October 15, 2010 // 8:40 pm - 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 farewell.

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.

Greetings"

I guess you would love a free lawsuit for circumventing and reverse engineering private stuff.

Someone please, takataka should make a tamikaze clone!

He would love to be a target!

Come on people, now were all like hermes is great or hermes is a girl. The man like every other freelance coder does it in his own spare time for the fun/learning. If the scene gets ugly why sit around in your own spare time trying to have fun? Doesn't make sense really.

We're lucky to reap the rewards of all of their efforts, there are alot of things in alot of scenes that would never see the light of day without them but instead of praising and thanking we hound for silly things like led fixes etc.

One thing we all need to remember is its a dog eat dog world and lets not take things to personally or get to carried away. If sony did we wouldn't have a ps3.

I agree that Hermes had done some great stuff for the scene , but all those people bitching about his work/nickname being stolen, yeah this does happen all the time. How do you think the software companies feel when you download their games for free??

"I backup all my own games" I hear you say!! "bullcrap" is what i say.

Overreacting? Not at all how would you feel when sonys at your door? Trust me its a higher probability than you think. He will lay low and spread his knowledge through a diff source / nick. We have seen this before. I think what hes doing is extremely smart and I would do the same. Props to Hermes and anyone on his team!
