    So it seems that the 3k3y guys have released some more info on their website.
    Along with the info they have released a video of it in action.

    Do we know if the games are backed up in a special way to prevent piracy, or are they just .iso or a similar format?

    If that's the case, I'll have to pick up a GameFly account.

    Since this is the same team that made the x360key, I'd say it's just a bonus feature. As the x360key on Xbox 360 in addition to allowing you to back up games, plays ISOs downloaded from the internet.

    Everything sounded great... until I saw that 3.55 is required...
    Oh well, I guess I'll have to wait longer.

    Hmmm, does this mean that PS2 games can be played on all models, or just the original models?

    going by the assumpion of this being a bluray emulator, the only way ps2 games would be playable is with a ps3 that is ps2 compatible.

    Didn't they release some way to restore software ps2 emulation to all models recently?

    Always going to be able to play downloaded games with these commercial devices. As much as they claim it's for backups, you only have to look around the right forums, to see what most are using them for. Most they ever do is come blank or have something on them that can't be used for piracy and then mysteriously an "unofficial" update appears to enable it.


    PS2 emulator was enabled for all with the Cobra and I think it was enabled with something else for custom firmware without the dongle, but it's crap without the hardware support.

    Nope, it involved changing some system files.

    I wonder if this will still work with a Blu-ray Drive that can't read discs anymore? I mean emulate the disc drive to play backup games of course.

    Kinda pointless if you need firmware which can be soft modded anyway.

    Well if you're already on 4.xx, it's kinda hard to go and change the firmware to extract the keys without additional hardware. Hopefully extracting the keys is made possible for the newer firmwares :3

    So their claim that this works without custom firmware is a load of bollocks?? fair enough, it may be functional on OFW versions *after* the drive key is dumped, but doesn't this still mean that CFW is required to make this device functional on any real level? Have they mentioned anywhere about how long this will take to be usable on 100% virgin ps3's?

    they're probably on about the new 4.21 CFW someone is working on that would allow for key extraction

    There is no such CFW.

    There are no LV2 exploits for >4.20: http://www.ps3hax.ne...e-from-kdsbest/

    ATM there aren't even any exploits for 3.56-4.20 in order to launch Naehrwert's or KDSbest's LV2 code FW upto 4.20.

    Exploits are hampered by the HV.

    Until an exploit (A) can be found, and (B) can get past the HV, no new CFW is happening, and no keys will be extractable for this.

    I am a only a casual spectator of PS3 stuff but I remember watching the presentation from the guys who hacked it and they even got the private keys. This was meant to it, the PS3 blown completely open forever, no way to fix it.
