August 21, 2010 // 5:40 pm - Update: PS3 Jailbreak Info Centre has confirmed reports from Manzzon that all games do work with PS Jailbreak when using an internal PS3 hard drive, as was suspected.

According to users on IRC, PS JailBreak PS3 game dumps are now hitting the Internet, however, according to PS3JailBreak.com a Sweedish Web site reports that not all PS3 game backups are working currently.

To quote: "Its been well known that games that feature files over 4gb will not work on external hard drive (due to fat32 limitations). So it's quite possible thats why these games don't work. We'll keep you posted."

PS JailBreak PS3 Game Compatibility List:

PS3 Games Reported as Working with PS JailBreak:

• Race Driver Grid
• Fight Night Round 3
• Skate 2
• FIFA 08
• FIFA 09
• Resistance Fall Of Man
• Mirrors Edge
• Motorstorm
• MX vs ATV Reflex
• Wall-E
• Need For Speed ProStreet
• inFamous

PS3 Games Reported as Not Working with PS JailBreak:

• Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare (black screen on startup)
• FIFA 10 (hangs before startup)
• NHL 10 (hangs before startup)
• UFC 2010 Undisputed (hangs before startup)

Although unconfirmed (Edit: now it appears to be confirmed), according to the OzMod Wiki it states the 4GB size limit issue arises only if you're dumping the PlayStation 3 game to external HDD, and on internal PS3 HDD's all should work.

Finally, another two PS JailBreak videos are available below for those interested!

No one replied to my question but I found out now that I have the JB... the answer is yes all games are playable regardless of region. Thanks anyways.

hey, is there any chance at all in the future that games will load without a disc in the drive? if so is there any time scale? will it take months to impliment or maybe come pretty soon, not at all?

any help is appreciated and repped whenever possible, cheers

Or will the system check the update f/w being installed to the current one on the system?

And like one of the user(s) asked earlier, is it possible to remove the update files to save that extra bit of space?


Yup, you can remove the folder and the file.

3D Dot Game Heroes PS3 US JB on the newsgroups. You can't load this from Backup Manager if your video mode is set to 1080P. Changing it to 720P it boots to a black screen, but you can then Quit Game and load it from the disc icon on the XMB.

Also, interestingly enough, there is a Windows EXE included in PS3_GAME\USRDIR\data. I'm not sure if this is from the retail disc, or if someone copied it there by mistake before uploading it.

God of War III is a good one. You can rip all the languages except whichever you want. I also removed all the bonus videos. Reduces it by around 16GB.

I'd rather see retail patches get priority over demos. By a long shot.

eventually, we will be able to play the demos from the psn store. we just have to give it time, it took 4 years to get into the ps3 as far as we have right now, give it a couple more weeks or even days.

Want to put a few games on the HDD and hope this can save a little space for other stuff.
