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

1150°
214w 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.

Kermit has partial DECI2 support and this feature is still being worked on. Expect more mesmerizing features to come.

All debug, disassembly, cheat-engine, memory dumping, PC communication features are achieved by the install of the resident kernel module called DBGCore which hooks/patches into the existing PS2 OS kernel. Kermit communicates with the PC through either full duplex EE-SIO (Mr.Brown's EE-SIO cable) or through iLINK (IEE 1394).

222w ago - A few days back we reported on both PS3 and PSP sales data, and today Sony has revealed that it has sold one million PS2 gaming consoles in 2010 thus far.

In addition to being crowned as the best selling gaming console of all time, it appears as though the PlayStation 2 still have some life left in it indeed.

The PlayStation 2 has officially broke into its first 1,000,000 units for 2010!

To quote: "This feat was accomplished weeks before we reached the halfway point in the year, meaning the PS2 has potential to sell around 3,000,000 to 3,500,000 units by the end of the year due to the holiday season.

Analysts have predicted that the PS2 will soon reach a ground-breaking 150,000,000 total units.

This is just under 50,000,000 more units than its predecessor, the PlayStation (PSOne) and a goal that Kaz Hirai (President & CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment) set for the PlayStation 3 a few years ago."

To start off, let me explain a little about Forgotten Sands. The first thing I wanted to mention is to let you all know that this is not a movie based on the [Register or Login to view links].

In fact, we are bringing the prince back to the roots from the PlayStation 2 era by having this game take place in the seven year gap between Sands of Time and Warrior Within. We think you'll notice a lot of reminiscent elements of the original trilogy in Forgotten Sands.

Some other things we're extremely excited to talk about are the elemental powers and epic battles that take place n the game. Thanks to the Anvil Engine from Assassin's...
