    Its not official from sony, you might need a chip. I will contact them later today and pose as a retailer. I will probably get then the info I need. You could do that too.

    This could turn into a thread about piracy. Quickly.

    This opens the door for people to rent a game from Blockbuster for 5 bucks and just copy it to the HD. Not good for Sony.

    People have been doing this with the XBox for a while.

    Yeah surely they can't do this, unless they have a master plan for keeping it all secure.

    Sounds great for legitimate gaming, but does make piracy too easy.

    Did you see any Sony logo? Not , so it's a nother company.
    And it's unlawful?

    it's a third party product and I'm 95% sure it's about as legal as a mod chip. I'd be wary of this site as there have been scams like this in the past when sites would pop up and disappear after several months. Just wait and see what happens before you place any faith whatsoever in this product.

    Wait...ps2newz says its being developed by Divineo. It's a reliable company but it would still be best to wait for the ps2 dev scene to come in and take this thing apart from the ground up to make sure it works :)

    Divineo isnt developing but just an official partner, that is a good sign that it has the potential of being real as of what I know they [divineo] are reliable.

    It is sad that this will open up for piracy but I want this as Im tired of loading times and I dont have to switch discs for loading the other game and I will only "risk" my games being scracted when playing online.

    I can see that being very convinient, it would also save on motor wear.

    Too bad sony will shut these guys dwon with a law suit for illegal copies of game such as renting from blockbuster. Even if you do get this you can't play online games that have dnas which are most late 2003- and up games.

    I dont mean to derail this topic, but, does anyone know how to use Gameshark with a backup DVD?
    I have a Magic V modchip, and I entered some codes for it.

    I did it successfully once, but, unsure how.

    Now, when I drop the Gameshark disc in, I cant get it to bootup the Gameshark menu, unless I put the chip in sleep mode, which obviously defeats the backup from working.

    How do you think people were booting backups without a chip? It was the gameshark that allowed people to play backups without using a chip. So it dont matter if you are in safe mode or not. Just download the gameshark backup, then it will boot. select start game then the tray will open. Insert backup then press press the eject button to close, press X as soon as the tray closes. AS SOON AS IT CLOSES! I downloaded the gameshark 4.1 iso and played it with samurai warriors today.:lol:
