    PS3 USB Modchip for Game Backups

    Gamers want an easy way of backing up their expensive PS3 games to prevent wear and tear. Now, a group has come out with something called the PSJailbreak, which allows for playing hard drive backups, and there’s no dangerous console modding required.


    Simply insert the USB dongle, use the included backup tool, and you’ll be able to play games off either the PS3’s internal drive or external storage. Warning: Sony doesn’t like these type of add-ons, and chances are they’ll release firmware updates to counteract the plug-in. The video below shows the process.
