Why is it so difficult to find *actual* ISOs of PS3 games?

Post by YelniPeto »

I've begun the very slow process of archiving my PS3 games as pure ISOs (using IrisMan) and it's taking a very long time, particularly for large games (like Uncharted 3 GOTY). However, when I try to find ISOs online to download, it's damn near impossible--they're almost always PS3GAME folders or some other package, and never just a *.ISO file. (For example, the Persona 5 link at the top of this reddit doesn't lead you to an actual ISO, but a PKG installer.) In fact, it's been impossible for me to find a legitimate ISO of Persona 5 USA at all--they're all either PKGs, or PS3GAME folders of the European release of P5, and not the USA version. Ultimately it's fine, I can always just rip my own games, but it would be really great if I could download some of the ISOs.

Can anyone shed any light? Thanks!

you can't find games ".ISO" for ps3, there is only "PS3GAME folders" or ".PKG"
