PS3 USB Modchip Allows For Easy Hard Drive Game Backups (video)
At $60 bucks a pop, many gamers wish there was an easy way of backing up their expensive PS3 games to prevent wear and tear, since it’s legal to do so (as long as you actually own the thing). Now, a group has come out with something called the PSJailbreak that allows for playing hard drive backups, no dangerous console modding required. Simply insert the USB dongle, use the included backup tool, and you’re set to play games off either the PS3′s internal drive or external storage. If you’re interested (and I’m sure quite a few PS3 users are), be warned that Sony usually stamps out these exploits with quickly-released firmware updates. The video showing the process is below.
