Sony succeeds in banning PS Jailbreak devices in Europe
Sony succeeds in banning PS Jailbreak devices in Europe –
Good news for Playstation 3 fans.
Sony is not sitting idly and watching the PSJailbreak wreck havoc. Apart from sanctioning the very mention of the name over at US websites, Sony has finally succeeded in banning the selling of the modchip in Europe.
After releasing a security firmware update which made the PSJailbreak useless, Sony has gone 1up now and the Japanese manufacturer has cut the grass from under the feet of prospective hackers through an order which makes it illegal to sell the modchip and all its clones in Europe. This news has been confirmed by ChipSpain, one of the leading modchip online retailers who have taken off their stock of the PSJailbreak from their website following this recent order.
This is really positive news for Sony and we hope they can soon stop the selling of this modchip throughout the world. It won’t be foolish to say that hackers are having a tough time. First, the security update and now this. As for PS3 fans, you should be relieved that being loyal to your console has paid off and you can still do whatever you want with your PS3!
Friday, October 8, 2010 · Prohibition to sell PS Jailbreak and its clones.
PS jailbreak and similar products have been withdrawn from stock. All orders will continue to receive full support.
We will keep you updated as more on this emerges.

Gotta love those sensationalist editorials .
Can still get them very easily all over EU and the US and that won't change anytime soon.
EDIT: Oh god this made me laugh so much... took a while to set in...

God.. please don't post 'muggle' written articles on a ps3 hacking website.
that article made me want to barf.
They may have stopped the sale of PS Jailbreak in Europe but they definitely won't be able to stop all those USB Flash Drives mailed (or insert other common item from China) as gifts arriving to peoples mailboxes from Hong Kong.
That was rather vomit inducing to read but made me chuckle as well
Lol yeah i had to back track on that one and read it again. Sorry can we still do Linux? no? Can we still use 3rd party controllers? no? Its funny it seems when anyone finds a flaw in a feature on a PS3 Sony cut the whole feature out. Im amazed they didnt dump blu-ray when people found those blu-ray flaws.

I say they are 2 months to late, they can stop ps3key and some big clones, but I dont think they can stop ALL the clones, its the same as torrent site, you can stop one but there will always be new ones.
And they can't stop selling teensy boards at all. FY sony.
Uh, you can still use 3rd party controllers on PS3.
IE. Bannco Fragnstein, Madcatz controllers, Intec Controllers, etc...
You just can't use unlicensed 3rd party counterfeit controllers, or controllers from a competing company. IE. Microsoft Xbox 360 controllers.
I think the best way for Sony to stop the Jailbreaking is to keep releasing new firmwares with features people want, like 3D blu-ray movies and lossless audio. And then have new software require the updated firmware, like for the new medal of honor game. So you make updating more valuable than staying on old firmware.
What the hell did I just read?

Oh, I'm sorry, Sony (ie. your feudal overlord) took that feature from you to 'prevent' (ie. too lazy to even want to fix a buffer overflow - no, let's just SCRAP/DELETE the entire USB HID functionality) any future exploits from happening through the USB ports.
Ahahahahaahahahahahahaha.... I so wish they can get an exploit going through the Bluray movie playback feature - I can't wait to see these 'loyal' PS3 fans' faces when Sony will instantly overnight remove movie playback features.
Hey, this is what you get when you give a company like Sony fair play to pull/remove any feature they wish from your box. These 'loyal PS3 fans' don't get that they are not in the same boat as Mr. Kaz Hirai or Howard Stringer - as a consumer/customer, they should DEMAND stuff from their platform holder, not being like a feudal serf and beg for scraps from their master's table.
It's hilarious where being a sycophantic suckup/fanboy to a feudal company gets you - the more they're screwed over, the more they like it.
