PS3 root key already equals piracy

Screenshot shows that it is possible to do
Sony is wrestling with the security breach that has seen the root key for the PlayStation 3 published, and while that alone didn’t equal piracy a new screenshot that is making the rounds does indeed show that this now is possible.

The video shows a pirated copy of Castlevania that is loaded on the internal hard drive and ready to play. The good news, if there is any, is that taking a PS3 disc and making an image that is downloadable is quite complex. The lack of tools to handle this process at the moment is also a good thing, as apparently most of this has to be done by hand. This should give Sony some time to look at their options to deal with the issue.

So far, Sony has had little comment about the PS3 root key being published, other than to say that they were aware of the issue and they planned to patch the system to deal with the issue. Of course, beyond this there is little known of what Sony’s strategy might be to deal with the problems.

Hackers are insisting that short of a hardware redesign the genie is out of the bottle, so to speak, and it will be pretty much impossible for Sony to effectively create a patch to deal with this issue.
