    I don't understand what's happening in the video [​IMG]

    Anyway, PS3 hack would be useful if it could load images from the HD, Blu ray recorders are still too expensive, and so are the writable discs.. not to mention downloading a 50GB ISO.. [​IMG]

    They aren't that expensive, $200 for a blu-ray burner that also reads every other format ever made and $10 or less per disk

    I was going to argue that but I realised that anyone who can afford a ps3 could probably afford that too.

    disconvenient ??

    what the heck kinda word is that !!??

    I've heard of Inconvenient but never disconvenient ??


    great news but as above impractical (would of been a better wording) due to the expense of media [​IMG]

    Well the hack is for running games off of the HDD, so either way, I wouldn't think it seems impractical to have to use writable media.

    I have my doubts on this hack though...and some of those people posting on maxconsole seem like idiots...

    I've read that it only works for old games though, not some of the newer ones.

    i still think this is complete BS, you know how many videos appear on youtube claiming to play "backups" and turn out to be a hoax.

    Hopefully something comes of this, There have been a few members of the psp scene confirming that this is indeed working and will hopefully lead to something good!!

    PS3 would be a monster if fully hacked. BC models in particular.

    Region free PS1/PS2/DVD/Blu-Ray, burned PS1/PS2/PS3, no more mandatory HDCP on HDMI/DVI connections, 1080p via component for DVD/Blu-Ray, complete Linux hardware access...

    Yeah, truly outstanding hardware but annoying artificial restrictions placed on it (as usual for consoles).

    I bought mine for backwards compatibility.
