Default Re: PS3 security hacked

Sony is not going to "destroy the business entirely" as they say. I know that in feudal Japan, the Samurai would kill themselves for failures, but this is not feudal Japan. This is a business, and Sony has invested way too much money into the PS3 for them to simply close up shop.

This is a hardware level hack, so I don't think any level of patching will fix it. It simply means that sony will just have to make sure that their next product is much harder to get into.

As I said, Sony did this to themselves by removing features as the system has aged. I guess they thought they were giving the users too much power by allowing Linux support and compatibility with PS2 games. Whatever... Sony should be sued for that.
