Ps3 hacked!



Same guy who created BlackRa1n for the iphone hack. This is the REAL deal. If Geo says he's done it, than pandoras box is been open.

Good for him. They said they were gonna make the PS3 impenetrable. They didn't want another PSP on their hands since that thing was hacked since day one. Either way, Sony will figure it out and probably fix it with the next firmware. You can't go online unless you update so it all may be for nothing.

Wow, 3 years? Someone has no life.
I could really care less, honestly, I am not some crazy gamer who buys a new game every 2 hours, so spending a few dollars here and there for a game or two ain't the end of the world.
I predict that it will be a while before it is safe for people to start hacking their own systems. Not really worth it IMO.

Exactly.

I support my hobby. If people keep ripping off the industry, it only hurts us consumers in the end.

Only problem is, with homebrew stuff, the guys that code and make that will now have to use the hack and find a way to code the emulators etc. to work with the PS3 software... Which could possibly even take another 3 years. hahaha

^^very unlikely. The kernels PS3 runs on aren't that different from older gen's.

George Hotz is the man!!!!!!!!!!!!!! now someone tell him to get back to work on an untethered jailbreak for the touch.

No, PS3 was released over 3 yrs ago. This guy, which btw is a 15yr kid took 5 weeks to crack it.
