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.

It's so incredibly fake just for the simple fact that Sony and Microsoft dont allow people to rent out consoles for profit even though these cafe's exist its against thier terms of use to rent out a console for commercial purposes.

Yes, the video is good, but it does not prove anything. Call me whatever you want but I am still neutral about Zpack.

I have made my statements, you can read them... If Zpack is true, then I will be Rolling On the Floor and Laughing.

If it is fake, you can laugh at me

Zpack = Zfake

NOTE: At the end of the video you can see under construction.

Awesome Video

I really look forward to your final product. I will definitely buy

I'm still not exactly sure what to think... The video supposedly proving it a fake does look quite similar, but the difference that I see is that in the new video you can see icons of the what's new section coming out below the "gpack" logo but in the zpack video you won't see that. I would still like to see some other kind of proof whether it be proving it fake or real, that will make me believe it 100% as I'm sure many others would like to see as well.

Indeed. However, some people may find that the expenses involved may not be worth the thanks at all You're lazy yes, but understandable :] Any news from the guys who were going to visit them? Talk to them? It all seems quiet other than "the car broke" or "he didn't answer." I hate waiting, February is so far away

That video proves nothing it shows how some guy made a vid with crap that looked similar... wow no explanation just here's a proof video it's fake whatever... I saw something a couple of years ago where some guy had a dongle similar to this one and it was running backups then he got arrested by weight of sony wonder if they hired him i'll say it again piracy sells more consoles.
