Games All the recent hackery news regarding the Playstation 3 has culminated in the inevitable: the first custom firmware for the Playstation 3. KaKaRoTo, its creator, did not release his custom firmware; in fact, he released the tools so you can modify your own Playstation 3's firmware update package. The feature set is extremely limited - but that's kind of the point. He left most of it untouched, and refuses to implement anything related to piracy.

J/K - but I'm surprised nobody commented on this yet.

I sorta can't wait until the PS3 becomes phased out now that CFW is a possibility (which I suspect Sony will expedite). Once they start showing up at yard sales and such, I'd love to pick one up for a few $ and hack around with it a bit ;)

o.O phased out? What about the millions of gamers (like myself) who actually use the damn things?

But it's inevitable... look at all the consoles that have been abandoned for the "next big thing" ;)

Did your purchase come with a guarantee that Sony won't phase it out before you got tired of it?

It seems Thom screwed up more than just a hyperlink this time and now the comment link for this doesn't appear and the whole main page's layout is all messed up.

Edit: the link does appear, layout still messed up.

I'm getting the weird layout as well, but only in Firefox. Site looks fine in Chrome and Epiphany, so I'm not sure what's wrong.
