PKGView has a graphical interface that simplifies the extraction of both individual files and the complete package.

Note: This version is very limited and only allows you to extract individual files, it can not remove folders or create PKG files.

Finally, UnPKG requires the VC++ Redistributable Package to run the exe file linked above. Props to emot for the news!

you can only use it to extract retail PKGs.

I'm glad you've added support for retail .PKG files ifcaro. I wish I had seen this earlier so I wouldn't have to install a retail .PKG file on my PS3, open up a file manager, copy it to my USB and then put it on my computer.

+Rep man.
