PlayStation 3 ROMs Leak onto Internet

According to posts from both hacker and Linux homebrew communities, the PlayStation 3’s Blu-Ray disc format has been cracked, with disc dumps appearing on all major peer-to-peer and torrent sites over the weekend. Although the files cannot be booted by any PlayStation 3 unit as they stand today, this is the first worrying step towards cracking the platform which is barely a week old in the US.

Apparently, the dumps of the game discs were achieved by first installing the Linux operating system on the PlayStation 3.
