Games Sony has responded to the recent cracking of the Playstation3, and the company claism that they can fix the issue - which ought to be impossible considering the scope of the hack. "We are aware of this, and are currently looking into it," Sony said, "We will fix the issues through network updates, but because this is a security issue, we are not able to provide you with any more details."

That's right. It is time that Sony abandoned PS3, bring out PS4, once they have figured out how to defend the next platform against these sort of hacks.

Bring it out, it can be mostly backwards compatible, perhaps let existing owners get a trade-in value and move on. Nothing to see here.

If backward compatibility kept, crack compatibility kept as well, so hackers will not even have to move a finger, the console will be hacked from its roots (kit ?)...

It's a fair suggestion given how long the ps3 remained uncracked. Sony made some errors that can be easily corrected in the next version.
