    Re: The new PSP - NGP

    Buying a digital copy of a game you already own on UMD sucks on general principle, but a lot of these games have been out so long you can get 'em for $10-$15 from PSN. It probably won't break the bank unless you're trying to replace your entire library all at once.

    There is a modification to the PSP, but it isn't hardware related, it's a soft mod. You just flash the system's core, via pictures, which allows it to accept the installation of a custom firmware. It's only this simple for the original 1000 models though. Newer models do not require any hardware mods, though a recovery tool battery is needed for the flash to stick, but have the problem of not saving the mod after a system shutdown. This information is older than five months, at least, though so progress could have been made in that area.

    I'll also stress this isn't illegal in any way. Sony is taking GeoHot to court over the recent PS3 hacking situation, but on the grounds of hacking his system he can't be found guilty of anything illegal. It is the stuff outside of the system modifications he is being fought for, for just one example: they're saying he tried to extort them when he gained access to the PS3's root key. The only thing illegal in the PSP mod sector is if you're downloading and playing games you did not buy the rights to use, the standard piracy stuff.

    That is not in Sony's complaint, that was in their motion papers arguing jurisdiction. He is being sued for violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, Contributory Copyright Infringment - Copyright Act, California Computer Crime Law, Breach of the PlayStation Network Terms of Service and User Agreement, Tortious Interference with Contractual Relations, Trespass and, Common Law Misappropriation.

    At this stage it is still too earily to tell what in the complaint will stick. They are still fighting about jurisdiction. Currently the California court has found it has limited jurisdiction for the temporary restraining order, but has yet to determine if this case should be tried in Califorina or in New Jersey.

    That's just stupid, they don't have a chance in hell goin' for any of that... the should have stuck with the original claims, that would have at least gotten them something.
