143w ago - Today what appears to be another PS JailBreak clone dubbed PS3Stinger has arrived according to PuppetMaster via PSX-Scene (linked above).
While the official Web site PS3Stinger.com isn't live yet, a Twitter page has been setup, and some preliminary details on this PS3 modchip are available below, to quote:
"The announcer Tech1000 states that it's: Just for reference and will change next week once the pcb's are ready.
I sent in an email earlier today requesting some more information and got the following response:
Thanks for the mail, Price depends on quantity 50-100 pieces is Euro35 stock ready to ship around 15th Sept (Pcb's ready next week so maybe a bit sooner). Exactly the same as the jailbreak as its a direct clone.
Difference with dealing with us is fast replies and we won't screw our customers on price, Also can do fast overnight shipping via Fedex to the US.
Some of the guys we are dealing with already are allsystemsgo.nl /Consolepro.nl and loads of the UK sellers including wii-chip.co.uk/ 360upgrades.co.uk so lots of people to vouch that we are legit as well.

If its a direct clone then I would expect you could also use the PS Jailbreak's firmware/updates on it.
I agree with nearly everyone. Will wait for a cheaper release. The more clones the cheaper it will be. If it does go down to $15 then I'll get 2 but at $150 I won't even get one.
Isn't it a hardware USB dongle? That means there will be NO free software version so why are people still asking for it?
It's just like the PSP battery. There is no software version. You still need the hardware battery even if it is software modded, its still a piece if hardware.
