this is what i'm looking for! X360 key on your PS3
But for now it's still a dream as this news is still flagged as rumor

I, like others have said, think the photo's leave a lot to be desired (looks like the early PS3 drive bay adapter plate + IDE->Sata drive.
It was said a LONG time ago that an optical emulator would be great.maybe it's just taken this long because of the layers of encryption (pcb with decryption built in?)
- can anyone say "PODE Jukebox" ? hehe
Would be nice if true (would like to update my firmware, but don't want to loose (any more) functionality!

hmm, thinking that BD-Rom have a updateable firmware, I think patching the thing will mostly render this BD-emulator useless.
Unless they done something on it that even firmware update cant patch it.

Well actually YES I do read (as is fairly obvious from my post). The fact that I (and I really must apologise for this) did not mention that the images were "filler"s is irrelevant because as has been mentioned this is still RUMOUR anyway (albeit rumour with a little more weight to it than usual thanks to PS3NEWS)
Nice to see my previous contribution was at least appreciated by PS3NEWS even if you (damox) didn't like it.

This will be huge if it turns out to be real.

If this turned out to be true, my disdain for the scene would return to delight. Perhaps now is a better time with the PS4 entering development - maybe Sony is concentrating elsewhere now?
Bah, probably not. With the business rumors of Sony being in a bit of turmoil, they'll try to squash this one too. Hope it comes out.

thanks for that was wondering what it meant.. wonder when we will know more?

No problem Yeah I wonder when we will know more too? As niwakun already mentioned, the BD drive has updatable FW and so I also wonder how this board would handle that (if it does handle it at all!).
One thing that I find interesting is that they say they wanted to keep this project quiet because Sony can't patch it and so the legal team would "be all over it" once it is released... sooooo why keep it quiet in the first place? I'm only asking because Sony's legal team having prior knowledge to it's existence wouldn't make that much of an impact unless they know exactly where it will eventually be produced or sold.
They would still have to take the same steps necessary to prevent the sale of it after it is released irrespective of prior knowledge so I don't see a problem with more info being released about it's functionality and pricing etc. (Just not info about the associated manufacturer or retailers!)

No Hacking and No CFW needed, emulation is the future ? Yea but just for pirating games. No benefit of homebrew or something like that. And by the way bootloader exploit is already in work same as now some dev's asked team ac1d to hold back the cex2dex tool. Anyway so we have more time to work on other things and the scene is finally again working together, even if it is underground and not in public but real good and great things will be coming this year. Till this bd emu chip is out it will be overpriced crap.
