Lite-On Blu-ray drive reads PS3 discs

Knowing that the PS3 games use Blu-ray discs, have you ever wondered about popping in one of your game discs into a Blu-ray drive on your PC to see if you could read it? Since Blu-ray drives are still really expensive, probably not. Even if you did have one it wouldn't do much good, unless you had a Lite-ON DH-401S that is.

That's right, someone has discovered that this specific drive has the uncanny ability to read PS3 Blu-ray discs. Just pick up one of these bad boys and you'll be playing PS3 games on your PC in no time. All you have to do is figure out a way to get your computer to actually play the games. That's just a minor detail, right?

No, you won't likely be playing PS3 games on your PC anytime soon, but I'm sure hackers everywhere are rejoicing at being one step closer. Perhaps they'll find a way to extract useful data, or somehow make copies using this drive. That's not really my cup of tea, but if you're a hardcore hacker, you might consider picking one up.
