I think it could as well take some time. since someone has to meet the following criteria:
- Owning a PS4 that came with a Firmware 6.72 or lower
- Having logged into PSN to get Beat Saber before an update came out
- Not having updated since then
- Actually being willing to share a dump of the game
It's the third part that is the most difficult one, I guess. I mean, it is possible. I once activated a PS4 with a PSN account in order to activate Remote Play natively and held out on updating until the next exploit (after which other means of getting Remote Play to work on a hacked PS4 surfaced). Therefore it is not impossible, but I would not get my hopes up that someone did this accidentally and now realizes "Oh, I can dump Beat Saber. How convenient."
I can get behind the first part, but what exactly would be the benefit of 5.05 users updating when it comes to digitall-only games? Physical games in the range of 5.50-6.72 are already being dumped aplenty and 5.05 users won't be able to dump any digital games that came out after 5.05, well, because they stayed on 5.05.
I would still like to understand the logic here. Please elaborate.
that's the way it it for every system. for example, to make a fix for a ps3 game, you need the rap. the only way to get the license is to have paid for it. it's the same way with every system, someone had to have paid for the game at some point down the line in order to make the game free, which is essentially the only way to pirate the game. going on my ps3 example, that's why there's no way to fix ps2 games. there's no free klicense (i.e. there was never a free ps2 game released). that's essentially what every dev/hacker banks on, some game that's free. I'm pretty sure that's why that pokemon game was used on the switch in the early days of installing games. it was free.
