    OG is raising money to form a non profit community interest company enabling us to preserve more history than ever before!

    Unfortunately, like most things in life this is going to cost money and we're asking for some help from the community. All users will be given donator status, along with early updates and depending on how much you help us with we'll try to chuck in some free merch!

    This will cost us roughly $850 for two years including business address/phone number etc which is needed to register a business bank account within the UK.

    You can help us by making a custom pledge, or by making a general pledge as it all helps us greatly. We're happy for a one time donators even though Patreon asks monthly. To prevent charge backs we're unable to accept Paypal at this time. Although once live this will be sorted too!

I am putting up for trade my very rare dtcpipdevdex PS3 system, this is a new system type discovered this past month by my friend kuriatsu and me, it has a 160GB Hard Drive.
Similarly to AVTools the hardware isn't different from Debugging Stations and both debug a feature only otherwise available in CEX types, the main difference lies in the firmware and system type which for a dtcpipdevdex there isn't any PUP available.

Here are a couple of pictures:

The features unique to this system type are mainly DTCP-IP Debugging which comes in the way of video play debug, e.g. when video is being played either through the XMB or through a media server the console outputs debugging data through Target Manager's Console Output tab, e.g. here is a log of a GTA V Gameplay video being played through the XMB.

That stuff near the disc eject button is sticker residue some of which is also present in the top-left part in the bottom picture.

I am looking to trade this system for a DECH4000AA (SuperSlim DEX Debugging Station) in similar pristine condition, but could entertain a trade for something else PS3-related, the system right now only has multiMAN (DEX), Movian and Marvel vs Capcom 2 installed, I am not interested in selling it.

If you have any questions or need more information don't hesitate to ask, I usually respond in a few minutes if I am Online or up to an hour if I am not.

Edit: The system is currently on 4.46 dtcpipdevdex OFW, the last picture in the imgur album shows this.
