OMG HACKZOR! Has the PS3 been Hacked?

1 min read


Piracy is rife on just about every platform imaginable. Torrent searches will turn up illegal copies of games for PC, PSP, Xbox 360, DS, Wii and even the IPhone. The only current system that’s been impervious thus far has been Sony’s PS3 – but that may be set to change, as hackers have claimed success in playing copied games on the system.

The hack – a long and convoluted process, only works on older PS3’s that have the ability to load Linux – and currently only boots Killzone 2, PES 2008 and Burnout Paradise. While some report the exploit working, it has been greeted with scepticism from the hacking community, not least because it’s such a hackneyed method. The general consensus at the moment is that this is fake – and we certainly hope that’s the case.

Even if this is real, it’s ridiculously impractical and honestly not worth the bother – but it may lead to hackers opening the doors on PS3 piracy completely.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
