Rumor: Sony Recruiting PS3 Hackers to Combat Console Piracy

Sponsored Links
194w ago - A few weeks back we reported that Sony was hiring IP investigators as part of forming a PS3 anti-piracy program, and today Dutch site PSX-Sense (linked above) reports that they may also be recruiting PlayStation 3 hackers as well.

According to rumor, Sarah McRae [Register or Login to view links] Koushik Dutta regarding a Software Engineer position that is opening at SCEA.

To quote, roughly translated: Something we wouldn't expect from Sony; they are recruiting hackers for a job at SCEA. A hacker named Koush got an e-mail, which is 100% real, from Sarah McRae which works onsite at the Talent Acquisition department.

He had been asked for a job at the R&D Departmen at Sony, we're sure Koushik isn't the only hacker which has been contacted by Sony. As a proof Koush posted a screenshot of the e-mail.

A very fair reply, maybe its Geohot that should be recruiting?

no hacker with a sense of honor would work for Sony given how they are treating hackers right now.

that said Sony should have hired Geohot instead of suing him, then Sony would have Won, Geohot would have won, and we would have won...
