242w ago - Earlier today we reported on the PSJailBreaker clone, with another surfacing now dubbed the PS3Break PS3 modchip alongside a video, and the PS3Key team have posted a few internal pictures of their upcoming PlayStation 3 modchip as well.

In what appears to be a battle of the clones, the x3JailBreak clone team have stated the PS3Break clone is fake, to quote:

"Today, we have seen online on many websites are talking about ps3break.com. This team is sending our fake email and saying it is our new x3 brand. This is not true and we are not associated to ps3break.com at all. Any orders that come from this website, we will not support it!"

According to PSGroove, PS3Key has updated their Facebook with internal pics (below) and a recommended retail price of $49 USD.

The official PS3Break site (linked above) states the following on their USB device:

PS3Break features are as following (PS3Break User Instructions):

1) Larger case for ease of use and less change of misplacing or losing your dongle.
2) More Powerful (competition using 8 bit processor compared to PS3break is using a 32 bit operating processor)

4) As updates become available PS3break is easily upgradable.
5) Extensible ports for upcoming features/add-on

A serial number will be matched to your PS3, which is authenticated online. and you may use your authorized serial number to access the site for new updating.

@zorro10, looks like a good deal, but at least with ebay you get some kinda buyer protection if it ever arrives broke or gets lost in the mail, but for $35 I might chance it with this site.

I think you'll have a solid product in the PS3Key. They provided the WiiKey and they're a pretty reputable bunch of guys!

Which distributor did you order from? What country are you located? I have visited the USA site but I can't find the PS3Break anywhere. I just don't believe the USA site has it listed yet even though they're on the distributor list.

I think I saw this earlier from eBay but I can't find it now. I have tried searches for numerous words with "USB Controller" in the title.

I bought it, got a DHL tracking number and email confirmation. Should be here by the end of the week (Australia, bought Express Shipping as well).

All the DIY ways would be great, but they're impossible to find. I don't have a TI-84+ calculator, and this is still cheaper than that or you know, buying a new phont. On top of that, it's not massive and can just be left plugged in.
