I agree with jlogan2042.

Even if a disc manufacturer brought out larger capacity discs, every XGD3 game has AP2.5 protection, so every time the dashboard is updated all they have to do is update the DAE table (as they have been doing already) and you’d have to re-patch and re-burn every single XGD3 game. It’s not like with XGD2 games where there were only 6 affected titles. The new dashboard update in November is likely to have further protection in it too.

The only real hope for custom firmware going forward is if someone finds a way to completely defeat AP2.5 (which nobody has done yet) and if Verbatim or whoever bring out discs large enough to fit the games on to.
