the reason sony is trying to stop the scene
Fine, my other thread got deleted. Maybe was too hot for PSX Scene. Not going to complain but how about this:
Please don't compare the Warez Scene to the real PS3 scene because this is the reason SONY is after all the hacker in the first place.
Exactly, why are PC groups like Reloaded, Razor1911, Fairlight still active by now? Yes because the are scene groups and dont come on public forums.
The real PS3 scene had something real going on. Something legitimately good. Like Open Source software, it was a movement.
The problem is the rest of the population, people who don't give a fuk about the meaning of hacking the PS3 and jailbreaking it. They think it is some dorky lonely hacker trying to do it to fight the MAN and corporations so he can play free games. Some CSI bullshit where they show the hackers trying to break a bank in a dark room with 20 computer screens. No, it was never about that.
Just read Gran_C, he has been saying that the Sony lawyers think he has a vendetta against SONY which is quite the opposite. Just the knowledge drives him. Everyone thinks jailbreaking a PS3 is easy because all the work has already done for them. People are downloading his HV bible and they are not even looking at all of his hard work! It is absolutely amazing.
This was supposed to OPEN the PS3. Just like the iPhone jailbreak scene, it was to open the platform to anyone with the knowledge and passion to code bring real change to the PS3.
Just imagine all the possibilities. If the PS3 was OPEN like how fail0verflow wanted it. We could have all this software that the people want. NTFS on PS3, XBMC, Server software, multiple PS3 farm support.
Just think of Watson on Jeopardy. That was built on the same platform that the PS3 comes from. The possibilities are limitless.
SONY just doesn't get it. Long live hackers.
