Engadget reports that Paradox has found how to get a dump of files on a UMD disc, the disc system used by the Sony PlayStation Portable. The group has released ISO files for several PSP games.
This includes Wipeout: Pure US, Ridge Racers Japanese and Vampire Chronicles: The Chaos Tower Japanese. The UMD discs use the standard ISO9669 format - so the ISO files can be burned to CDs or DVDs.
The games aren't playable in this format yet, but it's a leap forward because reverse engineers can now get their hands on this stuff.
