Rumor: PS3 Hacked

According to rumors floating around the Internet, the PS3 has finally been hacked, with reports of “backup” BluRay discs being used to run games on the console.

The software that reportedly can hack the PlayStation 3 is known as PSJailbreak, and was sent to numerous modchip resellers from Hong Kong. One of those recipients posted videos to YouTube, which can be seen below, showing the system in action. It looks pretty realistic, so we have to assume that this isn’t just hot air being blown around. It seems to really be a hack for the PlayStation 3.

Frankly, any hack is a loss for the average gamer. If a system can be hacked, it leads to less sales (because of piracy), which eventually leads to increased prices. Ugh.
