PS3Stinger has been announced!
Looks like we have some more competition on our hands. Earlier today it was announced by one of our members that a new Jailbreak clone would be hitting the scene very soon. Going by the name "PS3Stinger", it promises not to "sting" you with a high price. An official website is in the works that should be up within the next few days. A twitter page has also been created to help spread the news of the up and coming clone. Although there twitter page has an image of the original PSJB, The announcer Tech1000 states that it's:
I sent in an email earlier today requesting some more information and got the following response:
Just for reference and will change next week once the pcb's are ready.
Guess we will just have to wait and see what this new competitor is made of. For more information you can send your questions via email too: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for the mail, Price depends on quantity 50-100 pieces is Euro35 stock ready to ship around 15th Sept (Pcb's ready next week so maybe a bit sooner). Exactly the same as the jailbreak as its a direct clone. Difference with dealing with us is fast replies and we won't screw our customers on price, Also can do fast overnight shipping via Fedex to the US. Some of the guys we are dealing with already are allsystemsgo.nl /Consolepro.nl and loads of the UK sellers including wii-chip.co.uk/ 360upgrades.co.uk so lots of people to vouch that we are legit as well.

Just received word that the PS3stinger will be shipping out stock on Friday/Monday.
Wont be long now guys. ;) Thanks go out to TECH1000 for keeping the scene posted.
Just wanted to let you know we are shipping out Stinger stock on Friday/Monday and will mail some pictures over of the finished pcb's before we ship. We decided not to show hand soldered or unfinished boards as it makes the product look nasty like the others! All the resellers will be able to ship out to the customers next week and we have a great supply of atmega's so no issues with stock over the next month. We will be the cheapest supplier and all stock is from the EU so no customs issues for the sellers.
Update 11/04/10 - 32k Stinger is now available and in stock.
32k Stinger is now available and in stock.
P.S: For anyone that didn't know, All Systems Go
is no longer apart of PS3Stingers development. Hasn't been for quite some time now actually. I was going to add that bit of information to the first post when I first got word of it but, since there was no real
progress going on at the time, I decided to wait.
All systems go
has requested that I keep the reason confidential. So please, do not ask him for any information regarding this project as he is no longer involved. Thanks. ;)
