wow really tempted to download this, I have a 60GB model just like his so it would work....but...the risk of getting my PS3 banned for life is totally not worth it since I play CoD4/R2 alot online. Not to mention KZ2 coming out soon. Yep tempting, but no thanks.

not sure if u would get banned i just think they will do a firmware upgrade

Need a Japanese PS3 anyways.

Cant they make some homebrew that doesnt need a swap magic disc, but as long as they dont pirate PS3 games im not fussed. PS2 software discs are gradually falling in sales and have sold what they are going to, so this isnt really hurting anyone. Plus you can use your original PS2 disc to create backups.

If Sony could make an official way of loading your PS1/PS2 games to hardrives it would be brilliant.

For everything else there is master card. You can buy a ps2 with swap magic for only $150 and that ends all the fuss.

The cost of CogSwap... priceless. Seriously though, its free. ^_^

Japanese console only and a new firmware is coming in a matter of hours.

Kushan4663d ago

The new firmware likely wont fix this. The 2.60 firmware will have been completed weeks ago, long before this was announced because they have to do lots of testing and such. If it IS possible to fix this (As I believe it's exploiting the PS2 stuff), expect it to be fixed with a 2.61 update.
