PS2 Backups now running on PAL PS3's

The hacker ifcaro first released away to boot PS2 backups on only NTSC/Jap PS3's and now he released his method for PAL PS3's too.

The story is too old to be commented.

To the ones reporting this as piracy.... A Backup officially ain't piracy. A backup is a safety copy from the original one owns. Its making sure something you buy will be protected from scratches on discs etc etc.

You can say all you want, but this is just news.

then you agree with the Xbox360 "backups"?

Danja4616d ago

well ur gonna be missing out on the best shooter of the year in one month..XD

you realize sony will fix this hole with their next firmware upgrade..

barakiu4616d ago

shop S-mart?

for all those people that'll say support the developers, I say support the starving instead, at least 20,000 a day. the developers, they'll live.

the way I see it, even as it is now with fully featured browser games emerging, video games will go the way of cable televison with a set charge for consistent online servers for multiplayer with unlimited access of games, the only thing thats missing from a pirates life.
(and then they'll have to compete with free services that make their dollar on advertisements.) the tech is now there to make this possible.

you could argue that one should pay for cable tv instead of wiring the cable box for free cable to support the providers for more original television content. Or critize one who uses their neighbors wi-fi connection instead of buying their own...for some reason or another. :)

my point is, there are so many free games to play now, and I don't believe that hype (i'm looking at you generic soulless shooting someone in the head is "Mature".."hard core" even..[Puyo Pop is hardcore] .) someone looking to play would only need a console/pc and roms.

pc gaming isn't dead.

pc gaming has changed.

'console' wars (will) have changed.

God never changes. may Jesus bless you in your soul.

...there were several "promotes piracy" comments. That may be true, but I'm interested in this purely from a convenience standpoint. Bring on the US version!

solidsnakus4616d ago

the jap version is the usa version. it works.

cayal4616d ago

Of course it promotes privacy.

LeeZer4616d ago

firstly this won't mess up your ps3, secondly i dought sony will completely fix this as they have never managed to stop swap magic disks from working and all this is don't is enabling a piece of eggsisting ps2 software work on the ps3 with virtual memory cards

cayal4616d ago Go back to school and learn to put together a proper sentence.

First of all, swap magic was a PS2 method. PS2s didn't have firmware updates. PS3s do.

Second, this promotes piracy.

Bathyj4616d ago

I not the sort that picks people up on bad spelling or grammer normally cos we all do it, but "eggsisting".

Haha. Thats the funniest thing I've seen this year. Trust me Dude, I'm laughing WITH you.
