PS3 Hack, No Comment

Sony's dismissed stories of the 'PSJailbreak' PS3 hack as "rumour and speculation".

Reports over the weekend suggested that a successful PlayStation 3 hack had been cloned and made available via USB.

The 'modchip' supposedly contains software allowing users to copy games to the hard drive and play backup games.

Earlier today it was reported that Sony could actually detect users of the hack and issue bans to those awash with guilt.

But Sony has now started to issue its standard 'no comment' equivalent of, "we don't comment on rumour and speculation."

We're not sure which part exactly Sony is suggesting is rumour - as it all looks pretty real to us.

Then again, we wouldn't be surprised if the platform holder's got a trick up its sleeve to crush the new-found threat.


  1. I read somewhere that the manufacturer claims the device "turns the PS3 into a dev unit". They said that after people pointed out that the videos of the device in action showed a dev unit PS3. Dev units do not have any protection for playing, ahem, backups. Anyway, if this is true it's probably easy enough for them to detect who's logging in to PSN with a dev unit and ban them. Hey, if Microsoft could do it!...

  2. lots of clones are appearing as well - like this one!

  3. -heh- that website is HongKong based so could be legit, i've signed up with them, for research purposes :)

    BUT anyone who buys one of these now is a mentalist, i can see Sony dev's polishing the banhammer and preparing a new FW update as i type.

    be interesting to see where this story goes.

  4. contacted X3Jailbreak owners to see if they'd like us to make them some promotional videos for their product, provided they send us one for gratis mind.
