Future Hacks/exploits? –
I have been following the PS jailbreak with much excitement since it was first announced.
It would be great to have the same functionality of my original xbox (xbmc, emulators, FTP server, and on and on).
I have read people saying the PS Jailbreak will be a short lived hack. Once sony updates the firmware.
Will the PS Jailbreak open the door for future hack/exploits of the PS3? The ablity to run unsigned code should enable people to find new ways to hack the PS3?
To me this is just the start of all the future hacks to come. Am I wrong to think that?
It depends on how vulnerable the code that the curreng jailbreak messes with is, and how easy it is for that loophole is to close.
Personally, I've seen what piracy has done to the PC gaming industry, I've seen what it's done to the music industry, I don't want to see it mess up the console gaming industry, so I hope Sony can kill it for good.
i didn't buy this device for piracy, i have 2 PS3, one is going be for gaming and online so i am going to purchase all my PS3 games.

it really depends on how vulnerable this code is like you said, closing it won't be that simple, if you can run any unsign codes, expect new hack methods
The PC gaming industry is healthy and fine. Piracy means nothing when you wouldn't have bought it new anyways, ya know? Buying a used game is as bad as stealing it in the publishers and developers eyes. They make NO money off of the second sale. Why do you think Game Stop sells their used games only slightly lower, to get you to buy new.

And piracy is already rampant on every other console but PS3, so if it was gonna kill it, it already would have. I myself have all 3 of the big 3, and the handhelds, each one modded, because I dislike paying 60 for something I will only mildly enjoy. But if I actually enjoy it, I buy a copy. Pirates usually have more hardcopy games than the average consumer.
Not likelly now (but probably in the future)

probbably in the future, we don't know the level access we have with ps jailbreak, lets wait and see, we can launch unsigned code that is a new biggining for the scene.
You wanna end piracy,well start charging a fair price for games! Thats why piracy is doing so well,people dont want to pay (rightly so imo) for unoriginal,ill conceived graphically pleasing fodder.So much so that people are turning back to the old classic games.Which put game play ahead of graphics,i suppose mainly because they didn't really have a choice with there limited hardware! But thats beside the point,they still played better.
Man,i play fifa 10 online and dont get me wrong its fun,sometimes.When the noobs disappear, But i remember football games in the nineties pre cd format(slow junk).That were way more responsive and enjoyable to play,prob because they were based on cartridge rather than cd.People complained for ages about cartridge games costing so much,and now cd based games (which cost pennies to produce)cost double that of the cartridges!
Not a gun, no, but there's an incentive to update so you can go online again and download patches. Thanks to the patch-it-later attitude that owners of the PS2 and X-Box 1 didn't have to put up with, games can be released with big bugs that need fixing. Unless someone can figure out a way to stick those patches onto the web so they can be downloaded and applied to an offline PS3, that incentive's still there.
