i'd like to initiate some speculation on an independently hosted PSN server... by modding the ps3 firmware (perhaps via the USB firmware loader) for all hacked ps3's to play together with.
the mod could just redirect to the server for us, similar to how the proxy trick would redirect to a server that reports back the same (or lower) firmware version.
it could, for example be hosted by ps3news.com and have a dedicated section with a donation meter at the top showing the annual goal to meet (or beat) hosting costs, and the current amount payed for.
anyone think this would be remotely possible? if this were possible... would you contribute?
