To quote, roughly translated: Lande, known PSP programmer has ported its PS3 UMDRipper the environment and has created what it called PS3 Game Ripper.
Basically what this application is to reduce the size of the PS3 backups. To detect this file as AT3 sounds, videos M2TS and MTS, dummies and different languages, allowing the removal of them and thus obtaining a copy of inferior size. Also automatically detects and removes the update of the game.
In principle it is a first version that will subsequently be optimized by the own Lande, adding more features.
NOTE: To use it you have to indicate the game folder, which contains the ID, eg "BLES00239."
