Sony goes after PS3 hacks

Written by Nick Farell


Going to court
Sony is going to court to target the PS JailBreak, PSFreedom and PSGroove related PS3 hacks.

According to court documents any third party who SCEA learns may be involved in the distribution or sale of the PS Jailbreak software PSGroove, OpenPSJailbreak, and PSFreedom, or who may have knowledge of the distribution or sale of this illicit software can expect a write from Sony.

PS hacker Mathieu Hervais gets a mention in one of the documents as recently proclaiming to be one of 20 individuals behind PSGroove. Of course telling the BBC you are one of about 20 hackers involved in PSGroove's development is going to get you named.

Just under a month ago Sony was granted an injunction by Australian Courts on the sale of PSJailBreak PS3 modchips, followed by blocking PS JailBreak and PS3 proxy methods with the release of the PS3 Firmware 3.42 update.

I remember back in the day, when someone would hack their N64 or PSX and send pictures to gaming magazine publishers and then be haild and admired as kings of the console world.

what about science institutes that use modified PS3 consoles for pumping raw data using the linux based programming capabilities of the console..

sony gonna sue them for not playing legally bought overpriced crap games?

the hell with sony, if i buy a ps3 and want to hack it, and they ban me from their ps3 live network.. fair enough.. but if i wanna hack it and run homebrew, or fix the crappy media center, screw them.. i paid for the hardware, like those scientists did

playing pirated games tough is ofc against the rules, but even then sony shouldnt be the one whining, the publishers of the games should (wich would be sony too, but a different part, and a different subject of court)
