New PSP exploit found in GripShift, works on PSP-3000

Now this is how you start a new year! New exploit, old game! It's so cool to actually see this beauty working - and on a PSP-3000 no less! The PSP scene was buzzing the other day when MaTiAz found an exploit (read: buffer overflow!) in the three year old game, GripShift.

Don't these people have jobs or girl friends or something?

But hey, what ever floats their boat.

gaffyh5668d ago

Lol now GripShift will get a huge sales boost.

tatotiburon5668d ago

why are you complaining? without this guys the PSP be dead by now. 90% of the PSP install base use custom firmware for many homebrew app, do you guys actually believes that the PSP sold that well because of the games?

neoxdonut5668d ago

Probably just a matter of time now.

Idree5668d ago

Great news!

PSP with CFW is still the best gaming experience ever :)

SpartanGR5668d ago

Homebrew is the biggest excuse for piracy. Imagine how many games we missed on our beloved PSP because of piracy

tatotiburon5668d ago

piracy on DS is easier and still have more and better games, not crappy ports

Top 5 Underappreciated PSN Games

Infinite Bits:
Over the last two and a half years, the number of PSN games has grown exponentially to the point where it can be easy to overlook fantastic titles, leaving quirky or indie titles sadly crying in the corner, alone and unappreciated. So, being PSN junkies who have bought practically every game that has come out on it (even, sadly, Cash Guns Chaos), we decided to whip up a list of the top five underappreciated PSN games. These are gems that everybody should experience!

but there's just too many great psn titles.. in fact, psn has a better library compared to the competition.. just not enough psOne titles but with FFVII out, the tides are turning

jfx3165567d ago

Söldner-X: Himmelsstürmer is insanely hard. I bought it first day (with Luminies Supernova) and I still haven't gotten off the second level. The list seems pretty good. So many good games on PSN. Shame people are still going into the 'PS3 has no games' chorus.

NDoerrFans5567d ago

I don't know how recently you played Soldner-X, but they've patched it with a "Beginner" mode to make it nice and easy to run through. It's still a fair challenge, but I never lost a continue. This way you can enjoy the music and get a feel for those brutal later levels!

eZJrg6ur5567d ago

Yeah the new patch is really nice. It's still a pretty darn hard game, but saves you money on broken controllers.

Bnet3435567d ago

I don't buy PSN games that don't have a demo unless I know what I am buying. For example I bought Lumines SuperNOVA and that didn't release a demo, but I knew what I was getting into.

Defectiv3_Detectiv35567d ago

What about EVERYDAY SHOOTER? Still waiting for the trophies on that one...

I also thought wipeout HD was almost as good as a retail game.

A recent PSN game that is getting no love is Rag Doll Kung Fu. The single player is a little meh... but playing with friends is a total blast.

Freak of Nature5567d ago

YUP,I like it's style...

Another game that deserves more credit and I feel is a great addition to the entire line-up is......"LEMMINGS"!

callahan095567d ago

Decent list. I didn't care for the Elefunk demo much, and I bought Soldner-X and didn't think it lived up to some of the classic Treasure shmups, or the classic Gradius or R-Type games, etc., but it was decent enough. I whole-heartedly agree with The Last Guy, though. That game is brilliant fun and totally underappreciated. And I never played Gripshift, the but the accompanying dizzying screenshot provided with this article alone makes me interested in trying it out!

eZJrg6ur5567d ago

Yeah, the demo for Elefunk was worthless because you need to learn so much to properly enjoy it. It's a HUGE knock against the game, but its great fun if you can overcome the difficulty curve.

GripShift is quite worth playing IMO, as long as you know what you're going in for. It's not a racing game really and driving controls are loose, but if you look at it as an action puzzle game its great fun!
