Two new job listings posted on SCEA's website reveal the company is getting serious about PlayStation 3 software piracy.
Sony, Hire George Hotz! (George Hotz)
Then stick him in a cubicle in a sub-basement room. brick it up after you shove him in. Sorry, but considering the "man's" attitude, there's a good chance he'd only leak secrets to the hacker community.
Geohotz didn't even successfully hack the PS3. It was FailOverFlow. In fact, Geohotz retired from hacking because of the PS3. He only came back to release the codes and get some attention after FailOverFlow's success. What a douchebag.
Also thought it only happened because a hacker group posed as legitimate game devs so they could get their hands on a kit. That's what gave them the codes.
why would they trust him? and if sony hired him that would make them look desperate , and i bet sony can find a hundred other better programmers to hire
If this guy was any good at all good at hacking, he'd already have a very well paying job. These guys hacking phones and games, they suck at it. Hackers with any skill whatsoever are making big bucks in the military and huge corporations. Hackers are a valuable commodity. They don't go unnoticed, when they are any good.
That would be like hiring the man who broke into our house as a security guard. Just because he has experience doesn't mean you can trust him.
hahahaha that made me laugh bubble for you :D But what kind of a company hires someone who has an infamous background of leaking secret info to hackers?
Sneakers is one of my favorite movies. A farce, yes, but still fun :D
what so he can black mail them for money.
i believe it takes more skill to create a security program than to bypass it
They need to hire some kind of Hackers to counter the Crackers.
Trust me, Sony have very smart people that made the PS3 unhackable for so long and with their ongoing job to reduce hacking activity now. But this isn't going to go away easily. Thats why Sony are trying to kill the weed by killing the root.
Thats why Sony are trying to kill the weed by killing the root. LOL see what you did there. bubble voted. made my day.
Why do people think "hiring the hackers" is a new idea? Sony already does this. Only instead of hiring idiots who try to make names for themselves on the internet because of some hack they work on in their bedroom, they hire the people with not only the same skills, but the ambition to actually get a job using the those skills.
GeoHotz creates jobs. :)
yes, he has done his part in life, now he can die.
That made me LOL. Bubbles for you sir :)
Sony Tries so hard to protect themselves and their money but does shit when it comes to their consumers. Why didn't they step up their game when linux got exploited and spent $$$. Oh cause they had option 1. Free! remove other OS and screw consumers. Sony disgusts me the most out of all brands I have dealt with. That is why the court accused Sony of "The Computer & Fraud Abuse Act. The other thing that I find most disturbing is the idiots that are rooting for them.
^^^^^^^^ This. @Graphics: So when did you use your Linux OS on the PS3 for homebrew? Before or after George Hotz forced its removal? Oh, you don't have a PS3? Thought so.
And what other things do Sony do for free? PSN is free Web browser is free Home is free Life With Playstation is free Video/Audio chat is free Chat room is free And all the other countless features and services they added for free.
You are disturbing... They are giving consumers what they want(games) and even if they weren't it's no excuse to try to ruin their company. If you don't like what they do then simply don't buy from them.
@graphics u are hopeless dude
This is my reply to your comment: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
LOL you just watched ALFAxD_CENTAURO's video then clicked on one of the suggested videos. Nice lol :D
lol Alpha ´May God have mercy on your soul´ epic!
and that man is Chuck Norris. Take note kids, if this man catches you in the act of pirating any Sony games, he's gonna find out where you live and personally come over to your house to supply his own special brand of law enforcement. You'll have a few bumps and bruises by the end of the ordeal, but at least you'll be a little bit more the wiser. Stay safe, stay out of Chuck's way.
Pirating video games, bad Pirating porn, good Am I doing it right?.
Yes you are
Man porn is like $30 a movie. maybe more lol. Pornhub is considered piracy? Im pretty sure most people go to those legal websites now and dont care enough to Pirate a complete DVD but some people do i bet .
lol. made my day :D
who pays... for porn...?
lol sony is scuured!!! of one a man!! People will get jobs in todays economy because of hotz u got to love the guy!! & he makes sure I can buy my ps3 & own it at the same time like my pc!! Double kill awsome of hotz! pirating is not good though..:( thumbs down if your with me!! thumbs up if your with me!! no thumbs if your with me!! come on who's will me??!! onward non fanboy free thinkers!!! attack the empire!!!!!
Sorry but I stopped reading your comment at "scuured"!?!? That enough showed me just how much of a tool you are and can never be taken seriously even on these boards. ALFAxD_CENTAURO posted this earlier http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Yes Sony hire more lawyers and try to sue the entire internet Great strategy Sad news is it wont make the keys go away and you will just make things worse for yourself by pissing off the hackers even more.Dumb Sony @ Below "SCEA looking to bulk up its legal team." Right below the heading
Therye not hiring lawyers, theyre hiring anti piracey engineers. Did you even read the story?
failing hard as usual i see
you're a loner?
Not sure why you're not banned yet.
too late Sony...
I love how it's just the usual Sony hating trolls on this site that are always cheering on the @$$ Geohot and saying Sony deserves it on these articles. You can set your watch by it. I am surprised FailOverHero isn't here taking $hit as usual. I mean do any of you actual even own a PS3 much less play it? Why MUST the PS3 be hacked? Because everyone else rolled over and took it? You have a computer to do all these things with. I mean who do you people think you are fooling? You want them to do this so you can get free or cheap games and to cheat. That is the only reason I can see anyone fighting so hard to do this. But because Sony said no you act like spoiled children who were told they can't have any candy. BTW Sony wouldn't have taken away the Other OS if they had left well enough alone. Sony was quite content to leave the system open until Geohot said he would use it to hack the system. Why don't you go kick his @$$ for causing this.
This soo funny im getting board now reading these articles. the people who choose and have chosen to by a jailbreak or anyother hacking tool and used it on the ps3. will continue to do so. and are obviously not too worried about online. so there for uness the boards get changed that side will always be alive. however having said about the boards being changed. just like the PSP people will know what models to buy. (older) as for now i see no real point in hireing anymore people to combat this. take him to court bleed him dry. grab what small nutz he has string him up for a day. Then from here onwords change your boards and code. id like to defo choose the string hotz up by the nutz. not soo hot then !
sony should go after hackers first, no hackers=no piracy!
all i can say is LOL piracy CAN NOT BE STOPPED they can slow it down
I will never Pirate Games, i like to actually suppost the gaming companies
