Graf is a very dedicated man, he's risking his OWN skin in such a serious situation. True to his word, he releases this. Props to him for believing in what he does.
I used to be a huge Sony supporter. One thing is making sure your integrity as a corporation stays intact and that it doesn't become compromised. But this is getting out of hand. Look at Geohot for example, he's being pointed as the big 'culprit' to the cheating and such going on in the PS3. When infact, it's not that widespread and its only to those games that aren't tight on security in the first place. How many games have truly been hacked?
Seriously. All I usually hear about is the CoD series, and thats maybe because it's been the same damn thing ever since CoD 4. They've done little to change the structure of the game, hence why the hacking is so widespread in PC, 360, and PS3 for such game. If it wasn't for Geohot, hell, I wouldn't even own an iPhone right now.
Much respect to all the devs that make this possible, hope this ends well for all the ones involved.
Yeah, just look at our cream-of-the-crop representative democracies. Jealous yet? Where your private property can be taken at any time by the goons of the State for the sake of a fictional entity's (i.e. a "corporation's") "intellectual property rights." I think I'll download extra stuff today to continue eroding the absurd notion of patenting and monopolizing ideas.
Sony react so badly - makes you wonder what they're so scared of people finding. Maybe some little company owns patented interlectual property that sony have themselves stolen and they're terrified of the pending court cases against themselves.
Well, I can't think of any other (valid!) reason for such over the top reactions. Interesting to see how this plays out.
Feel sorry for Graf - he's gonna be in a hole heap o' ... for releasing his stuff! (That is of course assuming they can prove it was him / they don't get sued in the meantime)
The German police were temps on quadruple training pay, or their new games room has been redecorated. I wonder how much the Germans sold their own out, when I believe they have no reason other than back handers, to the whale killing Japs, and dose his computer stay in Germany, or go to Japan?
Sony probably thought if they struck fast enough, they could get the files before Graf had a chance to distribute them into the Internet. Guess they're wrong again! On another note, the first link is already down.
