"Sony's Lawyers has previously stopped the PSJailbreak from being sold in Australia, Germany and The Netherlands. Now it's Sweden's turn according to IDG Sweden."
just update the firmware and remove debug mode. Stop wasting money like this.
What's with MAX console and all this jailbreak news?
I can't blame sony for going after sweden, any excuse to be in a country full of hot blondes.
I'm pretty sure Maxconsole is the site where most hackers come together to find the latest info on hacks and share the stuff they find. I mean, their PSP forums are riddle on how to hack the PSP along with other threads for Wii & Xbox360.
I'd like to kick the author in the nuts.
Is this what constitutes "news" now? The article has a tiny blurb and then admits it's "Taken from some blog - This article was originally published in forum thread" Are you kidding me? And keep your half baked opinions out of news headlines. That's for opinion pieces, not news. Legitimate news articles get failed and flagged by mods so the "quality" filter weeds them out, yet apparently anything yanked out of the ass end of some forum with some anti-Sony headline is fair game. Unbelievable. Report this garbage.
"Max is biggest xbox fanboy site" What have you been smokin today, son
Sony wins = Sony gets money from them.
Scare tactics I assume. By making an example out of the hackers they may hope to scare off future hopefuls. They'll no doubt also address the problem through firmware updates at the same time. They might just not want to be seen taking no action.
Today. These no longer work. And technically it was never "hacked" when you needed SONY tech to get it to work.
Once again we have people who play video games second guessing a multibillion dollar company and thier high priced lawyers. Do you people ever get tiired of looking ignorant? First you attack the distributors in court so the device is deemed illegal and the money stops. Then you make the illegal device useless. Last but not least you punish the users (if you can). Some of you need to hit the books instead of this website. Oh and maxconsole is run by ignorant dropouts if they think this is pointless. Sony is doing what any other megacorp would do in this position. Remember this isn't the same as jailbreaking an iphone.
Sony has specific and special budgets for stuff like this.... Part of Sony's livelihood is tied into its media...music, movies, games, etc. It's part of Sony's responsibility to itself to try and keep future potential hackers and pirateers from stealing from them.... It's any companies responsibility actually.
They have yesterday.
Exactly. Stay out of mah country foos!
And MaxConsole continues its pointless Sony bashing, because Sony are teh devil in the eyes of MaxConsole. Also MaxConsole is funny, because they don't credit their source, "Taken from some blog."
Pirate bay. also their legal threat section is quite funny really. http://thepiratebay.org/leg... the web sheriff one is my favorite.
Sorry for the All Caps heading, but it's very true. Piratebay is a tracking site that doesn't host the copyrighted material, just basically links to it. That's why they always get away with it thanks to Sweden's very lax copyright laws in that regard. This is a blatant infringement in which the guilty parties are knowingly making a profit (something piratebay doesn't do with it's main service which is why there are ads on the site) using stolen tech specifically designed to circumvent copyright protection. It's pretty much illegal everywhere.
lol I bet you're a hypocrite who fileshares music/movies/shows but bashes on the jailbreak.
You make an ass out of u and me. Learn to keep quiet about things you don't know. Unless you like looking like a fool, in which case all the power to you.
lol, guilty conscience much?
Not at all. Unlike you, I don't base my life on the PS3 getting hacked, which hasn't happened technically. And I don't get wet for the chance to play games I haven't bought like you do. See, two people can play your game.
You say that and you don't even know me. lol, you're pretty insecure. And what's ironic is that you still haven't denied that you fileshare.
lol the disclaimer is very funny but this i think its diferent?
By stopping them from selling it less people will get to pirate games.
your comment is whats pointless. Even if they stopped the whole world the code is already released and usbkey is legal.
Circumvening copy protection for profit is not legal.
You anwser is real pointless.
True...but the actual source code for JailBreak is FREE all over the internet, you can put this into a damn calculator and JailBreak your PS3 lol more and more devices are becoming compatible for JailBreak....I cant see this slowing down now
I do. If this was a real hack I would agree but it isn't.
Love Sweden. Best girls in the world!
I'm more of an Ireland Guy Myself (Redheads FTW)
just report the news stop editorializing.
...Why would protecting a product be pointless...? That title sounds like flamebait.
It's like saying "What's the point of installing alarm in your new car?"
Yeah, doing everything in your power to protect your investment, as well as the price of games, the livelihoods of the developers, and the interest of shareholders that keep your company afloat is very pointless. Yep. Teach us how to properly run a multi-billion dollar, international business oh wise MaxConsole "journalists". /s
even if its pointless legally, sony have to do this otherwise there is no fear the hackers can do whatever they want with no worries
security has already been changed on the PS3, unless you don't update etc. Who cares, i don't think this will be a big time thing anyway.
Obviously they're making point. You hack my shit- I come for you.
This may not be a revelation to most people with half a brain here...but people have full time jobs at corporations like these on the technical & legal side dealing with piracy. So why is it pointless for them to do what they are payed to do?
Yeah, its all fun and games until you get sued. Its not pointless, a waste of money? lol Sony is one of the biggest company's out their and money isn't really a problem for them.
Is that I keep hearing people complaining that Sony took the other OS option from the console, and using that argument to support the hacking, when it was BECAUSE OF A CERTAIN HACKER that the feature was removed. Seriously, if there wasn't so many people doing illegal stuff and messing with the consoles then things would be a lot simpler and easier.
People don't want to support people and pay, it's sad how messed up piracy is, but if man make it, man can break it so.....
What ever Sony do, unless they do a full rewrite of their OS they're stuffed considering there's free code out there for anyone with half a brain cell to download and use, or you could most likely buy it done for you on eBay..... I fee so sorry for Sony, but lets see just how long the next consoles, even the 3DS will be unhacked for.
Like I said before, why is it everyone thinks Sony doesn't know what they are doing? They are a giant tech company that has been around for decades with years of experience and have billions in resources. I don't think they need the advice from gaming media, haters, competitors and game site posts to tell them who or what to go after first and last, when and how to do it or if to give up and allow the hackers to freely dip into their pockets. If Sony listened to idiots like these they would have scrapped the PS3, given up and made software for Nintendo and Mircosoft instead of having the now profitable streamlined, best first party titles PS3 we have now.
i want to stability jailbreak, go piracy go "free games no pays"
