Video: Project to Run PS1/PS2 Back-ups on PS3 with a Mod-Chip


Sponsored Links
215w ago - The DemonHades Spanish PS3 Development team has been working on a project which aims to utilize a mod-chip to run PS1 and PS2 back-ups on a PS3 console without opening it or using switches and have posted up a concept video today.

According to one individual with a highly questionable reputation, this concept project could work because PS1/PS2 discs are authenticated only once on the VSH though liblv2 and the PIC chip would just automate it.

However, if Sony updates liblv2.sprx and more specifically ps1rom.bin so the emulated mechacon is updated it could be patchable.

Finally, to roughly translate from the video's caption:

"This video montage shows the operation of the chip that we are developing to load copies of PS1 and PS2 (if you're retro) in the PS3.

This video shows how to work, without leaving the console open and without switches etc out.

More information on the development of moddchip www.demonhades.org."

I didn't read ALL the posts... but is it possible to load ps2 games from the HDD, or only burnt backups? all my ps2 stuff is on a external & i use swap magic to play them.

I would have thought this would be patched by Sony quicker than we can say "GeoHot's an attention seeker" ?

I might have to look into this this. Swap magic has been a real pain thus far.

Well, I know in the past (the first year it was out) many users and Devs tried all kinds of "experiments" with movie discs on the PS3... from what I recall, the conclusion to them all was that movie and game discs use a different mode and authenticate differently on the PS3.
Exactly Boss , the PS3's Bluray Disc ROM MARK different from game to game that decrypt the EBOOT of each original PS3 Disc is a dick on the Ass for US and a moner warranty for $ony.

if someone will not break the XMB protection no one never will see PS3 backup running.

Hey boss could the ps3 be fooled like the ESR for ps2... for example lets make a blueray movie disc and place all the game files in the structure then point the play movie bluray startup file to the ps3 executable on the disc once the drive is unlocked cause it picks up the ps3 game as a bluray movie...

Any thoughts?? Seriously make a fake bluray movie structure, place all game files in the structure then point the play movie button to the ps3 executible file?? what's the worse that could happen like the drive is unlocked and the executible may boot just wonderin...
