PS JailBreak PS3 ModChip Shipping, Update Details Available
Previously we reported that the PS JailBreak Backup Manager was incoming with some of the rumored features, and today the official PS JailBreak site (linked above) has been updated stating the PS3 USB modchips are shipping and offering some update details.
To quote: "Firstly we would like to apologize for the shipping delay. Our product is now officially shipping, and we have eliminated delay for future orders. All future orders will be shipped within 24 hours of payment.
As this is a big project we needed to make sure that everything would be perfect for both the present and the future. Let us tell you the wait is well worth it as we have made our product even better then we thought possible.
We have several new things to announce. Our Backup Manager v1.1 will be released on or before the 15th of September with a very valuable feature as well as increased reliability and expandability. We have received many emails asking about updates, we have a solution in the works (unlike all copy cat clone makers).
Our solution will be released within 7 days as well and will only work with original units. As well we receive many inquiries as to price and competition. It is very important for all dealers and end users to understand that you get what you pay for.
It costs a lot of money to support and provide new features. Clone makers/ Free versions do not have our associated costs for research or production , but when you buy cheap you receive an inferior quality product that will not be able to have any updates or support.
Remember everybody you get exactly what you pay for. Some might say our product is priced to high , but we have to say if you want something that will continue to work then the money is well worth it! Thank you from the PS JailBreak Team."

these guys sure are trying hard to justify their ridiculous price.
I really don't think they will be able to keep their software/updates from being cloned/ripped for long.
The homebrew/free community will have better support than what the PSJailbreak people can provide. And I bet that the PSJailbreak people will steal ideas and software from the community, just like Datel did with the jig/pandora battery for the PSP.
Remember that this team has a great merit in the underground scene of the PS3.
Sounds like someone got sand in there panties when they went to the beach and everyone was already playing with there new toy... so now they are all mad trying to dis everyone elses because they are not as expensive and do the exact same thing without there logo on it...
honestly as soon as people start getting them and dumping the retail then there will be no barrier inbetween psjailbreak and psgroove, this will actualy probably end up running psjailbreak out of buisness...
realy getting it to play on 3.42 wouldnt be a serious goal for the sceene right now a more realistic goal would be a 3.42 custom firmware but even that is still a little bit in the crazy zone....
2) They wrote the Backup Manager
3) The reason why they sell it at that price is that the time and effort put into making this is - as history teach us - priceless.
So show some respect, without those guys there would've been no Rips floating around or any howebrew scene what-so-ever.
I think you all still need to respect the fact that they were the ONLY team to produce a working hack on the PS3, and without them and dare I say it (geohot) this would have never happened.
If people want to support them and spend a redonkulas amount of $ to support them then so be it, this just means your not one of the ones supporting them...
Although I do agree they are way over priced they should have just priced it at $80 and I'm sure no one would have complained as much.
