Mate... really, you don't seem to get what's going on here. They are showing to everyone out there that they can circumvent the rights of the people with money. That's flat out corruption right there. I do not in any way like Geohot, in fact, I hope this will be a good scare for him so he stops being such a gigantic attention ***** and actually... you know... Works on something, instead of stealing from Fail0verflow and claiming it his own, but this is just plain corruption on $ony's part. If they manage to win. Do you know what's gonna happen to those emulators you and I love so much? That's right. GONE

Even with all that, we need this guy to win, otherwise everyone else (including the emulator devs) are going to have to stop their work permanently and other entities will take this way and trample over the consumer with bogus user contracts that you just HAVE to accept in order to use your device AFTER you paid for it. Remember that not all countries have a return policy (like mine )
Fact, not to mention, someone needs to tell whoever writes these damn articles that geohot DID NOT ALLOW PIRATED GAMES!!! Rage aside, it's only fueling Sony's case when the judges and the community dont understand sh*t

Geohot while doing a great service for the development community has also hurt it in ways that may result in horrible effects in the long run. So let's say sony wins this lawsuit, guess what apple will be right behind them and not over the iphone but for the apple tv jailbreak, roku will also get in the fold over mods made to their devices and the list goes on. While GeoHot is asking for help I wonder what happened to all that cash he made from the iphone donations? This kid is crying broke and the reality is he's far from it. I don't want him to lose but I want the community who's tripping over itself to help his defense to know exactly what I said "GeoHot collected close to a million dollars, if not more from the iphone jailbreak alone"..that was not his work! His work was a team ripoff..this ps3 jailbreak isn't his alone but again it's got his name over it. If he hadn't been such a blowhard and desperate for even more attention he could've put this out in a way we all could've enjoyed it or actually even better yet allow the person who finally broke through what he couldn't publish the methods. Don't get me wrong I don't hate geohot but unlike graf_chokolo (who's possibly the most humble genius i've seen hasn't done his stuff for fame) geohot has been notorious for flaming on the same community he's supposed to be a part of. I want him to win but I really want to see some humbling take place because he's got a promising future ahead of him and sometimes well you need a reality check so we don't end up with another Mark "The dickhead" Zuckerberg clone.
I really makes it difficult to read this stuff when people follow the main topic with useless trash that is incorrect, and flawed without reason (after a few post I just stopped reading) I am not going to name any in particular but it was posted here this week why $ony removed the OtherOS, and Geo did not enable piracy, I belive he went out of his was not to make it easy, failoverfl0w did what they said came, saw, brought back linux, if you don't like what is going on. LEAVE or just don't post on that topic, It really is sad when you think about it....
I now feel bad for even posting on this BS. Go Geo!!!!
Grandy I'll be waiting for some more news!!!!
Some how people still think that you cheat online with custom firmware right how can you even do that when you cant even connect to psn or online gaming on your ps3 for that matter also
you can cheat oline with a legit ps3 how you moddify the save file this is how people are cheating so maybe i should go all nuts and start flaming people who blaim custom firmware for online cheating
but you all have to point the finger at someone right ANYONE CAN CHEAT ONLINE
and sooner or later there account gets banned
and Piracy i grow so so tired of this debate its as old as ****en biblical wars
these days practicaly everyone is a pirate so you can all stfu
on the other side of things geohots wasting more time in court i see sony most likely already has everything off his hard drive an entire copy wouldnt even take 24 hours
so what is a protective order guna do theres nothing to protect anymore
and yes geohot may be an attention ***** but unlike the people above like Turkish who i think i finally understand some of his ways now he seems like one of those older gamer types but i still dont get his whole piracy argument
im saying atleast i thank the devs they didnt have to make us custom firmware at all they never had to take such risk as this dark alex made you all psp custom firmare didnt he and you thank him but some reason ps3 devs just get randomly hated i dont get it
Someone ban turkish, his rants and views are complete opposite of what this community is about. GTFO!!! Turkish = FAIL
Since when does October of 2010 = long before geohot appeared? Geohot's been on the scene for a considerable amount of time longer then that, releasing information about the PS3 and its capabilities long before your oh so precious dongle.

Go watch it, it was really interesting, really in-depth, and quite long, actually, considerably longer then all of geohot's interviews put together. (Don't get me wrong, I love fail0verflows work on the PS3 scene).
Also, I would like to see your source on this "word of geohot possibly spending prison time", because I have yet to find anything that could possibly link geohot to prison time.
I know you're a troll, and I also know your only reason here is to agitate this website's users and get unprecedented responses from said users, but I thought the users deserve the correct information.

LOL at all the people saying i'm an attention wh0re and question why I come to this community?
How can I be attention wh0ring if I just give my opinion? Its such a big f*cking deal around here because I'm against piracy and don't like geohot.
Just because my opinion differs from yours doesn't mean I'm attention wh0ring, its the dozens of kids here that insulted me (for giving my opinion) that are attention wh0ring.
And last, why am I here? Simply, because the PS3 scene is NOT all about hearing the diary of geohot and piracy. I come here to check news on homebrew and emulators.
There have been people here that were against emulators, but did you see me insulting and chasing them away?
"u're teh Attention wh0rezz" lmao, i'm not the one asking attention, STOP giving me attention, accept the opinion of others and live with it, dont make a big f*cking deal about it
Since you are such a fan, I'm leaving a link so you can study up and become a real pro.

Happy reading Turkish!
