    I was doodling around in the PS settings and i found a thing that allowed me to backup my hard drive, so i ran their little wizard and i now have a copy of my playstation harddrive on my external hard drive.

    Now that got me thinking, i can now view the files on my external and if i wanted i could burn them to a DVD. So technically wouldnt it be possible to give those DVD's to my buddies and then they would be able to restore a backup of my HDD that contains all my PSN games...or even better would it be possible to download PS3 backup files on the internet via usenet.

    That way i can have backups of my PSN games online in case my HDD fails.

    I like the sound of idea.
    Doubt it would work but let me know if you try it.

    I was under the understanding that a system backup did not back up the games because you could always redownload. I thought it only backed up saves and user info and settings. To get some friends hooked up with your games follow this tutorial http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/611680
