The PlayStation 3 has a lot of new features which make it one of the most advanced consoles in the World. and it happens that one of these features makes it quite difficult to copy PS3 games. You see, the PS3 uses Blu-Ray, which is a brand new type of disc which 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, then congratulations, you can burn PS3 discs. To do this, you just need to download a program called Nero.
