This is cool! Any word on that ps3 controller port? Haha
I'd think this was rather obvious? It's basically like using an external harddrive but on a disc.
Anyone confirm any working games? Going to try a small one with a DVD and see..
I'm wondering how/why this works when the backup manager says it requires a REAL game in the disc drive if you want to load a backup copy of a game. Do you still need to insert a legit game at some point? Such as putting a real game into the PS3 before swapping it for a backup copy?
backup manager doesn't even recognize the burnt disc. how could this be real? Tried 3d Dot heroes, nothing showed up in the backup manager.
FYI - this same article has been posted on several websites and no one except for the original source (Jamal94) and 1 other person (Rmoroz) have claimed to have gotten this to work. Every other attempt has resulted in decorative coasters.
I wouldn't suggest trying this (for now) until it's confirmed by more people unless you have media to waste.
ramensama, i tried 3D Dot Game Heroes too. I started the Backup Manager, put the DVD in and nothin happened. quit BUM. Then put the DVD first into the PS3, then started the BUM... and then it comes to screen as "dev_bdvd" or something like that. i had the game on my int hdd before and so i want to start it... and then comes the massage: Eboot.bin is not valid, cant load.
