well heres the thing. i have a buddy of mine who rents games and rips them to his ps3 hdd so he can play them all the time. even with no disk. im wondering how this is possible and what i need to do it. the same friend done the same thing with his xbox. ive got my system up to 537 gig and have 5 usb ports on it as of now. mods by me. but he refuses to tell me saying its illegal and all this bleep. but how can it be illegal when you buy a game and want to store it to your hdd that way you never have to get up off your bleep to put a new game in.! i think its wonderful and would love to figure out how to do it if i can get any help!
