    I'm a bit skeptical about this is real still though, even if an admin posted it and some people have confirmed it. Something feels a bit off...

    I'd also like everyone to keep in mind that this NOT a normal USB flash drive and that it has other components in the hardware that is needed for it to work.

    If it really works I have to get a PS3, before they do something to fix it! [​IMG]

    I'm almost convinced. I just need to see a game running.

    I think the time has finally come, still a little bit pricey, $119.99.

    This was posted before like maybe a year ago. The device is a farce. Doesn't work. Now if this is something else and it works GREAT!!! However, I believe it's in the same genre as the device that came before it. I believe psp-hacks.com and even gbatemp.net had information on it. You can search and find it probably. It came from like South Africa or some crap.

    Pricey? hardly, considering i paid $95 for my wiiclip+d2pro9, $250 for my original xbox to be chipped and around $120 for my ps1 to get chipped. its actually quite cheap considering the price of modchips and the fact you don't even need to open up the ps3. people have just been spoiled by the easiness of the wii/ds/psp.

    I'd be willing to bet my cock and balls this is real, and if it is it is it was probably rushed a little bit because c4eva and Team Jungle are jumping on the PS3 hacking scene. [​IMG]

    the latest update already allows them to modify devices and data without consent
    so they can just release another update to detect and corrupt the device and delete any data that it installed

    If it's just a USB stick, can't you just get the files somewhere, put them on any old USB stick, and get this for free? Or would it be all formatted weird and whatnot?

    it claims it plays import games, yet the ps3 does this by default
    its region free

    only ps1, ps2, dvd, and blu-ray (movies) are region locked
