Well, the codes out there already so it's not good.

I tried to post this earlier but submit wouldn't work :(.

The pirates can now hack the PS3 by using Nokia N900 and soon the hack will be ported to Android, Iphone and PSP.

comp_ali2152d ago

this is australia, you know. they don't even have mature rating for games.

jay22152d ago

If you look at the list of retailers they were going to ship it to, you'll see it's affected a lot more countries.

already too late for sony,the coders have this and their working on something in clones of Jailbreak.

sikbeta2152d ago

Ah... dude the jailbreak is a backup manager, it reached its limit already, sacrifice PSN and upcoming games for a hack that needs the Original copy of the games in order to work... well, that will not be as huge you are wishing....

Baka-akaB2152d ago

just fyi there are methods to launch isos . it wa obvious it would come , as the psjaibreak would only benefits people with access to game rentals

This is just leading up to Sony doing the newest thing suing gamers for playing pirate games. You know its coming.. I mean you hear of people getting jailed for illegal copies of PC games but on consoles you get a ban or something I think Sony are leading upto something big. Why make money like MS by ripping off customers when you can sue the ass off pirates?? These court cases are just a stepping block for the real goal. You think Sony don't know how far this has gotten you really think they are that ignorant?

Lulz they only got PSJailbreak banned now, but the clones aren't forbidden yet.

Furthermore the code is out and N900 phone version already leaked, you can make a stick yourself with Tweensy++ boards and Android and iPHone versions are upon us in the next few weeks.

So Sony, go sue some more while the community uses low cost sticks or even free solutions using their phones...

EDIT

@ Raztad below

Uh no, the hack isn't made illegal with this court case, the product called PSJailbreak is. The other clones could still be sold.

@ Baka

Yes, free solutions are better, like this one for the N900

http://talk.maemo.org/showt...

furthermore, remember that the hack enables all unsigned code to run, thus homebrew. Which is much more interesting than illegal games IMO.

raztad2152d ago (Edited 2152d ago )

You are trying to overlook Sonys success in preventing the hack to be a viable commercial product. It is now (at least in Australia) an ilegal, underground hack.

Sony technical response to this is another matter and I presume it will be here before GT5.

Baka-akaB2152d ago (Edited 2152d ago )

i dont see a reason for gloating . At least it means that scums who wanted to get money from the process wont .

Piracy aint ok , but at the very least it should be something done freely among amateurs , not a commercial process and business like it is far too often

Hell i believe that's exactly why the likes of matthieuL came in ... they certainly werent happy about some bozos getting a business and monopoly out of jailbreaks

divideby02152d ago

Sony first went after the easy part and stopped a lot of gamers from using this.
Now they will work with the firmware updates to take care of the rest

SasanovaS19872152d ago

sony has different people for different things...are you an idiot? the second jailbreak came out, they had a section of their best lawyers writing lawsuits, and their best coders immediately working on firmware and updates to stop it... its not like they tackle each problem 1 by 1. thats not the way multibillion dollar companies work

MysticStrummer2152d ago

I seriously doubt there will be any homebrew from this, because I think Sony can block this fairly easily, but even if there is how good do you think it can possibly be? Full time professional developers have had trouble with the Cell. It doesn't matter anyway. We all know the purpose of this is pirated games, and we all know you're only happy about it because a hacked PS3 would bring it down closer to the level of a hacked 360.

Baka-akaB2152d ago

i doubt it too . Either the only homebrew i'm interested into would be playing my ps2 games , and i'm not confident it will happen , at least not soon .

UnwanteDreamz2152d ago (Edited 2152d ago )

All of that for this list of games http://www.ps3news.com/subd... with no guarantee that I will be able to back up new games? No guarantee I will be able to use homebrew beyond 3.41? No more updates to games or the PSN? No PSN?

Sounds like a joke even if it is free.

vhero2152d ago

wont be a legal iphone version as it will never get onto the store but as for android well you don't even need a jailbroken device to use it. Hwoever I can see a LOT of bricked phones with people trying this.

Go Sony!! :D

... The sooner this piece of shit is banished from this Earth, the better.

I don't want Sony & PS3 to die.. Because of piracy :(

KratosGirI2152d ago

Hell, look at the Wii, 360 and PS2. They were pirated to bits, but they're still doing good!

PopEmUp2152d ago

know the Ps2 did even better when they were piracy

HydraxFFx2152d ago

The same thing with the PSP, many only bought it because it could be hacked easily.

LightofDarkness2152d ago (Edited 2152d ago )

Yeah, because MS and Nintendo are so in danger of going under at any moment because of piracy.

/s

radphil2152d ago

Still isn't an excuse to steal. :p

vhero2152d ago

DS is the biggest of them all everybody who owns a DS nearly owns a backup cart of some kind. How you think Ninty sold so many of those things?? Mario? Hahahaha. Those backup carts sold the DS as until they came out it was struggling for sales.

PimpHandHappy2152d ago

the guys that wanted to sell this didnt because they knew it was illegal and the way they made it would have meant jail time for theft

like i said

it will never see the light of day and anyone that uses the free version will get the ban hammer

Sarick2152d ago (Edited 2152d ago )

When Sony bans consoles they do it by using the systems internal ID. What if the firmware or software was tricked into thinking it's another console.

Just think about it like this. You're an honest PS3 user playing online and one of these jailbreak users has their console ban. When the guy who gets ban uses this possible feature it changes his/her system to connect to PSN as another console.

What would happen if those random ID's turned out to be mask as ligament PS3s? One such as yours and your PS3 suddenly is BAN. I'm not saying it's totally possible but if you've seen Geos underground videos where he's altered the firmware so it allowed him to change the MAC address of the internal lan as well as other system defining firmware and features. I'm thinking it might be entirely possible to spoof the console identification at some point.

If they create a homebrew that modifies the way the consoles connect to PSN so it falsifys the console identification honest owners could be ban to. There are almost 40 million PS3's out there with billions of possible system identification IDs.
