Today jeffma posted a PS3 PKG Fast Unpacker homebrew application on A9VG.com (linked above) for those seeking to unpack PlayStation 3 PKG files really fast.

Download: PS3 PKG Fast Unpacker Homebrew Application

It is similar to the recently released PS3 PKGView and UnPKG file extractors / unpackers, and to use it simply click the big button and select your PKG file.

To quote, roughly translated: "There is a similar procedure before the call PkgView.exe But the program can not bulk unpacked, unpack and often wrong.

The device can be quickly unpacked all the files once unpacked. Self-made program can only unpack and debug pkg. Can not unpack the pkg downloaded from the official PSN."

Ok so it is still not possible to play the retail version of psn games like ps1 classics or anything just demos for now.

If you hope to play PSN games we need to disassemble EBOOT.BIN, extracting retail packages is already possible with the PS3 itself though.
The nice thing about XBOX360 arcade games was that there was just a fixed flag at an fixed address that needs to be changed to unlock the full game, too bad it's not the case here

Which full retail packages work? I have found none, they all require psn access.

There are a few debug pkg games floating about, which should install thouugh.

The demo installers work though, and some full retail packages work as well, it's odd, but yeah. Just depends on what kind of content it is. Prologue, for example (which I actually bought, stupid Sony), wouldn't let me play it unless I got to go on PSN. Other stuff does work oddly enough.
