    my ps3 has been hacked for awhile now. it may not look nice but all i wanted to do was play my backup ps2 games after my chipped ps2 slim died.

    basically all you do is rip the top off your ps3 and take the cover off the cd drive and boot up a ps2 game and when the ps3 confirms a ps2 game is in the system take the cog off and swap it for a back-up ps2 game and replace the cog and press X to start....

    good for playing backup ps2 games but i think thats about it.
    It may work with backup ps3 games but i have no blu-ray burner or blank blu-ray ( i can't afford that )

    i have the latest firmware on my ps3 and i can still play my ps2 backups *shrug*

    that's a bit harsh for a bit of ps2 action

    is it a launch 60Gb then?
    you have had no issues with it?
    any photos/video?

    i only ask because i'm on my third ps3 (2 with blu-ray read failure 1 with yellow death) they don't tend to last long, i have mates who have had more than me. Sony uk have started charging 130 quid for a recon unit in return with 3 months warrantee. quite steep especially as you can get a slim for a 120 extra with 12 months warrantee and 120Gb hdd.

    if you are polite but very firm and can argue, be put on hold, argue your case a bit more, hold, transferred, argue same case again, hold/transferred/repeat yourself........ you get the idea! they will eventually do it for free (or did for my last one)

    as for a iso loading chip or CFW, it does appear to be a tough cookie to crack. but never say never!


    Why are you reading this? its always the same!!

    Playstation already learn their lesson with people hacking PS1. I think Nintendo learned their lesson this time around. They would have to fix the issues with Wiitoo (I should copyright this!!!! LOL!)

    I'm not exactly sure why Sony is silly to be honest. IMO Sony produce the best consoles on the market without doubt. I have the 360, and it doesn't come close to the PS3. The PS2 is still an amazing machine, take FFXII for example on the PS2. Sweet! The PSP is also an amazing console, we have 3 of the blighters in the house!

    It is only a matter of time before someone does crack the PS3. It took a while for the PSP to be cracked, but when it was the updates for the CFW were coming thick and fast and more crackers hit the scene.

    The PS3 is no exception. Sure it is proving difficult to crack right now, but thats only because the best hackers created the security features for them. It WILL be cracked. As to when, who is to say.

    The fact that the Wii can be Softmodded is great, but it is an oversight for Nintendo. In time they will release a new console to attempt to irradicate the Piracy of software, but until then there will just be FW updates and someone will just keep fiding work arounds.

    Bide your time, everything can be modded. It just takes time lol.
