Video: PS3 Hacker GeoHot Dares Sony to Exhibit Rapper Parody


166w ago - Another update from PS3 hacker GeoHot's site, this time with a parody video which has received over 1 million views thus far for The Light It Up Contest featuring GeoHot rapping and daring Sony to exhibit it.

Download: geohotlightsitup.mp3

Pictured below, if you check the properties of the MP3 download you will notice what appear to be PS3 file offsets despite some speculating they may be 3.56 Keys.

The video is below, and from his page:

I am subject to the TRO
But they ain't copping my computers
The dongle key tweet was mad funny... can't link to it

Apparently linking to the official PlayStation Blog, referred to as "a site", is a desire to continue circumventing (see this page 4,11)

I'm amazed they would actually bring that up and not be laughed out of court... free speech is dead
It clearly was to parody (protected speech) the ridiculousness of the campaign to censor the internet
Can anyone really not find the metldr key?

geohot lights it up

I have a feeling that a LOT of peoples psn accounts are now on the vege of being banned. Realized this last night, but if someone looked at geohot's blog, and then played online, and once sony gets the information out of google, they are going to start banning people.
all they are going to do is cross-reference the IP addy's in their psn records with the ones from the blog. Any matches and guarantee, those people will be banned.

Maybe people are just getting paranoid, maybe not. Some people don't mind the big corporations knowing what they do online. It's a basic civil liberty. Would you want the government to put a tap on your phone, because you could be a terrorist?

Indeed. Privacy is a right in most contries .. but apparently not in US. This whole thing is a complete travesty and clearly shows that justice in the US belongs (no offence) to the ones with enough money. This would never had happened in Europe. Its all about priority tho.

In most european contries you are allowed to play 1 or more backups of games/movies/music you own (so you can easy play a backup in your car/other house). Priority is obviously quite low .. because who really get hurt?

But in european contries if you even accidentally sneeze the word "terrorist" .. you will find yourself in jail for upto 48 hours without ANY proof whatsoever (while they raid your home for possible proof). Priority is obviously quite high .. because people do actually get hurt if it isnt done.

Hey Sony, guess what. I'm renting gamez to your console, not buying them!

Not gonna buy crap of this company whatever anymore, if my money goes anywhere then greedy Microsoft can have them.

Thanks for buying out the HDDVD market, thanks for everything Sony, messing up the industry. Oh hey, you introduce 3D, that's great does that mean I can just connect my nVidia Sterioscopic 3D kit and enjoy? NO! I have to buy your TVs, which has always been crap. Stop making TVs! Then I need your fancy glasses of paper.

Sony this is going outta hand, and if.. I mean, slow down.. something is gonna hit you in the face pretty soon.

Back to computer gaming people, at least we can do whatever we want, buy and configure whatever powerful hardware we want. Don't buy a damn PS3; means their third year on minus in revenue.

I mean, before I was like supporting you guys, making all these titles; as all the "Sony" logoed games was like "Wooow" (Heavy Rain, Uncharted series, GT series, Ratchet & Clank, Metal Gear Solid...)

What I'm trying to tell is: Don't give money to maniacs. I'm refreshing and downloading the jailbreak, come and get me!

That's what I stated in my last post. That's all this is about. People are getting paranoid for nothing. Sony is just trying to help their case and nothing more with this particular situation.
Maybe people are just getting paranoid, maybe not. Some people don't mind the big corporations knowing what they do online. It's a basic civil liberty. Would you want the government to put a tap on your phone, because you could be a terrorist?

I know thats a little extreme, but it's not THAT far from what we're dealing with. What we have is a corporation that will do absolutely anything to win. Guess what Sony. Your messing with the wrong bull. Robin Williams said it best; "It's not big brother you have to worry about anymore, it's little snitch.'

Well guess what Sony, the internet is full of 'little snitches', and especially with the LG claim that you doing exactly the same frigging thing your accusing all of us of doing when we run homebrew. All those snitches (especially this one) will be watching your EVERY move VERY closely.

'Those who live in glass houses, probably shouldn't throw stones.'
