January 2, 2010 // 4:29 am - 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.

fellas, lets focus out attention on something a little more realistic like the motor storm exploit. this whole zpack thing is getting out of hand. if it is real & once we have rock solid proof, i know it will be posted here. honestly the whole operation is starting to seem fishy, so if it looks, walks, & quacks like a duck... its definitely an apple. please people don't sell your car for gas money.

You guys who say that it's not a 100% proven fake are right, but let's say it's 99% fake because of the known facts.

Another fishy thing: Their website is down because of traffic. Now they say that there will be a new website in february, but I ask you this: Would you really wait 1 month until you can start selling your product again, which in this case likely gains 90% of the production cost? No, you wouldn't. You would come up with a temporary solution (no fancy design yet, but at least a form to order your product) until the full site is ready.

I think from now on, unless you have ordered the supposed Z-Pack, received it, and can PHYSICALLY confirm that it is indeed fake, then don't comment with a useless reply. Until then, shut it.

Find some way to contribute to the community by posting news, POSSIBLY regarding the Z-Pack itself, or other areas of interest. I apologize if I seem to be ranting, I am just tired of viewing these posts which add no structural analysis/argument to the topic.

Why should anyone spend money on a fake? I doubt someone would use a windows CreateWindow API on a PS3, unless there are any ports.

If they really send out Zpacks, the first people should get them by Thursday/Friday next week.

But I'm already looking forward to CJPC or Geohot posting great news about sudden progress
