20w ago - Following up on his previous modification, today PlayStation 3 developer Exofreak is back with a video demonstrating a new PS3 XMB Mod which makes your PS3 CFW (Custom Firmware) look like OFW (Official Firmware) below.

The best part about it is, it is very easy to replace so you can change it with your modded files whenever you want.
Example, you have a friend over and want him to think you have a genuine gaming system then replace it with my files and it will look completly OFW! You can switch it back later!

According to Exeo Entertainment, the Extreme Gamer pipes disc data to the console through USB or ethernet ports. The operation sounds a little fishy, but Exeo Entertainment assured us the device is on the up and up - console makers allow it to function because the data is processed on the console itself.
It's a neat trick, but it does seem a little late, considering the stars of this year's E3. The company told us it's aware of this, and is already planning to build a next-gen...
