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


Sponsored Links
273w 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.

Me too. The site, if this is true, only will be online next month. So the only way to know if this is true is the information that the people who have bougth or from people that gonna meet people who have the zpack. It will be a Hell of a wait!!!

Although I am neutral, I am more on the side of people who think that it is real. None of the evidences telling the "Zpack is Fake" did not convince me actually.

Besides that, as I have stated before, it looks more realistic than it looks it's fake. Yes, different accounts of same person and videos from same room... But believe me if I have done such a big hack, I woıuld really try to hide my identity.

My problem is I am very impatient Fake or real, I want to learn it now

Scam or miracle, probably by the weekend we will learn

That's the thing about read only / write protect, nothing on the USB is touched, even if an antivirus program sees it as being evil.


Regardless of whether this is real or not (leaning heavily towards the latter), methinks that most companies think that the majority of their consumer base is not capable of writing their own software or coding on Linux.

My own thoughts:

1) Why would the overlay show up under the PSN area? Only thing I can think of there is a web proxy that replaces the images (thus probably why you we a windows style window)

2) "Don't plug the usb into a PC else it'll be damaged (especially by AV software)" Sounds dumb to me. What is to stop me from mounting it READ ONLY in Windows using software I wrote or Linux with a RO flag in the mount command? That's the thing about read only / write protect, nothing on the USB is touched, even if an antivirus program sees it as being evil.

3) TV Picture in Picture w/ a PC if done right.

I think PayPal should put a flag on this account. Not closing it but watching it and holding the funds for a while. Too suspicous...

If it is a cheap chinese disk case, it might not... Even some quality external disk cases does not blink. Some LEDs are just there to show that there is power...
