    No it won't work. It has to be an official disk release.

    There is no disk release for the ps3 in the west , just the psn version , and it's 15 gb , so i had to convert that in order to leave some space inside my ps3.
    should'nt give false information about things you're not sure of tho.

    1 -extract it and put on an Ext HDD , rename the folder to PS3_GAME / OR if you have it installed on your ps3 and you know what you're doing , navigate to your game folder(PS3/HDD/game/gameID) , copy that folder to your External HDD with multiman and proceed to the other steps.
    2-open the Param.sfo with an Param.sfo editor , change the category to "DG disc game(Blueray)" and save & remplace.
    3-extract the "Fix pakage" and copy the eboot.bin file
    4-download true ancestor self resigner version 1.91 , paste the eboot.bin file in the same folder with the resigner ,get the game's rap file , (you can find that on psnstuff, or somewhere on the net , if you don't have it sometimes it works without it ) Now put the rap file of the game in the Raps folder (you find that in the true ancestor folder after you extract it),
    5-open true ancestor , click "2" for resign to non Drm eboot , now the eboot is going be resigned , after its done put it back in the game folder where u found it ,and run the whole thing using multiman , with "external" and "Db mirror" options ticked,Now the game plays , enjoy!

    P.s if you have it extracted and runing it shows a black screen then it might be an eboot issue , pm me , i will send you the eboot.bin i resigned (:

    Excuse me Ghassen-ga, you seem to have managed to make a retail iso of attack on titan psn version. If you can, would you tell me where you got the rap file? I seem to be unable to find it in psnstuff+ or anywhere on the internet. Also, since this method is for making an iso, will it be possible to play on an ODE?

    As for this game, I didn't need a rap file I just patched the eboot.bin that was inside the fix pkg, if you want I will send you my eboot file in a pm soon enough, just paste that inside your game folder and play it with multiman, idk how to convert Games into iso because I never needed them, but you can find multiple tutorials online.

    Things are really a hit or miss on converting a psn game to retail.some simple game structure works with simple eboot resigning, some need some hexediting, some need to resign the edat, some dont work at all.

    I remember yakuza 5, that no matter what i do it wont work when converted to retail, so i have to do a franken patch to the japanese retail version so i could play it on ODE, yes psn converted to retail works on ode.

    Thanks for the info, actually for yakuza 5, you can go nnm-club (a russian site) where they are torrenting a yakuza 5 iso us version. I downloaded from there. Or if you like, at maxconsole I asked for the same help with the psn pkg and some members made the game an iso using eboot from the jp version. I think both are worth the shot. Hope you get yakuza 5 working, i loved the game.

    I'm the one who actually made that retail yakuza iso patch for the ODE and posted it there hehe :) the port is not complete yet since I got busy with other translations
    I've heard about this ISO made on a Russian form and also they made a retail version of Life is strange, but never actually fond a link to test it out... wel I found a link for life is strange but it's all dead link. life is strange it's one of those game at also fails a retail conversion.

    Wow, so you're the one, thank you so much. It means a lot to me, because I love the Yakuza series more than any other game. The nnm-club.me website has torrent files for download. So I think the links will be still alive.
