1. I closed a 5pages-thread a few minutes ago.
2. Don't be afraid,... The scene won't 'die'. Atleast as long as there are contributers. So there is your turn. Become a scene-member and contribute.
Contributing is even if you would search for threads like this on your own and if some new users would do the same, the current 'PS3-Scene' wouldn't [even] be as shitty as it is, with all the 10year-jerks stealing our time because THEY WANT to play 'their backups' (I used the quotes for obvious reasons, even thought not all of those people use it to play games for free.) as fast as possible, with as less as possible problems and they want an engineer/developer sent to their home, which hacks their hardware for them for free...
Don't get me wrong. It wasn't all directly for you, but also for those others who read it and ask questions, instead of searching for an answer.
