Team Cobra is entering the PS3 Optical Drive Emulator market
We got exclusive tip from developers behind Cobra that they will be producing a ODE for Sony Playstation 3 consoles
We all heard of the upcoming '3k3y' device, but now the market for installing an ODE in the PS3 scene world is heating up as the world's famous Team Cobra behind the Cobra-USB dongle is now going to be producing an Cobra-ODE for playing all your backup PS3 Blu-Ray Game Disc Images directly from any HDD without the need to have your PS3 console on 'custom firmware', which they claim will be 'most advanced PS3 Optical Drive Emulator' ever.
No more infomation is available at the moment, except what is on their official websites, but stay tuned as we bring you more exclusive news!
To the three people and dozens more that will reply causing a 'flame war'.
Answer me this, how can HARDWARE be free?
An ODE is not a DRM dongle it is interface between the ps3 and blu-ray drive, making the PS3 think it is talking to the actual blu-ray drive, not HDD, allowing you to use ORIGINAL FIRMWARE.
Even if the 'scene' released the info for FREE on how to do this, like the Glitch'ing on the X360, you would still have to build a PCBoard, buy the parts and solder it together, and flash an asic with the code, it might be little cheaper but still would cost money.
There is already CFW for FREE, this device is just another option for those wishing to play backups using OFW.
No one is forcing you to read this topic or buy this hardware.
Again it is not dongle. -- As for updating the firmware for cobra-usb dongle, i heard it was in the works, not sure if any update, i will ask.

it would be great (and very often at the announcement of the new device does not support the old one)

If you're talking about the dongle then it is much more functions than a normal CFW (full emulator PS1, PS2 emulator on the console with and without backward compatibility (hopefully in the new firmware will improve its support for consoles without backward compatibility), PSP emulator, play BD/BD3D movies, play all the games without the disc in the drive without the need go to DEX, play games with 4GB+ files from an external HDD without copying the file 4GB+ to an internal HDD. And if you specifically about this product that if they learned how to get the key BD drive with OFW 3.56+, or via PC, then the device can be used at all, even on PS3 that can not be downgraded (with factory firmware 3.60 and above)
