Neowin writes about an attempt by a PS3 hacker to petition Sony to allow unrestricted Homebrew on the PS3 by giving away a set of free games.
Looked it up and those games all suck taint.
This is not news, this is "ps3 scene" news for hackers and pirates using CFW. Get the f*ck away sneeking in with your cfw news on N4G. And also, those homebrew games suck, give us emulators or gtfo.
The should build an app store for PSN, like XBLA. Its been proven to work in many places like Android. But that is open source and from what I have seen, open source and backward compatibility are not Sony's friend.
i agree and been saying this for quite some time now. apps are like the future. or if not, they definitely are the NOW. The first console to embrace this will probably get a major push. Microsoft opens games up to anyone with an XNA kit. Now if they could some how allow apps then thatd be sweet.
never gonna happen.
Lame, lame, lame. If you want to play those games, I know of a revolutionary device that will run those games ten times as faster than a PS3 with half the coding. It's a little thing called a COMPUTER. And it's an invention that's been able to run those games for about ten years. If you spent money on a PS3, or are reading this comment, you probably own one right now.
One problem thou, how are they gonna monetize their own product over the surplus of content? On my psp I spent way more time on homebrew than any umd/iso.
And if this free option really did catch on... What does sony get? Lost sales in ps store. That is all.
Wait wait so they are saying they have stolen dev kits and made games then want sony to unsecure there ps3's to allow there pos games that were technically made on stolen software to be allowed to operate on ps3's. Ok sure the fbi will be right there lawl.
I don't think Sony wants to hear from ANY hackers these days. Check back in about 3 years. If your fellow hackers hadn't proved that if Sony gives you an inch everyone takes a yard they may have been in a better mood to discuss it. Just forget it.The cons out weigh the pros by a mile. Besides that is stolen property that you are using to do this
In light of what people have done to Sony over the last few weeks, I would be shocked if they allow any type of homebrew access to any Sony system ever. Too much at stake and too much bad blood against the hombrew and hacker communities. I'll bet their next system is going to be so locked down (to anyone but legit developers), it will be ridiculous. Devs are already bitching about lost sales due to the free games Sony is giving away. I can only imagine what they'll say about Sony allowing random people to release free homebrew games.
If they did allow homebrew apps maybe they could get a decent web browser on the ps3.
It is to late for such "negotiation" they should think about before those stupid cfw`s, hacks, geohotz`s... and i cant imagine running antyvirus software on my ps3...
Go away with your puzzles. Publish them for mobiles and PC. Thanks to CFW we now have a hacked network, huge losses and this will mean less games for me. So for now, I humbly say "go away". If this continues, I'll be less polite and beat you with a stick.
After the crap that Anonymous pulled I highly doubt that Sony would allow this.
Sorry hackers but you people pissed off sony with the whole PSN issue. I dont believe they want to make any deals with you now.
You mean they were willing to make deals in the first place?
Whoops you caught my fault in my argument. Nice eye. What I really meant was. If you want something from Sony now then forget because you pissed them off with your hacking.
Sorry, but some of you hackers messed stuff up for everyone. Besides, I personally got a console to play games, I don't give a damn about apps, and I don't care about homebrew ANYTHING. These guys need to go and build their own system or something.
