1. I've just updated firmware to 1.32 mainly because I have a 1080i res tv, and there is no point in running blu-ray down to 720p so I updated (hopefully not making a huge mistake).
2. I also read on $onys site that it is possible to run PS2 backups from the HDD, so my question is... Is anyone looking into this?3. Theoretically speaking, shouldn't the PS3 firmware being so similar to PSP have the same lets call them "loopholes" that would make everything that’s possible on PSP possible on PS3?*(The PLAYSTATION®3 system software version 1.32 update (with 1.30 and 1.31) includes the following:
Game: New for 1.31: You can now play PlayStation®2 format software titles that must be installed on the hard disk)
4. I have been reading a little bit over the weekend about all of this, but if paradox has a loader, would it be safe to say that again theoretically speaking, shouldn't we always be able to run some type of loader for the PS3 Iso's vs. a modchip of some kind? Time obviously is key here.
5. Even if the GameOS maybe isn't able to play backups yet or eventually, couldn't a PS3 emulator of sorts be created via Linux to use the hardware that WOULD play backups I mean I thought that Linux was able to utilize quite large amounts of the PS3 cell and system resources?
I know these aren't all questions, some just random thoughts, but I just wanted to open it up for conversation. Please, feel free to correct me about anything I've addressed that may be incorrect, I'm 100% new to Linux and really the PS3 as well, I just can't help but think with how similar it is to PSP that there has to be ways around, backdoors etc, just like the PSP.
