218w ago - Another update from PS3 hacker GeoHot's site, this time with a parody video which has received over 1 million views thus far for The Light It Up Contest featuring GeoHot rapping and daring Sony to exhibit it.

Download: geohotlightsitup.mp3

Pictured below, if you check the properties of the MP3 download you will notice what appear to be PS3 file offsets despite some speculating they may be 3.56 Keys.

The video is below, and from his page:

I am subject to the TRO
But they ain't copping my computers
The dongle key tweet was mad funny... can't link to it

Apparently linking to the official PlayStation Blog, referred to as "a site", is a desire to continue circumventing (see this page 4,11)

I'm amazed they would actually bring that up and not be laughed out of court... free speech is dead
It clearly was to parody (protected speech) the ridiculousness of the campaign to censor the internet
Can anyone really not find the metldr key?

geohot lights it up

I have a feeling that a LOT of peoples psn accounts are now on the vege of being banned. Realized this last night, but if someone looked at geohot's blog, and then played online, and once sony gets the information out of google, they are going to start banning people.
all they are going to do is cross-reference the IP addy's in their psn records with the ones from the blog. Any matches and guarantee, those people will be banned.

Indeed. Privacy is a right in most contries .. but apparently not in US. This whole thing is a complete travesty and clearly shows that justice in the US belongs (no offence) to the ones with enough money. This would never had happened in Europe. Its all about priority tho.

In most european contries you are allowed to play 1 or more backups of games/movies/music you own (so you can easy play a backup in your car/other house). Priority is obviously quite low .. because who really get hurt?

But in european contries if you even accidentally sneeze the word "terrorist" .. you will find yourself in jail for upto 48 hours without ANY proof whatsoever (while they raid your home for possible proof). Priority is obviously quite high .. because people do actually get hurt if it isnt done.

Hey Sony, guess what. I'm renting gamez to your console, not buying them!

Not gonna buy crap of this company whatever anymore, if my money goes anywhere then greedy Microsoft can have them.

Thanks for buying out the HDDVD market, thanks for everything Sony, messing up the industry. Oh hey, you introduce 3D, that's great does that mean I can just connect my nVidia Sterioscopic 3D kit and enjoy? NO! I have to buy your TVs, which has always been crap. Stop making TVs! Then I need your fancy glasses of paper.

Sony this is going outta hand, and if.. I mean, slow down.. something is gonna hit you in the face pretty soon.

Back to computer gaming people, at least we can do whatever we want, buy and configure whatever powerful hardware we want. Don't buy a damn PS3; means their third year on minus in revenue.

I mean, before I was like supporting you guys, making all these titles; as all the "Sony" logoed games was like "Wooow" (Heavy Rain, Uncharted series, GT series, Ratchet & Clank, Metal Gear Solid...)

What I'm trying to tell is: Don't give money to maniacs. I'm refreshing and downloading the jailbreak, come and get me!

I know thats a little extreme, but it's not THAT far from what we're dealing with. What we have is a corporation that will do absolutely anything to win. Guess what Sony. Your messing with the wrong bull. Robin Williams said it best; "It's not big brother you have to worry about anymore, it's little snitch.'

Well guess what Sony, the internet is full of 'little snitches', and especially with the LG claim that you doing exactly the same frigging thing your accusing all of us of doing when we run homebrew. All those snitches (especially this one) will be watching your EVERY move VERY closely.

I don't think they're doing anything to the people that downloaded the file, just proving a point in the case to help win...

The debate of piracy is always a funny thing. Most people would use these jailbreaking methods to pirate games. So what drives people to piracy. It's the cost! Here in Australia, games are $100AUD - which due to the aussie dollar doing so well is the same as the US dollar. Yet games are so expensive. Music CD and movies DVD/BluRay can be brought for under $20 dollars [even less].

I'm a musician, have a band too, and know the costs of production in a recording studio - looking at $1000 AUD dollars a day just to record here in Melbourne (and at a semi pro studio). So you can imagine a big band spending close to a million dollars recording and producing a CD. Some band's producer fees can run up to a quarter of a million dollars - add promotion, mastering, mixing, etc and the costs rise. Yet the cost of a CD is $20 AUD sometimes less.

A movie maker has the same problems. Avatar cost 500 million to make - yeah sure James Cameron can afford it, but once out of cinemas, the cost of buying it from the local JB Hi Fi is again $20 AUD. Blu ray more like $40 AUD or so.

Game developer can have the same costs. Killzone 2 believed to have cost around 50 million USD to make over the 4 years. I'm hearing too that the mass costs of promotion and marketing is extreme for a video game. Look at Duke Nukem - that costs millions of marketing. Yet those costs are $80 - 100AUD

I can understand the differences among the different media, but still the costs of games can be 5 times the price verses same media [Yes true that blu-ray vs cd or dvd, yet the Xbox360 media is still DVD9 - same as dvd movies]. The band that I'm in got 500 CD made - they cost us $2.50 to make [that cover, disc with coloured printing - everything] - so you can imagine the cost of cds are.

Depending on the developer and the situation - Games developers get a certain amount of money to produce and make the game. Yet it's the publisher and big company that makes a lot of money. Heck look at the whole EA crap out with re-having to purchase an online code when buying second hand games. Greed!

If the price of games were that of $20 AUD then piracy would take a fall. Today I just brought Left For Dead 2 for $19 [though granted it was pre-owned but looks in great condition], and Kameo for $9. Paying $108 for Call of Duty black ops is so over the top. Even second hand you're looking at $70 due to being a popular title

Usual argument {Enjoyment} - I get more enjoyment out of a game ie Online play, DLC, MMO etc. But in saying that I also get enjoyment out of listening to the new 'Opeth' or 'Her Tortured Embrace' album and listening to said records more than once. Same with movies, same with books, same with other online media or personal vices.

In the end it's greed that rears its ugly head. Greed from the major companies, greed from people like you and me.

In some countries like mine its not illegal to BACKUP a dvd or game its illegal to break COPY PROTECTION.

So what if a disc has no copy protection?

Then what about copy protected DVD's, it is legal to backup DVD's for personal use, in some countries around in Europe: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ripping#Other_Countries
