Super Pong

Above is a screenshot of one of the most exciting PS3 exclusives to be announced this year.

2 Player Pong by Dragula96…

So why is this the most exciting exclusive of the lot? Well because it has been created by a member of the community and is available to download right now from here.

Granted it’s not pretty or very interesting but it’s a huge step forward for the idea of community gaming on the PS3. If they manage to kick it off and move forward it could be a big blow to Microsoft’s community network.

Thought without some serious development tools I don’t think that is going to be the case.

    Lol, is it okay to think of it as the first step towards the moon?

    Or maybe that should be Uranus?

  • darthdad

    Finally someone unleashes the power of the PS3!

  • Vamp

    uhm…could this be the console mover that the PS3 has
    been waiting for? 🙂

    While I shall agree that pong is well YAWN!
    I think the actual even is huge, how long till they can figure out how to convert all those cool flash games to play on ps3!

  • will this game actually work if you download it.

    I mean this is pretty much like the homebrew PSP stuff, but we had to hack our PSPs to get that stuff working.

    Have Sony left open a little hole in their firmware allowing unsigned code to run, or have they knowingly allowed this ?

    You should be able to click the link above, download it and run it from the Linux side of the PS3 ( I think)…

    You need to install Linux first most probably though.

    It’s a community written game running on the PS3. That is the news, not that it’s pong

  • Pong Sux!
    Arkanoid FTW!

    😉

    Surely they’ve had other Linux games running on the PS3 before now?

  • Its not running in Linux.
    Its using BD-J .. the blu-ray java.
    So you put this on a usb flashdrive and run it as a “movie” which bascially puts you into the game as the PS3 thinks your on some blu-ray’s special features or menu or whatever.

    I don’t think BD-J will give your all the power of the PS3, just like Linux is limited and can’t get access to the GPU.
