PS3 uses Blueray disks for games, so the obvious first question, are you going to spend $150 or more on a blueray burner, then buy blueray disks which still aren't exactly cheap, then hope to god your burner isn't junk because blueray disks aren't fun to make coasters of.

What about the virtual games, like the Twilight Hack for the Wii?

You should know that people buy 12x blu-ray burner only to extract the diode..

And no, in fact sonys last patch took away the ability to install another OS, which was pretty important to geohots hack.

It would be pretty awesome if Geohot could still fix that.

Sorry to hear that camino. Geohot reversed sony's other os/hypervisor removal for latest firmware but if you already updated you are SOL for now. He is working on a full crack though. Sorta hilarious to be honest. Long as sony was throwing a bone to the modders their console was practically untouched. Remove linux and now you got Geohot working on a full crack of the firmware instead of what he was originally aiming for.

IF you can afford the blu ray discs, burners, and all the other junk you may as well just buy the game. It will be close to the same price...
