BD Emulation has been a feature of the PS3 since the beginning - just not on retail units.
On a debug unit you use the SDK to generate emu files (disc image) and they go onto a specially formatted HDD.
Plug into a debug and away you go.. Not with retail games of course
Sort of like we do with the WII to simplify it. Custom format, read by a custom tool (wbfs)
i thought about dex immediately. so why is it easier to build such a device than give out cex2dex? now it seems to me they want to make profit on retails with such "features". don't tell me this comes from scratch...
