Well if this hacking thing doesn't work out, Geohot also has another possible avenue for a career - rapstar! His recent PS3 hack rap has smashed 1 million views on YouTube already.
Gee he's so hot. Happy Sony fanboy day! ___________ Sony 'til I die
it's hard to rap when you live sticked on a chair in your room with your PC living in a cave
One Million in VIEWS, but not one million in sales...
Million youtube views makes you ALOT of money son. Hes laughing.
I find it odd or funny that he hacks the PS3 for piracy. Then other people expect, people to buy a rap song or even an album from him. Why? he's only for piracy, so wouldn't it be better to piracy his shit, even sell it for your own profit.
Maybe there is a remote chance for him to get laid now.
Man, can this guy be any more of a douchebag?
@FanboyPunisher It only equates to money if you can put out highly viewed videos on a consistant basis. Nobody is trying to hear this kid rap again, son.
he doesn't get money at all. he isn't a you tube paartner which means he gets no money. i know this because he only has 3 videos you don't get partner status from 3 videos.
you don't gt partnership but when a video gets enough views youtube will send you an automated message asking you if u want to make revenue for that specific video, I know this becase I have had this done 2 times already with 2 videos that got 10,000+ views.
Only so they can comment what a c**t he is.
Its because hes clinically retarded... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
yeah he must be really stupid that's why he was able to crack the ps3 .. lololololollol I bet he is way smarter than most of the people on n4g .
He cracked it when info leaked, look how smart that makes him =)
" I bet he is way smarter than most of the people on n4g ." No shit. I have #@#$ing snails living in my garden that are probably smarter than most of the people on N4G.
Apparently his Iphone hacks are utter shit they fuck the phone after a while. There's posts on his, well old blog saying his hacks were shit.
I saw it but i instantly regretted it. I wanted those few mins of my life back.
I know a way: Don't waste time commenting on N4G. @Below, yeah i'm wasting time. But i don't have nothing better to do, so..
irony look it up
So shut the F u
He's pretty gangsta recording from his parent's house.
people like to laugh at re re's
This hacker beyotch is getting way too much attention.
To get attention, people must give it to him.
Umm...3/4ths of N4G click on any story about him, so...yeah!
so did Star Wars kid. A retard is still a retard.
Retard? He did more in his life than everyone here will achieve... I'm not supporting him or nothing, but damn, he isn't retard.
what did he do?pub a stole key or something hes going in the books for that one.haveing a gay ass rap video is retarded.
Why do you assume that? Do you know every person here or something? And he is an idiot. If he was a sensible person he would taking this seriously instead of making crappy raps and begging people to help him get money. He may be smart when it it comes to tech but he obviously is an unstable, anti social attention whore. @ Raven_Nomad. just another weak excuse to justify what was done. Is that really all you've got?
Seriously Kon, STFU or else you'll be down to one bubble very soon. And you know what that means? That means you'll have to troll double the amount of articles to occupy your entire day.
No he'll just start another account just like you will when YOU reach one bubble.
Yeah, NICE! Telling people to agree with you or ELSE! That's REALLY going to give you credibility with any of your opinions! Seriously, are you THAT damn insecure about what you say that you have to threaten people like that?
Here is the generalization of people on n4g alexa.com/siteinfo/n4g.com
"Retard? He did more in his life than everyone here will achieve" Why destroy it all putting his ars where ain't called?
"He did more in his life than everyone here will achieve" What the hell are smoking, bro? Can I take a hit?
Being Smart doesnt give you a free douche bag pass.
Dude brought the hotness on Youtube! Seriously, I love how since it's the "precious PS3" all of a sudden it's wrong to pirate or download things from the internet, yet I'm certain most of the people here condemning him have probably downloaded songs, movies or apps off the internet at one point or another. Get over it, when you buy something, you have the right to do whatever the heck you want with it. Speaking of full retard, I'd say it was pretty damn retarded to re-tweet the Jailbreak code, but that's just me. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Sony!
Piracy is always wrong dipshit.
@Raven You are wrong... when you buy something, you don't have the right to do whatever the heck you want with it. You sound like a whiny child...
What are you talking about, Esena? If I buy a gun I AM allowed to rob banks with it. I can slap people with it. I can change it from a semi-auto to a full auto because I bought it and it's mine. If I buy a car, I can modify it so that I fail every smog check in California and STILL drive it legally because I bought it. I can jail break my iPhone and use it to steal the minutes of other iPhone users. I can do whatever I want with whatever I buy!!!!
When you buy something, you own it. Bottom line. If I buy a new car, it's my right to take out the engine and put in a new one, is it not? If I buy a P.C. it's my right to remove parts or upgrade others right? So please, tell me how is it not right to be able to flash your PS3 once you paid for it? Or take it apart or add whatever you want to it? It's YOUR PROPERTY. Get over it.
You're cherry picking options, Raven_Nomad. I also cherry picked some things to show you that your overall point is wrong. You can NOT buy a car and modify it in a way that violates California smog laws. If you buy a PS3 you can not use it to play stolen games. For every "But I can" there is probably a "But you can not" to match it. Buying something does not make you God.
@Biggest: Missing the point FTL! Not infringing on anyone else's rights are an essential part of the process. Using CFW to use HB apps: SHOULD be legal (though Sony and most of the brick wall that's N4G users seem to think otherwise). Using CFW to cheat on PSN: Should be ILlegal! See, two different ways to think of it. Problem is...most on N4G have tunnel vision and can only think of one possible way to use it.
@Biggest You know how long it took me that you were being sarcastic your first post. A good 3 minutes... That is too long for someone to notice sarcasm! :)
George Hotz isn't under fire for homebrew or custom firmware creation. You, and everyone else trying to defend him here, are missing the point. My response in this thread was for Raven_Nomad, who seems to think that purchasing a thing means that he can do whatever he wants with it. That is not how the world works. That is also not the point of the George Hotz situation. I know what the point should be. You don't know what the point is if you think Sony is ruining George Hotz because he ran some homebrew on his PS3.
"George Hotz isn't under fire for homebrew or custom firmware creation." No, he's under fire for providing the public with the tools to create and run homebrew and custom firmware. This is only a bad thing if you believe that the public should not be allowed to run those things in the first place.
You buy the hardware, and use the software.
This...which ain't there to be hacked, moded or anything BECAUSE IT IS NOT YOURS.
Generalized property rights aren't adapted to digital objects.
"Seriously, I love how since it's the "precious PS3" all of a sudden it's wrong to pirate or download things from the internet, yet I'm certain most of the people here condemning him have probably downloaded songs, movies or apps off the internet at one point or another" This is one of the stupidest comments I've ever seen on N4G. That's quite an achievement considering the idiocy the article comments tend to attract.
The law says otherwise, deal with it.
So Maxconsole finally got this approved. That site is like the cesspool of gaming sites.
Jesus Fn christ first off this literally has nothing to do with anything other then his video reaching 1 million view. By this getting approved, it here by makes it standard to make any youtube video about gaming that reach 1 million views get approved, because there is no difference between them and this. This offers nothing new at all. So i am guessing it's okay to submit this as news: http://www.youtube.com/watc... or any other game related video that hit over 1 million as news. i facepalm the approvals and i facepalm maxconsole
And this is news, how?
Anything can be news on the internet. "Moron makes ass of himself on internet... More at 11."
Don't worry, give it about half a day and N4G will be back to our normally high standards of editorials about Bobby Kottick being the Anti-Christ and lists chronicling gaming's top ten instances of underboob.
A lot of people will watch to laugh at a white guy trying to rap, it is rare for a white guy to rap good and not sound dumb.
He got a five head.
Congrats for a new hobby lawl
"The next jailbreak from geohot will be the one out of prison hahahaha" Lol that made my day
Any time there is a big fucking dick on youtube its sure to get alot of views. Just saying.
Geohot is a cool troll. You're giving him publicity y'know.
i admit to a case of fanboylism
His rap is kinda corny.
geo hot is a poser d-bag...
* claps real slowly * -___-
Cause what you say is what you say Say what you say how you say it whenever you saying it Just remember how you said it when you was spraying it So who you playing with huh huh huh huh?
As lame as it is, I still like the dude. I hope the hate he receives so often ("get raped in jail", "drop dead") will return to its senders in form of cancer. Maybe that will teach them something, about being nice to others.
this is news,how?
This guy is a Media whore. Nothing else to see here.
