It was only a few days ago when we reported about the new Xbox 360 Slim / S getting “hacked” treatment by modders. And just when we all thought that there is never going to be a way to hack the most secure console of this generation i.e. PlayStation 3, in comes a new hack which claims to run games on PS3 without having the need to insert the original disc. This is achieved by a special “USB modchip” drive which allows you to dump your games from original discs to internal or external drive connected to PS3.
It was earlier this year when famous iPhone hacker named George Hotz (aka Geohot) managed to hack the PS3, allowing full memory access on the system. But his hack was limited to “OtherOS” feature which was later removed by Sony in firmware 3.x. He also said that he did it for research purposes only and that he had no plans to further pursue it.
Of course there is still doubts about how much of this is true and how much isn’t. But going by the video attached below, it looks quite legit. Share your thoughts on this in the comments section below. [via Engadget]
