Sure, this is PS3 news related, but the ONLY reason I and MANY other people come to this site is to find out if I can finally play backups on my PS3. They can send a man to the moon but they can't hack the PS3? Are $ony's and the rest of those company's engineers smarter than the ones at NASA?
Or is the "scene" just taking too long trying to think of a way to cash in on the hack?
I know this was the case for the new Lite-on Xbox360 drive. Instead of releasing the 1.5fw as soon as, or a short while after completion, they make a "solution" but it requires you to purchase a tool and have a spare benq drive. Then once they make enough money, the easy, no-cost hack is released.
And guys, when you finally decide to let us be able to play backups, please let us be able to load the games from a hard drive. This is part of the reason why the hack is not being released sooner. Blank blu-ray media is expensive and so are the writers.
And yes, I know I'm lucky to be getting anything at all. I'm just ranting.
