I find it hilarious that most people posting "failboat" or "haha" haven't even read the article. It looks as if you're just reading the title (of which is misleading), and posting.
I call bs until there is some concrete proof. Shady videos like that have come out for the PS3's hacking scene since the console came out.
I can't tell you how many videos people thought were legit over the past 4 years where it turned out to be a sham. I call this one a hoax just as much. Who is this guy? Where did he come from? Where is the proof? Where is the software itself? And how did he even do it? You don't just simply walk into a CFW on a platform that has been unhackable till now.
I especially like this:
13:15] <MyCE> Many seem to be claiming that your 3.60 hack video is fake, is it legit?
[13:15] <ThatBoringHacker> yeah
[13:15] <ThatBoringHacker> they don’t like change is the thing
[13:15] <ThatBoringHacker> haha
Right. "They don't like change" is why people are calling it a fake. XD
01[13:17] <MyCE> so you think it was a fluke?
01[13:18] <MyCE> or is it something that you did to your console before installing 3.6?
[13:18] <ThatBoringHacker> no clue what happened

And playing games off an HDD is a big deal. Blu-Ray read speeds are soooo slow, a Blu-Ray movie on PS3 has load times. Games are a nightmare.
And potentially more fps.
BluRay players have loading times on Bluray movies. It has to do with the Bluray software (typically java based menus). Whether you throw The Social Network on a PS3 or a Samsung player, you'll get a nice long loading screen with a loading bar. But here is the best part which makes your claim silly: Ironically the PS3 is one of the fastest BluRay players to date still.
It turns on and has faster loading times for movies faster then even the most recent, priciest, advanced BluRay players on the market. Google it. If I recall, Bluray.com is the one of the most recent and detailed benchmarks.
And no there is no potentially more FPS. The PS3 has software limitations with reading and writing on its hard drive. It's been proven by people like Eurogamer's Digital Foundry that most games, even with a SSD, do not load faster and even sometimes slower with HDD installations depending on the method used.
The only reason games like GT5 load faster with an SSD (by the way, it's one of the only games out of like 5 that do) is because GT5 dumps thousands
of individual files onto your drive. Every other game drops huge archives. There are pros and cons to both, but either way - it has very little to do with the Bluray player in the end, and even if you installed an entire PS3 game onto your hard drive - you won't get better loading speeds (at least significantly) or (lol) FPS. The only time the FPS claim would make sense would be a sandbox game like Fallout but even then that's just load stutter not FPS.Edited by OmegaNemesis28 - 3/18/11 at 3:15pm
