Forum user Geox_10 on Elotrolado.net has discovered a PS JailBreak clone called PSGroove Hermes recently, and as a result of using his name on the PS3 modchip Spanish developer Hermes has bid the PS3 scene farwell.
The offending product is currently being sold at VolumeRates.com (linked above) under the title 'PSGroove Hermes PS Break Revolution USB Chipset Adapter for PS3 Fat and Slim' for $18.79 USD each.
Here is what Hermes had to say, to quote roughly translated:
"This should be a sick joke: Not only advantage of working sceners, if you have the nerve up to take my nickname as a reference to a product, and notice that I have nothing to do with them.
Well if that's what they want, go ahead: selling their clones and seize whatever they want, I happened to keep the riffraff and although I feel for others, here ended my contribution to the scene of PS3.
Aww what the hell! Count on a bunch of bottom-feeding pricks to ruin a good thing. There goes A LOT of development and progress by a great coder, who happened to give the scene so much, all to have it disappear. Anyway we could get our own lawsuit going, and bring Hermes back?
1. Someone crying over their 'nickname'.
2. Accusing a chinese cloner of being a part of the so called "scene" as if they have some kind of social responsibility when if anything it's an advertisement to let people know that it's hermes compatible. Are people that dense? China has been doing this for years.
3. Attempting to garner attention and get people screming please don't leave!!! I'm getting Egohot flashbacks.
Hermes may have done some good but get the hell off your high horse.
What a bunch of horse ish - People always trying to act like someone their not... Hermes we appreciate you more than anything and you need not worry about anyone of us buying anything from these fags!!! A big FU goes out to these fake fags spoofing psgroove.
