PS3 Custom Firmware Running Pirated Software Already

by | @AttackFanboy | on January 11, 2011

The big news from hackers over the last week is that custom firmware for the PS3 has been developed and is easily installable on the console.  Now just a week into this new era, hackers have also gotten a “back-up” game to run on the console with no-disc from the the console’s hard drive.  The game in question:  Castlevania Lords of Shadow.

The hackers by-passed the built in security to fool the PlayStation 3 into thinking that the game is a PlayStation Network game, allowing the console to play the game without a disc.  How this is done?  I have no clue, but it is said that this is beyond the abilities of hacking n00b.

Sony has yet to issue an update that will combat this new custom firmware.
