"This month we're focusing our attention on Sony. Sony has been in the news a lot recently: suing developers for figuring out how to run free software on their PlayStation 3 consoles."
Read on for more fail from defectivebydesign.org
Aw, poor little mommy boys.
They still live in their basements hacking into the latest gaming device. Sony want to drag them up to the surface to feel the sun for the first time in over 15 years
When the jailbreak opened up multiplayer cheating they crossed the line.
These hackers like Geohotz get more and more pathetic by the day. I can't wait for SONY to wipe the floor with these pimply little nerds. Email Sony all you want you dumb piracy supporters it won't help you break the law.
They aren't and haven't broken the law. And that stereotype of nerds being pimply and not ever going outside is ridiculous. You should show a little more respect for the type of people who make your consoles, games and electronics you use daily.
The Hackers should drop the whole "We are doing it for Homebrew" lie cause their isn't 1 actual Homebrew game out there. 99% of the things in CFW is backup loaders for playing pirated software.
how is that hackers on one console manage to steal $1.2 million in games/dlc, yet whenever some ps3 hacker comes out with a comment, this site goes into attack mode
So since the makers and users of that one console didn't care about hacking, the makers and users of PS3 should just lay down and take it. Interesting thought process there.
I know WTF lol. USE YOUR BRAIN PEOPLE. and lOL and grammar nazi i can't wait for the day when people realize what type of losers point out grammatical errors to somehow disprove a point they can't otherwise with facts.
Microsoft confirmed it wasn't that much.
I say screw all those hackers, they've been the ones to blame from the beginning. They seem kinda thick to think that people should support them, when they were responsible for everyone getting screwed in the 1st place, all they want is to steal and cheat, regardless of what platform they do it on.
Yeah.. no. Stop being so ignorant. It is completely unfair to say all they want to do is steal and cheat just because some other people misuse the exploits they created. People like Geohot are GOOD people. They invest lots of time to open up the hardware that WE PAID FOR, so we can use it as we like. Whether we use it for illegal purposes or legal ones is a personal choice that you can't blame on the hacker. It's like saying we should blame knife makers for all the brutal stabbings that have occurred merely because they made these sharp utensils available.
What devs? How is egohot a dev? Website Fails soo much.
"Guys, I don’t joke, it’s serious. And to prove it, I kept my word and uploaded all my HV [hypervisor] reversing stuff. Upload it everywhere so Sony [can't] remove it easily. Grab it guys, it contains lots of knowledge about HV and HV procs," wrote Chokolo, while publishing links to where the material could be found." Holy shi... that guy is so gonna' get "raped" by Sony eventually.. He should just give up asap. Sony, like every other company in this world don't like losing.
If Sony's really is using that three step fix (according to that hacker KaKa), wouldn't the HV and HV procs be kinda useless now considering they'll have to start from scratch with maybe a lil knowledge? Might still be useful for 3.55 users to continue adding custom features for themselves though right? Source: http://gamer.blorge.com/201...
Yup, that's what it's for. Ultimatley I think it was for work getting linux back.
I think I'll tell Sony to harass the hackers more aggressively.
Thats the equivilant of telling a department store to stop harassing shoplifters.
i know lol. These hacker/hacker supporters need some serious help in understanding how the world works.
No, it's the equivalent of telling the ignorant folks to stop harassing the knife manufacturers for making knives available that were used in a stabbing. Some people use knives for bad things, others use them for good. You can't blame the makers of the knife for what's done with it. And the same goes for the hackers, you can't blame them for how other people use the hacks. It's completely unfair. All they wanted to do is give us our FREEDOM to use what WE PAID FOR as we like.
We paid for these systems to play games, not tool around with them. Your logic tragically flawed.
@Belasco: Even if that was true, it would hardly make it "tragically flawed". But it's not true. It doesn't matter what you bought the system for originally.. The point is that YOU BOUGHT IT. It is your piece of damn hardware now. So you should be allowed to do whatever you want with it in your home, and if what you use it for is illegal or legal is merely up to you. Just like with any other freaking thing you buy. So no, your "logic" if you can even call it that, is the one that's flawed.
Microsoft and Nintendo dominated february's NPD sales.
How about we talk about something more relevant to the gaming industry like sales? Oh, wait...
C'mon guys.The 360 and the Wii have been hacked "for years", and the PS3 hasn't...
Who do you believe "should" be doing better in sales? Remember all those "Kinect will fail!" articles?
Times are changing people, we can't all focus on how well a games suppose to look anymore.
Your entire post, and by association my response, is completely irrelevant. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
I was just speaking in general.While Sony's chasing hackers, Microsoft and Nintendo is selling hardware and software.
Sony completely "dominated" the last two gens(mostly because of the major 3rd party support), so why can't they catch a break now?
Casual gaming is a lot more massive than most people think.
Titanz: Last I checked, Wii sales are down, and Sony is poised to overtake the 360 this year. So it seems Sony are masters of multi-tasking. Besides, sales are irrelevant.
I'm going to have to ask you to make some sense. Take your time. You can even wait for your meds to kick in before you start if you want.
You gotta understand, hacked systems shouldn't be selling better than hack proof systems.
NPD. That's all I need to say in reply.
its an american sales figure which isnt relevant to the rest of the world,what about how xbox is failing in japan? Never mention that do they?
But "overall", the Xbox 360 sold the best in that month(followed by the Nintendo Wii).
It's just the fact that Sony fans are so oblivious to whatever Sony does! It's like Sony can "never" do any wrong, and they're "always" right.
yep and now at MS you are gonna be stuck with casual on casual on casual games because of this overwhelming HW sales. its really sad.
lol @ the headline... You want Sony to stop harrassing hackers? Well, its simple tell the hackers to stop harrassing Sony's machines. Its that simple really. Or else more petitions are going to be needed to keep up this fight in court.
Geohot: Hello there Children! Hackers: Hey Geohot. Geohot: Hows it going? Hackers: Bad. Geohot: Why bad? Hackers: People won't stop harassing us and we did'n do anything serious, just hack our PS3's so we could play pirated games and ruin multiplayer for everyone else. *facepalm*
How about we tell the hackers to quit stealing Sony's games instead. I am all for freedom digitally, but not when an ip is being damaged/stolen.
Uhhh, the ignorance of people posting on this story is immense.. The hackers aren't the ones stealing the games. They only opened up the system so that people can use what they paid for however they would like. Other people chose to use those exploits to enable backups, and that's their choice. You can't blame the hackers like Geohot for that. Just like you can't blame the manufacturer of a knife when someone gets stabbed.
Actually we can and just did. A knife is a physical object, not a digital ip. There is a big difference, they're not equatable. The ignorance of people who can form sentences not understanding that stealing and enabling stealing is wrong is immense. This is like giving a criminal a stolen car(CFW) and then saying I didn't know what he was going to do(Piracy). Well you did know he was a criminal and stealing the car was wrong in the first place. That's called guilt by assosiation my dimwitted friend.
