Rumor: PSJailBreak Combatted via New PS3 Models & Encryption


Sponsored Links
230w ago - This weekend I heard from a good source (my guy in Oz Land) that Sony will be combatting the PSJailBreak with new PlayStation 3 models and PS3 HDD encryption.

This is what he said, to quote: "I heard Sony is holding back new supply of consoles, as they are removing dev and debug modes. This means you cannot get consoles easily fixed in repair centres so no more extended warranties.

THIS MEANS PSJB AND PSGROOVE WILL NO LONGER WORK ON NEW CONSOLES"

He went on to state the following, to quote: "Additionally, it is rumoured, the new 320GB PS3's will have firmware loaded onto the HDD and encrypted in a way that you cannot do a DD copy to a new HDD, so no longer can you load a heap of games to your HDD as you will be locked to the one that was loaded retail."

We have to wait and see now... M$ did the same with their consoles when we jtagged them, so I guess Sony can do the same with an update eh.

PS3 Feature List:

Has XBox Live Wannbe.

End.

Above features maybe removed under future T&C.

If they take too many features away that were initial selling points they will lose money because nobody will buy one.

It was originally marketed as more than just a console, soon enough at this rate it will be nothing but a console.

sometimes big companies make retards at a mental institution look intelligent.

Heh, this looks bad all around! says you will be locked to retail hard drive? So that will be another stripped out feature! So at this point we will have lost PS2 playback, Super Audio CD Playback (like anyone even remember or knew that), OtherOS, and these new ones (if released) will not allow you to swap out hard drives.

I can only imagine how thin the PS3 manual is now because they had pages devoted to every feature that the PS3 has including where to get the PS3 Linux distro (owners manuals make good bathroom reading material when you get bored with PlayBoy magazines!)

I should probably send that 60gb back for repairs now so I can keep it permanently offline.

Are you selling one? I'm looking for a spare PS3 to keep offline.

I assume if the newer models have 3.21+ Firmware on them they wouldn't be able to since OtherOS/Linux would not be an option any longer anyway.

Errr, that's been the behaviour of PS3 hard discs since day 1.
