Damn, this is getting serious.. They should award him for it, and make improvements in an update or in their system in general.

Is leaving the country while being tried for something like this illegal?

Serves him right. I wouldn't really have a problem if he was anonymous and just helped the PS3-hacking scene, but the fact that he used a name online to release it just proves he's an attention whore.

If he signs off on a representative it should be fine for him to leave the country; Then again I don't know if he's allowed that privilege. Otherwise he's required to show up to the court dates.

hmm according to these guys he's just on vacation and hasn't fled the country.

also geohots blog not that it says anything about going to South America.

either way, leaving the country while you're dealing with a court case doesn't sound like a good idea to me.

Sony is going too far!
Geohot is a young adult of 21 years old and what he did should be recognized as pure hacking, he is a pure genius!

I'm torn on this whole mess. On one hand, there's the postmodernist in me that's all about sticking it to the man, power to the people, and all that nonsense.

But then I hate the guy for screwing with Sony's product, especially the online portion. If people pirate games and mod their own console, that's one thing, but to enable severe hacking in online play is a whole different story.

hacking the system should be legal as long as doesn't cause any multi-player problems for others and is not freely distributed so it becomes easier to pirate games.

... pirating is horrible, who should it be legal?

Really pirates don't bother me at all as long as they keep to themselves about it but it just makes me laugh when they try to justify the act.

Neoseeker isn't working for Sony...This is an article, which involves two parties. Most reports on this mention that he's running, whilst, as more evidence is presented, he's simply on vacation.

The media likes to sway things a certain way and watch the reactions, though sometimes there are cases where even they don't have the whole story.

That's why we're framing the "fleeing" statement as something from Sony's point of view in the headline in the first place, but it certainly couldn't hurt to make that clearer in the article itself!
