    Similar to how it's available to JTAG'd 360s, will DLC ever be available to PS3 users now? I want my alt costumes on SSVIV! lol

    Wouldn't this be possible if it was just installed as an EBOOT or something that was made to be read by the game it is meant for? Just speculation of course, but once the content is on the main drive, wouldn't even an ISO detect it upon start up?

    I think it'll work eventually there is no reason for it not to be possible.

    My theory is that you can copy over the files in the games\ folder from one PS3 that has the dlc installed into another that doesn't have it. I haven't tried this myself yet however, so I'm not even sure if it'll work. There has been some dlc packages uploaded, but they still need to be activated though. Until someone is able to figure that out, we'll all just have to buy the dlc ourselves.

    I've installed PSN games, yes, but I'm talking about DLC, such as alt costumes for SSFIV, etc.

    In all honesty, anything is possible. Sony can never fully close this flood gate. But if something is possible and if something will actually happen all depends on how much a certain individual will care for it.

    Would be nice. I'd actually love for DLC piracy to become so bad that devs start finishing their games again

    i heard some DLC content needs to sync with your psn account to be activated, so that may be a problem, but the main issue are the backup loaders, they only run the base game, no updates or new content, if u put anything new it fails to load. Well at least now with 3.55 CFW updates are becoming posible, i hope we can get DLC soon, even if i have to pay for them.

    I want my DLC characters for Blazblue CS xD, and the probable upcoming CS2 patch.
