It's not the end of the world people, as if the PS3 will now implode and go by the wayside.  This is the last Console to be hacked, it's joined the club of all the other consoles to be hacked.  As of right now this single hack is unstable, sure they will figure it out in time but most of the other consoles have very stable hacks and tried and true modchips available and they haven't died an untimely death.

Sounds like the PS3 will go the same way as the PSP. Sony will just update the firmware every few months and you can say goodbye to all your online play, if you install this hack.

He's not an "Uber-1337 hax0r" like ThunderBolt.

The only things I want to be able to do with my PS3 is make images of the PS1/PS2 games that I own and play them sans disc, and play SNES/NES/Genesis ROMS on the PS3... I may have to install Linux for that though...

Why do you only want to make images of PS1 and PS2 games that you own, yet have no problem stealing NES, Genesis, and Super NES games?

Touche!

However, I do own the carts. for the ROM's that I have. There's only a few from each system that I play.

BUT, all you can do is take my word for it (as goes with a lot on the internet).
