The PS3 Has Finally Been Hacked



No I'm not going to give out links, but at 90, it's a beast of a price to play copied games. Hoping that Sony can get on top of this and ban people from PSN as soon as they detect it and not in waves. This is a lot bigger than the XBox 360 modding because it allows you to run your own code and in my eyes, that's why it's exciting and dangerous at the same time.

The current Modern Warfare hacks, for instance, are done by modifying save files. What if someone could modify the actual game code and take it online? Well, it will be like those ridiculous (but fun) COD4 Wii hacks where everyone gets a rocket launching machine gun. That's the dnagerous bit. But free to run my own code? Or code of others that utilises all the parts of the PS3's awesome power? Not in some closed off Linux enviroment, but do whatever I like with the hardware that Sony would never let you do

Wait a while for the USB dongle to be cloned and cheap, get a cheap, banned from PSN PS3 from EBay and play with the stupid amounts of power the machine has fully. If the original XBox has taught us anything, it's that the development community can shine. XBox Media Player beats the pants off of anything that Sony and MS have put out on their machines and has become one of the most fully-featured media players you can get on a PC.

Maybe it's just me, but the homebrew scenes in consoles have been amazing, so I'm fully looking forward to what small devs working for free can achieve yet again.
