    Sony ban extended on PS3 'jailbreak' hack

    by Ben Grubb



    The Federal Court has extended an injunction preventing three Australian distributors from selling a world-first hack that allows Sony PlayStation 3 owners to run pirated games on the console.

    The Australian online retailers OzModChips.com, Quantronics.com.au and Modsupplier.com, which sell the hardware hacks for all of the major games consoles, have been blocked by the Federal Court from selling the PS Jailbreak, described as the "world's first PS3 mod chip".

    The case was first brought against the distributors last Friday and the injunction has been further extended until this Friday. It was initially in place until today, where the court was to hear Sony seek a permanent ban on the device.

    Lawyers for Sony, Blake Dawson, were instructed not to comment to media on the case today.

    A Modsupplier.com employee said he was instructed to offer "no comment" to media, whereas OzModChips.com instructed that an email support ticket be sent to its manager. Quantronics.com.au's telephone number was engaged when a call for comment was attempted.

    The judge who first heard the matter, Justice Dodds-Streeton, will again hear it this Friday. Justice Kenny heard it today and ordered that the orders that were previously made by Justice Dodds-Streeton be continued until Friday, when the case would go back before that judge.

    Mr. Grubb seems to have an agenda, when he puts forth the above statement. The legitimate usage of this product has nothing to do with piracy; perhaps someone will remind him of that fact. So much for "unbiased" news, or at least competent news makers.

    Sony is already late. The ps3 dongle has been cloned and the code is avaliable for anyone to download. A regular USB wont work with the code, but you can use other programable usb dongles to do the job. Today the first ISO converter has been released and now the homebrew door is wide open. I dont own a ps3 myself, but is quite fun to watch how this is growing.

    Nice to know. Homebrew for ps3 would result in pure chaos.

    I almost bought a PS3, until I found out sony blocked me from playing my PSX and PS2 games on it, when this dongle supports homebrew properly and will actually play homebrew and capable of backwards compatibility, I will then purchase a PS3 and a homebrew dongle.
