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.

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's more likely they'll do what they did with the PSP... add more security to the newer revisions. The PSP1000 was hacked YEARS ago, the PSP2000 is kind of hacked, the PSP3000 can only just about be hacked, and that depends on the firmware installed and relies on real absolute brute force attacks methodologies.

And PSP2 is already on the horizon - Sure, it may start out with original PSP compatibility, but I'm betting that only lasts for a couple revisions before that is eliminated as well.
