Re: Pirate Bay Lives On
said by boog:I don't even uise the pirate bay, and I get a kick on how it keeps going and going. It's too funny. The only think that irks me is that when I'm buying movies/music it goes towards these future enforcement. I'd rather they charge me less for my products, and give up on this, and give up on DRM.
Very entertaining, indeed! I have been getting a big kick out of watching it!

Re: PS3 firmware update could kill jailbreak
said by Selenia:Lol.. Xbox deals with their piracy as well (modified dvd firmware and jtag, can result in BAN from xbox live).
Somebody should just kill Sony. Like people voting with their wallet. What if Sony next decides to yank a feature you like? Then have the audacity to make firmware updates for mods that only attempt to get back the feature they stole. Die Sony! You're the reason I purchased an XBOX 360. At first, I was happy with my ps3. Consumers need to stop letting companies walk all over them. I am proud to say I purchase not even a blank CD from Sony these days.
I'm guessing someone will figure out how to launch games (when the new ones come out, its inevilitble that they will require new firmware versions) without the firmware requirment. It could be tricky to get people on PSN, but thats still big for anyone that doesn't do online gaming.
The cats out of the bag, now that there's a hole, its going to be use and abused. The OtherOS feature on the ps3 was pretty useless, as you didn't get full access to the GPU or cell processors (which made for shitty HD video support). Hopefully someone ports XMBC to the ps3, this hack will give full acess to the ps3's GPU and power.

Re: PS3 firmware update could kill jailbreak Yeah, I hope so too, since I already have the ps3. As to your first statements, I have no problem with a company taking steps against piracy. It's part of that business model and protecting profits to a reasonable degree. I do have a problem with a company removing an advertised feature that made some peoples' decision to buy that console over another console-all for a hack that might have eventually allowed someone to get a bit deeper into the hypervisor. Mind you, that hack is was nowhere near running pirated games. If anything, it might have eventually given Linux programs access to the GPU, but probably not until the ps3's market was past prime. This was a very tiny crack in the outer shell of the armor. XBOX 360 piracy is already a reality. You see MS banning pirates, but not punishing legit users, as well. That is, at least in terms of their consoles. As to Windows, check my posting tag
