Sony wants 16.800$ from seller jailbroken PS4 devices with illegal backups.

In October last year TorrentFreak found out that Sony was pursueing a jailbroken PlayStation 4 seller (with preinstalled illegal backups) in the United States, who also owned a website informing *uhum* people to never buy games again... Now the same source reports that the company demands a compensation of 16.800 Dollars or about 14.765 Euro, because the seller did not respond to the original complaint. The Japanese company therefor asks the judge to issue a default judgment for violating DMCA.




Included in that sum (if that's how you can call that) is the sale of two exploitable consoles for 1600$ or 800$ each and 200$ per illegally installed game. They also want 3458$ for the legal costs.


The use of illegal game backups is limited to games released with max. firmware 5.05. A firmware version that was released more than a year ago, which luckily means that recent games are not vulnerable until a new Exploit Chain is released for a higher firmware.


There are also quite a lot of advantages on having an up-to-date console, think of Free 2 Play games, being in parties with friends and the abillity to play every game ever released for the console. My motto is, and will always be: Do not Pirate, Support Developers! And if you don't want to update your exploitable console it might be a good time to look for a cheap used / updated PlayStation 4.


But what if you can't afford an extra console? On ConsoleHax.com/guides/ you have a section with a number of possibilities. And there's even more, because in recent days homebrew (games) are making their way to the PlayStation 4.

Because people are stupid and think they can charge more money by adding stolen games they didnt pay for.
