Sony has blocked PS3 DNS Hack
Up until now users that have hacked their PS3 video game console have been able to do it through several methods and have been successful at doing so. Today, at around 6:00 pm Sony has given another blow to the hacker community by blocking access to the Playstation network through DNS or Proxy hacks.

About 6 hours ago, the main IP address that was being used as a proxy server to get access to the Playstation Network while still using firmware version 3.55 was working, however, the hacking community right now can confirm that the DNS does not work any more, and that another well known hack using Proxy on the connection settings has been disabled as well.

This is all part of Sony's campaign to discourage users of the PS3 from hacking the system. So far in the last couple of weeks Sony has been very proactive on stopping any resources on the internet that provide users with information or software that allows any type of hacking to their system. Also Sony has been working on the legal front by getting any developer that might have been involved in breaking the PS3's security into legal trouble.

Be it as it may, like it or not, Sony has so far been very successful at controlling the consequences of the PS3 being hacked. There is no doubt in my mind that we will soon enough hear from the hacking community either through angry forum posts all over the internet, or through a new developed method to connect hacked systems to the Playstation Network.

Quoting Tom:
Hackers are pieces of s**t. A bunch of poor live in the basement losers who steal and hide behind a false sense of entitlement and try and convince people they are standing up for your/their right to own something. All they are doing it taking things away from us and making more annoying DRM for the regualr paying people to deal with, screw you guys.


People don't hack to gain free shit. They do it for a challenge and because they are very smart. It is you who must be a piece of s**t because you are not smart enough to do this yourself. People who can hack tend to get better jobs than a lot of people because they can find vulnerabilities in many softwares and big corporations like that kinda s**t because then they can hire such person and help prevent people from exploiting their s**t

plenty of hackers are using it to pirate games (hurts gamers) or glitch online (hurts gamers).




I agree that cheaters suck, but how does piracy effect other gamers? I just dont see the correlation..








Simple.
When pirates hit, sales go down.
This leads to less games, less risks, less studios, less developers, etc.














Gamers? Please, the main ones being affected by this are the game designers, developers, game artist, producers,etc. Im planing to be a game developer myself, so i hope all pirates can stop and buy their games!

Quoting Zee:
This leads to smaller profits and thus less investment in future projects which results ultimately in poorer quality games. I hope you see the correlation now mate :-)


People have been saying this for years but I have never seen a single example of it being true on any platform other than the PC. It is almost as annoying as the pirates excuse of "I wouldn't have bought it anyways so it's not a lost sale". If piracy were rampant enough it would most definitely be true but when it comes to consoles it is a very small percentage of people that actually pirate so it actually has very little (if any) measurable impact on sales figures.

Is that why developers stopped making games for the Wii and XBOX 360 4 years ago when they were both hacked? You have to understand that such a small percentage of people will actually mod their systems that it doesn't really have any measurable impact on sales. Personally I don't pirate but I think it is ridiculous to actually care if anyone else does.

If people were not doing what they werent suposed to with materials they did not build be it hacking or cheating. The entire reason security systems exists is to prevent jerkoffs from doing such. They all would be lossing out on a hobby if there wasnt a need for security systems in the world, but there is so proof is in the pudding ban them all they are scum.
