Legal And so Sony's crusade against Playstation 3 hacker George "Geohot" Hotz continues. After Sony getting all of Geohot's computers and access to server logs and personal details from many of his websites and social media accounts, Sony has now been given access to Geohot's PayPal account, and all information within it - including of the people he has had financial dealings with.

For the over 1 million PS3 MW2 owners who had their online experience ruined Hotz is an asshead.


Right, because God forgive they'd blame Sony for not designing their software properly. PS3 users where vulnerable the moment they plugged in their unit, they just didn't know it.Maybe they would have preferred that Hotz had kept quiet and released the hack underground as a 0day?
If he had actually done that I could have understood why they'd blame him.

If PS3 owners could vote they would have him thrown in jail.


Thankfully the lynch-mob is not the preferred means of justice these days.
Maybe taking gaming less serious might be a good idea too.
