PS3 "Game Server" Homebrew
PS3 "Game Server" Homebrew –
i don't know if it has been posted already, but i came up with an idea.
(i don't even know if it's possible)
You all must've heard about Ps3 Media Server;;;With PMS you can play even ISO movies.
My question is: Is there any chance that we could do the same with ISO games?
We can load em right from the computer hard drive using the network.
I guess it wouldn't be that hard.
The aplication connects to the ps3 ( just like the pms) mount the bd disc on XMB and it should run at least in theory.
Waiting for answers.
Well on this Media Server, you have to tell it to connect to the Playstation and the PS3 pops up an icon under the Video category. So it would require not only something through the ps3 that allows it to pop up in the Game category, but also it would require the program itself to be set up for that use. Which I doubt would happen since the Media Server group is probably not quite the hacking type. Not to mention, the speed at which the BlueRay disc is read compared to the speed at which your WiFi or Ethernet could transfer. I would have to say it is a good idea but not entirely possible.
Im fairly certain that eventually it would be possible, in one manner or another.
Almost 100% certain in fact, the question of "when" however. Hmmm, it would probably be a while. Since we're still laying the groundwork of the PS3 hacking scene you won't see homebrew with functions like this for a while.
But it will most likely happen. People like having options.
Even if all the hacks were set up right, there is still the problem of speeds. The ps3 reads blue ray discs at an average of 9 MB/s. The average internet speed is about 4.2-5.1 mb/s.

PS3 is capable of 100 MBit/s ethernet, which is about 12 MB/s. So, something like the Open PS2 Loader (albeit, it would be the Open PS3 Loader or something like that) could work. Of course, it won't work over the Internet, but I doubt anyone would try to stream games over anything other than a LAN, anyway.

Don't get me wrong, it will always be prefereable to run from internal. Some aspects of playing would likely suffer.

i can just see all the little kiddies screaming cod lags so badly and chuggs and this and that, it would all be on their end.
i don't think this is a good idea. psm runs for what i want it to do and thats moving movies, music and pictures over.
I'm not talking about Streaming from the internet.

EDIT: AH and remember PMS is Open Source
Well, since the PS3 can deliver 125MB/s over ether, if you had an gigabit switch and a gigabit card on your computer, and short cables.

theory is theory, checking it out is more expensive lol :P
No the PS3 has gigabit networking, and 100Mb is 12.5MB, and 1Gb is 125MB. Just to clear it up for you.
