Sony will sue (technically, you are violating the DMCA by circumventing your device's copyright protection measures) and worse, they may brick your systems, gleefully... the more hacked systems they take out, the more systems they will likely sell in replacement (and they make a profit now, on those consoles).
Sony is not Microsoft. They are entirely different animals, and they've shown their true colors, well before Geohot got served.
