What's with MAX console and all this jailbreak news?

Wobbuffet3018d ago

I can't blame sony for going after sweden, any excuse to be in a country full of hot blondes.

Dragun6193018d ago

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.

Anon19743018d ago

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.

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.

thorstein3018d ago

Today. These no longer work. And technically it was never "hacked" when you needed SONY tech to get it to work.

UnwanteDreamz3018d ago (Edited 3018d ago )

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.

Persistantthug3018d ago

Sony has specific and special budgets for stuff like this....

Part of Sony's livelihood is tied into its, 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.

Exactly. Stay out of mah country foos!

LtSkittles3018d ago (Edited 3018d ago )

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."

wat6343018d ago (Edited 3018d ago )

Pirate bay. also their legal threat section is quite funny really.

the web sheriff one is my favorite.

CimmerianDrake3018d ago

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.

Eamon3018d ago

lol I bet you're a hypocrite who fileshares music/movies/shows but bashes on the jailbreak.

CimmerianDrake3018d ago

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.

Eamon3018d ago

lol, guilty conscience much?

CimmerianDrake3018d ago

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.

Eamon3017d ago (Edited 3017d ago )

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?

Otheros003018d ago

By stopping them from selling it less people will get to pirate games.

Swishastreets3018d ago

your comment is whats pointless. Even if they stopped the whole world the code is already released and usbkey is legal.

CimmerianDrake3018d ago

Circumvening copy protection for profit is not legal.

The real killer3018d ago

You anwser is real pointless.

rajman3018d ago

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

UnwanteDreamz3018d ago

I do. If this was a real hack I would agree but it isn't.
