    Yeah, the title may be a tad misleading.

    I honestly don't know what to think of this.

    Nintendo lost

    A long time ago.

    Sony is still in the game, and is currently winning.

    I don't know. I'm not familiar with these kinds of things when it comes to legal issues. The acronym DMCA (which I'm kinda familiar with) pops up. Probably has something to do with that.

    Sony its your fault for making a console that is compatible to all O/S! Now you trying to put a court order on something that was your mistake in the first place?! Shame, shame...

    Wait, wasn't the exploit proven to be reversed engineered from Sony's code?

    While that is frowned upon, I don't think it would allow a company to go on a rampage like this.

    They're piracy tools.

    The laws have specific notices about "tools that have no prominent use other than piracy", in their own words. It's how companies can continue to specifically target flash carts and anything sold with the intent of allowing game backups (since it encourages piracy).

    EDIT: You'll notice no mention of the teensy++ boards and such because they have prominent uses other than piracy, instead they mention the jailbreak code you can use on them, as that's a piracy tool (software is included, check out the history of dvd decryptor for more info).

    DMCA= Digital Millenium Copyright Act. Its the same thing Nintendo used to have "unauthorized" images of Pokemon Black and White taken off various fan sites by stating that they violated "Intellectual Property".

    On nintendo's note: it doesn't make sense to go after fansites that are, in a way, promoting their product. I mean, for the ones that didn't use the rom to report their findings on the game.

    On sony's note: that's very smart. They are just now starting to make a profit off of their console, and since they would like to continue making a profit, they are going to cut the roots of the weeds before they get a chance to fully grow.

    You'd think anyone that wanted a PSJailbreak or like wise has already gotten one. I think its too late for Sony, the proverbial cat is already out of the bag.

    Yeah, and there blank development boards and phones, and what not. Sony cant ban those. There made for development and been there way before this jailbreak. They also don't mention sony or ps3 and what not.

    I don't get it, didn't Sony boast about 'Play Beyond?' for their campaign on the PS3? To me Play Beyond means you don't have always have to play PS3 games however, you can use its powerful system to install other O/S, download other software, and yes including 'jailbreak'. They didn't intentionally created the PS3 for jailbreaking but they did made it to be more than just a powerful gaming system.

    Nintendo suing pirates for softmodding the Nintendo Wii...well you got me there.

    the irony is that the hack is what will probably increase ps3 sales, at least in my country

    Nintendo may have crappy piracy protections but they still sell more than Sony
