i really hope Sony adds a new line to their DRM, and never mentions it, in base firmware that newer games understand that will allow them to only work on official firmware updates.

I agree 100%


I 72.4% disagree. Besides the genie's out of the bottle now, ain't no putting it back. Sony puts some sneaky DRM in, geohot will know about it about 5 minutes after the first person with CFW tries to play a new release game. 1 week later it'll be bypassed. The joke, as always, will be on Sony.

I don't understand why he's putting so much effort into keeping an exploit around that isn't really capable of doing anything

I guess like Ebert and video games, you just don't get it.


What's there to get?  It's a wasted effort and a sinking ship (just like the law suit).  I can't imagine there are that many left holding out for these updates.  I, too, don't understand why he's putting so much effort into keeping an exploit around that isn't really capable of doing anything.

That is, unless he is doing it out of guilt for causing this whole mess to begin with... but I highly doubt that.

I'd get a good laugh out of it.

Granted, some people wouldn't, but that would just make it more hilarious to me. :D

I hope you all enjoy lower software sales due to people that refuse to take it in the ass from Sony. Im not buying another PS3 game until this whole CFW is figured out and there are many old PS3 owners that are doing the same.



Getting an XBOX One for me is like being in a bad relationship but staying together because we have kids. XBone we have 20000+ achievement points, 2+ years of XBL Gold and 20000+ MS points. I think its best we stay together if only for the MS points.

Nintendo Treehouse is what happens when a publisher is confident and proud of its games and doesn't need to show CGI lies for five minutes.

why would there be lower software sales when the vast majority dont care about otheros? frankly i figure the majority of otheros users want to pirate their games anyways then buy legitly. So frankly, who cares?

 

@binary - even if he figures it out, mattering Sony's implementation he might not have an easy time replicating it.

edit:  Especially if Sony did it right and made it a two part firmware. First part is installed viva normal firmware, second from game disc. So if your console has CFW, the game software either A. refuses to run, or B. Install the full firmware installation removing the custom firmware and installing official firmware. I'd really hope they went with B myself.

Lower software sales? A few angry geeks on the internet aren't going to have any noticeable impact. Ssj12 is right in saying most of the people who feel that way probably didn't want to buy games legally in the first place

i wanted to buy games legally while using the other os that i paid for.

by the way this is confirmed fake, just another spammer, the person above him actually posted an image of all the posts under him, it wasn't really geohot, don't download or install whatever it is

I could care less for Other OS or any other feature that doesn't pertain to playing games, watching Blu-ray movies, and interacting with friends on your Friend's List.

Btw, don't give this guy any attention, seriously. He has been trying to hack the PS3 before Sony removed the Other OS, and now his efforts seem right? Anyway, I don't think his original intent on hacking the PS3 was so that he can create custom firmwares to those who want to keep a feature that Sony dropped....

upon further review it's just the link to the real 3.30 update.
