Are you searching for a way to play your beloved PS3 games on your PS4 console without having to purchase them again or utilize streaming services? In this article, we’ll show you how it’s free with software called PS3HEN.

What is PS3HEN?

PS3HEN is a homebrew enabler (HEN) for the PS3 console that enables unsigned code and applications – including games – without needing either jailbreak or custom firmware (CFW). It works by exploiting an exploit in PS3’s firmware which permits installation of an altered version with an HEN included.

What Do You Need?

  • In order to use PS3HEN and play your PS3 games on a PlayStation 4 console, you will require:

For this guide, you will need a PS3 console with firmware version 4.86 or lower, an USB flash drive with at least 2GB free space, and either a PS4 console running firmware version 7.55 or lower, plus internet access to download necessary files. A step-by-step guide is included for each step in the process.

Here are the steps to play your PS3 games on a PS4 console with PS3HEN:

  • Download the most up-to-date version of PS3HEN from its official website (http://ps3xploit.com/ps3hen_index.html) and save it onto a USB flash drive for quick access.
  • Insert the USB flash drive into your PS3 console and navigate to the Game section of the XMB menu.
  • Select “Install Package Files” and then choose “PS3HEN_installer.pkg” to install PS3HEN on your PS3 console.
  • Once PS3HEN is installed, download the most up-to-date version of PS3 ISO Rebuilder from their official website (http://www.psdevwiki.com/ps3/PS3_ISO_Rebuilder) and save it onto a USB flash drive for future reference.
  • Insert the USB flash drive into your PS3 console and navigate to the Games section of the XMB menu.
  • Select “Install Package Files” and then choose “PS3 ISO Rebuilder.pkg” to install the tool on your PS3 console.
  • Insert the PS3 game disc you wish to play into your console and wait for it to load.
  • Utilize the PS3 ISO Rebuilder tool to generate an ISO image of a game disc and save it onto your USB flash drive.

Eject the game disc and power down your PS3 console.

Insert the USB flash drive into your PlayStation 4 console and navigate to the Media Player section of the main menu.

Select your USB flash drive and then choose the PS3 game ISO file you created to begin playing on your PS4 console.

Limitations and Risks

While PS3HEN allows you to play your PS3 games on your PS4 console for free, there are some restrictions and risks you should be aware of:

Some PS3 games may not be compatible with PS3HEN and some may not work at all.
As PS3HEN is not officially supported by Sony, it could void your warranty or result in being banned from online services.
PS3HEN and downloading games that you do not own may be illegal in your country and could lead to legal repercussions.

Conclusion

If you want to play your PS3 games on your PS4 console without paying again or using a streaming service, PS3HEN offers an easy solution that is free and convenient to try.
