GripShift suddenly popular in eBay over exploit

QJ.net: "If you want some cash, go on eBay and sell your copy of GripShift. The PSP scene's getting stir-crazy over the exploit found in GripShift. eBay listings for the game are getting craaaazy bids. There's one listing that already received a bid for US$ 99.99.

The whole craziness started when MaTiAz found a buffer overflow vulnerability in the game only a few days ago. It wasn't long before he and FreePlay released a Hello World version of the exploit. The whole thing reminds me of how Wiibrew first started. I expect we'll be seeing great things happening soon."

The story is too old to be commented.

I will never sell my copy, no matter the amount.

(slight exaggeration...)

.....bad & yes the music sucks and I love hip-hop.

This game would've been far better without the 'urban' music.

LeShin3568d ago

I really liked the music. Of course it's just a matter of opinion as I can only "tolerate" one song in the entire Burnout Paradise soundtrack. Thank goodness they allowed custom soundtrack and released the classic Burnout tunes!

what does this exploit do?

gaffyh3568d ago

Allows you to run homebrew code on the latest PSP firmware, on PSP-3000. At the moment the only code ran is hello world, but eventually it will become a way to install custom firmware.

I guessed gripshift would get a major sales boost from this.

Cookigaki3568d ago

Well, QJ certainly didn't do a very good job explaining what this is all about. It reads like a bunch of gibberish.

Now devs know how to get their games to sale extra. Just leave an "accidental" security hole in the program.

kdawg53567d ago

ahh i see

I already put CFW on my PSP myself (PSP Slim) so I wont be needing this game.

To sell on PSP all you need is either.

1. A BADAS* game like GOW.

2. An exploit to run code.

moja3567d ago

This is FUD to jack up prices on eBay. If/when CFW on the 3000 is released, you won't need this disc as a downgrader will be released. If someone is serious about 'homebrew' anyway they wouldn't have a 3000.
