PlayStation 4 can now run backup games

Piracy September 28, 2017

In the past few days, we saw many guides, tutorials and payloads to run PlayStation 4 game backups.

However, you can only run backups on 1.76 firmware right now. Of course, it's hard to have that FW on your console unless you have two consoles. Whatever it is, the news from the PS4 scene are awesome.

Although the first tutorials required the decryption of game files, today two ready-made decrypted dumps released, thanks to Knights of the Fallen (KOTF), and of course there will be more in the future - I hope. Note that this is not a cracked game you can run directly, you have to do some steps in order to play it, like enabling FTP Payload, load the elf loader on your PC and more.

The games are:
Grand.Theft.Auto.V.READNFO.PS4-KOTF (42.7 GB)
Far.Cry.4.READNFO.MULTi7.PS4-KOTF (25.3 GB)

The games that can be run right now are 79 and you can see the full game list here.

Now we are waiting for a newer exploit for higher PS4 Firmware versions.
