238w ago - Today Spanish site Teknoconsolas.es (linked above) has posted the first release of PS3 Game Ripper v1.0, which is a homebrew application that allows you to reduce the size of PlayStation 3 game backups, followed shortly by version 2.0 which reportedly shrinks images even better and 3.0 followed by 3.1 below.

Download: PS3 Game Ripper v1.0 / PS3 Game Ripper v2.0 / PS3 Game Ripper v2.0 (English) / PS3 Game Ripper v3.0 / PS3 Game Ripper v3.1

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."

This is certainly good news for the bigger games anyhow. There really aren't that many big size games. This is nice to see though!

Audio and video files can be ripped. for example, replace a video file with a very small 1 second video clip. This would virtually remove the file in terms of filesize.

There's nothing new here, since the PS2 games where ripped to downsize. PS2 have dummys because of a limitation of the files system, no PS2 DVD could have less then 1.2 GB. PS3 doesn't need dummys but also have files that could be ripped like audio and movies of other languages, especially in region 2 (PAL) games. Some games have 7 or plus languages. Let the rippers begin their work!

you can only delete language files and dummy files to reduce the file size.

From what I understand, it is designed to remove unnecessary files in order to optimize the game's filesize. I doubt this will prevent the game from detecting your firmware version and prompting you to update, but you can hope.

I hope so too. Just about how much would this reduce the actual game file?
