What a Hacked PS3 Should Do

Now that the PS3 is hacked and wide open for homebrew I started to think about what will happen. The fact of the matter is that now that the system is open much good and much evil will undoubtedly spring forth.

With all this in mind I started to think about what exactly I would want a hacked PS3 to do that it can not do now or does not do well in unhacked form. (PS3)

Cross game chat.

Why am i not surprised if you want that just buy a damn xbox.I'm really getting tired of people b****ing about no cross game chat.
Scatigno  +   1604d ago
How would buying an Xbox make up for it? you would still be without cross game chat on the damn PS3, and if thats the system people are playing then they shouldn't feel bad about wanting to see the feature being implemented.

All I ask for is... Custom Dynamic Themes. :D

Also custom Avatars... if possible. XD
SMOK3xFFx  +   1604d ago

Yeah your right, buying an Xbox doesn't let people talk to their friends while they play Uncharted/Killzone/LBP and they play something else.


That would be hilarious, 1/3 custom themes now are 18+ imagine how many would be 18+ if custom dynamic themes were allowed.
Blaze929  +   1604d ago
hell yeah. Add MKV support, a better web browser - maybe a community custom firefox, custom soundtracks across all games, man - the possibilities are now endless.

HEY! THAT WAS PRETTY SARCAS-...Oh, I see what you did there.
nycredude  +   1603d ago
You know what will eventually happen? You will have spyware and adware and the hackers that are malicious will have gained access to your information. You can't have good without the bad. For this reason alone it's dumb to hack your Console. I mean just on Android and the market on cell phone almost every app requires full access to somethings who know how many of they steal your info.

However I do agree with Sarcasm, short of curing aids, the a hacked PS3 will be a failure in the eyes of the media.

Cross game chat, web browser, mkv support.

Keep dreaming about those features. As of now, all you get is "Hello, world" on your TV.

in all honesty.. and i'm asking my TRUE fellow ps3 gamers..

how often are you expecting to use this Cross Game Chat.. i mean, here's how i play..

I finish a game, and i send an invite, if someone wants to join my party join it.

If i have any invites i try to join.

If i'm playing don't freaking bother me cause i don't want to be bothered while i killing noobs.

as a matter of fact i would rather NOT be xgame chat so people don't bother me as much.

I don't understand this obsession, is just to shut other fanboys up?

now MKV? that would be a hell of an add-on
Yi-Long  +   1603d ago
Oh, so many things...
- Region-free BR playback!
- Emulator heaven!
- The PS3 being able to recognize USB-sticks/HDD's that are are NOT FAT32.

etc etc.

As far as I'm concerned, the sooner all the enhancements come out, the better.

Also, as an added bonus, we as european gamers will no longer be completely reliant on the shitty crap SCEE serves us up! No proper LBP2 CE!? What. The. Fuck.!?

MisterAV  +   1603d ago
YOU are ignorant
MKV is a container like MP4. And often MKV has the same video codec (h264) as MP4. So same quality but it has a better support for multiple audio and subs.
So we don't just need MKV but also for SSA subs.
RedDevils  +   1603d ago
you know why people prefer mkv over Mp4 not because of quality, but no one have the fucking time to convert all those anime or those HD movies to Mp4, unless you have no live just hanging around with your computer all day long

Download MKV 2 VOB...

It is not really a converter it doesn't work like all the other PS3 converters...

It can convert a 720p MKV movie to VOB in about 5 minutes on my crap PC... the same thing done with a regular converter would take me more than 2 hours (and I am being very generous)

You can than play your MKV files on PS3 is really really quick trust me...

Or if you have a wireless router you can just stream everything from your laptop that is what I started doing and you can stream any type of video file.
There is no point of copying to the PS3 unless you will watch the movies again and again.

For subs use AVI AddXSubs.

Hope this helps some of you.

People wouldn't be bitching about no cross game chat and wouldn't know the joy of it if Xbox didn't have it.. It's obviously Microsoft's thing so if you want it that bad buy an Xbox. Pleading Sony to copy won't help much.

I use party chat everytime I turn on my XBOX as I have a lot of friends and family on there. I play games with my friends, not by myself usually. I like playing against other people.

I occasionally indulge in games like Uncharted that are meant to be single player games, but that is not too often.

Party chat that lets me do cross-game invites on the fly is a GOOD FEATURE. Why does everyone downplay it so much?

I can understand if you are a hobbit-like gamer that doesn't like to be bothered while you are playing your single player games. But for mostly multiplayer gamers, party chat is a really good feature.
JayD-1K  +   1603d ago
@ Frag,
I under stand how that is a nice feature but, i hate it when you're in a MP match and half your team mates are in some kind of party chat. you can't talk to them or just say watch out and vice versa!

to me, that's when this feature is a waste of time!

On another note
Does downloading a tv show/series thats no longer available on terrestrial tv now count as piracy :/?
HappyGaming  +   1603d ago
Sometimes because you are suppose to buy DVD series like Heroes and 24...

However I just download them because that way I get to watch them a day after they release in US.

The UK usually takes 6 months to release TV shows.
For example No Ordinary Family hasn't even started in the UK but I have watched the first 10 episodes already.

Not that any of you care but me and my buddies have been using Skype for cross game chat when we feel the need. Seriously though it we only feel the need like once a month. Most MP games come with chat functions.

ReBurn  +   1603d ago
Not nitpicking, but is the operating system free? Or are we going to play all of these games on Linux?

$140 for Windows 7 Professional

And double that RAM for another $27, because 2GB just isn't going to cut it.

That brings the total to $455. Which is still reasonable for a basic gaming PC. But more realistic, as long as you have a decent monitor already.
Theonetheonly  +   1602d ago
left out OS due to the amount of money you'll save on games. games on average are 50% less than on console. within about ten games you can buy windows or whatever else you need.

I think i just remembered why i switched from consoles when i was like 12 I was always in the store wondering why pc games were sooooo much cheaper for the same game.

trust me pc gamings not for everybody, but for those who can take it or want it the reward is like making something with your own hands that you have 100% control over.

all i hear about these days is how a console should let you control more. but most people fail to realize console gaming is an industry that runs on controlling the space the end consumer has to wiggle in and then slowly offering more and more wriggle room..... but at a cost.

i see it as a money extraction device more than a respectable entity these days.

what backs up my theory is the faith that i have lost within my community ie companies that specialize in pc development jumping the bandwagon for nothing more than a market. Im starting to feel that there is no more love in gaming left for me outside of indie devs.

i dont know if anyone can relate.

"What a Hacked PS3 Should Do"
it should display a huge exploding middle finger when you turn on the console and explode in your face just for hacking.

lets face it, people will do this for piracy/Cheating purposes.
Nitrowolf2  +   1604d ago
yeah, and really no matter what people say "You can do far more then pirate games", it won't matter because one of the major reason to do it would be free games. These other things are reasons also, but the majority of people are looking for ways to play pirated games and at the same time waiting for these things.
Pixel_Enemy  +   1604d ago
It's true. I won't hack mine because I don't want to pirate games. Although it does piss me off that the hacking community gets features, apps and homebrew capabilities that legit users don't get. Especially if it is stuff that the community has been begging sony for and hackers deliver it before sony does.
nycredude  +   1603d ago
It's retarded really cause the majority of the games on all platforms are much cheaper now anyway. SO the risk of hacking your console, plus downloading large files, Unzipping, running and all the other crap will not even be worth it. I mean seriously weren't everyone and their grandma complaining about mandatory installation taking up precious space and taking too much time? How much time will it take to find and download 15 gigs, and when was the last time a mandatory installation that large?
Kurt Russell  +   1603d ago
So many people here worrying about piracy... What a waste of time. The PS3 being hacked won't mean everybody and their mums does it and they never sell a game again. Instead the smallest minority of tech savvy people might give it a go. The DS is the number 1 selling handheld, and that had an R4. The PSP Go didn't... and was a huge flop.

Anyway, being free to mod something you have purchased is fine... Can you imagine if everything just looked and worked at its factory default, we would end up with a society run by greedy whore corporations.... Oh wait :/
JayD-1K  +   1603d ago
@ KR
being able to mod the HARDWARE is fine..however you don't own the OS! That's why (if you read the start up agreement)Sony reserves the right to add or take away features as they see fit!

it sucks but....that's the way it is! because i can bet you this, when any kind of publisher comes to sue about copy right infringements..i can sure as hell bet you they won't be knocking on your door for payment!

Right, and those things are wrong, so cheaters should be banned and pirates should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

I think the no disk after install would be nice. I think it should be an option without the hack taking place, to be honest. If we bought the game we should have the right to play it from the drive. I don't condone stealing games we've rented or downloading games we haven't bought for the feature, though. But I say, if we bought the game, give us a choice in booting from disc or drive. It's our space we're wasting or having sit empty.

I'd love to see some Nes/Gen/Snes emulators on there aswell -- More so Mame. The problem here is many people don't own Arcade Coin-op's and that would, again, be stealing. I own a "Double Dragon Coin-op" and a "Galaga" machine -- I'm looking out for a Pacman, Donkey Kong and Donkey Kong Jr to complete my collection of must. I feel Mame is a good vehicle for PS3, though. I'd love to see someone do it for the hell of it.

You have a laptop or pc? Then download Vuze ( http://www.vuze.com/ ), it broadcasts whatever movies or music files you got in the library, to your PS3 through the router, and you can watch it on your TV from the PS3. It also works on Xbox 360. it's not a hack, it's not against any PS rules, and you don't lose the ability to keep playing online with your friends. Win Win situation.
UltimateIdiot911  +   1604d ago
Nah, I know about that along with other programs. When I'm in my dorms, I don't want to buy a router or use those programs. I've tried some, they didn't turn out as good as I hope.

for everyone that still does not get it
the people playing we cracked the PS3's security has still failed to break the PS3's secure processing vult!

the Hacker's

but ..but we have the private Key's!

well read this:

The Secure Processing Vault

Goal: isolation of an application


where ol where have i read that before..oh that's right FailOverFlow..claim to fame hack!

but here is the thing...this is talking about the SPE security processing vult..which if you notice they already knew about this type of hack. so..what's the response:

"The fundamental problem with existing approaches is that they rely on software to provide the isolation, but at the same time software can be manipulated by an adversary. A better approach is for the hardware design to isolate the process in such a way that the software cannot override the isolation, and this is precisely what the Cell BE processor's Vault provides."

"The application running on the isolated SPE is responsible for ensuring that the data coming through the open communication area of its LS is safe. Also, consistent with the idea that the cores execute independently, any number of SPEs can be in isolation mode at any given time."

or what i like to call:

turning all your SPE's into security Vult's!

how many SPE's does that program need to run?

sorry all the SPE's are in security mode thanks to

The hardware random number generator protects against replay attacks (see Resources) by marking the current communication with a time stamp. A replay attack is where an adversary takes an old communication message and sends it again through the unsecured communication channel. Because the authentication protocol will verify that the message is authentic, a robust time stamping feature is the only way for the communication partners to realize that there is a man-in-the-middle attack happening.

so the FailOverFlow says the PS3 had no random generator in its security but in the secure processing vult there it is..which since they have yet to break that vult..How do they know for sure what Security that vult contains , or more effectivly what it can do?.

.but..but we can sign self's..

yea yes you can..lol

I see i already have a disagree's yet the FailOverFlow team an Geohotz claim they have full access to the PS3 but yet they did not break that Secure SPE vult.

so no they do not have unrestricted access !

So what's in the Vult? but..but they do not need the Vult..but that's like saying..were in the lobby but do not know what's in that locked room..lets just ignore that locked room.

why was it so easy to break in the rest of it but that locked room?

TheRealist2102  +   1604d ago
As much as I like Sony and Microsoft (in some cases) it seems like the corporate norm is to leave features out of a product just so they can add them in later models or make you pay for it. I really enjoy how the hacking community can in most cases implement features that really make the hardware shine. It's so sad to see that hackers have more vision than corporate companies. I'm really excited to see what kind of apps and tweaks the hacking community provides.

Hacks been around to do that since august/sept 2010. This hack is so you can create your own programs/app. Put it into a ps3 update file and trick the ps3 into thinking its a sony approved program......and to run pirated games on the ps3 unfortunately
Arup02  +   1603d ago
joeorc  +   1603d ago
that's the point.
they are trying to trick the system but the Spe secure processing vult cannot be tricked because they have no idea what's in it.. this Quote: is a perfect example-

this is from one of the main FailOverFlow hacker's himself:


"The PS3 signature fail is neither an exploit nor a bug (in the PS3 firmware). The XKCD "return 4" function that we showed is (essentially) part of the code that Sony HQ runs to sign games, it's not in the PS3 FW. No one can create a new metldr (for an existing console). Not even Sony (unless they have that console's key stashed somewhere)."


notice this:

No one can create a new metldr (for an existing console). Not even Sony (unless they have that console's key stashed somewhere)."

if they have unrestricted access to the PS3 why not the SPE vult?

could a new Metldr be inside that vult...?


ask yourself..can Sony change the Metldr on the fly?

it would take that systems console Key..the point is that Key could be in that Vult..which would not suprise me you cannot access that key with software means outside the vult. but the Vult can do things to the software outside of the vult. but how would it know if the hackers can sign their own Self's.

that's the problem can Sony access that Vult?

we do not know they can but since they made it they may infact be able to do it. an if so no hacks would be safe if your Metldr can be changed on the fly!

Correct me if I'm wrong (and let's face it, I probably am) but I thought FailOverflow stated that they couldn't sign games and wouldn't be pursuing that route. Therefore, no piracy.

joeorc  +   1603d ago
they themselves don't have to be pursuing it themselves, because they are releasing the Tool's to enable people to do it to the world wide web. for anyone to get their hands on it. what does it matter if they say their not doing it themselves at all they are releasing and giving everybody lockpicks that want them.

do you think the Pirates want those free lockpicks?

the point is their enabling the piracy no matter what, if they were to go to Sony an say we would like an official Home brew channel and all the Home brew has to go through a process of agreement from Sony just like every Developer that would be one thing..but that's not what their doing is it?

I mean what about the Wii channel these Hacker's are so proud of..why not a PS3 channel..or is it just not right for Sony to get one...?

Hypocrisy it seem's is they want open source but do not want to talk to Sony about it..if you have not guessed yet Sony is one of the best companies that do infact support Open source:


if these guy's are so worried about open source an keeping Linux on the PS3 why not go to Sony..

OH that's right that would be too easy!

that Trite we did it for the Consumer's BS is very Transparent

Hey folding at home is open to all ps3's no gaming App. an yet these guy's think Sony would not be willing to work with esp for Indie developer's ...just like Sony went at Indiecade 2010 this year and is very willing to work with indie developer's.

Who are they trying to fool!

Sorry, should of made it clearer in my original post but I recall them saying it wasn't possible to get the code to sign Blu-Rays.

Again, correct me if I'm wrong but I'm going through memory, albeit limited. :p

piracy wont work PS3 games are way to big for them to be pirated and stores realistically, even if you had 1 TB how many ps3 games would you honestly be able to keep? not 100.
the_best_player  +   1603d ago
plus 4 1TB external hard drives in usb ports :)
Laeto256  +   1603d ago
and the ps3 (slim) only has 2 ports ruh roh.
PS3n360  +   1603d ago
Rent or borrow from a friend and burn or buy from a pirate for $10 will be the way piracy occurs. Downloading is not realistic that is true.

you don't need to sign key's you can make Java app's run off the Blu-Ray drive right now without a signed Key! as a matter of fact..Blu-Ray support JavaME.

that's right without even needing linux installed on the PS3 you could do this directly from the XMB!

My point is not only was it open to JavaME but was also Open to Linux it seems that was not enough for some People..

they had javaME based home brew running on the PS3 before Linux was even an issue about so called "we did this for the consumer" who are people trying to fool.

if they did it for the Consumer they could have gone to Sony an worked out something, I think people may try to Say Sony would not have worked with them..yea like Sony has not supported Home development of playstation's since the PS1?

now you have people dumping UMD's and people Hacking the PS3 for piracy.

remember the PS1's

Net Yaroze

i mean:

the Playstation 3

allowed versions of Linux to be installed and some within Linux programming was possible, similar to the PS2. However, access to the RSX graphics chip was prohibited, so games created had to have been done in software only using the CPU.

but that's just like the previous playstation systems there was a part of the playstation you were not allowed to use for good reason developer's have to pay for such privilages. but i guess software security does not apply to these guy's right?

even though they know the software does not belong to them..hey lets make all software completely transferable that include's your copyright if you buy it the auther looses his right's to it. see how many would still write software.

you would see many just say the hell with it.

or keep what they make just for themselves..you loose more tallent, unless the person does it for the "just want to share with everyone" whle that's fine an dandy the software industry supports family's and people with real lives an job's breaking the security of a system you own may be ok with you but it will hurt other's esp if you just send out the entry key's for everyone to spite some company you dislike.

these Hacker's did this out of spite not because they wanted to do something good , no they did it for selfish reason's.

this all started because some Hacker did not play by the rules. and everyone get to suffer..because all this does is make sure we as consumer's get less an less feature's for free in the future and pay for everything under the sun.

I see a lot of people saying they don't want Cross-game chat, since when is adding features a bad idea. I like to talk to my friends when playing on my PS3, at the moment we have to use the incredibly slow and laggy text chat. It would be a lot easier just to have voice chat so we wouldn't need to pause our game every time we want to say something.

They are only saying it since its an xbox feature and they dont want to admit the xbox has things on it that are positive.

cross game chat is ok, Iv only used it a few times BUT
Party chat is where its at. that way you and your friends can go in to a group private chat, weather in the same game or different games. I like it so me and my friends can communicate in games while not having to hear or talk to the rest of the people.

I hope that Sony finds a way to Brick every freaking console that uses this junk. This is so typical of this generation. Keep your little jailbreak junk, keep your cross game chat. I like my PS3 just the way it is and if Sony continues to improve on this dynamo, I will be ready and waiting, but to tamper with the device in an effort to pirate crap is weak.
Come on Sony Brick them all, every single one of the consoles that use this piece of crap.

Laeto256  +   1603d ago
they got rid of the ps2 chip in the slim which is why it cant play PS2 games, basically someone would have to program the entire ps3 to be able to emulate ps2...who the hell wants to do that?
