A couple of days ago, Spiker debuted his hack on Sony's PS3 system files, which he accessed under firmware 2.17. While a lot were impressed, there were also a good number of doubting Thomases that milled about the news.
have to say this made my day, all fairness, this is pointless
My ps3 ejects discs when i press it, but it doesn't when i RUB it. Watch the video again, first time round he was pressing the eject button and second time round he rubbed it. Nothing to do with a exploit.
Yeah man, I tried rubbing mine that fast too and it didn't work either. Shenanigans still called!!
It's complete BS. This guy thinks people are fools and they wont check it out for themselves. lol If you have a PS3 go ahead and try what he just did. Slide your finger back and forth across the eject button and see if it ejects. It wont. Now place your finger on the eject button. It works!
Not to be an ass...but why do all the guys with exploits and hacks for the ps3 have the cheapest gaming setups of all-time? Those in-game xmb pics with a blurry camera and an sdtv...this guy's setup...oh well, at least this is a video for once
I agree, just enjoy the system as is, if you wanna mess around with stuff use a PC or something lol, i never want to mess with a 600 dollar system.
That is a funny observation right there. This guy is hacking his brains out in his trailer. Working on an old 17 inch tv. haha Naturally he doesn't work....namely because he stays at home figuring out how to get the PS3 to malfunction and prevent the discs to eject. Again, awesome hack. Barf
lol yeah, i have to admit i was on the same boat too...one day i'm just expecting some hacker jerk in a mansion who owns a yellow Hummer will hack a PS3 with his hi-def 1080p camera on a 70" Bravia screen with surround sound edit: LMAO @ trailer
Because that's all they do, they don't make any money...
IS that guy talking about. So this hack makes it impossible to eject a disk by hand on the system? Sweet. I will do the same to my system. Barf!
I agree with happywozere. He's pressing it the first time and the disc is ejected. He then tries to rub the eject button without adding any force. We're not stupid and this is indeed pointless.
First this guy really needs to upgrade his tv.. How the hell do you play anything on that small a$$ tv? At first i though it was a computer monitor.. lol.. Second.. This guy is full or crap.. like happywozere said above you can rub the eject button all you want and nothing will happen.. I just tried on my ps3 and nothing happens.. And if you look closely at the video. You can cleary see he presses down with his finger to make it work the 1st time, than he gently rubs the eject button the 2nd time when it doesnt work.. Why would he go from pressing to rubbing?? lol.. i eject the disc from my ps3 the same way everytime.. I dont switch it up.. Press, rub, press, fist, rub, gentle rub, hard rub.. lol.. If you own a ps3 try it really quick and you know this guy is full of it.. Bottom line.. this guy is a douche bag...
holly crap the whole time i thought it was a pc monitor!
@ gw4k This guy is hacking his brains out in his trailer. Working on an old 17 inch tv. haha HAHA!! I haven't seen carpet like that in DECADES!! Is that a drop ceiling and flourescent lighting as well!? Sheesh... Man this place is primed for partying, playing, and poverty PS3 hacks. Dude get a job...seriously!
Hey man don't make fun. I play on a 15" JVC television. Some people just can't afford the new HDTVs. Although I will say this "exploit" seems rather pointless. Unless this can help with something else I don't see the big deal here.
How is disabling the ability to eject disks (or faking it) an exploit at all? This isn't a hack, this is just pointless...
it's not pointless. you see when you have the ability to disable the eject button then you.....ahhhh......you......ca n eject your games from the xmb menu. isn't that cool.
This is completly pointless. He slides his finger like flash, how did he expect that works!? In the first time he slided, he made it more slowly.
Is all the meth he is cooking in the room behind him. Note to self: Meth makes you do stupid things with your playstation. haha
...be it an exploit or a gimmick or a trick.... what is the point exactly? Anyone?
Even if this is real (I've tried rubbing my eject button on my ps3)its completely useless.
wth... yeah right!!rub it to eject the CD's out. foo... lol
well my button works fine when i rub it...no pun intended..lol maybe some are more sensative than others? just like my ps2 the first one i had the power button worked fine(press to reset and hold to turn off). but my second on would hardly reset because when you touched it it would cut off...
no its not cool because you still gotta get your ass up and change the disc...lol
If I flush the toilet slowly all the water disappears, BUT when I flush it fast the water stays! Stay tuned for the video.
I'm gonna upload a video where I unplug my system and it doesn't work until I replug it it.....It's a pretty sweet video.
