I found this quite interesting:
SOURCE (C+P: http://www.pcworld.com/article/203788/hackers_claim_jailbreak_victory_with_playstation_3_usb_key.html?tk=hp_new
In the four years since Sony's PlayStation 3 has been with us, it's never been hacked to play pirated games--until now, that is, if claims by hacker group PSJailbreak prove true.
The group, reportedly operating from China or Hong Kong, claims it's on the verge of releasing a USB dongle (they're implying it's a 'jailbreak' tool) that lets you play pirated as well as homemade games on a retail PS3 by converting it into a "debug" unit, a special version of the PS3 used by developers and others to access non-retail versions of games.
The dongle comes loaded with software that the hackers claim will let players save games to the PS3's hard drive. All one has to do to get it working, they say, is insert the dongle into the PS3 and boot up.
The hackers also claim the dongle is capable of blocking Sony's mandatory firmware updates, which might otherwise disable the hack, or "brick" (render unusable) the system.
How 'on the verge' are we talking? Off the edge, apparently. Australia-based OzModChips says it's accepting pre-orders for the dongle now. The site lists the PS JailBreak dongle for $169.99 and discounts it if purchased in quantities of two or more.
"Order worlds [sic] first PS3 modchip here," reads a headline on OMC's homepage, while at the bottom, a post dated August 19 says "Hello ps3 fans... We are currently testing out the world [sic] first Ps3 modchip. Stay tuned for more info."
The group released a video on Wednesday purporting to show the USB hack in use.
It looks preety legit to me. I hope it is. Although i am not sure whether i will be willing to download a 40gb bluray game lol.
What do you guys think of this?
