Jailbreak your PlayStation 3 with your Android phone (or TI-84 calculator...)
I should warn you that Sony has just released a firmware fix that renders this hack null and void -- if you've already updated your PS3, you can stop reading now. I should also disclaim that this hack might break your PS3 (but it's extremely unlikely).
But why would you softmod a PS3? To play backups of your scratched game discs, of course! No, seriously, on the off-chance that Sony can track jailbroken consoles, I would strongly suggest that you merely take this as an awesome example console hacker tenacity.
