I followed closely this forum and chose not to post ... But on a sidenote, this looks very, very close to the Belzar Modchip...
With a little imagination and some time to spare someone could put up a scam like this in no time... But as it stand it looks pretty good!
The problem as I see it: The windows interface took time to realize, and why, oh why would someone bother to mimic Windows on a PS3? It would of been much simpler to create a simpler interface, not mimic a window, but best of all, not the windows is my problem, but the BUTTONS!!! LOOK at the buttons (NEXT, EXIT), how well are they mimicking windows buttons!! Would any of the hardcore programmers here would go trough all that trouble?!?! I sure as hell wouldn't!!!
And the icing on the cake with this:
1. EVERYONE GO TO YOUR PS3!
2. Type some text anywhere in XMB, the browser, the game demo info, anywhere!!
3. Have you noticed the way the soft keyboard pops and exits from view?!? Well that is probably some core function, and there is no reason for the soft Keyboard used by the Zpack not to act EXACTLY like that!!!
4. HAVE YOU EVER seen the SOFT KEYBOARD just FADE into view?!?! I don't!
Want my opinion?? A VERY GOOD FAKE! think, watch and have your own conclusion! I don't know about you but 200 Euros is more than some people get for a month work here so... want to order it?! Go ahead! as long as you reply here so that no one else is gonna get scammed!

Clearly a well done fake. Sure someone go ahead and prove me wrong and buy one. Have fun losing your 100 Euros lol.
Oh and sure the .jpg is compressed more to hide the sharpness. I'll upload the uncompressed PSD if ya want...

basically i dont care if its a hoax.. but what worries me is that if its a hoax they are trying to scam people of their money...
OK. I have found something fishy. TheIndianKhan is neither Turkish nor from Turkey.
*1 = This looks like a translation. A native Turkish speaker person would not say that. Instead, it should be "Arkadasim bende 3 tane daha var"He replied me exactly:
arkadas bende var daha 3 tane *1
110 Euro satarim sana *3
nerde oturuyorsun ?
*2 If he is Turkish then why would he name the file as "ps3zpackresellerpackage" instead of a Turkish word?
*3 This is also wrong sentece. Proves that this guy is not Turkish.
BTW where are the other Turkish guys? They were going to visit the TheIndianKhan.
It's getting really interesting now. Some turkish guys here might buy it and we have a ZPack site now.
But it's funny how they write in their FAQ:
Please don’t connect the USB Dongle to a USB port of a PC or MAC. The USB Dongle will be destroyed, especially when you have Anti Virus and Firewall running. Please handle the USB Dongle with care. In cases where we can proof that the Dongle was connected to a PC or MAC, we will not make an exchange in order of damage.
Looks like they want to scare the standard user from connecting it to a PC. I know it's possible to encrypt the partition so it looks like there is nothing on the stick, but "destroying" the data?
We should check the EXIF data of all known pics and maybe find out since when their site existed. It says "©2008 e.World Technology Ltd. All rights reserved.", but I don't believe it.
