SKFU got his hands on a Vita devkit…says it has vulnerabilities that could help hacking it

PS3/PS Vita Hacker SKFU has been reported to be selling a Developer model of a PS Vita. He says the device could be used to further understand the inner workings of Retail Units, and maybe help hacking the PS Vita

He's selling it because he couldn't do anything with it and he's hoping Sony will swoop in and pay a load of cash for it.

What is this obsession hackers have got with Sony gaming devices, and what is this obsession with constantly promoting that idea through articles on here?

Silly gameAr2103d ago

Yeah, it's kind of pathetic.

They strive on sony products because there the only ones who put up a fight and keep there systems hack free. That and they are jobless freeloading basement dwellers with to much time on there hands.

You like to think hackers are jobless because you can't accept the idea that a guy can be both clever AND have a normal life :)

hackers tend to make quite a bit of money

Im not justifying there actions but I have a friend who has a $80,000 a year professional job and hacks as a hobby.

I asked him once why does he risk his job by hacking and said that he does not do it for money or fame but for the challenge.

Regardless of what happened with the PS3 hack, Sony is a very good security company and he said that the Vita is built like fort Knox.

It's not just Sony devices. It's happened on the Wii, DS, Xbox 360, and keeps happening on the PC as well.

Hackers have an obsession with all major consumer electronics. Some for interest, some to make money off it. There are hackers out there with more skill than any major company (a lot of them work for major companies and still hack hardware as a hobby - that's usually how they landed their job).

I have never liked the seemingly too positive attitude towards emulation and hacking on this and other sites myself...

As for Targetting sony, Sony did that to themselves. Sort of. They stepped into a bear trap with their overtly public actions against geohot and garnered the ire of anonomys, and the hacking public has painted a giant target on them ever since.

Why am i not surprised to hear you saying that. As if hackers needed an excuse to hack a device.As if Sony not making a fuss about it would have stopped them. They just pretended that Sony made them so angry that they hacked it and wanted all the idiots to be on their side to sympathized with them so they wouldn't look like the bad guys. They didn't paint a target on themselves. The target was already there and all they needed was an opportunity to take a shot.Like the idiots who had the keys and said that the Chinese took them from them so they HAVE to post them now. As if anyone believed that lie.

The funniest comments I always here, is.

We only want to get into the system for homebrew, lol.

Homebrew is crap.

Just be fking honest and admit you want to play retail games for it.

hackers have an obsession with all gaming devices. I am not trying to start an argument with you gribble, I tend to agree with you on many things. However I find it funny how we get headlines like "sony ps3 keys leaked, ps3 blown wide open" when sony has far superior security compared to any other competitor. The headline should be "sony is finally hacked"

People will put all their effort into reverse engineering the retail model anyway.
