A group known by the name of ‘The Three Musketeers’ has allegedly hacked the PS3 which can promote piracy at a bigger scale. Originally, they had no plans to release this hack. However, plans changed once their hack was leaked by an unknown source. What is known, though, is that a Chinese hacking group ripped that hack and started selling it.
In response to this, The Three Musketeers released the hack for free along with this statement.
As this was a group effort, we wouldn’t normally have lost a word about it ever, but as we’re done with PS3 now anyways, we think it doesn’t matter anymore. Congratulations to the guy that leaked stuff, you, sir, are a 1337 haxx0r, jk, you’re an asshole.
People should know that crooked personalities are widespread in this so called ‘scene’. Some people try to achieve something for fun together and make the wrong decision to trust others and share their results with them, but ofcourse there got to be the attention seeking fame wh*** that has to leak stuff to feel a little bit better about him-/herself.
Now the catch is that it works like this in every ‘scene’, just that in others it usually doesn’t come to light.The only sad thing is, that the others who worked on this won’t get the attention they deserve because they probably want to remain anonymous (also they don’t care about E-fame & all).
PS: This is neither about drama nor E-fame nor ‘OMG WE HAZ BEEN FIRST’, we just thought you should know that we’re disappointed in certain people. You can be sure that if it wouldn’t have been for this leak, this key would never have seen the light of day, only the fear of our work being used by others to make money out of it has forced us to release this now."

Sony did manage to cope with that dongle device made to enable users to back up games on PS3. Now, how far this attempt will go? We will have to wait and see.
