A Keyboard is All That is Needed to Hack the PlayStation Classic

Published

The launch of the PlayStation Classic has been somewhat troubled. While the build quality of the hardware has received praise, customers have complained about the poor selection of games, the use of off-the-shelf hardware and emulation software, as well as performance problems.

A previous OnlySP article noted how the PlayStation Classic’s use of open source emulation might make the PlayStation Classic relatively easy to hack. According to YouTube channel Retro Gaming Arts, this process seems to be far easier than anyone could have expected.

The YouTube creators discovered that how to easily access the emulator settings menu simply by using a USB keyboard. By plugging in a USB keyboard, loading one of the pre-loaded games and hitting the Escape key, the emulator menu becomes accessible.

This menu allows users to use multiple save states, change scanline settings, and alter games from PAL to NTSC to access 60FPS.

The channel does warn that users do this at their own risk, as altering these settings may have an effect on the system. Retro Gaming Arts also says that not all USB keyboards work to access the menu, and has confirmed that so far Logitech and Corsair keyboards do appear to work.

For further updates on the PlayStation Classic from OnlySP, keep checking back with the Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube.

Report: Game of Thrones Creator Collaborating With FromSoftware

FromSoftware Game of Thrones

The writer of A Song of Ice and Fire, the book series behind the popular television show Game of Thrones, has reportedly been consulting on a FromSoftware title.

In a blog post on his official website, George R. R. Martin stated that he has “consulted on a video game out of Japan.”

Gematsu has reported that a contact familiar with FromSoftware—the Japanese development studio known for Dark SoulsBloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice—has shared that Martin is working with the studio on a project known internally as “GR.”

According to Gematsu‘s contact, the project, which has been in development for three years, is an open-world game and will feature horse riding. The player will be able to visit several kingdoms and obtain ability by killing their leaders. Hidetaka Miyazaki, director of some of FromSoftware’s most acclaimed titles, is reportedly working on the game.

Gematsu reports that the title will be officially announced at Microsoft’s E3 press conference later this year.

YouTube channel Spawn Wave reported in March about a rumour regarding a potential collaboration between Martin and FromSoftware, so this recent report gives even more validity to the speculation. However, without any official word, the news should be taken with a grain of salt.
