Sony might be running around trying to close up the holes, but that hasn’t stopped enterprising homebrew developers doing what they do best: developing homebrew. You know, the good stuff that comes out of these things rather than the awful hacking that is plaguing some online titles – especially first person shooters.
The latest? A version of id’s Doom – a fully fledged port of the Doom engine to the PS3 – there’s been versions before but the latest, 0.4, runs on currently hacked PS3s.
It needs proper (and thus hopefully legally purchased) WAD files, of course, but it’ll run anything from the full Doom 2 experience right through to the shareware version of the first game. It also, apparently, runs in 1080p and at a decent lick, with the sticks used to move and strafe that plucky space marine as expected.
As always, TSA does not condone piracy of any kind. Unless it’s Jack Sparrow. He’s still cool.
