Perhaps this does meaning TB is gearing up for round 2 of the dongle wars. TB vs E3 coming soon to theater near you (hint: it's a drama . But competition can be good, so let's get on to E3. The scene's inside connection with the underground teams, GaryOPA, has stated the following:
E3, a team that has been in the scene since the late 3.41 JB era of the PS3, which has went on to develop methods to downgrades, and dual boot your consoles. We recently told you they were back, and better than ever before; meaning this time they brought gifts. And they also brought a list of goals which included bringing more EBOOT patches that anyone can, plus they have stated they are developing the next 4.20+ CFW themselves.
For those of you who were late for show, this scene really began when a dongle called the PS Jailbreak was released (which luckily was reversed pretty quickly), which helped users exploit the PS3 farther by releasing the first CFWs. These CFWs for 3.55 were put together but team work and communication, and now to this day it is what users have on their PS3s.
Now, it seems getting past the "4.11" hurdle has been everyone's attempt at their claim to fame, but with a team that works so closely with the PS3 consoles by offering multiple tools to the sceners.
Now here is where the tricky part comes in. For those of you who where with me when Sony started the lawsuit frenzy against PS Jailbreak, you know the PS3-Scene was in no way drama related; it was not until the free CFW came out that the scene filled with anger and hate. If this team does break that 4.11 barrier, a lot of people are going to be running to the scene to see what is happening.
I am predicting it, just look at my avatar, the year is PSX-SCENE a.d. v0.2!
And then when people have everything once again... are they still going to complain? Why they f***ing hate?!?!? At the end of the day, Sony is just going to try to patch the exploit, and people will start to whine and leave.
tthousand's tthoughts - I have been done with buying dongles for a long time now (last was Cobra), I would rather donate to the individuals helping make the scene dongle free. Devs likes CrashSerious, and oxt0xor. It is a shame with so many people using all the advances in the scene, these people who contribute absolute masterpieces do not get more credit(card) for their work. I think it is time we start thinking of better ways to promote our developers, that is the only way we can enhance the scene. Otherwise it is what it is, puzzled.
