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.

A bit off topic but I don't think you can enable PS2 emulation on PS3s that don't have it, because it relies on hardware that's not present on those PS3s. The PS2's architecture is quite complex and the PS3 isn't powerful enough to do it fully in software.

The original European PS3 had software emulator for PS2. Which was later removed ;)

It was only a partial emulator. It emulated the CPU, but the GPU was present in hardware. And a lot of PS2 games don't work on those PS3s.
