"One quick search for iPhone Jailbreak and the 'net seems to be full of mainstream and tech publications announcing every little detail about every little hack for the iPhone"
why does maxconsole keep reporting about the PS3 jailbreak?
because they got nothing else to post about. its a lame site
I wasn't aware we weren't already discussing this for a while...
i think the submitter is worse then maxconsoles when it come to contributing psjailbreak articles.
Because to get a free app on the iphone is relatively easy. Plus Apps only cost .99 to 4.99 in cost to buy where as pirating ps3 games at $60 a game is a bit more extreme
Recently, some ps3 fan made death threats simply because a game was published on a rival console, in Japan. Discussing ps3 jailbreaking is playing with fire. Some people are simply unstable. PS3 jailbreaking seems to be provoking an unstable response in the ps3 community. There's the answer.
What about the guy that killed his parents cause they took away his Xbox. Wonder what happens when I google Xbox related death/murder articles. Wouldn't that prove how unstable you guys are as well?? /s Please, that was a horrible and vague attempt to try and take hits at PS3 gamers. Why would you even bring something like that up? You don't use reason or common sense. This is a PS3 only article. What are you doing here? Oh that's right, trolling.
well i guess cause jailbreaking the iphone is something that SHOULD be done just to put it on par with all similar smartphones. where as jailbreaking ps3 only for piracy. that and theres a bunch of ps3 fanboys that throw a b1tch fit everytime the ps jailbreak is mentioned.
One reason it is okay is the fact that certain aspects of jailbreaking on the Iphone are actually legal if you are only applying software that you actually own. However there is no manner in which you can jailbreak the PS3 that is legal. Video game consoles were not included in the recent exception to the DMCA. Maxconsole is run by a group of 14 year old idiots with a jackass for editor in chief. If they would simply read the law then they would know this. But it is apparent these imbeciles know less than nothing. These uneducated boors would likely burst into flames if they actually attempted to educate themselves.
It's okay because a jailbroken iPhone is not broken mainly for pirate purposes. PS3 is. There. Simple.
Don't know where this guy has been, but N4G has been nothing but PS3 jailbreak this/that since it was first reported..
agreed to the point of extreme boredom Can the criminals who call this news please go and play their sorry tune in another website and allows us to read news about GAMES and not how to be a thief
Agree! Can we please stop approving these articles?
iPhone is available to a few via one company/network, while the PS3 is available to all "who can or cannot afford it:. My 2Cents.....
I think this one is obvious personally - jailbreaking Apple's Draconian iPhone is good for the industry as a whole (bad for Apple) - it allows more open development, improvement of the iPhone's features in ways we've begged Apple for, and more people being able to use the iPhone on different networks. It's led to increase spending in the industry as tons of apps in Cydia get sold daily. Jailbreaking the PS3 is bad for the industry as a whole - the drive is mostly about pirating people's hard work. It leads to illegal actions that hurt game developers. That's my 2Cents......
anser http://www.neowin.net/news/... cause the changes to the dmca do not allow it on consoles, the for fixing security concerns this refers to phd students and reaserchers ie no the lamos who want to get away with ripping of devs
Wow. jerethdagryphon posted the absolute truth and got a disagree for his trouble. What a world. It's not a crime to jailbreak any cell phone, in the US anyway... not sure about everywhere else. I guess it doesn't matter since we all know the US = The World.
How many back up applications are there for the iphone that allow $60 games to be stolen?
you know its funny, I remember when it was common place to see reports of 360 hacks and new games available on torrent sites, I always thought it was a bit innapropriate but 360 folks for the most part just took it all in stride, and typically 360 software sells overall still performed fairly well so whatever. Now with news of ps3 jailbreak hacks, etc its as if these reports are personally insulting their mother, its always been this double standard with the ps3 community.....but once again like I've said all this gen, "karma is a beeatch" & all their negativity towards 360, keeps coming back to bite them in the azz, hopefully when its all said and done ps3 devs continue to see a healthy profit margin over the life of the ps3, but for those who took pleasure in the 360 piracy issues, I cant help but laugh as I watch the defence force activate. JOY
The answer to the question is : It's not illegal to jailbreak an iPhone, and the relevant karma on N4G is payback for all the PS3 bashing that went on here a few years back.
What is this a 7th grade schoolyard fight? "The internets insulted something we like!!!!!" NOTHING is sacred on the internet. People can and will bash anything and everything. People need to grow up and sprout some pubes.
Actually there's always been plenty of bashing going on both ways, nobody's innocent but make no mistake the whole year before the ps3 launched all anyone who didn't worship the ps logo ever heard was how much better the ps3 will do at launch in every piece of 360 news. So when ps3 had a subpar launch once again all sony's arrogance and huge promises fell flat and thats exactly why sony was bashed. I mean seriously Ken really had loyal ps3 fans believing the ps3 would launch with "4D games", lmfao trust me there was no point in arguing with ps3 extremists over the "mythical super computer" that was going to save the world aka the ps3. lol its all history now but I again just stop with the "we were picked on first" attitude as if ps3 folks were ever some dignified gamers who have finally had enough of the world taunting them and suddenly now have decided to fight back....it doesn't suit you and we all know its BS. lol So the real answer to the question is that ps3 faithful have a built in double standard when it comes to the ps3, for years now we've talked about 360, iphone hacks and piracy, I've seen countless ps3 fans promoting it out of jealousy whenever the next big 360 title was about to hit, info for torrent sites put on n4g, links etc, to be fair not all ps3 fans supported piracy but I never heard this level of outcry until now, but its all good once again the ps3 double standard can be seen over and over again in the reactions to negative ps3 news. JOY
/facepalms Now we are discussing whether it was okay to discuss jailbreaking? Come on now...Also a quick search of PS3 Jailbreak actually yields results as well. It's fairly new so WHY would it be blown up like iPhone's jailbreak which has been out for how long now? Common sense would state that a quick search for iPhone jailbreak is bigger for the main reason that it's been around longer. Now why isn't it okay for PS3 jailbreak to be talked about a lot? Frankly because there is almost nothing to talk about. People started to get it going and Sony has been blocking it left and right. What is there to really talk about?
So far none of you have really answered it. You're all just avoiding
and you are just bringing up then defending the Jailbreak in every sony article.
my comment was for ndibu
It's been answered several times. Jailbreaking any cell phone is not illegal. Reading comprehension. Learn it. Know it. Live it.
Well, because *obviously, I would think* jailbreaking on PS3 is more associated with games piracy. Whereas, jail-breaking on the iphone is more about using additional apps on the iphone and experimenting with running aps apple doesn't usually allow. There's no piracy involved in terms of actually ripping people off or stealing something that you haven't paid for.
Damn you beat me to it :/ oh well Also it took a valid argument from the modders to get cracking phones legal, so far no one has a real valid argument why a cracked console would benefit that has no real value outside playing downloaded games
I know iPhone JailBreak is not for a free phone call.
but you can pirate all the apps, and specifically games...but they are (virtually) all terrible and not even worth the time to play, much less pay for
I Jailbreaked mine so i can customize it the way i want i don't even use apps i got filled with Music, Videos and and the only app i have is Messenger. YOU did it to get free apps.
One is legal and one isnt?
Are we sure the PS3 jailbreak is illegal? Who has been arrested for using it?
Can we please get a ban on maxconsole.net as well as the german websites? Thanks, admins.
cuz iphone games suck
Let's see... could it be that one is a legal means of allowing a consumer to use his/her phone with whichever service provider they choose rather than being locked into a single carrier in a monopolistic fashion and the other is illegally obtained tech belonging to a specific company for the sole intent to defraud said company, and others, by obtaining copyright protected materials without paying for them? No, it couldn't be that.
People dont seem to understand ... I unlocked my phone so I could use a different service provider ... i'm still paying for my minutes and texts, and i'm still paying for whatever apps I download. The sole purpose of jailbreaking a ps3 is to steal games.
because one has multi-million dollar production value games and the other has cheap ass games?Also no doubt the Ps3 jailbreak will lead to piracy that will cost the game industry lots of monies while that other...well who the hell cares about the iPhone really.
Someone must have done some jailbreaking on that site. All I get is a database error. If they think it's okay to jailbreak an iPhone or the PS3 then I say it's fine to attack their site and destroy it. It's out there for the taking. Anyone who wants it can take it.
It's simple the law that makes it legal to jailbreak an Iphone does not apply to consoles.
How about we don't discuss any type of hacking at all. Lets talk about the games we love to play instead of posting every story of jail breaking and hacking you people can find. It getting very old and monotonous. Plus no one seems to realize that it's only the lowest grade of game sites constantly talking about it and pointing the way to be able to obtain it. Sites like Gamespot,G4, IGN and Joystiq barely even mention it. It's only the low lifes and trolls who keep approving this kind of junk.
Cause no one gives a hoot about AT&T or what ever. but we do care about our own game developers. (Just a thought)
Because the Iphone is a phone (obviously) and doesn't rely on the sale of it's games to be a success. It relies on a service agreement, which HAS to be paid for. The PS3's services (psn) are offered for free and relies on its game/console sales to stay afloat. And if Jailbreaking/piracy offers those games for free, the fate of the hardware itself is at risk. Not so with jailbreaking an Iphone.
wrote this pile of dung. "do not write piles of dung!!"
Because I cant even get custom text tones on my Iphone 4
ps3 isnt jailbroken. it was stolen tech, thats not jailbreaking, or hacking, or modding. its called THEFT FUCKHEADS
Because the entire purpose of jailbreaking an iPhone isn't (fully) based on the idea of stealing software.
This isn't even news. It's just a comment made by people desperate for hits on their site.
because apple is extremely restrictive on content other than their own(like making custom themes) and jailbreaking creates more genuine freedom while in the PS3's case the only purpose jailbreaking would serve is to pirate games.
Pirate is pirate weither its phone apps ebooks cds movies or anything else of the like but the article does point out the biased fanbases...and its sad really....so either support anti piracey full on or just stop....oh and fyi apple is againsts jailbreaking just like sony...
I don't care, use it or don't; just don't complain about the consequences.
let the video game industry convince them that it is your fault their business model is faulty?
How is faulty? The companies making games and hardware pay hard working employee's to research, develop and manufacture the consoles we use and the games we play...This costs big money...They then put these products on sale to consumers Again how is this faulty?...let me guess because because you think your entitled to free..games...free dlc...very cheap hardware.. Obviously some poor games are overpriced but they tend to hit the bargin bin very quickly after launch...
Jailbreaking both is fine, but using it for piracy, that's your problem, an immoral problem. On the iPhone, if you try to add a source which allows you to pirate apps, it gives you a warning about piracy. If the user proceeds, that's their problem. Same goes with the PS3. Those PSGroove guys released a code specifically made for homebrew and are not willing to condone in piracy by having locked the backup manager and whatnot. People finding the code that has an unlocked backup manager is their problem. But you know, I find this whole "If PS3 gets pirated it's gonna tank in software sales hard :'(" bullshit. Look at the PS1, PS2 and PSP. They have been pirated TO THE FUCKING CORE! And what did we hear yesterday? 2 billion in software sales. Same goes for iPhone. I'm pretty sure a lot of people pirated apps and whatnot. Number of downloads? 6.5 billion. Sure it includes the free apps, but I'm pretty sure paid apps covered a few billions in there.
