Great new possibility but useless for now except loosing more money in burning and killing the nature cause not so much ecololy compliance !
Cause no more compatibility & less flexibility once burned u can't change eboot etc.
yes, but you can take the burned backup to a friends house, no need to get there and spend time passing a 15gb game to his hdd

but really, both are pretty useless, since you have you'r pc on, the ps3 on, the tv on, the router on,the homeserver on, portable phones on their base reloading, the refrigerator... the cable box/sat box/amps/stereo/microwave/oven/garage door sensor/surveilance cams/a hole bunch of other crap on stand by...and you're breathing! all that CO2...if you want to be ecological turn then all of, then stop breathing (and you still wount make a diference)
on topic - thanks dean
i would really like to see this on a firmware - full bypass of BD security, no pkg's install or any other crap, you put a backup in the drive and run it! no need for BM, no need to install anything, no need to unmount a game once you're done, or reseting anything, all very children and newbie friendly! easier to pass on data, to take to a friends house, to store (debatable yes), and a nice move on economy, its about time those blueray burners and recordables prices begin to plunge
Wow, it's nice to know that people can comprehend what they read. What I was talking about was the 70-80% (at least) of people who do use a wireless router. I was talking about the mainstream public. Most people use a wireless router because it is just convenient and far less expensive to use rather than running LAN wire all through their home. Anyone living in a home more than 10 or 15 years old would have to buy and install network cable through their whole home to do what you're talking about which would easily cost into the several hundred dollars unless they do the installation themselves, which most people wouldn't be comfortable doing. They would have to hire someone to do it for them. It is far easier and economical to just buy a roughly $50 wireless router. Next time read the whole thread before you comment. Or maybe you should start a little closer to your level. Dr. Seuss has some good books. I suggest Green Eggs & Ham. Sorry - had to eff with you. before everyone flips out, it was a joke. Smile - It'll be ok

Like others have said...I see no reason for this when backups on the hdd save the lense. Unlike always having to use a disc. Also what makes less sense is your only going to be able to burn the "small" sized games that are from 2gb to a little over 4gb on a dual layer disc. I have to admit I like the idea of being able to finally listen to music while playing games. But ehh...for me this tool is pretty much a waste of time. That and its for people that like to throw more money away on discs. If the disc boot was able to allow psp games then that's another story. Burning ps3 games makes no sense to me at all. Even before backup managers existed.Sure for those that can "afford" a blueray disc burner and the discs sure go right ahead but thats just as bad as buying another ps3.
"Mainstream public" here is a bad argument considering we ARE talking about people modding PS3s which is, by in large, only done by enthusiasts (meaning at least wireless N routers).

This is why I brought up ethernet and eSata raid solutions... Being able to point to a networked HD as the location for your backups (as well as music and movies) would be incredible.
glad you can take a joke. You are right that ethernet and eSata raid solutions would be effective if the software end was worked out by someone. I agree that it sounds like a good idea and I'd like to see it happen at some point, but the PS3 scene is still pretty new compared to the 360, Wii, PSP, etc... scenes. And there are bigger issues that need to be worked out at this point. I just think that it is probably at least a year away if someone does put the time into it. Back on topic: As some have said, playing DVD/Blu-Ray backups might not work for them, but it's good to have the option if you need it for whatever reason like lack of hard drive space, or like someone mentioned, being able to take a game to a friend's house and being able to play it there without copying it to their hard drive. As someone else mentioned this might help bring down the prices of Blu-Ray burners and discs. Right now they are not really cost effective. You will always be better off playing the game from a hard drive connected directly to your PS3 whether it's internal or external connected to your USB port. This is currently the most cost effective per Gigabyte solution for playing your games
I assumed you were replying to damox, so I didn't think it necessary to comment on my love of infectious breakfast meats. :-P

Yeah, when I put in my 1TB internal it was a very tight fit, but it did work fine. They are thicker than the PS3's stock hard drive. I haven't done any recent research on hard drives but I think that you can find 3TB USB hard drives for a little over $100. Most PS3's have 2 but some have 4 USB ports. If you have 2 ports, than you could max out (don't quote me) at 7 Terabytes. I think that even if you were a completionist and wanted to have every single game like some people do with their roms, you would max out between 3-4 Terabytes so a networked hard drive wouldn't really be necessary. Even then, you could spend a lifetime trying to play through all of them. Girls may be a pain in the ass, but they are a lot more fun than anything you can play on the PS3. You can quote that.
Finally you can play ps3 games on disks now!
