i'm a little curious - i thought the point was to be able to play back up or different region games, although i'm under the impression that ps3 games aren't region locked anyway. as long as your tv is doing HD or supports pal/ntsc then it will work anyway.
so until someone with a backup blu-ray disc can get it to load, that will be cool
hey pocyion, what are you confirming works? swapping a legit game for another legit game works? or that it crashes the system? cause apparantly in fw 1.1 it will allow you to load motostorm - which is awesome news - but does it crash fw 1.6?
I have tested this on NTSC PS3 FW1.31. I swapped RfoM with Virtual Tennis 3 (U.S.), which wouldn't load before (VT3 says it needed 1.32 or later). I can now finally play my VT3, which was collecting dust!
Guys heres another update from a 'tester': "that’s awesome!!! The whole thing is working perfectly – my fault didn’t read your post correctly. Instead of pressing “save and quit” in game menu I was pressing PS button and leaving game! So I can confirm that loophole in Fall of Man is working, at least on my setup: PAL PS 3 with FW 1.51. Couldn’t play Scrolls of Oblivion – requires 1.54 upgrade, but when done through Fall of Man works superb. THANKS!!!"
