PlayView on PS3

Description[edit]

Generic[edit]

Game used to advertise PlayView

Using "ultra- high resolution (4K) digital data", PSP or PS3 will display the images smoothly. It can be compatible 3D and PS Move (At CEDEC 2010, Teiji Yutaka demonstrated PlayView using the PlayStation Move controller in real time to increase and reduce the size of a still image of a park consisting of over 3 billion pixels) +EYE Camera on PS3 and can packed with other extra content(themes, DLC).

Most of the time, each full screen page display is equivalent to 2 paper pages of an art book/game manual but other display have been release (Gran Turismo PlayView: long highway road, with zoom you reach other visual content).

Specific background music or sound and videos per page can be apply.

There are various kind of content (guide book, sexy content, stand alone games) for PS3 and PSP (Some games titles are present in both category). However, it work on the same way (with specific encryption/security, resolution/more sub element such sound channel etc...)

PS3 games can contain embebed Playview (e.g. the "wizard book" inside "Ni No Kuni" uses a custom game module named libTGV_v1.45.07.sprx)

Title ID: Japan: PS3: NPJB60*** & NPJA60*** , for PSP: NPJH60***. Others: "4K gallery": NPEB01397)

Playview might requires PSP FW 6.39 or so, and PS3 FW min around 3.70.

Few full free content for PS3 & PSP are available online.

Transfer from PSP PlayView to PS VITA is possible for some PlayView titles (export PS3 to PSP also is possible but as not bootable, transfer with UMD passport?).

PSP/PS3 Digital comic/strategy/guide/manual are not PlayView.

Codename of playview is TGV (Tiny Gigantic Viewer) and the derivates with an added or removed letter (TG, GV, etc...)

  • tgv.cfg : file configuration of PlayView (optional, open with notepad++ or as text on linux)
  • ui.dat.edat : boot screen, user interface images & setting related

example structure PSP/PS3[edit]

PlayView image layers for 1 page

Structure and display on both device PS3/PSP can be like flipping the pages of a book (see youtube game link and XML structure content.dat.edat) with specific background music for each page.

For one page (one page equivalent of 2 paper pages):

  • Each page contain 6 (or 5) layers with the same graphical content, the layer display is according to the level you zoom.
  • Aspect ratio is 1.77 (16:9) (all PSP models).
  • The demo video linked/image show a little different structure (tile sizes only as 256x256 and grid) . Described as"authoring", it s easy to understand/manipulate/modulate.

  • Not all pages need to have the same resolution.
  • Max resolution seen (PS3): 7680x4320

Game Data[edit]

Can be slightly different and for convenience description, this term of "1.01" (based on disc_version from PSP title) is used for wikify but it not meant to be strict since there are not strictly two different model at this level of files (neither as PS3/PSP)

However, PlayView version "1.00" and "1.01" difference are cosmetic order (or divided file on some PS3 title) until content.dat.edat XML structure (to be picky) and PlayView setting (format +warning/logo/user interface screen...).

*Tgvtools-v0.81xx / 4416 (FW 3.70.001), v.1.10xx / 5450 (FW 410.001), v.1.11xx / 5906 (FW 430.001) v1.50xx (Local build) / 5890 (FW 430.001)
*Ni No Kuni internal PlayView book use Tgvtools-v0.81 (FW 3.70.001)

content.dat(.edat):[edit]

The file contains a file list, and XML files giving the structure to transport elements such video, music background etc... (thiis file format can vary up to PlayView version)

  • First part header:
