Nun dürfte Sony eigentlich nichts mehr gegen Jailbreaker unternehmen dürfen, sie haben den Key ja selber veröffentlicht. :D Und Blödheit schützt vor Strafe nicht.[/lang]
That is all.
now we know what imagination could truly do
you guys have to realize that the legal department of sony does not necessarily represent the rest of the company (hell the main body is in japan!).
The legal team is likely attempting to score some points with the main group.
But they are going to be a laughing stock.
Its more like, the bosses are saying "some one has to pay for this"
and the legal team quickly said "we'll do whatever it takes it make some one pay" to show off.
so they will first go after geohot. Even if it is fruitless. (cuz they can go back to the bosses and say "hey we tried, blame the legal system")
Now kevin butler (being the CEO of awesome) is doing what he does best making their best customers laugh (homebrew scene).
To that i say: Cue burns voice "excellent".
kinda true, the released keys might actually sink Sony's battleship lol
in laymans terms, its like having a cool uncle, who gradually got more and more ****ed up until hes in a closet with you, examining your "hardware" and "software" "remotely" trying to see if you've made any "modifications"...and if you try to use his "services", he'll use his "banhammer":lol:
It's all about what-ifs.
Instead of improving, they go the opposite way. Just think for a minute though. They took away Linux, 3rd-party support, etc. but only after they were used to exploit. And while most denied of the exploitation being used for piracy, just check popular sites for PS3 games downloads and torrents.
And if you've lived through 1's and 2's, you would know why they have to do this, especially now that CFW's are out and not needing jb stick to run backup/pirated games. In my city, there are several people jailbreaking PS3's to play 'free' games and I've been to 2 of those places. All I can say is HOT business, even though they had to pay for the jb sticks as well. After the downgrade method came out, more ads were up. With CFW's out now, cheaper to get it hacked and easier to play backup games, I'm sure it won't take long.
While there are ones wanting to play online, not as many as we think. Many I know bought just for the Blu-ray alone when it first came out and haven't bought any game. I bought two PS3's but one w/ OFW is used for home theatre media streaming and online. The other one w/ CFW I have also for streaming use along with my favorite FTP and a couple of backup games that my bro-in-law next door haven't bought, GT5 and MvC3. Will be buying MvC3 myself. It's good to live next door to someone who buys most of the top-rated games and you can just borrow and some you buy as collectibles.
I'm sure they wouldn't have taken those out if there was no hacking to begin with, or else they wouldn't have put them in in the first place. And if there was no hacking, maybe they woud spend time to improve things instead of patching the security holes hackers exploited.
And while we already know that they make profits on software and not hardware, that's why they're putting up a fight. But unlike before, they won't let things go easily. Openly challenging them, like mocking them, that's like a big slap in the face. Imagine you being in their shoes.
This is really interesting time, really. I'm gonna follow it through to see how things unfold. This is a good time for Sony as well. PS3's should be closing in to their last leg. I mean they've been out for quite a few years already. Time to finish up what's needed to roll PS4's out. Should be using this to do experiment on security and implement that on PS4's. Not bad for Sony at all.
It's too bad. I love what the devs are doing to the homebrew community. And while they don't encourage piracy, that's the most probable outcome. Can't have it both ways I guess.
