If it turns out that it is a fake then that's the best fake ever!
nope, it's just a scam with obvious flaws that the scammers try to turn into features (xp frame for instance)... even if just a few people fall for it, they'd get over 100€ per idiot, that's a good ratio, if you ask me, and i certainly would put some effort into it ^^
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!

Until the end anyway, then they sold the domain for $$$. I should e-mail them (zpacksupport @ gmail.com) to see what they have to say about the Zpack, maybe try to get them to somehow prove to us it's legit, or not.
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?
