To quote via e-mail: Hi I created a little tool to help out converting all those fun game rips to iso form. This is my contribution back to the PS3 scene. Hope this helps everybody.
PS3 GAME (RIP-TO-ISO) MASS CONVERTER will convert all game rips in any game folder you drag and drop onto the CONVERT_TO_ISO.BAT file. It can also continue converting where you left off if suddenly you stop the program or your PC shuts off or whatever the scenario that may happen.

To quote: Hello everyone. For GT fans eagerly awaiting Gran Turismo 6, the next four weeks might just be completely unbearable. To help ease the wait, I am very happy to share with you new information on what is shaping up to be a stunning new entry in the legendary series.
Over 120 new cars have been added to GT6 - taking the already comprehensive total car tally to an unprecedented 1200+ vehicles.
In addition, the number of track layouts has swelled to 100 and features returning classic tracks and brand new locations and circuits such as Ascari, Spain and the world famous Silverstone, Goodwood and Mount Panorama tracks to name just a few.
The carefully considered and curated car and track list is supported by a completely overhauled physics engine making gameplay even more dynamic and realistic, a new interface, and enhanced online functionality to allow you to tailor your multiplayer gaming sessions as you wish.
The technical innovation in the game also extends to hugely ground-breaking technology that will see in future updates a new game feature known as 'GPS Logger'.
