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.

Hi friends. This is the video everyone must follow. (Using only 2 programs + XBOX360 Controller ). We've made a video in 1 hour to present.For me it was not difficult to make. ZPack team are very amateur.

Zpack = Zfake

Can't you go to the gulli forum and talk to the people that have set the appoitment, maybe they can tell you the adress. I think sameone of this forum is on the group that go visit him. Reflecter can you help here??

The other way is to send a message to the people in youtube requesting an adress. But that can take longer...

Lazy indeed! If i was living so close to them - i would've been on the first train.. this (if true) is huge! plus you would be thanked by so many for either proving its 100% or proving its a failed fake.
