    I really hope this is because I may actually get a ps3 now if it truly can play all ps2 games original or backup. That is what I have wanted to be able to do for so long, I mean the ps3 games are good but the ps2 games are still good at the same time.

    This will give the PS3 a huge boost sale. (The only reason I bought my PS2 was because I could mod it)

    A Blu-ray burner and blu-ray discs...which will cost you $200+ to acquire both if you don't have them...which most people don't.

    Why the hell do people spell Blu Ray as Blueray, learn to effing spell it (especially article writers). Blu Ray burners are still a bit pricey, 3x the price of a DVD RW burner with Light Scribe, however having a PS3 modchip would probably bolster the sales of burners.

    Absolute Fail

    First of all most PS3s have no PS2 backwards capability save for the 20 and 60 gb versions. Also there`s a PSP for PS1 games. The glory of the PS3 has died because of this, why don`t people understand that some tech should not be hacked. I just think this is crossing the line not to mention highly unreasonable because most of the features can either be done on other consoles or just highly unnecessary.

    I`m just saying this really didn`t need to happen.

    15 disc's cost about about $42

    but it beats paying $60 "per game"

    Too fake and and if it isn't the only cheap features are the ones that don't let you play ps3 games.

    ...you don't keep up with the prices of Blu-ray disc do you? If THAT was the price, it would be about the same price as DVD+DL (which is use for Xbox 360). DVD+DL run for 25 to 35 for a 10 disc pack of GOOD quality media. As for Blu-ray, the actual price of a 10 pack STARTS at around 50 dollars and can go up to 70 dollars. Your statement of it being expensive still stands, is just more expensive than what you think actually xP

    I am refering to GOOD quality disc for that price, not one that will most likely end up being a cluster of disk (if you want that kind. You can indeed find some 10 packs for 20 to 25 dollars and other higher quantity packs for cheap...I just don't trust them personaly. Bought a pack once of low-quality brand DVD-DL...none of them worked)

    You gotta take in the fact that the huge amount of bandwidth you're killing for downloading a bluray game, the success rate of burning a game, and the time consumption of downloading and burning as well.

    ------------------

    I don't think it's worth modding the Ps3 if its only for pirating. Ps3 sales are already so poor. It might boost Ps3 sales, but it doesn't guarantee quality games or squeals which is the reason why we play games.

    I really hope this doesn't overkill the Ps3.

    I am not affected by wasted bandwidth because I have no limit, im am constantly downloading 360 games, as well as PS2 and PSP
    so its nothing new to me, + it should the games only without the padding attached so it wont be a 25GB download for every game, probably around 10GB avg for alot of the games


    even if you wasted all but one disk which was a sucessful burn, you still profited from it because you saved $17+tax

    It would suck if it messed up in the burning process. There goes X amount of money.

    btw, X => price of DVD+DL, X is element of real numbers

    blu ray burner = 190$
    15 blu ray disks = 99$
    Total = 289$ + tax

    15 Ps3 games = ~60$ each = 900$
    i think its fair..
