    just to add a little more info I have confirmed this to be real through my sources, This is a dvd drive Emulator it does not allow homebrew. This is great news and a great new product but it is not a replacement for the JTAG hack.

    Here's my thought .... I have been flashing drives for several years now and could pretty much do them in my sleep. However if this device actually sees the light of day, I will be one of the millions purchasing it! I can't wait until the pre-order page is active!!

    Insane! Any ETA? Any particular team behind this release? First time I've ever heard of it...or heard of anyone working on a linux tool.

    I'm guessing it will be very similar to the Wode Jukebox for Wii, with a price tag around $130.

    mmmmmm...... sweet..... a way for non jtag consoles to run games discless from an usb harddrive. if this works, and gets not circumvented by microsoft with a dashboard update, i will definitely buy one.

    i am just wondering if this also is a solution for consoles that do not have a matching dvd key anymore....

    Yea, I was wondering if it interacts with the DVD drive to replicate the key or pulls it from the console itself.

    Also, a dashboard may render this useless. Let's hope that it also works with the new disk format.

    Looks REALLY good. If everything goes well and seems safe, I will be investing in one.

    From what I understand it is from the same team as the WODE. And if so then it's definitely legit. I bought a WODE for the wife's Wii back at launch and absolutely love it, thought it was expensive. If I recall right, I paid around $130 for it.

    Many will jump in stating that if the price is too expensive then they'll stick to cheap discs. If you're one of those people you may want to think your comment through.

    Drive emulation is 1:1 (an exact copy of the disc). Disc backups will never be 1:1 (leads to being banned from LIVE). Also, rumors state new games may not fit on to dl's in the future.


    And before this thread runs wild with a bunch of "what if" posts, remember this is a DISC DRIVE EMULATOR.

    You won't run homebrew.

    You won't revive a drive-less 360.

    You won't be able to jtag a console.

    edit
    Just read that it's not from the WODE team. It's from those who made the drivekey, wiikey, and ps3key. But none the less, that atleast shows that it's still from a legit team.
