been done for movies and other forms of media way before Microsoft.

andy capps6351d ago

I saw this last night before I went to bed, tried messing around with it some but couldn't figure it out. It's not a bad idea, unfortunately I can't watch these at work. I put the codes in and it says buffering forever.

Daewoodrow6351d ago

No, you're right, MS didn't come up with the idea. But I bet Sony wouldn't have thought of doing it if MS hadn't done it.

Bhai6351d ago

...then better is always appreciated. Moreover you're saying like, if Sony hadn't made a gaming machine earliar then Xbox wouldn't have existed ! Hah !!! right ! but its about who does the thing better...and Sony is ways....ways...ways... ahead of MS in that department and everybody knows this quite assuredly !

i'm not sure this is going to raise the PS3's profile or anticipation, but its a nice idea.

USMChardcharger6351d ago

Hey THELANDOFSAND, did that news4gamer clan ever take off? what was your gamer tag again?

THELANDSOFSAND6351d ago

i'm not sure- the boards that were set up closed down and were moved and i didn't get the new link. i think you can get it from a few people on here though... i would like the link too if you are reading! (and my bubbles back dusty)

my gamertag is THELANDOFSAND. i like to keep it simple...

HyperBear6351d ago

the url for the N4G 360 Clan is right here http://www.xbox360gamerz.or... But yea there are a lot of us and apparently we are starting up a Gaming Olympiad thing very soon. Check it out for more details.

kingboy6351d ago

OutpostCommand6351d ago

And you watch him-
I bet you he wont flame a single person now due to his lack of bubbles.

Even if he does-
He looses another !

:-D

USMChardcharger6351d ago

you directed that toward my post, why? i haven't lost any bubbles or said anything towards you ever.

title to your comment reads 3.1

i assume you made a mistake and that was to LandofSand.

THELANDSOFSAND6351d ago (Edited 6351d ago )

to both hmm and kingboy-

look, i'm a gamer. check my gamerscore. i love video games and have been playing for 20 years now. i understand you disagree with me on the value of a PS3. now i have been punished with having 2 bubbles removed for (i presume) using offensive language and irrelevant posts (not that i am the only one here...)

i am now changing my behavior and ask you all for a second chance and the ability to speak on this site with 4 or 5 comments. i apologise for any of my posts that have offended people, but i don't think you should harass me for making a positive change in my interaction with this community.

kmis876351d ago

I've gotten pretty annoyed with all of your "blur-ray" comments, especially when they were in news stories that didn't even have anything to do with bluray. But, I'm gonna give you the benefit of the doubt and give positive feedback. Everyone deserves a second chance.

andy capps6350d ago

LandofSand- It was probably also due to you using phrases like "Paystation, Beta-ray, ad nausium...." Anytime people see flamebait like that, it is natural to just hit the spam/offensive comment button. So anyway, glad to see you're trying to improve this site and whatnot. :)

direct links to the flv vids are as follows (if you don't want to take the time to figure out and click every little button)-use the following link as your "default link":
http://http.vitalstreamcdn....

then, add the following to the end and hit enter and it'll download. you'll need an flv player to watch (search "riva flv player" in google if you don't have one):
lair_f5.flv
lair_fr.flv
lair_fa.flv
heavenlysword_as.flv
warhawk_df.flv
warhawk_mo.flv
resistance_tp.flv
resistance_nh.flv

PoE: Deadfire, Unless you have a or PS5 or an SSD don't bother, loading times are insane. A minute and a half to go into a room to investigate a desk in an inn and then an additional 1 1/2 minutes to leave the room and then load to leave the inn???

And they never fixed it.

Square Enix Terminates 10,000 FFXIV Accounts Due to RMT

ESTNN writes: "On the eve of FFXIV's highly-anticipated Final Fantasy 15 collaboration event, the developers issued a statement on the game's official forum about the latest wave of player bans."

RMT ruins the economy for people who aren’t paying for in game money. Prices sky rocket for items. They really need to come up with a system that prevents in game money/item sales and still be able to trade items. I’m sure it can be done but the cost to do it is the issue.
