    If what I think is true (that this works totally outside the firmware) that means that all current PS3 systems will be fully hackable now and forever, and Sony will have to make a totally new hardware revision in order to stop future piracy (as they won't be able to stop current devices without also harming legit users).

    Wow.

    yea, a new hardware revision should be in order.. but then again they might have something up there sleeves.

    and it's crazy, i guess geohot feels pretty dumb right now.

    The corner in that dark alley.
    Holy. Shit. This is probably the best PS3 news in a while, and I'm hoping this won't get patched for quite some time! If a hardware revision is needed, well, then Sony's screwed. Hopefully, the next piece in the PS3 Scene is that the PSGroove will become undetectable by Sony! I'm gonna wait to use Groove until that though...

    EDIT: Wait, if the console is downgraded, is it detectable by Sony when you go online? Won't they just ban you or something (assuming of course that they normally DO ban you?

    Nice. I'm glad to see this console hacked. I'm curious to how Sony will handle the situation.

    Sony's been doing the standard "just check for the latest firmware" deal online, they have NOT banned anybody, so nobody knows what they check for yet.

    so, it is now confirmed that it will work on firmware's higher than 3.41?
    edit: i see, the article kind of hints it, but no word on it yet?
    edit: seems to be confirmed by a few people yesterday.

    I wouldn't upgrade to anything above 3.41 just because of this news, at least not yet...
    ... not until there is a fully functioning method available for free
