Looks like the PlayStation 4 has been hacked

The current consoles aren’t subject to easy, readily-available piracy like the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 were. Both of those machines could be modified to play illicit copies of games with relative ease, which had a measurable effect on the actual physical sales of video games. Either of the new consoles being cracked would be disastrous, especially for smaller markets like ours. And unfortunately, it’s starting to look like the PlayStation 4 has been cracked for piracy.

According to wololo.net, sneaky Brazilians seem to have figured out a way to clone PlayStation 4 games – taking them from an activated PS4, and making them work on other machines. This is different from account sharing, and apparently employs the use of a Raspberry Pi to clone the host machine’s NAND.

Brazilian stores are apparently selling lots of ten games for R$ 300 to R$ 400 (about $100 to $150), which is far cheaper than the $600 it would otherwise cost. Brazil, and other third world countries (like our own!) are traditionally a hotbed for game piracy, because for many, games are prohibitively expensive. The process leaves a machine, somehow, with two activated primary accounts – but allows those pirated games to run. And really, if this is all real, it’s only a matter of time until we see this happening in flea markets and other seedy dens of piracy here in South Africa. Sony is apparently already aware of this, and is issuing cease and desist letters, which leads us to believe it’s happening.

People are pirating PlayStation 4 games. It’s not a particularly easy solution, but if it requires little more than a $99 Raspberry Pi and a host PS4 loaded with digital games, it’s certainly a concern. Previously reported hacks were patched up in the latest firmware, but apparently this Brazilian hack still works.  Hopefully it’s something that Sony can patch up (though it’s implied that they can’t), and at least keep the pirates offline. Without patches, half of today’s games are barely playable – and if people aren’t paying for their games, they should at the very least have a downgraded experience.

    Out of interest, how long did it actually take them to effectively hack/crack/whatever the PS3 and Xbox 360?

      The PS3 took quite a bit longer (for a proper, useable hack) than the Xbox 360 – which took about a year.

      you go with vanilla pc hardware, you will get hacked very easy. sony will have to deal with more hacking than ever now with their ps4. popularity and use of vanilla pc hardware come at a cost… the ps3 it took 5 years to hack.

    Look… I’m probably wrong and/or naive – but if you can afford a R5k console, why are you going to cheap out on the games? I’m not saying you wouldn’t look for a bargain, but you wouldn’t spend R5k simply to exclusively pirate games to play…

      I’ve always wondered about PC gamers. Many buy rigs between R10 000 – R20 000 so that they can be mall master race this and that, but then they sit on their bollocks and wait for steam sales so that they can buy AAA games for R50 a pop

        My R10k rig has lasted about four years (I know a guy who knows a guy – so it’s really a R15k rig). And I picked up games at full retail (i.e. Total War) a ton of times over that four year period. Did I get a ton of deals? Yeah of course. 😀

            Yeah I have a problem. When the R9290X came out I pretty much got one of the first ones on our lovely shores. I am already willing to get the R9390X as well as the HTC Vive (or revive depending on who you are talking too). At least in terms of games I have no outstanding CE pre-orders that will cost me above R1000.

        we spend R10 000 – R20 000 so that we can make a saving on games.
        when you get 6-8 games in with your console, you’ve put in the same amount as the PC owners. everything after that, the PC owner is making a saving.
        PC games also dont have to worry about their games being backwards compatible.

          If I earn R1000 a month, and I save up for a year (excluding other expenses) and I buy a R12000 pc, it costs way more than saving for 5 months for a console and takes way longer.
          Now, if I bought the console, I can still buy R7000 rand worth of games (7 or 8 games) before I spent enough to buy just the pc. So please enlighten me who is really making the saving. Maybe in the really long run. (This assumes the pc gamers don’t just torrent all their games.)

            Because our hardware can evolve. Yours is stuck the way it is until a new console comes out. Consoles hold gaming back not allowing developers to go beyond the limitations of a console since its now become the primary market. Take Star Citizen for example. If it wasn’t for the versatility of PC’s it would never have been made.

            R10 000+ is a crap tonne of money, no ones disputing that.
            no one needs enlightening.
            its a want, not a need.
            someone on a budget could build a pc for the same price as a console and make an even bigger saving.

            you’re taking my comment out of context of the greater discussion.

        Many many pc gamers also buy on release. It’s the guys who build 8k rigs who wait for the sales. Which is most of them. A sale is also a nice place to pick up a game you’ve wanted but don’t feel is worth that full price.

            I’m not the best either but it doesn’t matter if your 30 vs. 30 It’s like real war. You run after the first guy and take cover as you approach the capture point. when you and five other guys shoot in the same direction at someone you’re bound to get a kill or an assist eventually

            It takes a while to learn the basics of the game. Pick a faction (NC for noobs) and when you’re level 50 or so start playing with the other factions. It’s like a new game almost and when you apply what you’ve learned with the first faction the game becomes even more fun.

            The only real lag I feel is on the 96+ vs 96+ battles (and since upgrading my CPU last year to octacore, most of the “lag” is actually gone)

        Sure Timmy, I get it but you’re not savvy enough to survive in a recovering economy. Mommy should’ve taught Timmy about the wonderful resale market, where games can be anywhere between R200 (older games) and R500 (brand spanking new games)… there’s a community like this out there…

            I agree fully, there is just nothing that compares to looking at a cupboard full of adventures that you’ve journeyed through, having those physical copies, the only issue with it is, how many have you revisited? Nowadays, I simply don’t have the time to return to old titles, not because there is an influx of good new games, but because my time for games have decreased substantially and with it the financing, so console trade ins would be my forte, just I’m mostly a PC gamer…

            last time i paid under that for a game was nearly 10 years ago.

        This is why I can’t fault using Steam. I have 250 games on Steam, none of which I have to exchange. And they cost me 10k in total. That’s 12 console games.

            Of course it includes indies. The indie games are the best value for money of them all. Most are way better than the supposedly “AAA” games too. It still means that I’m getting more bang for my buck.

          • Fnuik

            May 13, 2015 at 13:06

            Yes but that scews your logic of 12 console games = R10k. We do get the cheap indie games on consoles aswell

          • Captain JJ Browman

            May 13, 2015 at 13:07

            Even if it were 20 or 30 console games, it’s not comparable.

          • Pariah

            May 13, 2015 at 13:08

            No, 12 console games does = R10k. There is no argument. R800 – R900 for one game. Do the math. Indies however cost between R120 and R240 on release, full price – and provide as much, if not more, entertainment than the R900 console game. And if you pick them up on sale? Then you can save 75% easy.

          • Fnuik

            May 13, 2015 at 13:11

            Yes but like I said (after a quick edit) we do get those same indie games on console as well. So If you reason that console games = R8/900 per game you have to use brand new AAA pc game prices and not the cheap indie games. Because I’ve never had to buy n indie game on console for R800. Actually for my indie fix I have ps+ 🙂

          • Pariah

            May 13, 2015 at 13:14

            Well here’s the thing. A 5 year old console game, on sale, is the price of a 1 month old PC game on sale. Same game. I’ve kept a watch, retail, console, Steam etc. This is always the case. A console game on sale never goes below R150, ON SALE, even if it’s 5 years old. And for the previous gen of consoles. And yet PC games hit that no issue. I’ve picked up AAA games for R150 or R200 a month after release on PC.

          • Fnuik

            May 13, 2015 at 13:20

            True, but when buying brand new the gap is not all that bad.

            For me the choice of console or pc has nothing to do with prices. It’s all about ease of use. Personal preference above financial problems.

          • Matthew Holliday

            May 13, 2015 at 13:22

            the ease of use, when it came to consoles, made going for pc a fairly difficult decision.
            no need to worry about maintenance, upgrades etc.

            then i remembered that PC had a mouse and all other arguments flew out the window.

            It happens unfortunately, and I completely understand your point. Luckily there’s GOG for that now, but their library is still growing and since they’re not DRM a lot of publishers won’t let them sell their games.
            It’s a bit of a balance issue really. Especially if you’re forced to use a client that you don’t want to.

        No cause, and I’m not trying to be smug here, I only buy games I KNOW I’ll love first-hand (researching the game beforehand). I’ve gotten disappointing games second-hand, but by then I’m only out around R200 because bad games are cheaper in the resale market (since no one wants them).

    I saw a guy walk out of a store the other day with about R18000 worth of merch… Now before we go “That must be a lot of games” It was a PS4 with about 12 games, given, they were all brand new games. In a normal household where a wife is present, if the husband had done such a thing, he would have his necessary man bits removed by either kitchen knife or blunt spoon depending on which said wife would prefer, so in SA I can see this happening, simply because it’s so expensive…

    I agree wholeheartedly that piracy hurts the industry and playing pirated games without the ability to connect online for all the features really dampens the experience. But I think Wobbly’s article also raises questions through the true statement “Without patches, half of today’s games are barely playable”.

    Whilst I agree that devs do deserve to be paid for their work, I disagree that we should have to rely on them to fix it after I have already paid for the game. Hype, preorders and the effect that it has on game development is also damaging the industry. I just wish that more gamers would have the sense to not pay for games until the devs fix them, instead of throwing their money at them like screaming fanboys.

I just had to ensure that after each XBOX update I went and got the box patched with the latest crack for the release. It was a hassle, but I was able to play online with the “legitimate” gamers. I hope this time round, Sony is able to come up with a way to mitigate this.

      pirating takes so much effort now… updates, broken games, prepacks, full games, repacks and all digital downloads of 35-60gb…

      buy game on disk, install game, problems solved.

    I am brazilian and have never seen pirated PS4 discs myself BUT there are two options to buy pirated digital copies of PS4 games. On the first option, which pirate sellers call “primary”, you buy an activation code for around R$120 (US$40), log in the seller’s account on your PS4, download the game and play using your own account. On the second and cheaper option, which sellers call “secondary”, you buy a code for around R$50 (US$16), log in the seller’s account on your PS4, download the game but will play using the seller’s account only. On both options you can never delete the seller’s account, or the game will also be deleted.

    I’ve never tried any of those options, since I only buy original games and have all of them on discs, but I have a couple of friends who buy pirated digital copies for every game. It is a lot cheaper, if you consider an original copy of a PS4 game costing around R$210 (US$70) in Brazil, but I am totally against piracy. I rather buy 1 game a month than buy 5 and support piracy.

    also if you dont think these pirates get the patches from the digital downloads like these brazillian pirates do, your complete wrong. they have everything… only one that get end of the stick is the paying gamers that buy these unfinished games.

    Sony can make a ton of money by releasing an officially sanctioned gameshark…
    Speaking of Sony making money, if PS4 game piracy is lower than PS3, they should lower the games’ prices to compensate for the slightly higher game take-up rate (representing those douches that can afford games yet still pirate them)

I was so wrecked that my company fired me simply because i did not obliged to their terms, so they hacked into my system and phone and makes it so difficult to get any other job, i did all i could but things kept getting worse by the day that i couldn’t afford my 3 kids fees and pay light bills. I owe so many people trying to borrow money to survive because my old company couldn’t allow me get another job and they did all they could to destroy my life just for declining to amongst their evil deeds. haven’t given up i kept searching for job online when i came across the testimony of a lady called Vanessa regarding how she got the blank ATM card. Due to my present state, i had to get in touch with Hacking organization and i was told the procedures and along with their terms which i agreed to abide and i was told that the Blank card will be deliver to me without any further delay and i hold on to their words and to my greatest surprise, i received an ATM card worth $4.5million Usd.
