180w 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.."

@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...)
@proskopina: if you think the game industry will collapse, if somebody hacks the ps3, then it's time to wake up dude! Every other platform opened up by now, and see, there is still wii, x360, ds (the best selling of them all), and there are games for them! New and good games for them! (sadly the psp games were mostly just ports of other platform games and still now.. but still not died out yet)
The crappy games are caused by bad management, "milking" strategy, lack of time/resource, lack of deep testing, etc.. but NOT the piracy. As far as the official release is tied to sony quality check, and require the not so cheap SDK there won't be so crappy official games (as example big rigs ). The unofficials will likely be free so it's a good excuse even for the worst ones.
If the developers making games that sucks, they will deserve the lack of revenue. (In extreme case pirating will decrease the QUANTITY of games but not necessarily the quality.)
Pirates most likely won't buy games otherwise, or will pick just really good ones.
In addition, game rentals aren't there everywhere.
I tend to agree with you on some of your comments. Piracy will be the cause for crappy games. They also need an income for their work in order to produce games we want and would accept from a quality and fun persepctive.
However, I wouldn't mind the PS3 being hacked for the things users want. $ony does not give users what they ask for and if the PS3 is hacked, there would be an oppertunity for coders to come up with homebrew to enable the things users asked for (like other hacked consoles/platforms).
I am totally against piracy, but I suppose it is inevitable when the PS3 gets hacked. I would however choose not to purchase pirated games.
Um... He edited a .RCO file... If you know about custom PSP themes, you would know that they are made by using modified RCO files. Custom RCOs can rearrange icons, change the size, font, etc. If I remember correctly, that wasn't possible before.
And Sony didn't remove Other OS because Geohot made them believe something. They removed it because of his exploit... Which is real...
