A few days ago a former member of Team ICE released a video showing him playing a backup on his PS3. Today he revealed how he did this.
That's right, you have a littlebigflop, you could take pills to be larger.
little big flop is what girls called him in bed lmao
Wow you guys owned him.
WOW that was nice
"LittleBigFlop?" I hate you.
who cares, a bunch of sad people trying to hack the ps3. Id never hack mine, its too valuable and games will be/are like 50gb lol - point?
I would buy a PS3 if I can play backed up games on them. I recently did this to my PSP and love the fact that I can put the game into my memory stick and download games as well.. So if there's a way we can play backed up games from the PS3 hard drive I would be all over it. Then I can just rent games or borrow games from friends and put in my hard drive.
@jaysquared: You are whats wrong with the world today.
Go ahead and do that man, there's only one problem -- where's all the space? You're going to get a max of like 4 games IF that on your HDD -- that's the problem. Go ahead and rent/burn/pirate whatever you may call it, but in the end you're gonna have to choose to buy it or delete it, so I tell you once more, go ahead.
This is retarded. Does this guy know you can already install Warhawk on the PS3's hard drive? What he did was clone the exact same hard drive and swapped it before loading the game. Why the hell would you swap the hard drive with another identical/cloned hard drive? It's basically the same as not swapping, therefore it's still legal and not a way to bypass the Hypervisor. This guy got no where again. Clowns I tell you.
If he bothered to look up info about Warhawk, the game fully installs to your harddrive (with the exception of the bonus crap the BD has over the PSN version). However, it does not install a file that lets you start up the game from the XMB, whereas the PSN version includes that file. If you put in your Warhawk disk, it will check the disc, and start up the game. At that point you can now eject Warhawk, stick it in your friends machine, and he can play with your copy of Warhawk. Once he shuts down the game though, he can't start it again without a Warhawk disc. It's a feature. The hack, solved in a nutshell, but without any difficulties like cloning or swapping.
Kids should be banned from using the internet, all kids.
Lame ass thieves, go get jobs and buy your games instead of trying to ruin the industry.
Less piracy, more jobs, investments and lower prices. Piracy is also one of the most used way to finance crime business like drug dealing, etc...
do you seriously think that everyone I have ever met who sell games/films are generally normal people who just want to make a bit of money not gangsters besides the people who are drug dealers actually fund the drug dealing by SELLING THE DRUGS.
are people to poor to buy there own games....get a job....and get a life
and get a girl while your at it
what is these girls you talk about? do they got 4 legs and hair everywhere, cause i had one of those once
no, i believe a girl is something that has buttons on it that you press to make something/someone move.
Or poor people should NEVER enjoy HD gaming??? And yes, there are MANY countries, where average monthly salary is 200-300 euro. They do have a JOB, but it`s not their fault, that it`s paid so low. p.s. oh, you are from NA, now it`s clear, why you wrote such bullshit. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Very good point sir. The "youtube" video is spot on.
Not all, plain rice is from NA and he could feel offended even though he seems reasonable. But then... He could be Canadian :D
Gaming isn't a right. If you can't afford to buy games, you really shouldn't be buying them. But thats a universal truth that applies to everything in life. Housing/Toys/Cars/Food. There is always rental, which is quite cheap. Or saving up to buy used games. And how these poor people, these poor poor people manage to buy ps3's and HDTV's boggles my mind.
@crazyman, that was totally worth the click so thanks for that @Young Puzzle, OWNED!! but seriously with stupid comments like yours you should expect nothing less
CrazzyMan LOL, that was a funny video, some really stupid people in there. Very good laugh. I know that this youtube video does not represent the USA as a whole, there are some brilliant brains in the US, but it was damn funny to see so many air heads.
As much as I dislike CViper, I have to agree...gaming is a hobby, a past-time, not a right, a necessity, or in any way apart of why the general consensus pays taxes, votes, or maintains an occupation. That was a very funny video, thanks for that...however I, and a majority of the people I know, could have answered those questions, punctually, precisely, elaborately, and correctly... So as with any other region of the world, what you have here is proof, that it's extremely difficult, to keep unintelligent people off of the television.
Quid pro quo. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I live in Brazil, a poor country. People here make less than $200 USD per month to live in average. Our tax system make a game to cost 150% more than in Europe or US. I am lucky to often travel overseas to get my games. But when a new one is out and I want to play ASAP, I buy it for $120 USD. The Piracy in under development countries (and also in developed ones) is the #1 source of funds to drug dealers. We should look at piracy an indicator to changes things with all players of the value chain, starting helping people to get social inclusion.
thz for the vid - it was funny xD +Bubbles
Ha, that video was hilarious, and so was the British one but as a poster above me said, it doesn't represent the population as a whole.
Just quit your bithin. All this "thieves!", "poor" people!" make me sick. There are people who can't afford games or don't want to pay for them. And that makes them worse? All you bithin' people are pathetic. In some places new games cost 80-100usd, yes, 100usd! And it's no sh*t, I can show you where. Would you buy games for 100 bucks with salary equal to 400 or 500usd per month? I seriously doubt it. So quit yappin and get a brain.
Actually I think this was just for the thrill. Like thieves wanting to break into a so called "Thief proof bank" A test of their skill, more or less.
agree but hey even if the game was 15 bucks worldwide, people would still pirate the game.
And that somehow makes it OK? I live in UK, we get price gouged in the name of tax and shipping costs (Rock Band being one example). Salaries are similar in Europe and US. By your logic it'd be fine to steal these games because I pay more than the US, because it's a higher % of my monthly salary? At what point is it OK to steal? When a game costs 10% of your monthly salary? 11%, 15%? Would you want your hard work stolen just because someone somewhere thought it cost too much? A game is a luxury item. If someone can afford a PS3 and an HDTV then I would have thought they could afford a game every now and again! If people can not afford it then I say too bad - or wait for it to hit a price point they can afford (2nd hand, on budget label, borrowed form a friend). The argument 'I was never going to buy the game anyway so the developer lost nothing' doesn't wash - it's stealing.
I cant afford a porsche 911. I think i'll just go steal one because it costs too much.
That is how much would cost console games in my country considering, that salary numbers are equal to Ireland or UK.
If you cant pay, you shouldnt play. If you take something without paying for it you are a thief, you can try to justify it however you like, but if you steal something you are a thief plain and simple. It doesnt matter that its too expensive or badly priced, it's still stealing if you pirate it. I would love to see one of you people who try to allways justify your theft, go into a normal business and steal something. Then tell the cops that 'it was too much, so it's ok'. Just because you cant see who your stealing from, doesnt mean you arent a criminal.
Once you can make unlimited free copies of something, it is automatically devalued. That's what happened to the painters when photography was invented. Now they call them starving artists, but you don't see them crying. If poor people are playing free video games they'll be too busy to break into your house.
it`s not about stealing, it`s about looking for alternatives, when something is OVERPRICED. btw, pirating - when you sell not by you made software. SHARING - is NOT pirating. So it`s not stealing, get lost. anyway, price should be comparable to people salary. People would DIE from hungar, if it wouldn`t. p.s. and you can not steal intellectual property, whatever you say.))
games price should be decreased...in my county the average yearly income is about 800 $. thats about 70$ a month. so how are we going to buy original games ?
How much do used systems and games cost? At my local Gamestop, I could buy a gamecube for $25.00, an original Xbox for $39.00, and used games for these systems generally run from $.99-$19.99... you might look into importing, or even ebay...all I'm saying is, if annual income there is that low in the bracket, you should look outside of the retail chains for cheaper alternatives...I still buy Xbox 1 games, all the time for $5.00.
Sorry, but i have zero tolerance for people claiming games are to expensive cause of a $800 av. yearly salary while talking about a $499 Gamesystem they would have to buy BEFORE. If you can buy a $499 Console, you can also afford the $60 games.
If you read his process I think he maybe could have done it but I wouldnt go through all that trouble and is useless because you still need the original disc. I guess its good if you got a friend who buys everything and you can borrow his game and get it or you rent games and to it.
Life is not fair, get over it. If you can't afford to buy games then you likely have much bigger problems you should be worrying about. I earn a pretty decent wage and I can't go out and buy all the latest games. I can't afford to buy a Ferrari but it doesn't make it right or ethical for me to go out and steal one. Piracy is theft plain and simple. Piracy kills a format so for the few pirates the majority suffer in the end. There are plenty of options such as buying games cheap on Ebay for example. I'm sure Sony will do all they can to stay one step ahead of these people.
psx, ps2, ds. Modchips, exploits R4. Still doing well. PSP is still being a victim but it needs more quality software. About piracy on X360, most of people I know and have X bought it because of backup possibility. So that leads to conclusion... PS3 is doing freaking well without piracy in selling hardware. Back on topic. Pirating PS3 will be as hard as on PS2 at the beginning. Bluray discs and writers aren't as cheap as DVDs now so It'll need some time to bloom. In some countries downloading BD games is a little bit masochist cause of internet bandwidth so it isn't that easy here. No worries for about year, maybe two I think.
You can't denounce Piracy into a "Black-White" scenario. There are reasons and everyone has a different one; coming from different backgrounds.
Piracy is theft, there is no grey area. If you can afford the PS3 and TV in the first place then save your money for your games as they are released. People need a reality check, you can't afford the latest game? tough! its a luxury item, there are some people in the world that can't afford medication to keep them alive.
Can you also say "theft" is justified? Theft is more than just games and software. It's also weapons, money, medicine, land and nuclear power. Theft isn't a "grey" area. It's black-and-white. Stealing games is bad, but stealing military secrets to protect your own country isn't? Or is it? Can you answer that if you're the one deciding it? It's not that simple. Piracy may be simple enough, but 'theft' is another subject I hope you're ready to defend to the death about. Otherwise don't make blanket statements like that because people who don't live in the sunny USA see it the same way you do about "grey" areas so easily.
When you steal a ferrari, someone loose a ferrari, when a guy who can't afford games download it, nobody is loosing something.
The first step towards Homebrew is enabling Unsigned-code to be run. Everything else is history.
most of you guys are some dumb fawks! This is not about stealing, piracy or any other bullshit, this is for creating BACKUPS! If i buy a game for $100, i have the rights to create a working backup in case my copy gets fawked.
Creating backs, yeah right! thats the excuse used by the people hacking the XBOX. The PSN allows you to re-download content and the Ps3 has a backup utility so no need for hacks.
@10.1 This isnt about backing up saved content, but the entire game disc. And no, the PS3 doesn't do that.
In these DRM times I'm not sure you have the right to backup your discs - in fact In these DRM times it's sometimes hard to tell if you really own the disc you paid for!! :( Anyway, I see your point, but I think we all know that for every legit person wanting to protect their property there will be thousands using back ups for illegal means.
You agree to a EULA when you run the game, read it.
@10.3 What they should do, is code all the games so the first time a disc is inserted into a console, the discs key is bound to your PSN user. If the game is inserted in a console with a different user, it just pops up with an error.. That way you could easily create backups without the companies worrying of people copying and selling it to other ppl.
if games were coded as you said it would put an end to trading in games, buying used games and for the people who could hardly afford used games in the first place will have no chance of buying new games. funny enough your idea would increase game piracy and the pirates would have a legit (albeit still illegal) reason to steal games
@10.6 its commonly known that game developers hate the idea that people use buyback and trade games amongst eachother. If codes were put in the games in a non-crackable but fully backup supporting way, it would decrease piracy.
The game disc being tied to the PS3 was a story bandied about before the PS3 launched and it didn't go down well. People were concerned about not being able to take a game to a friends house and play it there but then you could just log in with your account on their machine but then if you wanted to pirate the game why not just make an account and pass it on with that users account. You could pass on a whole 320GB HDD full of games linked to one disposable PSN account as it costs nothign to set one up. Of course you could tie the disc to the Playstation hardware but then you stop people being able to take games to a friends house to play.
@10.8 "but then if you wanted to pirate the game why not just make an account and pass it on with that users account You could pass on a whole 320GB HDD full of games linked to one disposable PSN account as it costs nothign to set one up" My idea is flawless from the viewpoint of the developer. All games are locked to your PSN account, so you are the only one able to log in and start a game. If you want to play at your friends house you can log into your user from his/her PS3, and still enjoy multiplayer/gaming with friends. sure, your friend could still log into your account, but you can only use one account one space at a time, so you and your friend can be on the same account simultaneously.
"My idea is flawless from the viewpoint of the developer" there lies the problem, everyone else will lose out. places like gamestop would only be able to sell new games which i can only imagine would cut heavily into there profit and of course we the gamers lose even more by having to buy full priced games every single time not being able to trade in games etc... basically to many people lose out for your idea to work
@10.8 > No its not flawless from the developers point of view as you can still make a free PSN ID, fill a HDD full of your backed up games and then pass it on to someone else who gets a HDD full of free games, all he has to do is log in with the PSN username the pirate supplies him with when he buys the HDD full of backups. @10.9 > The likes of Gamestop (and GAME and Gamestation here in the UK) have RRP's from the publisher, no publisher is going to have their sales dented by a computer store selling for over their RRP. The stores will lose out as people will just shop online and quite frankly they would deserve to lose sales after years of ripping off gamers by paying out for example £15 for a title on trade in and then putting that same game back on the shelf at just £2 under the brand new price.
stop preaching(to the choir) and read the source. Its the best joke I have read all day. Silly "hackers".
I don't think it's possible to run hacked games on the ps3 yet but you guys do know that it is possible to run burned bluray movies on the ps3? It's a complicated process but it works flawlessly. My buddy already has a collection of 20+ burned bluray discs that all work perfectly on the ps3.
you just have to have a extra hard drive or just buy a 80 gig 2.5 sata hard drive which will be about close to 2 or 3 blu-ray games. This is just an exploit guys. He even say it's just an exploit and now that he has posted his method, Sony will release a firmware update blocking this. Just buy your games man. If you want to play games for free and burn the industry then buy a 360. Hell they already have the new dashboard before it was even released.
Because sony and microsoft have been able to block hacks with firmware updates before... Not condoning piracy, but get real... once they hack the system its all over.
he didn't accomplish anything. -.-
