So, where will i start....

Basically, a bunch of hackers have found a way around the PS3's firmware protection and have created a mod-chip so you can play pirate games. This mod-chip is a USB device which doesn't need installing, which is great because you can go back to playing normal games online once you've taken it out!

What does it do?
It allows you to run ripped games which are on your hard-drive by using a disc as boot device. I'm not very good at explaining this so just watch it in action.



This is good if you have a large HDD in your PS3 obviously, because you can make the most of it.

Oh and also apparently it blocks Firmware updates whilst still being able to go Online, so you wouldn't have to worry about it not working one day when turning on your system!

I normally wouldn't consider going pirate, but this is pretty appetising don't you think?

Well it was until i saw the price tag of it...

I'm highly skeptical about the fact that it allows the player to go online and at the same time block firmware updates. Even if it could trick the hardware to report an updated OS the features/code would be different for each update.

That's true. If you did waste money on this. what if you took it out one day and accidentally except a firmware update... then your money is wasted.

The only way you could 'accidentally' accept a firmware update is if you have PS+ and have it automatically update/download while you sleep. If that's the case, just deactivate it. From then on, you'll be prompted to upgrade - just say no and proceed to boot from the USB pen. Pretty simple really.

What I'd rather do is get an xbox 360 like my mate did. He paid about £100 for a used one, gets his copies on xbox and then uses his ps3 to lose to me on fifa. its win/win, I even considered it myself but Im skint(as always)

Have a look around on eBay and you could probably find a modded (used) Xbox 360 for £40. My sister managed to get one for around £45 and can get games for it at £2-£3 a pop. I'm considering getting one myself.

I don't think its not possible to not update your system, but you can't play online without having the right system data.. so i doubt you can use this mod to play online with. Or if you can, it won't work with the next .01 update.

Maybe they used a similar hack to that of the PSP firmware hacks. Where you download the firmware update as normal, but the hacked one it the master firmware yet it emulates the official firmwares if that makes sense...
