Issue with this is that this guy morally did nothing wrong.

However law is the law, vote to change the law or whatever you Americans do biggrin.gif.

His ego got in the way. He should have never said it was him.

Ironic, that's for sure.

Whatever happened to just getting a job, creating something and being paid for it? This guy spent time circumventing this process (or providing the means to circumvent this process), and now expects to be paid for his time?! Outrageous.

PS: yeah, yeah, I know. A bunch of people just wanted to run Linux on their PS3's. Maybe a very small fraction. For the most part, a lot of freeloaders with a false sense of self-entitlement were using these hacks to steal.

My favourite post from the thread in the OP's link:
Quote:
I will give $5 sometime me thinks, after all thanks to you I have about 30 thousand dollars worth of ps3 games now.

For this guy, he's still not sure if he's willing to pay anyone $5 for $30K worth of product. He's at least giving it some "thought" though.

I dont see why he deserves a donation for doing litherally nothing but bringing piracy and modified gamefiles to consoles. His iPhone jailbreaks have been improved by other developers and jailbreaking a PS3 is the most pathetic thing to do, period. He is defenately someone with alot of knowledge and talent but lately he behaves like a self-declared Julien Assange.

Most of you guys need to grow up! The ps3 was unbreakable until geohotz started working on it. So dont blame him!, and there arent many bright dev's who will spend their time hacking an console for free neither. I am going to donate just because he has done alot for us for free of charge. He might be an egoistic guy but he has a good heart. Stop the flaming now. Most of you guys on cfw, woudlnt have an cfw without him

I don't really see how jailbreaking a PS3 has any impact on Sony revenues. They don't make a dime selling firmwares, unless I'm missing a point, they can only get revenues from hardware (no impact), a cut on games (I don't believe JB harms this), PSN stuff (possible loss of revenue from ingame DLC) and Bluray royalties.

I know some people (a lot at one time) only bought a PS3 because they were cheaper than regular Bluray players, and for what I saw in these PS3 news the only thing that could have harmed Sony is the ensuing cheat spree on PSN and if it ever happened hacked DLC that might have become possible thanks to jailbreaking.

In no way, shape, shape or form can using a PS3 as a general computing device reduce hardware income for Sony, if anything it should drive it up. As for Bluray royalties, they wouldn't get some if someone uses the device to watch dvd's or stream media downloaded from Internet.

I'm sorry if honest, paying customers want to game without rampant cheaters. Geohot screwed them all. Perhaps it's you that needs to mature a bit and realize just what damage he's caused to those honest people, instead of defending him.

He's a half-talented goon. End of story.

I'd donate but I don't own an iphone or PS3 so i didn't actually benefit from the hacks
Maybe i should just donate anyway just because i support what he does even if i don't benefit from it

they will get sued from asking for money.
Soon as they start making money off this sony will have a case in court.
