I am not so sure of that, I ordered mine last week and it has been stuck in Winnipeg since the day it shipped.
If it was a British company that made this then maybe UKIE wouldnt get so much involved. Doesn't really matter about the lawsuits as its out in the open the hardware and software, they just trying to put out a wildfire and its not gonna be very easy to do so.
It's worse for them with the internet sharing, $ony can't stop everything the more they do the more hackers want to fight agaisnt them. Its a shame its a double edge sword with hacking, one hand you get free games and software on the other the companies that make the games will slowly pull out. I guess they will wait on the next generation consoles.
Heh, why aren't more people just getting generic devices with the right USB controllers? I got my Teensy 2.0 (this shop ran out of Teensy++ immediately after PSGroove was released) and it works great. I know it doesn't look pretty (just a PCB) but it works.
Sony is not about to launch a campaign against hobbyist electronics-type shops. They will lose so badly it WILL be funny.
My friend in China (Shanghai) said these are all over the place if you know how to look and he doesn't even speak Chinese much.
Cant they just sell the units without the firmware? that way its no illegal (because if it was then that would mean any of the other hardware's would be to) and then you use PSGroove firmware as this will never vanish, if it needs to go underground it will.
Sad newz, PS3 Break is a good clone or maybe the original, who knows for sure?! I got mine and it's working real good, AT90USB162 inside, low prices and good support. Well, I think they will just rename it and sell again with no code.
Well i aint surpriced at all. All my UK friends complain about how "strict" its become there. ISPs monitoring internet use and any kinda of modding has become illegal. Even illegal to import consoles from other regions.
Quite clear that they are striking down on the jb because it can be used with pirated games. But what if you are a game collector like me and just want to play backups of the original games that i own, because itll save wear and tear on my originals and theyll play faster too. It isnt illegal to open up your ps3 .. im sure Sony dont want me to .. but its my console and i own it. If i want to smash open my console with a crowbar then it 100% legal. Also we dont ban crowbars totally just because it could be used to make break-ins? No we dont.
Think if Sony & UKIE used all those resources to actually try and stop REAL pirates from selling copies. World is so messed up .. you can legally buy unhealthy stuff (like booze and tobacco) because there is money in it. But if something is in the way of a bit corporation then itll get banned. Why dont we ban coat-hangers too .. they can be used to break into cars
