Boss of UK Kinectimals and Elite studio Frontier, David Braben, has hit out at PS3's hacking community - arguing that a purchase of a console does not bring "unrestricted ownership".
Braben admitted that he is "really annoyed" with hackers who claim they can do what they wish with hardware they have purchased.
The development veteran called on fellow studios to help Sony strategise against those who are keen to jailbreak the console, warning that "tomorrow, it will affect all of us".
"Buying a PlayStation 3... does not give me unrestricted ownership of it," argued Braben. "If I 'dig' into it, I can't just sell or even give away all the information I find."
