ps3 disc specs
what are the technical specs on ps3 cds?
i've heard of ps2 disks being pressed or manufactured a certain way when they are made.
does anyone know if ps3 disks are made in a similar way?
They are on Blu-ray discs, so yes the manufacturing process differs from PS1/PS2 CDs/DVDs... tons of info here on them though: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blu-ray_Disc
PS3 Blu-ray game discs also have multiple layers of encryption and checks which all must pass through the PS3's hypervisor, which is probably one reason why we haven't seen a PS3 Action Replay/GameShark yet.
Some detailed info on the PS2 direct-boot process can be found HERE, however, it isn't the same as on PS3 due to the above reasons among others I'm sure.
That's a bummer because some of the games for the PS2 are awesome, but I don't want to have more than one console.
But the PS3 does have backward compatibility? Or are you worried at the moment about playing backups in the console?
Dunno if you've seen that yet
