    The latest round of PSX-SCENE's Wikileaks-esque court documents reveal that Sony is expanding it's case beyond Geohot to include other well-known PS3 hackers. They are planning to subpoena various internet sites, including PSX-SCENE, YouTube, Twitter, PayPal and Slashdot in an attempt to locate new defendants such as Cantero, Peter, Bushing, Segher, hermesEOL, kmeaw, Waninkoko, grafchokolo and kakaroto.

    What's the point, you take one down and three more will appear to revolt, and they will be pissed.
    Damaging more than helping themselves.

    They really don't want homebrew and backups do they?

    I swear if anything happens to Waninkoko or hermes (or any of the other hackers), I don't think I'll be able to support Sony anymore.

    After the latest brickstravaganza, I was under the impression that Waninkoko was on Sony's side [​IMG]

    This strikes me as really immature on Sony's part.

    I love how Sony is so aggressive towards hackers haha. It really shows that Sony cannot evade the whole CFW fiasco so they have to head to the root of all of it and attack them individually.

    Man, Sony is redunculas xD

    Yeah, because letting the console open for everything is the right asnwer. Because protecting their property and making sure that the companies will still make games for them is wrong, right?

    I don't think they can ban Geohot and other hackers from the internet.

    not without the help of ACTA and COICA anyway (which I'm sure they support)

    They could call all three strikes at once [​IMG]

    The odds of winning judgments in most of these international lawsuits is pretty low. However, the fear and intimidation created by this lawsuit-spamming will probably be effective in at least slowing down the hacker community's progress.

    They'll do that too. [​IMG]
