Seems the new MultiMan doesnt require you to have a disc anymore
Just throwing it out there, guys.. Its $80. Whether or not it can play PS3 games is pretty irrelevant here. Go for it, bro. PS3 games or not, you have a really cheap, really good, multimedia center there.
you can buy new lasers from places like ebay for around 60usd. that is still only 140 for a white pos3 which is still a good deal
Also remember most games you can run discless on the internal drive.. PKG it! There are a bunch of threads around on the web with pre-made ones for most games.
But check what firmware is on that PS3, if its OFW 3.56... then all you'd have is a white $80 dvd-player until a downgrade for 3.56 is made or if and when 3.56CFW or 3.60CFW is made.
No its not possible to backup game with dead BD-drive .only backup from external HDD is possible.s3:
currently no Dev working on custom firmware for 3.56. waste of time .
the question was can he play games not backup games. You can backup games through ftp and launch with newest multiman without bluray working. But like oldfish said check firmware first
