The funny thing is that I bought the amaze break thing on from some german dude. I had no idea it was this clone just some usb dongle for use with psgroove. I found out that this was the amaze break from a rather vague picture on the auction

The problem though is that the info on the auction is in german and I did not see that there is no warranty, and that it is coming from hong kong and it will take almost a month to arrive!

yeah, at this point it's getting ridiculous! Why make all these "alternative" versions aka clones if you can't buy them? lol I wonder how many people got suckered into buying the original high priced version.

Dozens of clones and no way to buy them, LOL!

The AmazeBreak USB enclosure looks like a OCZ Diesel USB thumb drive.

I have never seen so many devices being advertised and not a single one offered for sale in any other type of market. Strange times we live in.

Another clone of a clone from some more "clowns"! This was bound to happen with all these clones but all these popping up with no option to buy is getting out of hand!

Send in the clones... Personally I can't fathom how anyone would bother even trying to get one of these at this point.

Even assuming you can find a group that's legitimate.. and isn't backordered for 6 months.. and isn't shut down by a legal injunction.. what do you really get for your money?

A dongle that can only perform one function, so it'll just be hanging ugly and awkward off your PS3 forever.. much smarter to get any of the myriad of standalone devices that actually perform real functions and just happen to *also* be capable of hacking the PS3.

As long as you're spending money on this, you might as well get something for it, as well as avoiding the headaches of the fakes and the legal issues of the real Jailbreaker companies.

They just like to tease people with the possibility of a release. There have been like 20 clones announced but none to buy.
