BluRay burning, what's missing?
BluRay burning, what's missing? –
I know that there must be some dev. missing to achieve this.
Say for exemple, an homebrew like snes9x. It would be great if we could burn it to dvd/bluray with a directory with some roms and run it directly without having to install packages.
If we can sign homebrews now, what's preventing us from having 'Game on disc' behavior from them? (Mind you, i'm genuinely currious about it, this is not a 'smart ass question').
At this point, would it even be possible to run them without a modded firmware? If we can sign em to look just like what sony would sign, im guessing that my example of a snes9x+roms dvd (or bluray if it is really needed) could be ran on a 3.55 OFW.
Just for reference, bluray burners and discs are somewhat affordable now and i wouldnt mind burning on bluray if it was the only way to do it (yeah snes9x+roms would take about 300mb of the bluray but ohwell).
I imagine with all the breakthroughs in signing eboots and such there are many Chinese shops looking to work this out themselves.
Honestly though, why not leverage your internal drive for roms instead of a far more expensive bluray recordable?

Yeah, you are probably right about chinese counterfeits.
As for internal vs disc, it is more a question of using content on an 'non-jailbreak' ps3. My ps3 runs geohot's 3.55 and i copied my roms over to hdd and i dont mind. However i have friends who would appreciate emulators but wouldn't want to get any sort of custom firmware in their ps3.
Also, if possible, dvdr (or hell, even cdr) would be a nice alternative for them if bluray isn't needed to run games directly.
And for these older console, content isnt too big so it isnt so much an issue, but i can see other emulators that would start to take quite a bit of size. For example, my MAME directory is nearly 8gb. I can see PS2 iso taking quite a bit too.
