PlayStation 3 hacked to allow backing up games without invasive console surgery using PS Jailbreak

PS Jailbreak is a USB modchip for PS3 which has emerged recently. It allows users to dump their games on different storage devices like the console’s internal HDD or your external drives. Whats great about this is that you will not need the original disc for playing the subsequent games. This little USB plug and play device installs in just a few seconds. It is compatible with all production models FAT and SLIM. The most amazing thing about this is that it keeps your warranty seal intact.

PlayStation users have been waiting for something like this for a long time. It supports all games but does not allow backup for Bluray movies, DVD movies or past console games. Looking at the benefits of this device, you don’t need to buy expensive Blueray burners and costly blank media. Play backups off your hard drives 2x as fast as the blueray drive so it eliminates the lags and glitches and provides you smoother gameplay.

Here is the video showing a demo:
