    Playstation 3 Hacked

    Thought people might be interested in this story:


    A US hacker who gained notoriety for unlocking Apple's iPhone as a teenager has told BBC News that he has now hacked Sony's PlayStation 3 (PS3).

    George Hotz said the hack, which could allow people to run pirated games or homemade software, took him five weeks.

    He said he was still refining the technique but intended to post full details online soon.

    The PS3 is the only games console that has not been hacked, despite being on the market for three years.
