A Sony [URL=***********]Network Adapter[/URL], an internet connection & an online game.

[B]Can I play backups online using my Network Adapter?[/B]
All new games have a protection known as DNAS, (which looks for a modchip, or a copied disc) which does prevent backups from being played online. However a work-around is still in progress for this. (For more information on the work around [URL=***********]Click here[/URL])

[B]What is DNAS?[/B]
Basically it's a protection which looks for the disc ID (which cannot be copied) & any bios alterations. (such as a modchip) - If there's any fault it doesn't allow the game online.
