164w ago - Forum user Geox_10 on Elotrolado.net has discovered a PS JailBreak clone called PSGroove Hermes recently, and as a result of using his name on the PS3 modchip Spanish developer Hermes has bid the PS3 scene farewell.
The offending product is currently being sold at VolumeRates.com (linked above) under the title 'PSGroove Hermes PS Break Revolution USB Chipset Adapter for PS3 Fat and Slim' for $18.79 USD each.
Here is what Hermes had to say, to quote roughly translated:
"This should be a sick joke: Not only advantage of working sceners, if you have the nerve up to take my nickname as a reference to a product, and notice that I have nothing to do with them.
Well if that's what they want, go ahead: selling their clones and seize whatever they want, I happened to keep the riffraff and although I feel for others, here ended my contribution to the scene of PS3.

if its there choice to leave then so be it. iam gratefull for everthing they have done but maybe they will continue under a differnt name, maybe some one else will step up and take things over. who knows.
And also i guess this is a "bad" product,, like most of china stuff.. lol They produce way to cheep just to make the "big" deal?? Retards!
Anyway, everybody who is getting this stick and is not involved into the ps3 scene , will think that hermes got something todo with it. So ALL bad up to this piece of crap stick will get back to Hermes. ( Not that funny nah?)
So what you think about a PagaN Ps3 JB stick?? You would appreciate it?
Sony is clearly playing this all wrong. Rather than pushing ahead with all these expensive law suits and international JBing bans, all they have to do is join the JB network and find ways to piss off the major players. As we can see it isn't that difficult!
So far we have lost two major players in a month because they feel disrespected and/or exploited lol! Well people, this seems a little hypocrytical to me. In your spare time you do whatever you can to 'Rip Off' others, yet when someone exploits you, you start crying, throwing your soothers out the crib! all I can say is WTF! grow up!
Well... Hermes contributed alot to the scene, maybe he came back in another time when the dust settles. We have to thank him for his hard work on PS2/PS3 scene. Awesome work so far, wish you the best, Hermes!
