    There is going to be a big debate around this, we were unsure if we should post or not, but this is huge news in the PS3 Scene.

    A group known as “Duplex” has done what no one else has managed to and decrypt/crack PSN games, that are fully playable on 3.55 CFW, what this could mean for us, is that we could possibly unlock the PSN games that we own, that lost their deactivation’s through various actions committed on the PS3, here is a quote from “Duplex”:

    Since no scene group managed yet, we thought it’s time to work on some
    PSN games to give everyone something to play for CFW 3.55
    Fully decrypted .elfs are included as proof and of course for
    educational purposes

    They have managed to crack the following games:

    Critter Crunch
    Savage Moon
    Galaga Legions DX
    Ricochet HD
    Spare Parts
    Deadliest Warrior Legends
    Marvel vs Capcom 2
    Earthworm Jim HD
    Deadliest Warrior The Game
    Dream Chronicles
    Castle Crashers
    Bomberman Ultra
    BloodRayne Betrayal
    Blast Factor
    Beyond Good and Evil HD
    Bejeweled 2
    Alien Breed Trilogy

    We do not condone piracy, so no linking to any of these files, the reason for this thread, is merely for news, anyone providing any such links, will immediately be banned, without warning.


    Stay tuned for more breaking scene news at PS3Hax.

      Yes this is piracy and we don't promote piracy, it is also big news, so need to try and front page it without seeming to promote piracy.

      this is great news, you don't have to look at it from the piracy view, you must look at it from the view "what have these guys discoreved and what can we do with it"? thanks for the news.

      I wouldn't mind seeing some animated Dynamic Themes cracked. I brought so many on my OFW console but don't know how to get them off it to give to someone to try crack them

      If someone knows how to do it, PM me so I can try it.
      I'm good to share my themes with everyone

      ♫ "Ladies and gentlemen....He's gonna give away a bunch of P-S-N STUFF!" ♫

      Big news indeed. Scary though.

      I think Sony gonna have blue (or maybe red) balls now.

      Massive news, Whether it's good or bad is up to the individual user but I know I bought a lot of stuff on PSN that I haven't been able to use since CFW so it is good news for me.

      One question, does this mean that Sony could/will start encrypting (unsure if that's the right word) PSN stuff to only work on 3.7+ fw? (That is of course if they don't already.)

      This is great news! Many friends and I have 2 systems, 1 'official' for playing online, and 1 for emulators and backups. Now we can play legitimately purchased PSN games on the hacked systems. Note to world: There ARE people that use CFWs to do things other than pirate.

      Well I want Resident Evil Revival Selection so I can patch the game in English but my actual question is:
      I guess PSOne classics won't work right?(could be wrong)
      Would PSP Minis?

      I agree, sure this is big news but I hardly call it dedication compared to why we've seen as of recent, Linux, rebug, the list goes on for

      hey i agree with you ppl , the linux and homebrew is pretty cool. its just hard to ignore the fact that only 10 % of users really use the linux. i think a very significantly higher % of ppl would use this. just my 2 cents btw

      gotta love it when new advances come from the warez scene. Duplex has done a lot already, by going back and ripping the older PS3 games that were released when we had no jailbreak for the PS3 but we had a backmanager that incorrectly ripped the bluray games. I was rather upset when the PS3 was first jailbroke because I had backups from 07 and 08 that did not work at all but were holding up disk space for so many years. This is just as great, I would love to access some of my DLC content.

      and the imp part of my comment is "team", there are guys that work alone like our homebrew developers, i understand they have a life outside of this, and im very grateful for everything that they come out with. but when u work as a team u got more minds working on it. and if they find out sumthing they should release it. inoe they dont owe me crap but its like saying that i have found the cure to cancer but i wont release it because the govt doesnt want me to!!

      where else would devs be working on piracy stuff other than a warez site . all this stuff could of came out a long time ago but the people who could didnt support piracy . so it never came out till some one else started working on it

      Wow...this is wonderful news. Too bad it seems to be nothing but a bunch of pirated games...I want to unlock my own content that was lost when my hard drive got corrupted. I can't wait for source code. I might actually buy the Fallout NV DLCs once I can actually install them.

      Piracy? Yeah...there will be piracy. If Sony were not so committed to attacking the innocent, then pirates wouldn't have just won this major battle. Give me liberty or give me death (Notice I didn't say anything about pirates? That is because I don't care about them in this equation...if it is a choice between slavery for all or the freedom for people to become pirates, I choose freedom).

      Aaaarrrggh! Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me...lol. Yep I said it and I don't mind. I've spent thousands upon thousands in the gaming industry since I bought my first Atari back in the early 80's. What we're dealing with here is Sony, the biggest pirate of the industry. They haven't innovated much. They've mostly stolen technology and improved upon it. They're more like the Dupont of the gaming industry. They don't make the products you use, they make the products you use better. Let's be honest, PS1 reeked of 3DO, the PS2 was cleverly marketed after the dreamcast, and seemed eerily like the same thing but with dvd playback. PSN was directly in response to XBOX Live. The PS3 is more of the same with Bluray...We'll tell LG you said "Hi!" During that time they've also "imported" joysticks, the rumble feature, and now they want us to believe that "Move" is original. At least that's what they pay publishers to print. Essentially they sue and harass any dev who exploits the PS3 which is the same way Sony came up in the game. If they're really worried about what people do with their consoles after they buy them, then why aren't aren't they pursuing terrorists who tear out the processors in them to make bombs? I guess we already know the answer to that...MONEY! They actually make money selling those machines to the terrorists. I'm not saying the PS3 is a bad system but I am saying Sony has bad practices. I know the rules and piracy's illegal but don't expect me to feel bad about it or for Sony to get any sympathy here.

      Ok I can't knock how you feel about piracy, I have no issue's with you not supporting piracy, But please stop making out that this is just pure piracy!

      Yes it could be piracy for some, But it can also be a way for some of us to reactivate our legit deactivated PSN games.
      (Here in the UK it is perfectly legal to make and use a backup copy providing you have the original).

      So the way I see it is this, If its ok to reflash your PS3 with MFW, And Its ok to run homebrew on our PS3's, Then there shouldnt be a problem running legit backups.
      Anyone that doesnt have an issue with using MFW, But has issue's with running legit backups on their PS3 is ignorant and single minded.

      Legally I can own and use backups, But using MFW, Hacking the PS3, Or changing protected content is either illegal or debatable.

      Whats the difference between using MFW, Homebrew, And playing legit backups!?, Oh and morals don't come into it at this point!, Try and justify it from a legal perspective.

      It would be nice if a way was found to run all our DD/DLC which was lost from CFW for whatever reason.

      Legally it is Piracy to distribute it, or even give details on how it was done and that is what Greg is meaning. I am not saying it's right that it is that way, but as the saying goes 'The Law is an Ass' lol

      As to the MFW etc, the distributed MFW is against the rules, but the homebrew is not as the authors of it do not need to have broken any rules to have written it unless they either give out MFW with it, or charge a fee for it.

      There's another tool you could use instead, It does the same thing but its better, It can copy the act.dat file to any user account.
      Its called "react-dat.pkg".

      Hmmm, Yeah I see what you're saying, But to be perfectly honest its not that simple, It depends on the laws in your own country.

      In the UK, Its piracy to distribute the backup, But Its not piracy to upload it for storage for your own personal use.
      In the UK its not illegal to give details on how such was achieved.
      In the UK its illegal to change or modify protected material.
      In the UK its illegal to use illegally modified material.

      I'm in UK, and trust me, it's illegal to distribute hacked (or even un-hacked) software without the original authors/owners permission, or share the information that enables an individual to hack it as that is taken as 'Circumventing Copyright Protection.'

      You can alter whatever you want on something you own for your own personal use and you CAN change or modify protected material as long as you do NOT use it for purposes which lead to Piracy etc.

      If you upload it to a place that is not secure (ie password protected and ONLY you have the password), you can then be taken as responsible for it's distribution and fined to the extent that is deemed to be 'lost profits' of the owners of it.

      As I said, That Law is an Ass lol

      You can alter whatever you want on something you own for your own personal use and you CAN change or modify protected material as long as you do NOT use it for purposes which lead to Piracy etc.

      If you upload it to a place that is not secure (ie password protected and you ONLY have the password), you can then be taken as responsible for it's distribution and fined to the extent that is deemed to be 'lost profits' of the owners of it.

      As I said, That Law is an Ass lol
      Mate I mean no disrespect, But you are very wrong in most of what you're saying, And I still stick by what I said in my other post. ;-)

      I didnt say it was legal to distribute protected content, I said its pefectly legal to upload our own backups for storage for our own use, Regardless of if its password protected or not.
      And its not legal to alter protected content even if you own it, Checkout the copy right laws and you will see. ;-) LOL

      Way to go Duplex, they are certainly making a name for themselves. I like their style.

      Whether you see this as piracy or allowing people to play stuff they already paid for I'm just glad there is a serious cracking team involved in the PS3 scene.

      Ok people need to start using the word piracy correctly, Piracy refers to an illegal act.
      eg: Owning a copy of protected media without owning the orignal, Knowingly distributing copy protected media, Lending your mate any digital media even if they're orignals or copys, Tampering with copy protected media.
      This is in the UK, I'm not sure about any other countrys law. (Check out the laws for your own country).

      In the uk were allowed to make and use a copy of any protected media providing we own the originals, THIS IS NOT PIRACY AND IT SHOULD'NT BE REFERRED TO AS SUCH. CHECK IT OUT FOR YOUR SELFS IF YOU DONT BELIEVE ME.

      It's very telling the way piracy related information never gets trolled to the same degree as things which mainly interest developers, legit users and non-pirates.

      I too am in favour of freedom. Freedom enables us to do with our devices what we wish and unfortunately usually comes at the expense of permitting piracy. That said I've previously bought games which I could *only* play by backing up the disk and performing various fixes (eboot replacements, installing various pkg updates etc) to run on 3.55fw hence one mustn't simply assume that all who take advantage of such advances are pirates. There will be some who have paid for psn content who are unable to use it.

      Many thanks to those responsible for one of today's great strides forward. I love this scene!

      nothing against anyone,not trying to make anyone in to pirate also lol,but let us get some facts straight,having jailbreaked ps3 means no psn and no buying those games,so why not use them as long as they are released,and besides that is the fun part in having jailbreked ps3,if anyone really thinks that he should not download those game or any other then i think it should stay on original FW and do all the stuff legit,just sayin.

      No, read his post again, he said provided that you own the originals. So if you don't own any of the games, but download and play them, then it IS piracy and it IS illegal.

      His point was a small but important distinction, that use of backup copies are not automatically piracy. People often make the jump that downloading = piracy, which is not true if you own the original.

      At least that's what I think he is saying, since that is the truth.

      Like I tried to point out before, you are missing the point that these would Not be your copies that you download. Add to that the fact that someone has to upload them to the public (who may or may not have the original) and it is just about the most direct and blatant act of Piracy possible.

      The way around it is to declare that you have an original disk, but even then it is Piracy as nowhere in Sonys' TOS (Or UK CopyRight Laws) does it allow for you to share a legal BACKUP with anyone else

      No. He's claiming if you do own them, and just run backups of them instead of the originals, that isn't piracy. And he's right.

      But yeah - most people will just download the games and play them. That is Piracy.

      I understood that, but he is also saying that it shouldn't be labeled as piracy, when downloading them of the net is considered piracy, there is a huge difference between backing a game up yourself and downloading one of the internet.

      If we allowed linking of those files on the forum, we could get into big trouble, because they are illegal.

      It's on topic because these PSN games aren't available anywhere but the PSN - so ultimately if you don't already own these, it's piracy.

      ok lets get this straight, nobody is too post links to warez, torrents or any place to have copyrighted material. you all know that of course. lol my first post. but hey!!!

      points are, if you have a original game on disc. i think you can just download it again and play it. its not illegal. well ireland and uk its not, your countries it maybe, im not arguing that. so i think that is the point these people are saying and thats it. now lets get on with the thread. yay

      i say the sdk leaked recently lead to the drm being overcame.

      There are rules within rules and as usual with legalise they do walk over each other at times, but this quote should make it plain enough me thinks .........

      7.Restricted acts
      It is an offence to perform any of the following acts without the consent of the owner:

      Copy the work.

      Rent, lend or issue copies of the work to the public.

      Perform, broadcast or show the work in public.

      Adapt the work.

      But, as you say, rules within rules and that quote is pretty vague. From my small amount of research around the net it seems it is legal to make a backup copy in the UK but it is illegal to have/use the tools or describe the method to circumvent copy protection to make said backup copy.

      Again, this is just my interpretation of what a few websites say and basically: I don't know. Just don't like seeing posts that state categorically that it is legal/illegal to make backups without a reference.

      Correct, it IS legal to make a backup of your owned games, films, music etc, but it is NOT legal to share that with anyone else, or download a copy from anyone or anywhere else as that is Not a backup of the original media you own.

      It IS a load of pants, but that is the law as it stands lol

      EDIT Technically it is illegal to record a program from the TV (even the BBC in Uk when you DO have a TV licence), but they let that pass as it is taken as read that no gain to you nor loss to author/owner will be made from it

      Umm i agree but It's a faulty way of thinking.

      You are NOT hitting Sony by pirating PSN games, you are hitting developers and publishing companies.
      Boycooting their products it's the correct way to do that, which hurts them instantly ALOT.

      I -will- pirate the games I want to play and they have a PSN Pass system to hit intentionally both Sony and the developers/publishing companies for allowing such thing being passed so easy with no reaction. If developers tell to Sony, unless they don't require them to use that PSN Pass on their game they won't develop the game for that platform but they will for, let's say XBOX360, Sony will be forced to drop that feature. Something simmilar with what happened with 3DS and the locked savegames to hit the used market, which resulted to people being exagerated with such thing and Nintendo announced almost in days that they are aware that this thing made everyone crazy and they'll drop it.
      Also I heard alot of people skipping PSVita's launchdate, if that infact turns out true and even the half of them will turn their backs to PSVita, Sony will face some deadly-serious issues, best case scenario for them is that they will be forced to drop it's price very fast, just like what happened with 3DS.

      Where did you get that idea from?, I never said any such thing.
      I stated ITS ILLEGAL TO PLAY OR USE ANY DIGITAL MEDIA IF YOU DONT OWN THE ORIGNALS, I ALSO STATED THAT OWNING A BACKUP OF ANY DIGITAL MEDIA IS PERFECTLY LEGAL PROVIDING YOU OWN THE ORIGINAL.
      I ALSO STATED THAT ITS OFFENCE TO LEND ANY DIGITAL MEDIA TO YOUR FRIENDS/FAMILEY, OR RENT THEM OUT.

      Please guy's dont take offence, I'm not bashing anyone or trying to cause any trouble in any way what so ever, I'm just trying to enlighten the people that didnt know this, Theres lots of misinformation flying about and I thought that this topic could benefit from this info.

      I STATE AGAIN, PLEASE DOUBLE AND TRIPLE CHECK THE LAWS IN YOUR OWN COUNTRY, ITS A GOOD IDEA TO CHECK WHAT I'VE STAED TOO, IN FACT I THINK ITS A GOOD IDEA TO DOUBLE CHECK ANY INFO TO ANY TOPIC IF YOUR UNSURE ABOUT ANYTHING.

      I'M NOT ASKING ANYONE TO TAKE MY WORD ON SAID TOPIC, I'M SAYING CHECK IT OUT FOR YOUR SELFS.

      If you're looking for US citations, you could go directly to the federal source at 17 USC 107: http://www.copyright.gov/title17/92chap1.html#107

      The doctrine of fair use is well-established within copyright law, and while there hasn't yet been a good case bringing video games within those protections, there soon will be.

      Wrong.

      DUPLEX are a warez scene group. They upload their releases directly and only to private scene FTP servers. They have nothing to do with file-sharing and torrents sites. Every scene release you see on a torrent site etc is leaked from private FTP source.

      It doesnt matter if you made the copy your self or if you downloaded it, AS LONG AS YOU OWN THE ORIGINAL. Show me any UK legal document thats clearly states its illegal to download a copy even if you own the original?, How you make or obtain your legit copy is up to you, However, It is illegal to download if you dont own the original.
      Oh and if I uploaded a copy to a storage site for my own use, But someone located it and downloaded it without owning the original then it is them that is breaking the law and not the person who uploaded it, UNLESS IT CAN BE PROVEN THAT THE PERSON WHO UPLOADED UPLOADED IT FOR PIRACY USE.

      Thanks but I'm in the UK.

      Correct me if I'm wrong but Fair use is completely unrelated isn't it? As stated, I know next to nothing about copyright law so apologies if I'm wrong and I'm not looking to ask obnoxious questions just for the sake of it, genuinely interested but unable to make sense of even basic legalese.

      Who cares? Do what you got to do and shut up about it. No one cares if you own the game or not. People have been talking circles arond this &$@?! for too many years. It's the same arguments over and over and over again. Back and forth. This is a major scene development. Leave it at that. No need to dissect it to the point of nausea.

      You do you. Leave everyone else out of it.

      Mate I 100% agree with you in regards to your reasons for not linking to the files, I ACTUALLY THINK IT MAKES ALOT OF SENSE, THE SITE COULD GO DOWN OVER SOMETHING LIKE THAT, AND NONE OF US WANT THAT TO HAPPEN, But I have to strongly to disagree with what you said about downloading backups is piracy, Its only piracy for the people downloading and using them when they dont own the originals.

      Oh and yes were talking not moaning *****ing or flamming.
      It actually makes a nice change to be able to talk about such things without everyone flamming everyone.

      ok lets get this straight, nobody is too post links to warez, torrents or any place to have copyrighted material. you all know that of course. lol my first post. but hey!!!

      points are, if you have a original game on disc. i think you can just download it again and play it. its not illegal. well ireland and uk its not, your countries it maybe, im not arguing that. so i think that is the point these people are saying and thats it. now lets get on with the thread. yay

      i say the sdk leaked recently lead to the drm being overcame.
      I think I read somewhere that the games were for firmwares we already have the keys for, But duplex managed to bypass the activasion.
      I could be very very wrong on this though. LOL

      Nope YOU are wrong, I KNOW, period. causse i am not going to link to a site wich conctains piracy, but i DO know is that there mods is getting the games straight from duplex themselves; aswell as other great groups.
      but i am not going to debate this.

      I think it could be possible, But I also think its unlikely until we get those new keys, I think all they done was bypass the activasion somehow.
      I probably wrong on this, Maybe someone could clear things up on this?

      Boycooting their products it's the correct way to do that, which hurts them instantly ALOT.

      I -will- pirate the games I want to play and they have a PSN Pass system to hit intentionally both Sony and the developers/publishing companies for allowing such thing being passed so easy with no reaction. If developers tell to Sony, unless they don't require them to use that PSN Pass on their game they won't develop the game for that platform but they will for, let's say XBOX360, Sony will be forced to drop that feature. Something simmilar with what happened with 3DS and the locked savegames to hit the used market, which resulted to people being exagerated with such thing and Nintendo announced almost in days that they are aware that this thing made everyone crazy and they'll drop it.
      Also I heard alot of people skipping PSVita's launchdate, if that infact turns out true and even the half of them will turn their backs to PSVita, Sony will face some deadly-serious issues, best case scenario for them is that they will be forced to drop it's price very fast, just like what happened with 3DS.
      True ,i only speak of myself .+ I have 3 PS3s & 1 is OFW PS3 .Other 355s 1 has my DLC other doesn't! I want what is mine ,not my problem ,if others do not respect the laws . I know its not right for people who did not buy DLC to DL it ! We already know this in movies,software pc games i can keep going .

      Boycott don't do nothing to a company like Sony,the have the Music/movies/Games/Much much more to back them up etc . How many people would it take for Sony to allow us who don't want to update our ps3 ,to download what we own NEVER WILL HAPPEN ! They force unwanted software on us + try to disable are DvD/movie play back cinavia .I want to use the PS3 for what it is made for ! Music,media,games,other OS etc .. Why would they code a video icon for the XmB then pull shady move -> cinavia = Another example of them taking away features ! Instead preserving are are high priced movies + allot of crap movies.

      People in general who are not as careful = Swapping discs & scratching them = eventually unusable .Sony is doing this so they can drain the average working man of there money & force them to go out & buy another DvD ! I mean damn what the hell is the ipod going to be used for if we cant use it for movies & media mp3s period ! Not cool !

      Xbox Allows to backup games to the hard drive to play. Sony with there power trips + such a controlling company & so hard up on Piracy for a excuse to over power the net to there liking is just plain( WRONG ). Also Blocking us like myself who paid a extremely large amount of money in DLC. If total the amount up you would not believe me ! I am going to ask my bank to send me a full list of all my DLC purchases. One day i will post the amount i spent. Well see how anybody else would feels if they get robbed out of what they bought like myself. Just cause we have a brain & a decision to stay on 355 ,we don't deserve what we paid for ?

      I already Boycott them & it will never work ! It would take 50% of there customers to massively hit there income/Profits ! This will never happen ,especially 50+% does not read the Terms of Service ! I bought my DLC not knowing i needed them to keep it activated . Not cool ,were do they mention this to there customers i never seen this ,or i would have never spent this money .I dont buy nothing from PS store anymore cause i don't like them in control of what i buy = It is mine not theirs after i buy anything = This is not leasing a car ? We buy we own ,Bottom like ! If this seemed like retaliation yes against sony & my money spent ,is all i am saying .I worked hard for my money & now i suffer from my job .

      so somebody finally put to use npdrm keys that have been on the ps3dev wiki talk pages for AGES! people complain about how the scene is slow, blah de frickin blah. guess what most of the Devs aren't going to give you everything on a silver platter. nah they will give you the silver platter, the food to go on it, the utensils, and everything else. all you got to do is prepare your platter and hell they will help you do that if you ask, but guess what............ nobody even tries

      want PSN..... read the xi passphrase wiki page(the answer to you problem is there if you can figure it out)
      want new keys........... read the wiki pages and the talk pages ( they love to hide hints and tips on them)

      anyways people should pay more attention to the PS3 Dev wiki..... you might learn something

PS i live in South Africa... my feeling towards this exploit is if Sony can screw there legitimate customers over it is only fair that the Hackers screw them over... you reap what you sow Sony

      To be honest, the only thing I want from PSN are my two god of war PSP games I bought and could never get back as I didn't want to risk perma ban using those PSN bypasses that existed.

      I am going to buy the remastered PS3 game when it comes out to put in safely in my collectors pandoras box, but I bet it will require 3.60+ to play. I am done with everything Sony, thank god there will be no more God of War games or I would have to keep buying Sony products cuz of that game.

      Anyone know if Chains of Olympus and ghost of sparta are available?

      Back on topic, i hope sony would let this unseen, but i don't think so
      Dude you absolutely have no clue what you are talking about.


      YES teh releases are from teh group DUPLEX , But what I was saying is wrong is that you said that DUPLEX post the releases on fourms etc, they do NOT.

      They are a scene group that post on FTP. When you see their releases on forums and torrent sites its simply because they have been shared on them, The group doesnt directly post them themselves.

      I have been in this game many years and also member of some groups, I know what the f_uck im talking about dude.

      You know, iv been following the ps3 scene for quite some time now, iv not contributed much, but I really do appreciate everything the people have done for the ps3 scene, from the entertaining comments , good or bad to the major advances some of the more genial devs, pirate, non pirate, useless (to the likes of me) or majorly beneficial (kemew firmware) I'd like to thank everyone for enhancing my ps3 experience, I am very greatfull to everyone! Iv been out on the good stuff, so im loving everyone at the moment, if u get my drift, but the gratitude is there all the same, merry Xmas to u all and I hope the new year brings some great advances for us all! And ffs stop flaming, it really is childish and unproductive, iv just got battlefield 3 for nothing and nearly **** my pants it was so good, thank u all!
