    Yes, you heard me correctly.
    It seems that PS4 backups has already surfaced on various torrent sites.
    KillZone and Knack have been reported to be 37.4 GB and 39.3 GB as well as some other PS4 games.

    They come in a single package file (eg. Killzone.pkg) and a RIF file for activating the content.

    Battle field 4 and AC4 have also been spotted online.
    Seems that the only thing left is a CFW for the pirates.

    Well, if it's in straight BD format, it doesn't surprise me that you could just pop one of them into a BD-ROM drive and rip them. PLAYING those backups, on the other hand (or doing ANYTHING with them, including verifying that they're really legit/intact) is quite another story.

    Do we have confirmation there are no hidden partitions or that raw LBA reads did not return again? If not/also what Maxternal said.

    Even if there are hidden partitions, wouldn't a proper dd on the entire disk copy that over too? But yeah, I also heard from someone else who tried a PS4 disk in his PC and it was completely readable. It's just that these dumps will be useless for a long, long time.

    Right behind you
    I have to agree with the above. Doing a raw dump of a disc really proves nothing. Assuming there not one of the countless fakes, I'm sure you can't just put these on your ps4s hard drive and play them. Or well, do anything at all with them.

    I can verify that 'certain' Blu-ray drives can read PS4 disc (assumingly the same ones that could read the PS3 discs), the Asus BW-12B1ST and Lite-On iHBS212 being examples (as I have them both).

    I think it's pretty safe to say that Sony has learned a ton with the fiasco that came about with the PS3 scene and I have no doubt it will be quite some time before we see any usefulness to any of these backups.

    Who cares about CFWs, the ultimate thing will be a wrapper for your home computer to run PS4 games. Both have the same underlying architecture, and who knows, you might end up being able to build an homemade PS4 just by buying an AMD Jaguar APU with a Radeon GPU.

    That would be the next frontier of piracy - PIRATING THE CONSOLE ITSELF.

    I had thought emulation would be the next to take advantage of things stuck in PCI slots and FPGAs being programmed to be the thing from the original console but clearly I was not forward thinking enough.

    That will take a day and a fourth to download

    What I want to see is the console being hacked so I can run emulators preferably Saturn and Dreamcast emulators.

    Yeah, I would only use any hacks this gen for emulating old consoles and homebrew.

    Wow... they couldn't even wait for the launch? That's brutal (but not as brutal as the GBA SDK being leaked and subsequently the first emulator being released on launch week)

    Just one (slightly off-topic) question: I presume the Wii U discs are physically Blu-Ray, for obvious economic reasons. How hard was ripping those, compared to a conventional BD disc? Was it as easy as with this case?

    I forgot
    Meh, was to be expected. I mean, they are just BluRay discs after all. The real challenge is running backups on the PS4 lol.

    Err...this isn't all that much brutal, seeing how they're just BluRay Discs like PS3 games before it.

    Wii U discs use their own format (Wii U Optical Disk is what they're officially called IIRC), though they're fairly similar to BluRay (being developed by Panasonic and all). No idea if they've been successfully ripped yet or not (I don't really keep up too much with the Wii U hacking scene"), but a quick search on various sites shows there aren't many reliable rips of any Wii U game out yet.
