Sony’s decision to settle their case against PS3 hacker George “Geohot” Hotz outside of court left a lot of money in his donation based legal defense fund. Instead of trying to be a douche and make away with the leftovers, Hotz instead wrote a check for $10,000 to the Electronic Frontier Foundation. Here’s what he had to say about the gesture.
This money goes to the EFF in hopes that America can one day again be a shining example of freedom, free of the DMCA and ACTA, and that private interest will never trump the ideas laid out in the constitution of privacy, ownership, and free speech.
Maybe he’s not such a giant prick, after all! Or maybe he’s just trying to avoid a shit storm.
A new arcade style shooter called Alien Jihad comes to PC, iOS, Android and several consoles later this year and it’s already sparking a lot of controversy.
Considering that it uses the word “jihad” in the title and reportedly features achievements like Greedy Banker, Infidel, Foreclosure King, Bailout Champion, Day of Rage, and Tea Party, however, that shouldn’t come as a big surprise.
Nintendo is unveiling their next console at E3 2011 in June and, according to the scoop from Game Informer, it’s going to be more powerful than both the PS3 and Xbox 360.
Nintendo hasn’t commented, yet, but several sources are reporting that the news is true.
The next Call of Duty: Black Ops map pack is coming to the Xbox 360 on May 3rd. (No release dates for the PS3 or PC versions, yet, as usual.)
It’s called Escalation and includes four new multiplayer maps – Hotel, Convoy, Zoo, and Stockpile – as well as one additional map for the Zombies mode.
In a bit of a surprise move, Sony announced this morning that they’ve reached an agreement outside of court with PS3 hacker George “Geohot” Hotz. Not much is known about the deal at this point except that Hotz has agreed to some sort of permanent injunction. In other words, he can never distribute a hack for one of Sony’s consoles again.
And that’s the end of that – except for the fact that the console is still jailbroken.
If you’ve been looking forward to the arrival of Dungeon Siege III, you’re unfortunately going to have to wait just a bit longer. Square Enix just announced that the game’s release is being bumped from May 31st to June 21st. It’s due out on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
Why? Because the game simply isn’t ready, according to Square Enix CEO Mike Fischer.
Anonymous has issued an apology after substantial backlash from the PS3 community over their crippling attack on the PlayStation Network online game service.
“Anonymous is not attacking the PSN at this time. We realize that targeting the PSN is not a good idea. We have therefore temporarily suspended our action, until a method is found that will not severely impact Sony customers.
Anonymous is on your side, standing up for your rights. We are not aiming to attack customers of Sony. This attack is aimed solely at Sony, and we will try our best to not affect the gamers, as this would defeat the purpose of our actions. If we did inconvenience users, please know that this was not our goal.”
Way to go, guys. Alienate the people you’re supposedly fighting for!
