Got a chance to buy a PS3 really cheap. CFW comes installed, but the discdrive is broken. Seems like a good deal. Nevertheless: do certain games still require a disc in the drive, or will all bakcups play?

I know there's a spreadsheet somewhere of games that work disc-less, but I can't find it...

But anyways, yes, some games do require a disc in the drive.

That's right some games don't run discless.

Make sure at least the logic board is connected, married and working because if it's not, all your apps will black screen.

If the logic board is OK, you can use Rebug 4.30.2 in DEX Mode to emulate your BD Drive on a USB flash drive and play the games that don't work discless.
