Except that the codes have spread around the net like wildfire and suing them won't do anything since everything you need is on megaupload now too.

quote Sony
"Unless this court enjoins defendants' unlawful conduct, hackers will succeed in their attempts to ensure that pirated software can be run on the PS3 system, resulting in the destruction of SCEA's business."
Seriously...?

This article is bullshit. Fail0verflow and geohotz simply made the console open as it should be anyway. I can write my own code for my computer, why can't I on my ps3? Beyond that both fail0verflow and geohotz have came out and said that they do not support piracy, they also look down upon it. They simply want to be able to use the computer they bought to run the programs they want it to.

Sure they do! It's more likely they don't give a shit at all!

Mannnn I hope people don't start running in-game online cheats.

It's not Fail0verflow's fault that Sony made a random_number() function that always returns 4.

Michael Faraday, that sounds plausible I will then become a diplomat at the UN when that "Cyber WWIII" begins...

P.S. I think SCEA will use every mean necessary to take hackers down just for the protection and sustainability of its PlayStation 3 console...This piracy battle will be going on for as long as PlayStation consoles exist...

the opinions about this whole situation differs per person that's a common fact, although i used to pirate games on a small scale in the past i have to admitt my support is on sony's side with this one.
the reason why i say this is because hacks like this arn't made to aid people, it's because some others just enjoy destroying other people's work too much, just so they can say, look! i destroyed that.
it may look all fun and joy in the beginning but in the end it'll f uck us all that's what makes these sort of situations so difficult.

now, sony can't stop the cracks from spreading anymore that's a solid fact but this whole suing process seems as an attempt to slow down the hackers, maybe it'll give them some time to think of some solutions i don't know.

It's not really going to slow down the process either. You know how late Sony found out about this? It isn't going to do anything.

Not really a big deal either, just means the PS3 is on pretty much the same level as the 360. If you go on PSN or online with a hacked PS3 you're probably going to get banned. Don't really know why some people are crying like this is the end of the world, it didn't ruin the Xbox or the Wii.
