A hardware developer has released a picture of a small flash device that they say will run the "new breed of Jailbreak" for the PS3 that is currently being developed.
Most likely using could cause FBI to show up at your door in a day or Sony ready to sue you.
Looks complicated. Don't wanna risk breaking my ps3 by taking it apart and adding chips over other chips to pirate a few games. Wonder how the guy knows what will be inside and taken out of the new PS3s being developed but interesting nonetheless. Edit: Nvm, just saw that they're gonna try to sell it like those dongles before it went out. Might pass to sell overseas but they might get sued if they sell in the US.
I agree, it looks too complicated, how many people would be able to do this (if it is true)? I mean the charm of jailbreaking the ps3 was in easy of use USB dongle right?
Sony will sue now and take them to the cleaners. There's a new CEO and a new games boss. everything that was before is wiped and new rules will used. Plus the share holders will be wanting a linching on anyone that does or releases this stuff now.
Yawn here we go again :/
It wouldn't be hard to put in, well if you know how to do it or have a friend to do it. Its just the fact you are mostly likely going to get busted by Sony, I mean how long did the other one last? Plus the people that lost money that they wasted on the old PS3Jailbreak were mad that they couldn't get their money back (How dumb do you got to be??).
Yeah, shouldn't this stuff being considered illegal?
Well I think it is for PS3 (At least what Sony has made it into). Now cell phones it doesn't seem to be a proble. Then again I guess their is a limit to what you can make a cell phone do.
Hackers,pirates. Dont you think its time to get a job already?
This is their job, they make this stuff for $2 and sell it on the net for $100.
you mean they break into something that isn't theirs and sell the stolen product for a profit.......that makes them thieves - and that isn't a job - it's a crime.
I am sick of this. Just want to play games (and pay for them, you can get great games for £10-20 now for the PS3 if you are not rich), all this jailbreak, otherOS, hacking rubbish is getting on my nerves. The PS3 is a solid console that was doing great till 2010 and then these idiots turned up to spoil it for us.
Yeah, that's called being brat. The need to play a game day one is a luxury, since often you can buy the same game new at half of the price in 4-6 months.
prolly its not like the ps3 was never unhackable before sony just never made any grand announcement about it, just like the YLOD still very common but will they say anything nope seriously if it were not for personal information broken into during the outrage Sony wouldn't have said a work about it and passed it off as there mistake but then again everything is jail breakable these days it seems almost like if you don't have a jail broken something or other your not "cool"
you're VERY opinionated for someone who treads lightly on borderline trolling.
nah i just say it like it is, ive seen my ps3 and my friends yellow light and go through 5 systems my xbox's have never red ringed (just upgraded hence why i made it pural) and my friends did once cause they thought they could keep it on for a day straight
5 ps3 bs i have two one is the model from when the ps3 first came out. xbox get the rrod all the time my uncles got one only a year after he got it. my old ass ps3 just got the ylod from over heating after nearly 6 years! plus who the hell has that much money to go through 5 ps3's? spoiled much? or too dumb to fix it your self?
Gone through 5 systems? Quit trying to use them at the bottom of a pool and you won't go through any PS3 systems. I have 2 PS3 systems a 40 gig that is almost 5 years old and a 160 gig slim that is going on 1.5 years, neither have had so much as a single hiccup. 5 Systems? I call bull.hit.
Have fun trying to f*ck with the chips inside the PS3 just to pirate games hackers. I'll stick to buying games to support the developers that do hard work to create great games for us.
@ consolez True, I was really thinking of becoming a game developer after I graduated from HS but after seeing how hard it is for them to make a good profit (preowned games/ privacy), the long 12 hours work days you'll have to put in and the not so secure positions within a gaming company after you finish making the game (heard it more like a contract than a job), I think I'll pass.
Are you serious? Pre-owned game sales don't put a dent in game sales at all. Do you know why? If somebody is buying used games they werent going to pay full price for the game anyway AND the developers make money off the Sell-in, not sell through. So once stores by the games, that's money in the bank. And besides the fact that more people buy games brand new over buying them used anyway just blows the "used games are hurting me" argument out of the water. Video Game companies have stock holders who want to gain more money, to make them gain more money the company wants to squeeze every dollar out of consumer's pockets by having them by one of the games they already made profit from. This is of course to make the store order more shipments of the game. But you all are going to keep toting this PR BS that companies like EA spit out till you don't even own the games you buy anymore. When you finally get your games all digital and cloud based, paying atleast 80 dollars for a title to only have it for a year, then having to pay another 80 after that year if you ever want to play again, you shut up with this childish minded bull. You should know that developers are funded by leechy money grubbers. That respectively means that they don't care about you, or your games. Just give them your money and shut up.
@ baker "If somebody is buying used games they werent going to pay full price for the game anyway." "And besides the fact that more people buy games brand new over buying them used anyway just blows the "used games are hurting me" argument out of the water." Idk about that... "GameStop has released a three-month trading report, which shows a record sales for the quarter totaling $1.9 billion. It turns out that 47.4% of the videogame retailer’s profits come from sales of pre-owned games, totaling $250.2 million. Meanwhile, profits from new games sales totaled $182.4 million (21.7%), while hardware sales accounted for $21.7 million (7.9%)." http://www.gamesradar.com/x... Edit: And btw, telling someone to shut up on the internet as well as name calling is pretty childish too.
First, I think those numbers are a little skewed because how are used games the biggest portion 50% of the time? When new games released are new 100% of the time? See how that doesn't work there. We're talking games that come out and sell 2 to 5 million copies, I don't think half of the people (0.5 and 2.5 respectively for the example) are trading those games in and then it selling up to half of the initial sell through numbers. That's ridiculous. The numbers have to be mixed in with just used media in general. Meaning from previous systems and older games as well. Though I have seen in Gamestop where a brand new game comes out, and it's used for 6 dollars off two days later lol. If you want to call that "used" I guess that counts. But the main point is the companies have already made profit from sell in. I guess the issue with the companies is Gamestop orders a set year round amount of new games and they dont order too many more because they're always hoping on trade ins. Second, the "shut up" wasn't me per say telling you to shut up, but used more as a "shut up and drink the Koolaid". You support these companies that don't support you. We have a gaming hobby. HOBBY. That means when we purchase these things that we love we have no return on them. It's a luxury. Game companies these days are putting into place provisions where they can keep you from controlling your purchase, and drain you over time for even having made the initial purchase. Now, you may think it's cool to never own a physical copy of something you purchased and be reoccurringly charged for it just to even have it. In essence you no longer own it, you've rented it. Thus giving the game companies what they really wanted. Taking the resell business away from Gamestop and other game boutiques and making the profit in a much dirtier way. So you lose the cheap price, AND the ability to play it when you get ready. I can only imagine what else will happen with all digital, cloud based gaming. Disc Media and HDD's are too big these days for me to not want a physical copy of my game. Just let me be able to install it myself if I want digital. Fight for physical media to remain and no online passes. Trust me man. If somebody is buying the used version of a new game they aren't planning to buy it for full price in the first place. Trying to force some one to buy the game full price of not have it all lessens the spread of that game and the sells for still aren't going to change. It's beating a dead horse, this situation. Just let people have free trade and feed their hobby. If you don't let them, then they'll find something else to do and that's bad for business.
this is where people make there mistake by telling the whole world if you jailbreak your PS3 stfu and leave to yourself.
I don't think Sony can do anything with this. The FBI themselves arrested a man for modding other peoples Xbox360's before but it was not considered a crime (the modding) as long as you've proven you don't use it for piracy (if I'm not mistaken)
Now seriously, who the hell gives a fuck about that lil' script kiddie and his h4x?! We love games, we play games, we buy games. Now leave us alone with this h4x0r-stories!
All this dose is downgradge current firmwares not much different than infectus. Who in the right mind would want to downgrade there ps3 to a firmware where game compatibility is number. Only reason games have been working so far is because of developers not signing updates with new keys.
ooooo a modchip, ahhwell it was a good run whilst it lasted sony R.I.P
I didn't know modding kills companies this days. lol!
Almost got excited till I read it was just a crappy JB revival that doesnt do anything great like most of us believed it would. like MKV ,or being able to turn it into a dedicated XBOX Media Center device ect ect ect. Yawn...... Thanks but no thanks, I'll buy my games at recognized retailers
This thing can go to hell. I can see where a ribbon cable may attach, but I guess those interested would get a schematic. But, I'd never jailbreak my PS3, would never risk breaking them. They are the center of my media entertainment and would have to be replaced if something happened to them.
