Geohot has responded to his critics via his blog comments...
ps3news, are you serious???
Are you really that jealous? Or do you work for Sony?
People have been hacking video game systems for a long time, back to Bunnie and the Xbox. If I am hit with a lawsuit, I will fight it. I have not, nor do I plan to, circumvent any DRM, which is what the DMCA targets. Get your facts straight. A kid running around posting on a blog that he hacked the PS3 is nothing warranting a lawsuit.
Seriously, with all the noobs posting here, selling out sounds like a reasonable plan.
This is quickly getting worse than the iPhone scene.
There's not even a hack yet and already a war is brewing. Seems the like old PS2 days all over again.
