We're talking illegal wares/applications here. Since when do laws stop humanity from doing what they want?

I'm also laughing at the bunch of people now screaming "Piracy will ruin the PS3!" (not here, but on other forums). Afaik we PS3 users are the ONLY gamers who pay for every PS3 game ever sold on this planet. No PS3 gamer has ever pirated a game (soon of course!).

Wii, 360, DS, PC, etc... all are terribly ridden by piracy for years now. Why do they still exist? Because piracy may be a problem, but it's not as big of a problem as the media would like us to think.

1st off, we now know for sure this thing works... Its already in hands of people that can and will reverse it... Those clone companies I would believe them to be the backup plan for ps3jailbreak.. How else would they have gotten the needed info on just about the same day.. China will flood the market now no worries.

I've seen this scenario, 10 times over with the FTA (Free to Air) market.. They get busted but days after clones and new companies pop up all over the place..

Boss, is this it for the chances of a free PSJailbreak release, or are devs currently in control of one and reversing it? This isn't surprising news, but it still saddens me =[
