Ripping Blu-ray Movies with Your PlayStation 3

Those lucky few who have gotten their PlayStation 3's can now rip an exact copy of any Blu-ray disc if they're running Linux. Here's how it works:
Now that the PS3 can run full-blown Linux OS distributions like Yellow Dog Linux, Fedora Core (video), and others, users have found that ripping an exact copy of a Blu-ray movie (as well as PS3 games) is as easy as typing in the following command in the Terminal to create an ISO image: dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/blu-raymovie.iso. Of course, once you've created the file, you can then burn a Blu-ray disc with the ISO image if you have an external Blu-ray burner handy or – most likely the case – just play the movie back from its hard drive or attached storage

As far as I am aware, we can most definitely rip the disc but I do not think that we are able to play the iso on the PS3.

I meant that you cannot play it from the PS3 OS ... you can play it from the linux OS.
