How to record PS3 games
The PlayStation 3 has many new features that make it one of the most advanced consoles in the world. And it happens that one of these features makes copying PS3 games quite difficult. You see, the PS3 uses Blu-Ray, which is a new type of disc that uses a blue laser to burn content. These discs are more powerful than standard DVDs, and the bad news is that if you want to burn them, you need a blu-ray burner. These aren’t cheap, but they are essential for this tutorial to work.
If you have a blu-ray burner, congratulations, you can burn PS3 discs. To do this, you just need to download a program called Nero. It is available on the Internet and you can download it by searching Google for “Nero Burning Rom”. This software allows you to burn blu-ray discs, which is what PS3 games are.
Once you have downloaded Nero, you should have the ISO of the game on your PC. An ISO file can be downloaded from the Internet (which is illegal) or can be “extracted” from the original game disc. To copy a PS3 game, simply put the original game on your blu ray recorder, open Nero and select “create image file from disc”.
When you have an ISO of the game you want to burn, you will need to open Nero and then select “Burn from Image”. This will open a screen where you can select the file to burn to disc, which means you only need to be able to select your game’s ISO and then let Nero burn it to your disc. One tip here is that you should make sure that the writing speed of the program is set to around 4X, which is the speed that has the highest success rate in our experience. BR discs are not cheap and the last thing you want to do is create a roller coaster.
The trick of this tutorial is to be able to get a working ISO of your game. PS3 game ISOs can be between 10GB and 50GB in size, which means if you try to copy the game and it’s not that size, you have a problem. Although this is the basic way of recording PS3 games, there are some other more intricate details that need to be done as well to ensure that you can play your freshly burned game on your console.
