Farewell PSJailbreak! after only weeks of the PSJailbreak hack breakthrough, Sony wipes the floor with the PSJailbreak Flash drives and puts the hacker’s business, out of business. What are your thoughts on Sony’s response time and actions? Did they handle this accordingly. Could they have prevented this? How long till we see another PS3 hack? One thing is for sure, Sony crushed the PSJailbreak idea to the ground, very quick.
History of PSJailbreak:
The Beginning: The PS3 is now the Original Xbox
The War: PSJailbreak Dealers send out warning
Sony’s Response: Sony Crushes PSJailbreak’s Heart
And, now you are reading the Aftermath:
Sony has officially put most PSJailbreak dealers out of business. After only weeks of PSJailbreaks announcements, Sony has punished the dealers and their PSJailbreak business. Today Sony unleashed a Labor day surprise with firmware update 3.42 which could very well be the nail to coffin to any PSJailbreak PS3 trying to get on the PSN.
I honestly think that Sony did a great job with this. I did not expect Sony to move as quickly as they did. For a second, I was really starting to believe that Sony released this hack on purpose to help console sales. All the ingredients and sign pointed to that. While the PSJailbreak hack still works and could easily be used on PS3′s near a PSjailbreak dealer, most PS3′s remain secured.
Sony’s quick response has clearly secured the PS3 for now, but how long till a new PSJailbreak hits the wild?
