“Russian most famous console gamer”, GamerSuper, has shared with PS3Hax that he has managed to boot PSP ISO’s off the PS3, via PSGroove and Backup manager! He has posted a POC video you can view below, and has promised us that he will release a tool to make ANY PSP ISO (your legal backup of course) to work and boot off the PS3!
Here is the email GamerSuper sent us:
I’ve been working on console scene for about 9 years already. Sure you didn’t hear of
me ’cause I’ve never made anything special and innovating.
But things change.
I’ve been working on PSP games compatibility on PS3 since I’ve made my jailbreak.
And this week a made a real success. I worked very hard with PS3 SDK, learning PS3
architecture and structure etc and I was able to launch PSP game on the PS3.
It was very hard ’cause I changed a lot in game files and a lot on PS3 internal HDD to
get it work. Unfortanally I can’t describe here how to do it manually – it’s very long
and hard and some components are needed which are not leaked to public, and I’m not
gonna leak them either.
Since principle of re-making game doesn’t differ from game to game, I’m currently
coding a tool which will be able to convert EVERY game from PSP ISO to PS3-compatible
My project will contain of 2 parts:
1). A PC tool in which you specify input PSP ISO and output directory and just press
Convert and wait 5-7 mins. After that you get full PS3 compatible game. It can be done
with EVERY game.
2). A homebrew PKG for PS3 which needs to be launched only once to make some changes
and copy some new files on PS3 internal HDD.
The project won’t be open-source. If you don’t have some documents and files which are
not leaked, you won’t succeed in it, I think.
Here is the video:
Some comments on the video by GamerSuper:
There were some problems with controls since I didn’t set them properly and made
mistake (for example SELECT button was on  and O button didn’t work at all) and a
sound problem (I think I made some mistake when building game, since there was sound
Excellent work indeed! GameSuper also has a blog which he is posting his current progress.
You heard it here first on PS3Hax, stay tuned for more updates!
