    I blame the marketing prat that declared it unhackable, that was issuing a challenge to every hacker out there. I'm surprised Apple didn't track him down legally, given how they've treated web gossip sources in the past.

    And this just where the hardware is (supposed) to be financed by the price of the thing.
    Once it's hackable I'd buy one!

    That really did take a while and I read this on the BBC website today. I think he also said that he hadn't quite perfected it and couldn't hack the full system....yet.

    It will probably only work on the old one and not on the Slim. :S

    It probably needs to be heavily refined if it ever wants to see any use. Not many people are going to rip apart their PS3 to try it out. It also depends on how dangerous this is, 50% console destruction rate?

    What makes you think sony decided to change their security system on the Slim? No one had hacked the regular one. If it's not broke...

    LOL! funniest thing I've read today! plus it seems sadly true.
    ok enough ripping on Microshaft's console.

    My take is that I get a console to play games on and that's about it so I probably wouldn't use the hack. I actually buy the games I like to play :-o

    Different root password? Different controllers? There are hundred things sony couldve changed when they designed the slim. It is after all built with die shrinked chips so things have to have changed (e.g. ability to install other os like linux)

    Well, they took their time, but it was eventually inevitable. As already pointed out, simply calling it "unhackable" was a challenge to hackers. Thought it seems far from being a practical implementation at the moment.

    It'll be interesting to see Sony's response to this.

    Ah perfect timing! Was gonna buy a PS3 for FFXIII (I am not listening to leona lewis) so being able to crack it would be a very nice bonus! :D

    I see there being homebrew for emulating all my favourite old consoles again aswell as hopefully the PS2 :thumb:
