Video: ZPack for PS3 - The First PlayStation 3 Backup System?!


Sponsored Links
269w 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.

I guess everyone agrees that the video is obviously fake!! if the z pack actually existed then what would a person do with the installation disk since you don't need it once you have installed it (as seen in the first video). It would allow anyone to sell the disk after buying it. There would many copies of the disk available online for less then. This just doesn't add up.

In this video, the time thing looks fake beacuse it hangs the whole time. But in original Zpack video the time freezes only during patching which, as I have stated before, makes the video real since they are "really" pathching the console with low level access ....or the best fake ever...

If it is fake, those guys are real bad that made us think that they have low level access (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Low-level_programming_language) to PS3 Anyway, those guys know that a low level acces can cause a clock slow down

And the yellow item glows and when the keyboard appears in the other video the background turns more dark... Good try

What are you talkin about? There is no renting or other stuff... How did you come up with that?

Anyway, today I have watched the Zpack video again in slow motion, especially looking at the part that is told to be fake on gulli board:



The result: There was nothing fishy.

- The image on the upper left side is directly from PS3. Thus, its colors are true. But the image we see on the camera is distorted by the light that is coming from the tv.

- At that time of the image, actually TV's screen is black and everthing is normal. But since the TV is probably not LED but LCD, the backlight effects the image on the cam.

Another thing is the response times of two videos. The video on the upper left part was coming after the cam's capture. And this was completely the same during the video.

To sum up, as I have stated before, there is no convincing proof that Zpack is fake. Indeed it looks more realistic...

And how will you prove to us that it really works? Look at all the comments here. We cannot allow us to simply believe sentences like "I called a turk and he had it".
