The last contender remaining now is the ps3, how long will it take before it will be hacked also ?

ITR4243d ago

If you can run Linux on it, it won't take long.

I give it 6-8 months.

They already cracked the HD-DVD and Blu-Ray it's just a matter of time.

pshizle4243d ago

ps3 was hacked before it was even released!!!

NikV34243d ago

ps3 hasnt been hacked yet, you retard, witch is surprisibng considering it runs linux, but i guess they just thought things thru better than ms did, but then again, who doesent

Merovee4242d ago

PS3 is proving quite the tough cookie to crack as even while running Linux. The main aspects of it are protected since everything run is runing through the hypervisor, acting as another layer between the components and any installed OS. That means a whole other layer of problems and safety for the system that must be solved before it can be compromised.

turd burglers who pirate games are cheap wankers I dont think they would be able to afford a PS3. I used to burn games for xbox but I changed my attitude towards pirated software. For one thing I never finished games that i burnt I would just play for a few minutes then go download another one. Stupid.

I did mod my Xbox 1 (AFTER CLOSING MY LIVE ACCOUNT) and installed the Xbox Media Center to play stuff from my anime collection, and to run emulators for older systems.

However, "hacks" and other things being brought online is totally wrong, and I hope this does not happen on the 360 or PS3.

The worse thing about being M$ is that everyone in the world hates you and they will hack you on a constant basis...

Vfor54243d ago

The worst thing about being you, Concole crusader, is that you have no respect for what Bill Gates does with his money. and the fact that your a douche bag.

TriggerHappy4243d ago

If they would be more fair to customers and wont force them to adopt to new products they bring out and continue support of older products for a while, then everyone would not try to hack or get back at them.

gta_cb4243d ago

"and wont force them to adopt to new products" sounds like Sony with BluRay

(im not saying Sony was wroung, just think before you comment)

TriggerHappy4243d ago
