PSP Hacked, Nobody Surprised
I feel like I should probably just prepare a "the street finds..." generic posting and I could just slot in $DEVICENAME and $RECENTCLEVERHACK. The latest entry would be Sony's PSP (PlayStation Portable) and a clever (if potentially dangerous) hack of switching cards while the system is powered up. This appears to let people circumvent at least some of the extremely tight controls Sony tried to install to permit people to play only "authorized" games. As with many initial cracks, this one is likely to remain impractical for general use. However, we can expect subsequent cracks to be easier and more home-gamer-friendly.
