Open Pstore Project Announced for PS3

"A team over at has announced they will be working on a project called Open PStore. Apparently this will be similar to a Wii app known as the Homebrew Browser. Users will be able to download and install (legal) homebrew applications directly into their PS3. Basically it is a homebrew PSN Store. The team also states if your PS3 is incapable of going online, they will have a version for you to access on your PC. With this option you would need to download the homebrew apps manually and install them via usb stick. They currently have a rough PC version located at The members working on the project are The_Marioga, AdriHades, DanteHades and PSmaniaco."

This is what I want to hear. Not jailbreak.

Wait, this thing is legal, isn't it?

Le-gal? What's that?


Just like you can't legally run unsigned code on PS3, I'm pretty sure selling or distributing it is just as illegal considering the PSN EULA (if you buy a PS3 today with older FW, don't sign the EULA - don't open a PSN account - I think it's technically legal as you never agreed to that).

You know what is funny? They could have done that for PS3 Linux if they wanted to, but before Jailbreak no one was giving PS3 homebrew any attention. I simply don't get what this guys want... They ruin it for everyone (OtherOS removal), them they ruin (or attempt to ruin) it for developers (Jailbreak - it was efficiently blocked) now they want to show people how good they are delivering their shit? WTF

Those guys could of had gone online just normally and still use this without having piracy related stuff in anyway if this was done for YellowDogLinux or any other PPC OS (even a homebrew made one would work) and GeoHot wasn't supported or incited by HB scene.
