187w 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 [Register or Login to view links] featuring GeoHot rapping and daring Sony to exhibit it.

Download: [Register or Login to view links]

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

this part explains a lot: "Sony's reasons for requesting such a wide-reaching subpoena are two fold: First, they want to show how pervasive Hotz's PS3 jailbreak is. And second, they want to provide evidence that a large number of people in northern California downloaded the jailbreak file, which would help justify them suing Hotz in San Francisco rather his home-state of New Jersey."

I don't think they're doing anything to the people that downloaded the file, just proving a point in the case to help win...

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.

The debate of piracy is always a funny thing. Most people would use these jailbreaking methods to pirate games. So what drives people to piracy. It's the cost! Here in Australia, games are $100AUD - which due to the aussie dollar doing so well is the same as the US dollar. Yet games are so expensive. Music CD and movies DVD/BluRay can be brought for under $20 dollars [even less].

I'm a musician, have a band too, and know the costs of production in a recording studio - looking at $1000 AUD dollars a day just to record here in Melbourne (and at a semi pro studio). So you can imagine a big band spending close to a million dollars recording and producing a CD. Some band's producer fees can run up to a quarter of a million dollars - add promotion, mastering, mixing, etc and the costs rise. Yet the cost of a CD is $20 AUD sometimes less.

A movie maker has the same problems. Avatar cost 500 million to make - yeah sure James Cameron can afford it, but once out of cinemas, the cost of buying it from the local JB Hi Fi is again $20 AUD. Blu ray more like $40 AUD or so.

Game developer can have the same costs. Killzone 2 believed to have cost around 50 million USD to make over the 4 years. I'm hearing too that the mass costs of promotion and marketing is extreme for a video game. Look at Duke Nukem - that costs millions of marketing. Yet those costs are $80 - 100AUD

I can understand the differences among the different media, but still the costs of games can be 5 times the price verses same media [Yes true that blu-ray vs cd or dvd, yet the Xbox360 media is still DVD9 - same as dvd movies]. The band that I'm in got 500 CD made - they cost us $2.50 to make [that cover, disc with coloured printing - everything] - so you can imagine the cost of cds are.

Depending on the developer and the situation - Games developers get a certain amount of money to produce and make the game. Yet it's the publisher and big company that makes a lot of money. Heck look at the whole EA crap out with re-having to purchase an online code when buying second hand games. Greed!

If the price of games were that of $20 AUD then piracy would take a fall. Today I just brought Left For Dead 2 for $19 [though granted it was pre-owned but looks in great condition], and Kameo for $9. Paying $108 for Call of Duty black ops is so over the top. Even second hand you're looking at $70 due to being a popular title

Usual argument {Enjoyment} - I get more enjoyment out of a game ie Online play, DLC, MMO etc. But in saying that I also get enjoyment out of listening to the new 'Opeth' or 'Her Tortured Embrace' album and listening to said records more than once. Same with movies, same with books, same with other online media or personal vices.

In the end it's greed that rears its ugly head. Greed from the major companies, greed from people like you and me.

In some countries like mine its not illegal to BACKUP a dvd or game its illegal to break COPY PROTECTION.

So what if a disc has no copy protection?

Then what about copy protected DVD's, it is legal to backup DVD's for personal use, in some countries around in Europe: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ripping#Other_Countries
