Seeing the "complicated" iphone being hacked and unlocked so many times over - I was wondering why it is possible to hack the iPhone while the PS3 still remains untapped?

PS3 has been hacked to play homebrews but trying to play pirated games on a PS3 requires knowledge on how to hack the CELL which is not an easy task so ha for buying one while Xbox 360 owners have been enjoying for 2 years :)




Do whatever you want to do man.

Well they are differnt beasties aimed at different markets, so you can't really compare them.

Also Apple provide a huge amount of iPhone  technical knowledge to developers for free (as in you to can just download the software, the docs and start writing your own applications) whereas Sony do not.  That technical info combined with the uber-brains so people have means holes get found out and used.

Sony also have more experience on how to lock down a machine than Apple do, they've been able to learn from the tricks used against the PS1 and PS2 and put measures in place from day one.  Their motication for a secure machine stems from them losing lots of money to game piracy if they don't make things bullet proof.

And finally, Apple have assembled the  iPhone from parts you can buy off the shelf (the software is mostly theirs yes), but the CPU, RAM, radio gear, DSPs etc etc are all commodity items.  So again you can go off and get the data sheets for the parts and work out how to hook into them
Sony commissioned others to make their silicon for them (and probably did a lot of inhouse design manufacture themselves as well), which means they control who knows what ... and they are not going to tell you what pin 456 is going to do on IC xyz :-)

 The problems are coming from two parts :   First, the PS3 has higher productiontion cost which is no profit from selling console themselves ( Bule Ray driver still in higher price). From the SEC's history, they gain the profit almost from selling software. Even they hacked it, the price of bule ray disc is not affordable.
                                                               Second,  the technical reasons ...........................

What is the relevance of your comments to this discussion? Can you construct, and complete, some logical argument from the jumble of words you posted or is this just spam?
