PlayStation 3 finally hacked?
The so far unhackable PlayStation 3 may have finally had its copy protection beaten.
According to reports on Engadget a USB modchip has been created that allows would-be hackers to dump entire games onto USB storage devices and even the PS3 hard disk. The games would then be playable without the need for the original Blu-Ray disc to be present.
Until now Sony has been claiming victory in the war against piracy but should these reports prove true the PS3 may be hit by a new wave of software piracy especially given how easily upgradeable the hard disk is.
Sony has yet to comment on the reports but they are probably fully investigating the news as we speak.
