As Sony goes on to make a (unfair) lawsuit against Hacker Extraordinar, GeoHots, G4 interviews the defense to take his side of the story.

This case can have a major impact on the entire gaming population. If GeoHots wins, the gaming population should no longer live in fear of corporation lawsuits for modifying their already purchased devices. This can be seen in a previous court case Mr.Hots has won against Apple, where the DMCA was modified to allow for our Mobile Devices to be modified legally. Unfortunately this modification specifically says “Mobile Devices” and not “All Owned Devices” thus allowing Sony the lawsuit.

Sony and its case seems weak fortunately. Sony is calling GeoHots exploit a way for hackers to pirate games on their console, while GeoHots digresses that his exploit is specifically modified to allow homebrew, but not pirated games.

Geohot seems cocky but he’s probably going to go down in flames… just saying. As much as I’d hate to say it, I don’t think he’s got too much of a chance.

He beat Apple and most of Sonys claims are baseless- I think he’ll be fine.

It’s going to suck when the hackers take over online play.
