Sony Trying to Take Down PS3 Hacking Websites


Recently SCEA showed courts that they own trademarks such as Playstation, PSP, PS and PS3. The reason for this is to add weight to their case to bring down popular PS3 Hacking websites such has PS3HAX.

“In this round of court documents filed by SCEA, they are showing the courts they own the rights to the names “Playstation, PSP, PS, PS3″ so they are pushing the courts for speedy discovery for any website that uses this trademarked “letters / names” in their domain names. One website that is mentioned a few times is “PS3HAX” for their in-depth reviews and tutorials on using the “backup manager” and of course “PS3ISO” for their daily updates for grabbing various games directly from the ‘net!”

Do you think Sony will be able to take down any PS3 hacking sites? Problem is they could pop up elsewhere later. It would be a never ending battle.

    They can’t take them all down but I higly support this, this would greatly decrease the number of online hacking which is the main problem.

    Anyone even remotely interested in hacking would normally be competent enough to find alternative routes to get what they want, ie connecting to a website via it’s ip address or simply using a search engine to look elsewhere.
    At best this is a short-term solution, something done for the want of something done and it kind of shows how helpless Sony is.

    this would greatly decrease NOTHING…except for the patience of all of SONY’s great consumers who purchase a PS3 from them and will soon end up being tied up with the firmware wars.

    Honestly hackers aren’t stupid and people are stupid for assuming they can be stopped. The world is full of billions of people and if you think something this small is going to stop hackers you are CLEARLY mistaken. At the end of the day they will rebuild and this war will go on forever. And if it does I’ll be sure to switch to an Xbox 360 and just keep my PS3 around for LBP2.

    But seriously SONY needs to stop. This situation is going to get worse before it ever gets better.
