    After a long wait it's finally here.
    The Cobra team has released their ODDE for the PS3!

    The device works on all of the PS3 versions and is pretty much solderless to install.
    Slim consoles does require soldering? but their easy to install none the less.


    The prices range between 100 and 140 quid.
    People from the USA are going to have to wait before domestic resellers are stocked.
    People from the UK have no problem on getting the ODDE.

    Now this is interesting. Previously, to install a different BD drive, you needed a means to run homebrew to "marry" the drive to the system. I'm kind of curious of how you install and set up this ODDE.

    I really want to know what it actually looks like, but I can't find pictures anywhere.

    No more need to keep my PS3 games next to my TV/PS3? I'm interested. Once the next gen comes along and PS3 PSN will undoubtably be getting worse (just like every old console/PC game in the past), I'll hit this into a PS3. If it works without CFW to begin with.

    I think you need to be on 3.55 to get the drive key and then you can safely update to the latest ofw

    From what I gather, this seems like a superior alternative to the 3k3y, at least from launch.

    Wait, so does this mean ISOs on a totally unmodded PS3, regardless of firmware?

    Pretty much yes, but as long as there is no confirmation on how to get drive keys from OFW PS3s, there is no way of knowing how the feature is done.
