How to Play PS3 Games on Multiple PS3’s with Single Disc
If you happen to be on LAN party, this trick will be very helpful to you in order to play games with your friends that they don’t have. But there are certain limitations for it to work and that said, it won’t work for all games.
Two or more PS3 Consoles (it means you can do this on a number of PS3 consoles).
Two or more TV’s (depending on how many PS3 consoles you want to play on).
Resistance: Fall of Man (game).
And a game that you want to play.
1. Let us suppose we want to play Modren warfare 2 on two PS3’s at once for LAN party, and we name them as PS3 A nd PS3 B respectivly.
2. First we turn on PS3 A and insert Resistance:Fall of Man disc.
3. Afterwards we load the RFOM campaign (any level).
4. Once the level gets loaded we pause the game and eject the disc.
5. We insert in the game we want to play. (say MW2)
6. We wait for the disc to be read, then back in RFOM,we click the save button and a new game will begin to load.
At this point one can wonder that why one needs to do the RFOM bypass. The reason is, now you can eject your game (in our case MW2) without Playstation 3 quitting out of software).
Note. Next few steps are critical they will decide if one can play a certain game with this exploit or not. And also these steps will be different for any game one decides to play but the main principle is the same.
Now that MW2 has been loaded, go into the game mode which you would like to play.
We will do the LAN party and configure the settings(but you can play what ever game mode you like)
Now start the game and wait for the level to load. Once its fully loaded we eject the MW2 disc.(We will see that even by ejecting the disc the game will not quit like it normally does, it will be running,that is, because we did a RFOM bypass).
Now we turn on PS3-B .
And repeat steps (but in Step 1,instead of setting up another game we join the lobby of PS3).
This is the most important step because your console might freeze
Once PS3 A has joined the game, and has the level loaded, we eject the disc from PS3 B and insert into PS3 A.
The reason for this is that PS3 A is the host of the lobby. And once the game is over,if PS3 A doesn’t have the disc to read from,both console will crash
As I said earlier that this guide is not for every game and will work only for titles that do not require to read from the disc after the level has loaded. As ROFM bypass is required so, one cant play online with friends unless they have done the bypass too.
