    PlayStation 3 hacked again?

    Reports are emerging that the PlayStation 3 has been hacked once again in the form of a successor to the original PSJailbreak, dubbed "JB2".

    Similar to the first hack, JB2 apparently takes the form of a USB dongle that plugs directly into the PS3 and compromises the system on power-up. Videos released so far of the device in action appear to show an extended boot -up period before the XMB finally appears, featuring a number of options only available to developer consoles, allowing for the installation of unsigned code.

    The hack is curious in that unlike the older Jailbreaks, newer games cannot be run from the hard drive: instead, burned Blu-ray discs are used instead with the PS3 appearing to recognise them as legitimate pressed games. Older titles that pre-date the 3.60 update that locked out current piracy methods allegedly work from the hard drive as normal. This opens up the unpalatable suggestion that not only will the makers of JB2 make money from selling the dongles, but a black market of burned software could also emerge. Alternatively, it may simply mean that a debug console - which can work with BD-R discs - was used to create a fabricated video.

    According to sources, the dongle has undergone a small launch in Indonesia ahead of a global roll-out, with a small range of pirate games including titles like PES 2012, Driver: San Francisco, God of War Collection Volume II and FIFA 12 being made available. The notion of limited titles being available may suggest that the games are being reverse-engineered, and that only some games may work with the new hack. Alternatively, the makers may simply be releasing the latest games first in order to maximise revenues with the small window of opportunity available before Sony legal gets on the case.

    Previous "custom firmwares" could allow for the modification of game code and assets, allowing for an unfair advantage for cheats accessing the PlayStation Network. Although it appears to run new games, JB2 is apparently based on the same 3.55 firmware as older hacks, so there's a very strong possibility that PSN access will remain off limits for those running pirate software.

    It's still unconfirmed beyond all doubt whether JB2 is the real deal or not. However, the evidence piling up over the last 24 hours does suggest that Sony's successful anti-piracy measures - which kicked off with the release of Portal 2 and the 3.60 firmware just over six months ago - may have finally been overcome.

    They are really smart people to acomplish things like this but thanks to people like this we the consumers suffer even more than the company because then counter piracy measures will be taken just like those Online Passes that have companies make money off used games... I really hate people like this if you're this smart take a damn resume to a company and get a job!

    Yeah, they are... Too clever.

    They are real greedy. They get what they want, and they screw peoples life up in the process. They just see themselves. These hackers should stop staying home and breaching networks, and go outside and do something productive with their lives. They don't know that the results of the crap they do will come back and bite them in the ass eventually

    Did you just read the title? I'm guessing yes.

    While there is hardware to hack, hackers will hack. Whilst I root my Android phone to use a custom rom, I would never use illegal software/hardware with my PS3. It just ain't worth it.

    As long as it doesn't affect other people personally (like credit card info, home address, etc.), then I could care less. I just think it's getting old though with Sony getting picked on by hackers.

    People hack everything, no exceptions. Sony has been a target for hackers since forever, just remember the PS1. It's not like they are being bullied all the time anyway.

    The 360 got hacked ages ago. You can download a lot of pretty cool stuff for it thanks to that .

    Worthless? Did you know that most IT security experts are excellent hackers?!


    Hacking itself is nothing bad, if you're in to it just for fun or out of curiosity. It only becomes a problem when people try to profit from it.


    And trust me, no good hacker is worthless.




    Edit: And on the subject - I hope they won't profit from it.

    I mean - hacked consoles are nothing new, if someone wants (almost) free games - they're gonna get 'em. I myself downloaded tons of games in my "PC phase" (2002-2010) just because it was (and still is) common here.
