Buying And Selling PSJailbreak? Sony Files Lawsuit over PSJailbreak Device Owners

By Sidharth | Gadgets

While the good news for Sony PS3 owner comes in the form of PSJailbreak Modchip but this can also put our PS3 in jeopardy  – being online with the jailbreak could result in a ban.

PSJailbreak actually means more sales to Sony, but Sony wouldn’t take this for granted! So, Sony will now be filing lawsuit over PSJailbreak due to which the PSJailbreak shipments have officially been canceled. Sony Europe has imposed an injunction on any person selling and buying the PSJailbreak devices.

And in Australia, the federal court has ordered both the online retailers: Quantronics and Ozmodchips, to halt the distribution of PSJailbreak.

Also the firmware upgrade is likely to be in works that patches the jailbreak. Although hard to predict where this PSJailbreak-Sony issue goes next but Sony are handling the situation very well to protect its consumer and the intellectual property of the content on the PS3 system.

New firmware updates can only stop the device. I don’t see how people who pirate are going to upgrade their firmware anyway. The backed up games are going to get their firmwares stripped out, it may just allow most people to play new disc games well! Sony is anyway going to prevent people without new firmware to log on to that PoS PSN.

So there is no point in anybody who has bought the device to be scared of Sony. Or anybody intending to buy the device. Why get PSN games when you can pirate and play larger disc games?

Nobody with common sense is going to be scared of this. Because they know that Sony is going to jack legit owners anyway, like they did with the OtherOS. So Screw or Sue Sony!
