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


196w 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 hope that this can actually can be produced and easy for the end user to use.

while a nice concept all they are doing is fooling the ps3.. it just makes it more end user friendly.

on top of that if sony can easily patch it out by adding more disc checks this will end up leaving us with the option of playing ps1/ps2 backups or updating and using PSN.

once an end user exploit is found in the 3.15< kernels a loader app could do the same thing.

As I commented that it would raise a video montage for you to hear how the chip, as you see it open is not needed nor switches, as simple as in the video.El next video will be up and running and you will see a soldier.
I have now merged the threads and moved the project to the Site News so others can check out the concept video.

Looking forward to seeing further progress as well!

Ok, no offense to you if english isn't your first language, but I didn't understand what was posted initially until I saw these further posts. I completely understand how things can be misconstrued with a language barrier.

However, when I read the initial post here about this (and the english in it is grammatical nightmare), it seemed like the video was trying to demonstrate a working hack with a "proof" video. If this wasn't the case, then I apologize if you took offense to my comment.

Generally posts in this particular forum are about working hacks. If this video is just to demonstrate how it's "supposed" to work, then it should have been stated a little more clearly to the english speaking members so misunderstandings do not happen.

I think I understand what you're posting now though.
