Macworks undertook the painful process of modifying his PS3 in order to provide it with a rear USB mod for use with the Playstation Eye. After searching high and low for instructions, he decided to just go ahead and perform the mod himself.
Nice, but you won't see me doing that. Bad experience with a PS2.
i want this guy to do my 40gb when i get it i want like at least 2 ports (if possible 4 would be good)
Screw that, I can just buy a USB hub and plug it in the front and bring it to the back, I don't mind one cable showing up.
yeah i was thinking of doing that, i have the 40GB SKU and i use things like the controller wire to recharge, a USB keyboard, the recharger wire for my bluetooth headset and WAS (not to sure now) going to hook up an external HDD. thing is with the recharger wire for my headset its really small and different to the controller one (the headset i got with Warhawk) so i need to keep it attached otherwise could loose it lol
it would have been nice to have a single USB port in the back, like originally planned...only for a HDD or something permanent hooked up...but yeah...its not that big of a deal...My PS3 is on a desk packed with all kinds of crap, you can barely see it anyway...I don't mind a always coming out of the front...
What a waste of time,loser,,go do something productive instead,I see no benefit from this besides wasting my time and losing chunks of time from my life ill never get back.. Go detonate some I.E.D's or something loser.
I love you too
Meh. That's why we have USB Hubs. Considering how much Minimum Wage is in America, you could make enough to get a decent hub in two or three hours---which, judging from the complexity of this project, would be much less time than spent on modding this. XD I mean, having a USB input back there would be sweet...but is it worth the effort? I doubt it, unless you live on your PS3.
If you don't know what you're doing, don't even bother.

Ready for surgery! Now, where do I cut first?
Still, this is an extreme mod. They should have been less picky about cords in the front.
ppl you miss the point! he did something which no1 wud dream of. I welcome that creativity! its like modifying your car to do sumthing the designers didnt put it! Well done! All u losers who think its waste of time are stupid as kids who wud buy money if it was on sale! dam jackasses!
No way would I do that! Very cool :)
there is a vertical stand they sell on ebay that gives you two ports in the back of the system. I got it so the two dongles that come with guitar hero are in the back instead of hanging out of the front,plus it turns one usb port into two.the only thing is that the system has to stand up but I heard that standing up the system is better any way so the heat comes out faster.Plus the stand has a blue glowing light around the system that makes it look cool.You just have to search for ps3 usb hub
All he did was buy bumpers put them on the bottum of the ps3 and get a usb extender and put the usb cord under the ps3! With a usb hub at the end. If you are gonna comment at least look at the thing first.
i saw the wrong video.
nice and simply then . i got 5 minutes i might just go and do it now .............................. .... or maby not !!!
