    Can't say I've heard of this until now, and the domain appears to go to a residence... so if it was legit I'd definitely fear Sony's wrath.

    That being said, I know idone said on IRC he was going to mail them about getting a test sample... guess we'll know soon enough.

    this is excellent news and i too am seeing this for the first time knowing that the ps3 indeed is hackable. but as stated, a mod chip definitely isn't worth the risk of having your accounts banned or even worse, have your entire console bricked. chances of this being released without sony doing something about it is 1 in a billion.

    Yeah, well, a few points.

    Of course, I hope its real (who does not?), but seriously - it most likely is not.

    For starters, their own description is quite clunky, but the best parts are below:

    - No awkward USB interface - just insert DVD and play!
    - No external PC/laptop needed
    - Completely upgradeable firmware, via Belzars usb 2.0 interface

    So, you do not need a PC, and there is no USB interface (yes, because USB is soo awkward), but, you can upgrade the FW with USB...

    Furthermore, there are no pictures, or install documents.

    The kicker is that it supports all Region DVD/"Blueray" movies - ironically, the limitation of this is not done in HW, but in Software.

    Finally the whole "copied games" part is funny - how exactly are we copying these games - scene releases will not work, I love how PS3/PS2 disks work, but not PS1 disks (which, in the grand scheme, is the easiest disk to get going) and where are the pictures of the modchip, the install documents, etc?

    Some stuff does not add up, but maybe they, or someone else can prove me wrong!

    hey,
    if its cool, next week can i put up a ps4 modchip that allows you to play Xbox 720 games & can make unicorns appear when you say my name backwards "svdootmi"?

    (I crack myself up)

    more that likely this wont come to pass, as much as i would hope. let see if idone can get confirmation from these guys before anyone screams the "F" word.

    Thumbs Up I think its the real deal

    I do think that this one are for real.

    They are talking about a "Direct Boot" Modchip, maybe the backups are loaded before the console loads the XMB, and maybe the fact is that the mod blocks the XMB. Thats why they are calling "crapy USB", because they dont plan to mess with USB programing too much, maybe because its XMB territory. And they dont talk about any online interactivity, then a assume that its really a "Direct Boot", without calling the XMB, only loading the discs right after the console goes on. I think its the right way, because this way we wont fear any PSN ban.

    I do think that its a "high price" prank to do too, buy a domain just to make a prank? Dont think so. And to finish, think about the time this new are being unleashed! Maybe M$ decide to pay for someone to unleashe this jugernaut of a chip right in time that all the publishers are rejoicing about the price cut... ummm...!

    Sorry about my english guys, and till next time.

    This is too funny. Dont you think with all of that electrical knowledge he would atleast know how to make a better webpage than that pos?

    I dont believe it and nobody else here should... lets face it ... only one person out there has the know how to circumvent sonys protection and thats c4eva.

    Too bad he cant take a little break and investigate the ps3.

    Interesting find, but it's probably sketchy at best. Looks like a template website that isn't fully customized and the links section is unrelated. But ... hopefully they aren't full of it, anything helps. Thanks for the post, had my hopes up for a second there.
