277w ago - Below is a video from TheIndianKhan on YouTube and some info on Zpack for PS3, which claims (ZPack FAQ) to be the first PlayStation 3 backup system.

To quote: I found this in my holiday in Korea, there are PS3 cafes which run their games from external harddisk without using the original disks. I am one of the first who tested this Zpack System.

Zpack is the first working Backup System for PlayStation 3. It was especially designed for PlayStation Cafes across the world to avoid damaging your original game disk and beware them to be stolen by customers. You will not need the original disk to play on your PS3 anymore just start any game you have directly from your external hard disk.

Zpack comes to you with a USB Dongle and a DISK with the Zpack Software, which you only need the first time for installation. The USB dongle have to be connected to your PS3 all the time. When you run a PlayStation Cafe with 8 PlayStation Terminals, you will need 8 Zpacks for each PS3 Terminal to run the games from the external drives. Please pay Attention for our Zpack bundles.




Below is another upload of the first video as it currently appears dead:




Yet another Zpack video by ps3depp too:




Here is yet another Zpack video.. this time for Virtual Tennis Pro 3:




Rough translation for second video by Riberygehtab: Zpack for PS3 - Backup Motorstorm 3 game on external PS3 HDD.

Installation: So easy, I've never patched a game console. Heard that contributed to the development of Zpacks a developer of the PS3 has.

Application: Very easy and clear handling. Backup of games take a minute to external HD up to 25. Online backups are playable.

Price: Well 100€ + 10€ shipping was a bit steep, but it was worth to me in the end.

Disadvantages: Not functioning under linux, delivery times are somewhat long, but understandable, is designed for your busy boys.

Just wanted to know what happened to ZPack, the magical USB dongle+disc hack that 'they use in cafe shops in Asia'.. I think we never got the end of the story, although it's probably fake (IMO, and of many others).

So, what happened to Zpack?

I suppose we'll close this until word spreads of either a meeting taking place, someone receives their Zpack, the Zpack "new site" opens in February, etc. No sense in re-hashing whether it's real or fake for another week with no solid proof to backup claims on either side.

If anyone has new information on Zpack that has not been discussed in the last 38 pages then start a new thread here and I will merge it with this one.

We won't reopen this thread though until there is a legitimate reason to do so. Finally, congrats to everyone who contributed towards making this one of the most popular threads so far in 2010.


Update: The ZPack Web site went back online on February 1, 2010 but nothing changed... basically the new month started and so did their free Web host's bandwidth is all.

This things is obviously fake but well done. The motorstorm exploit looks more legit but again it isn't working.

I have received no reply from the account of a meeting, so this is a fake, because if it were true he would have written me back.

Hi Leute, also das mit dem Zpack könnt ihr vergessen.
Ich habe keine Antwort mehr von dem bekommen wegen einem Treffen, also ist das ein Fake, weil wenn es echt wäre hätte er mir zurück geschrieben.

The guys at gulli board have contacted the reseller. I think that they got the adress but had a problem with their car.

So, you can go to gulli board and ask them for the address or contact info:
