Video: ZPack for PS3 - The First PlayStation 3 Backup System?!


Sponsored Links
265w ago - Below is a video from TheIndianKhan on YouTube and some info on Zpack for PS3, which claims (ZPack FAQ) to be the first PlayStation 3 backup system.

To quote: I found this in my holiday in Korea, there are PS3 cafes which run their games from external harddisk without using the original disks. I am one of the first who tested this Zpack System.

Zpack is the first working Backup System for PlayStation 3. It was especially designed for PlayStation Cafes across the world to avoid damaging your original game disk and beware them to be stolen by customers. You will not need the original disk to play on your PS3 anymore just start any game you have directly from your external hard disk.

Zpack comes to you with a USB Dongle and a DISK with the Zpack Software, which you only need the first time for installation. The USB dongle have to be connected to your PS3 all the time. When you run a PlayStation Cafe with 8 PlayStation Terminals, you will need 8 Zpacks for each PS3 Terminal to run the games from the external drives. Please pay Attention for our Zpack bundles.





Below is another upload of the first video as it currently appears dead:





Yet another Zpack video by ps3depp too:





Here is yet another Zpack video.. this time for Virtual Tennis Pro 3:





Rough translation for second video by Riberygehtab: Zpack for PS3 - Backup Motorstorm 3 game on external PS3 HDD.

Installation: So easy, I've never patched a game console. Heard that contributed to the development of Zpacks a developer of the PS3 has.

Application: Very easy and clear handling. Backup of games take a minute to external HD up to 25. Online backups are playable.

Price: Well 100€ + 10€ shipping was a bit steep, but it was worth to me in the end.

Disadvantages: Not functioning under linux, delivery times are somewhat long, but understandable, is designed for your busy boys.

Has anyone noticed that his external harddrive leds doesn't flicker even once while installing or playing a game?

I think PayPal should put a flag on this account. Not closing it but watching it and holding the funds for a while. Too suspicous...

Oh damn, you`re so right. I couldn`t wait and wanted the community to know about the download. So i filled in this 100 forms to come to the download.

Guess what: I downloaded 80 Mb of silly ryugaiden (japanese anime tv series) pics.

I'm not sure if i'm allowed to post this, but the ZPack download mentioned earlier can be found here: [URL Removed By Admin]

However, when i click Download i need to take a survey which is not available for my country. Very likely there is no download at all, just a survey they want us to take. ZPack fake? Download fake? Fake, fake, fake...

I understand what you are saying and can see your reasoning. I'm a physics major, and this Z-Pack thing is simply a theory. You cannot disprove it, nor can your prove it until you have physical proof. Speculation counts for nothing, other than discussion, which is what we have going here. Until there is physical proof, not a dismissal, it is possible. Not probable, but possible.

You can stop kidding yourself, and you're free to do so. Galileo didn't stop when he discovered the earth revolves around the sun, even though he was persecuted by the church because apparently god disagreed. Guess what? Physical proof was found. Your speculation and accusation has no evidence, and therefor cannot be accepted as fact/ law.

I'm not saying your observation is false, I'm just saying I don't agree. All this speculation will go on and on until it is actually proved or disproved by a trustworthy source.

Try your self to do that with right hand? When you same time have controller. And same time voice change like stopped but he go on to continues Do you think why because was mistake

So if its fake it would appear they went through an awful lot of time to annoy people who are indefinetly waiting for something useful to apear even if it were a back up launcher like i read in another post through an exploit like the psp.

3) I saw some other people comment about that some of them saying it can be DVD disk like move put in PS3 just all
4) But biggest joke is that the they trying to sell for 100 Euros but none complete proof of that at least videos in perfect light with all conections to TV or menu of PS3 and other smart hack stories

Anyway someone believe them so it is not my money.
