why was it down so long? that makes it sound like its back up
good video pachter Sony was the victim, and we the users were victims. End of story! Now time to catch the criminals.
Yeah he brings up some good points.I don`t know why people hate on him so much, he`s actually a nice guy that talks a lot of sense. I think it`s just the way smaller sites take things he says out of context and make whole articles about it, in any case yeah, good vid Pachter.
Not just small sites they are all doing it.... I like how he can take it on the chin in videos like on gametrailers' bonus round and jokes about being miss quoted. What he says does make sense
Ah, Palin's law. Baffling statements quoted verbatim can now be falsely accused of being "out of context" when it suits you.
To me, he has that typical wall street condescending tone. He basically says that Sony's losses should be minimal because the majority of PS3 owners (80%) do not have enough money to be interesting targets for potential hackers seeking monetary gain.
Never watched an episode before, but I must say Pachter actually did a really good job of explaining things. Mind you, none of it was new info for me personally, but I'd imagine for a lot of GT users and random visitors it was quite insightful.
Im in your boat, nothing new as far as news goes, but a lot of useful info none the less. I also havent seen an episode before, and it makes me wonder how/why people rip on this guy so much. Seems rather intelligent to me.
very great video pachter
Probably the most well informed bit of info out there... Better than all of these crappy blog sites spreading their BS about the PSN outage.
he does bring up good points but he also get a lot of stuff mixed up... like when he compare geohot to some chinese conterfit shop riping off oakley... thats not what geohot did, he only moded his ps3...
He blew open the doors of the PS3 to allow piracy. Had he ONLY modded HIS PS3 nobody would have known, however he shared the tools openly for others to do the same. This act steps over the boundaries of one modifying his own hardware for personal use and into the realm of creating custom firmwares so anybody with access to google can run stolen software. @frenchdumbass below. You can personally mod your PS3 all you want, however if you do manage to enable the running of pirated ISOs on your PS3 then keep it to yourself, otherwise you are no longer simply modding your PS3, you are perpetrating and becoming an accomplice to piracy. (which is illegal) You can also mod your cars, TV sets, computer cases, etc etc, any goods you have purchased as much as you want as well, as long as it falls within the boundaries of our laws. Mount rockets on your car and go for a drive, see how that works out for you IRL. Your young kids/driving drunk analogy is completely foolish btw, it makes no sense whatsoever. Driving drunk is not dependent upon age, people of all ages do it. When starting an engine and entering a roadway all persons with (or without) a valid licence under law are not permitted to be intoxicated. If they do so they will be punished as the laws dictate. We are free to do whatever we want within the confines of (for most people here on N4G) a democratic society, and the laws and regulations which that society has laid out.
so what... when we buy stuff we can mod it caus its ours... lets not forget our freedom over corporate ideals... its like to say no more cars for young ppl since they are the one who drive drunk... its life dude ppl are gonna get drunk and kill them self and others becaus in the end we are free
same thing happened to microsoft, console got hack because ppl moded it and spilled how to do it over the web... did microsoft went at war against those ppl??? no cause they knew it would be a big mistake... i hope sony will learn from it, corporation should never be able to tell us what to do with our stuff or to try to shut us up
He can be good but why does he have to show off he's a hundred-thousand/millionaire? We get it, we're gamers we have 10K at most, he's a lawyer who spends his time on a site entertaining and trying to impress nerds... I think he has ego problems.
T_T This sucks...(psn outage not the video, it was fine)
