PS 3 games are great without any slightest of doubt. Over the years, I’ve spent a lot of money collecting games and I love to look at my collection. I often allow my kid to play the PS3 and he has learned to change game disks as per his choice. Though I’m happy with his learning curve, however, I’m always worried that my kid will cause scratches on the games disk or break etc. I want to keep the games in the best possible condition, but, at the same time I’m aware that it is not entirely possible.
I started looking at options to copy the PS3 games and save them somewhere so that I can have a copy in the event my worst nightmare comes true. I found that it is possible to copy PS3 games and save them elsewhere. Let me elaborate on how to copy PS3 games.
How to Copy PS3 Games
There are primarily 2 ways to copy PS3 games.
First one is by using Modchip. Using Modchip is the traditional way to create game backups by circumventing the security measures that prevent you from making copies of the games. The negative aspect is that modchip modifiles the console and BIOS of your computer in order to make you the copy of the PS3 game. However, it is not something we recommend because of it’s obvious negative aspects.
Second option to copy PS3 games is by using a specialized software. I prefer this option because I find it convenient (no console modifications are needed).
