Video: GeoHot on PS3 Hacks at Nuit Du Hack Conference in Paris


199w ago - Yesterday some videos were posted of GeoHot's iPad, iPhone, iPod coverage from Nuit Du Hack in Paris, and today we have some videos and a slideshow (PDF) of the PS3 hacks segment from the conference courtesy of malow82.

Forum user xrayglasses attended one of GeoHot's scheduled conferences, and stated the following to quote:

"He's booking for talks at 3 cons, I only got to see the one he just did in France. He's labeling his talks around PlayStation 3 security, and when he comes on basically talks about i-products for two hours with a mention of PS3 in the last 10 minutes, literally in the same details as his blog.

In videos of it on youtube, you can hear people there laughing when he integrates his ego into his talk. I don't think he realizes what a small fish he is in the RE community.

He even said publicly that he was contracted to reverse the iphone which really puts his level of intelligence into perspective considering the repercussion that has with anti-trust laws.."

Those interested can check out the GeoHot PS3 hacking videos from the Nuit Du Hack conference in Paris below!

@OGroteKoning: So you think atari was so depressed by the piracy they could just produce E.T. (for the atari 2600) ? EA is so broken down, they couldn't produce a decent NFS in the recent years? (just to name a few..)
Or if you think of muliplayer: MW2 is hacked even in ps3... (one of the best selling title so far...)
Yeah ... maybe you are right. I just thought logically that in order to get income, you need to sell games. And the more games you sell, the higher the profits. The higher the profits the better you can pay coders. The more you can spend on coders the more you can develop your own or hire better ones.

The better the coders the better the games. Logik also tells me that if games get pirated and the companies sell less games, then their income and profitablity will be less. And less income might lead to poorer games ... i'm sure you get my drift ...

My realistic analogy: This is like saying a 700 million dollar fine is going to have a negative economical or positive moral affect on an oil company..

I know small software vendor owners who recover from piracy in real time, Sony isn't just a game console maker. They could dominate just off one of their markets.

I think it's annoying how ignorant people are to logic, logistics, and sociology when it comes to most things. You can't build morals off marketing and semantics..

My guess is that it might increase sales of the ps3 if cracked.

Maybe it was his application to get into the showbizz. What's next? The George Hotz show?
My guess would be more themes like "Hello Geo!"
