    Of course reading off their website is a little tricky with the broken english. Does the new version 1.1 not require an original game disc now? If thats the case I assume I can use a PS3 that has a broken laser that doesn`t read discs and run everything off USB and/or hard drive?

    Correct, they've updated their payload so the 1.1 break doesn't need a disc in the drive.

    I can't upgrade. I have tried on two different computers. The program wont find by break when I click upgrade. Anyone else have this problem?

    So in theory I could use the broken PS3 I have (laser broken? doens`t read discs).......but the only down side of doing this is I of course can`t rip games.
