    i think i remember seeing an external hard-drive mod for the PS3, where you copied the games onto the HDD and played off that. though, i can't find any links to it anymore. (or if in fact it really existed. could have been a fake).

    Its going to be pretty hard, since they will be constantly updating the system with firmware. No doubt a brainiac will figure something out eventually, but not gonna hold my breath.

    Yeah, being able to play games for free would be nice, but I'm more excited about the homebrew potential!

    you know, some people modify their consoles just for the sake of making them a little bit more unique...or to see if it could actually be done. Being able to play backed up games is just an added bonus.

    It's sort of like solving a puzzle. It takes a lot of time and patience, but the end result is well worth it.

    Well I just wanted to say making an image or even putting a game on disc isn't enough.You have to manipulate the system in order to get anything to boot.Normally they have hidden boot sectors on the disc that can't be read without the proper equipment.A modchip would work,but once again where do you actually start.I was thinking do you start on the actual Blu-Ray drive or the actual split nand that stores the firmware update.I think you can develop a modchip,but it won't be cheap producing one.You will end up spending a couple grand just on developmental stages.The Actel modchip programmers are not cheap,so if you want to hack at this system with a modchip you will probably end up spending more than you can handle.Unless you plan on mass producing a modchip it really isn't worth the investment.

    LBurna is completely right.modchip is almost a definite no-no.plus the ps3 is so expensive why would you wanna risk it?the xbox 360 had some modchips but dont those ppl regret it now when the firmware hack came into play.those companies just lost alot of money.and at the time those modchips were the first ones so ofcourse they werent perfect so not alot of ppl bought them.there is already a homebrew method that's stick at AD but that's really risky.i'd say dont mod it for another 2 years lol.peace
