Some months have passed since the incident and after pledging to find a way around Sony’s patch for the PS3, Hotz has made a surprising announcement via twitter. He’s apparently retiring from his hacking career.
“It was a cool ride, and I learned a lot. Maybe I’ll do in the next few days, a formal goodbye.”
Is Hotz really throwing in the towel or is he just waiting for the day when Sony let’s his guard down regarding the security of the PS3. Either way, Sony can take comfort in knowing that the PS3 remains unhackable…for now.
