- Update #5
: According to ArsTechnica
, GeoHot and Sony now share same charge as a result of a PS3 OtherOS class-action lawsuit.
To quote: "One of Sony's defenses is rather interesting, as the company claims that it had no way of knowing gamers who bought the hardware would want to use these functions for the life of the system, and the multiple warranties and Terms of Service all said that Sony had the right to remove functions from the hardware."
: The latest documents
reveal Judge Susan Illston
has denied Sony's request for expedited discovery, essentially meaning Sony can't send out the subpoenas to other PS3 hackers mentioned previously
, however, Wired
reports Sony is now preparing to inspect GeoHot
's hard drive.
