Sony's legal battles explained by Groklaw.net

Judge Judy will settle this shit.
If your like me, you may be wondering why in the hell the PS3 seems to be a hot bed for hackers and why its big daddy Sony is in the headlines almost daily. To say the least there is a struggle between Sony and a percentage of its users that has gotten to the point where legal action is being taken by both sides. 

Until GeoHot came into my life and released the news that he was jailbreaking the PS3 and handing out all the keys to the castle, I wasn't paying attention much to the PS3 hacking scene. Once that happened Sony has taken action on him and the debate between hacking, freedom, piracy, software licenses and corporate power have been all the rage.

The basic gist of what happened is this. Sony realized that having the ability to install Linux (or other OS) on the PS3 was becoming a security risk by way of piracy and hacking (i.e. losing cash). So Sony decides to release a firmware update that when installed removes that function and if you chose not to install it you would lose access to PSN and the ability to play any new game. This of course pisses off all the Linux users out there and they file a class action lawsuit. Then in order to get Linux back onto the PS3, hackers have taken arms and spent the last year trying to jailbreak the system so people can have freedom to do what they want on the hardware. Now Sony is mad/crazy taking names. The innocent gamers suffer.

Primal Carnage (not Primal Rage) - Dinosaurs rule your face.

Dinosaurs, I love you.

What is it about boys and Dinosaurs? It seems that from the moment a boy can comprehend the idea of a giant lizard monster that terrorizes all other creatures, They fall in love. This game, Primal Carnage, developed by Lukewarm Media and built with the Unreal engine, looks great. Video below.

Ep 39: Clever Girl


This weeks podcast is all about Dinosaurs thanks to the recent announcement of "Jurassic Park The Game" by Telltale Games. Back in the mid 90's Dinosaurs were infinitely more popular than zombies and we talk about some of our favorites games featuring Dinosaurs. We hope they start making a comeback soon to terrorize the video game industry. Because really, who doesn't love to see people get eaten by a T-Rex while they're sitting on the toilet?

What are some of your favorite video games featuring Dinosaurs?

Here is a list of the topics we covered on this week.
  • Piracy again
  • Games with Dinosaurs: Jurassic Park The Game & Primal Carnage
  • Dead Island game trailer
  • Hunting and drinking Iguana blood
  • Chick Chick Boom WiiWare demo
  • The Prince of Persia movie is horrible
  • Sony S1 Tablet

Sony is proving to be a very busy company indeed over the last few months. With the announcement of the NGP(PSP2), the new Sony Ericcson phone, and Sony Playstation Suite. It looks like the companies future is bright. Engaget reports that Sony is now poised to release a new tablet device codenamed the "S1" and it has some very interesting features.

Killzone 3 Open Beta Impressions


On Thursday morning PS3 owners received access to the Killzone 3 Mulitplayer Beta. Luckily I was at home sick and for hours dived right into what Guerrilla games has to offer for its next installment to its PS3 exclusive. I'm a pretty big fan of the series and really enjoy the Killzone world, design and single player campaign. I still however have had mixed feeling about Killzone 2's multiplayer.

So lets see if things have changed a bit shall we?
