So teh PSP has been haxored. Didn't take long, did it? Although, while the UMD has been ripped, it can't be burned. Yet.
That's the thing with this stuff - surely the combined numbers of hackers will always best the small numbers of developers? Why spend money on locks, when there are more picks than locks? Doesn't make sense, does it. It's also a real shame that:
He pointed out that Sony has taken measures against this [running software direct from the memory stick] - since although the PSP is capable of running software off the Memory Stick, it uses a different format to UMD software, and the device will only run software that has been cryptographically signed by Sony itself.
Open and/or free always bests closed and/or expensive. Sony should have learned this when they chose ATRAC over mp3 - and look how much that cost them: far more than pirates ever could have. I guess this means no homebrew games running off the sticks then. *pout*
