167w ago - Today Spanish site Teknoconsolas.es (linked above) has posted the first release of PS3 Game Ripper v1.0, which is a homebrew application that allows you to reduce the size of PlayStation 3 game backups, followed shortly by version 2.0 which reportedly shrinks images even better and 3.0 followed by 3.1 below.
To quote, roughly translated: Lande, known PSP programmer has ported its PS3 UMDRipper the environment and has created what it called PS3 Game Ripper.
Basically what this application is to reduce the size of the PS3 backups. To detect this file as AT3 sounds, videos M2TS and MTS, dummies and different languages, allowing the removal of them and thus obtaining a copy of inferior size. Also automatically detects and removes the update of the game.
In principle it is a first version that will subsequently be optimized by the own Lande, adding more features.
NOTE: To use it you have to indicate the game folder, which contains the ID, eg "BLES00239."

seeing how they are a majority of what? you have a pc in a nice case with a BSD os filled with eyecandy, don't push it..
not meaning to bash the release but if you actually open the folders you can see that there are like 5 languages for evertything in there, each of them counts up to 1gig in size, say you want just one, delete others and problem solved..
i don't think the app actually recodes the movies since that would take a considerable amount of time.
