    Even if they manage to put hacked firmware, who wants to backup or download upto 50GB games?

    Most games are 5~10GB. If they get to do this, I'm TOTALLY buying a Blu-Ray burner.

    I really don't see a blu-ray drive hack work on the PS3.
    Did everyone forget about the fact that the PS3 has 1 core dedicated to just security.

    Even if it does get hacked, I'm not buying Blu-Ray disks and a burner.

    Even so, 10GB still is a lot of storage space, and downloading a couple of games would instantly use up all of your bandwidth.

    I use PS3 for my single player games so if their efforts lead to any success then I would be quite pleased [​IMG]

    Trust me, it's the only good thing we have. Other than that, most of our services suck. And that's probably because the ISPs here are too ignorant to start placing them.
    Or because piracy is so rampant that most people would just turn to the one without limits [​IMG]

    Enough off topic now!

    Relevant to the thread, BD burners cost now around 100€, and virgin BD-Rs something like 2,5€. Pretty good.

    Even if PS3 hackage does become possible, it'll still be a bit more of an initial investment than other forms of piracy.

    Don't get me wrong, I think 150 bucks for a Blu-burner isn't bad at all when you consider all the free junk you're getting in the long run, but seeing as how most of us are accustomed to our ten-dollar DS carts and dirt-cheap DVD-Rs, it's a bit pricier.

    All I'm saying is... It won't be as easily-accessible. At least not at this very point in time. [​IMG]

    The burner is about $100 now, and the discs are about $1.50 a piece. I say in about a year c4eva will have a hack in some way shape or form for the ps3. By then it should be even more affordable.

    This. If they could add some emulator (don't ask how), I would love them forever and ever and ever.

    I'd love to see what they could do. My new computer came with a Blu-Ray DVD burner accessory, and blank Blu-Rays aren't TOO expensive. [​IMG]

    i'd enjoy the emulators but not interested in pirated ps3 games, too much work
