EDIT 6/16/2022 – Guide had the wrong paths for disc games

All of the games from my RPCS3-based repacks can be played on an actual Playstation 3 that is running CFW or HEN. This is useful for some, as you can use them as a way to download games at smaller sizes if you don’t plan on emulating them. They can be copied over via FTP or stored on an external drive after installing. There are a few things that differentiate where to move the files.

Internal Drive:

  •  If the game folder is in RPCS3’s “dev_hdd0/disc”, you simply copy that over to PS3’s “dev_hdd0/GAMES”. Make sure you’re copying over the folder with the title ID (BLUS/BLES).
  •  If the game folder is in RPCS3’s “dev_hdd0/game”, you simply copy that over to the PS3’s “dev_hdd0/game”, and copy any .RAP file(s) from your RPCS3’s “dev_hdd0\home\00000001\exdata” folder to your PS3’s exdata folder. Make sure you’re copying over the folder with the title ID (NPUB/NPEB).

External Drive:

  • CFW – If you’re copying over a game that is located in RPCS3’s dev_hdd0/disc, create a folder called “GAMES” on your external drive, and move your game in to there. If the game is in dev_hdd0/game, create a folder called “GAMEI”, and move the game to there. (Make sure to still copy the .RAPs to the exdata folder on the PS3’s internal drive)
  • HEN – You will have to convert your games to the .ISO format, as HEN cannot play games in the folder format via an external drive. After doing so, create a folder called “PS3ISO” on your external drive, and move your converted .ISOs there. This will not work with games that are in RPCS3’s dev_hdd0/game.

DLC and updates:

DLC content and updates are stored in RPCS3’s dev_hdd0/game, even if the game is in dev_hdd0/disc. Simply copy these over to your PS3’s dev_hdd0/game, and copy over any .RAP file(s) from RPCS3’s “dev_hdd0\home\00000001\exdata” folder to your PS3’s exdata folder, as it is required for DLC to work. DLC and updates must be on the PS3’s internal drive, and cannot be stored on an external drive.

NOTE: This guide implies you’re trying to move the game to your PS3 after installing. You obviously cannot install a repack on an actual PS3, silly!
