    [UnAnswered] PS3 backups

    Hi, I have many PS3 games, however given the amount of money they represent I would like to back them up on my Linux Yellow Dog - Other Os and use them when needed, any ideas?

    You can't play them, but you can back them up in Linux via the guide here: http://ps3.ps4news.com

    If there is no hack for them, why are there so many ps3 game images? And what's up with this list?

    I am new to the forum, so please forgive me if this is a taboo subject.

    The list is to keep track of which PS3 titles have been released on the Internet, and which Firmware they each have. People just release them because they can (often so those on topsites can maintain their 'leech' slots )... the same as GameCube images were released 2-3 years before the first GameCube mod-chip came out.

    For now, the only thing they are good for is collecting and archiving mostly, and of course examining the files in each too.

    Yup all Blu Ray discs have a protective layer, I remember a friend of mine got a BD movies that was being stepped and rub on a floor by his 6 yr old nephew and at that time he was like WTF...but when he took and checked it, there were no scratches at all...I'm also was amazed...if that would be a DVD, I'm sure it won't playback anymore.
