Sony granted injunction against PS3 Jailbreak hack in Australia.

[newsimage]http://static.rankone.nl/images_posts/2010/08/P1XzdV.jpg[/newsimage]The PS3 USB modchip, PS Jailbreak, is apparently real – real enough, at least, for Sony to have been granted a temporary injunction from Australia’s Federal Court to block the importation and sale of the devices through the end of August.

It will certainly be interesting to see what happens next with this case.

I can definitely see how the reported 2X faster load times for PS3 games could be a tempting thing.

Thats the sort of thing that will sell these devices, and the sort of thing that annoys me about Sony, in that why couldn’t they offer this legitimately?

It saves the lazer, and if it speeds up loading where is the drawback.

Microsoft did it half way though its consoles life cycle so they cannot use the PS3 has been out for years and cannot be changed as an excuse.

Sony going the legal route means the hack has MERIT & they don’t want to do another hard-core firmware and/or hardware revision to fix the hack.

The videos on the site offering the USB hack demonstrating the games being dumped to the internal HDD / External Fat32 HDD, and then another video shows said dumped games being launched & played from said HDD’s.

Somehow, I suspect it’s very real.

On other news, apparently over 30% of aussies are pirates.

Arrrr … we’ll all have to buy direct from china then :wink:

And further news 70% of Aussies are liars or in denial. :iagree:

I thought the same thing. The legal action proves that the hack is real and Sony is scared of it.

In all fairness, my grandparents have never owned computers … or DVD players …

So, I’d guesstimate that only 69% of aussies are liars, and 30% are pirates, and probably proud of it.

Down with Ninja’s!!!
