gahh, i'll tell you why the PS3 isn't hacked.

Because the PS3 is providing homebrew access with a sandbox environment. Because the environment is open to the homebrew scene their is no serious efforts by the homebrew scene to find exploits. There maybe a few people here and their, but overall custom code runs on the PS3 and that's the first and primary element homebrewers want and need.

The Wii and 360 however as usual try too block EVERYTHING. The harder you hold the more will slip through your hands.

And to add a correction the Wii exploit that started homebrew wasn't in the drive. It was in strcmp() that was executed from a TP savegame when playing TP.

 

C?!.

thats lame, but also the seven SPU it's uses for OS and checks everything that othe spu do.



I think the price is certainly a factor. Perhaps the unreliability of the 360 helped some modders in meddling around as they probably picked up a lot of consoles dirt cheap that were RROD in the consoles early lifespan and fixed them. Both the Wii and 360 were pretty much hacked for piracy due to flaws not fixed in their security system in the last generation. Getting the 360 to run homebrew code is still above the ability of most of last generations previous modders.

Finally the PS3 I think did have some attention diverted from the cause by the ability to run Linux without any form of hack from the start. It was probably one of the more clever things Sony did on the PS3 and they should be applauded for it. Even if the PS3 is hacked, piracy will not be as big as on the other two consoles due to Bluray replication costs. That is of course assuming some clever individual doesn't figure out how to run a game from the HDD (probably impossible given Sony's security).

Interesting article even if it was dumbed down.



Its media, Xbox disks are 2 bucks each. Blu-ray 10+ and the burners are rare. That's pretty much it.

I mostly play RTS and Moba style games now adays as well as ALOT of benchmarking. I do play other games however such as the witcher 3 and Crysis 3, and recently Ashes of the Singularity. I love gaming on the cutting edge and refuse to accept any compromises. Proud member of the Glorious PC Gaming Master Race. Long Live SHIO!!!!

Because you can install Linux to PS3 from the main menu, Linux hackers are busy optimizing linux kernel for PS3, not hacking it. :P

sony ftw TEH CELL IS 2 STRONG



You should be beaten, burned to ashes then someone should throw your ashes from a plane

Hacked from what angle? If it means to enable pirating, well Blu-Ray is a big block for that. If it means to be modified to allow homebrew stuff, Sony allowed you to install Linux on the machine. End result is that people are likely installing Linux and playing there. Also, there is a cost factor. It is less expensive to get a Wii or 360, or even PSP and tinker around the insides.
