    This is good news! Maybe they patch known exploids in the latest software and dev will make them finally public

      Yes lol I’m so tired of every YouTube video having comments with 500 likes that say nothing more than “hurry up and get Def jam fight for new York on the ps4 on 7.55 for me”

  3. Padla says:

    there ll no exploit releazd until ps5 is out, or in 10 years

    • Money_maker says:

      ooooh, they will not only be released, but be unleashed. Unfortunately to Sony, not us.

      Money, money, money…you know the lyrics 🙂

  4. MrFox says:

    That might close some exploits that could be useful on PS5’s retrocompatibility mode.

  5. Money_maker says:

    Money, money, money…If I had a little money. Money rules the world!!!

    This is bad news, they might close exploits that could be available on PS5’s retrocompatibility mode.

      You´re right a unsafe console could bring a lot of benefits like homebrew, but remember only a fraction of console users run cfw / Kernel exploits.. Security leaks could enable hackers access to ACE and therefore steal information run malicious code and so on.

  7. Joshua Taylor says:

    This make me wonder if PS5 is no more than a souped up PS4….and both consoles would be in trouble moving into the next couple years. Exploit 4, maybe easy exploit to 5…

    • Fallenleader says:

      They are likely to run an updated Horizon OS, since it isn’t an entirely new architecture. Horizon is quite stable now, so it makes sense.

  8. PsCashGrab says:

    Honestly the “Ps Comunity”doesnt matter 🙂

  9. mgplayer 47 says:

    why flow why

  10. evilpaul says:

    I figured he wouldn’t be releasing ***.

  11. berk can says:

    I dont find this bad news, because there are already a private exploit for 6.2 and good exclusives like spiderman can run on that version so I can update from 5.05 to 6.2 and still have most of games playable, after that I can safely update to latest version to play new games like cyberpunk avengers with price no problem

  12. Kalle Anka says:

    Oh, they really sold their souls to the devil then. Well, cash is king..

    Good article Wololo, good to have you posting again!

    Hacking consoles lost its appeal long ago. You lose access to online features in exchange for subpar emulation performance. Developers have realized this and there’s less and less support.

    In the case of the PS4 you get what? Something any MiniPC or barebone will crush on every aspect while being cheap, less noisy and much smaller. Get a Ryzen APU and you can even emulate PS3 & Wii U.

    The times of the Xbox homebrew scene are long gone.

    It still remains very attractive woman n handhelds though,because the “legal” alternatives are the GPD alternatives.

    Scene hackers gave us all for free, others guys got the credit just posting on youtube, forums, blabla. Many other do money with those hacks. No mention, no thanks, nothing. In the comments people only put claims and demands, rushing them and posting silly things.
    I think they finally thought a little about themselves.
    Many thanks guys, I always appreciate your work and efforts.

    Nothing in life is free. Bruce Lee said famously after first failing in Hollywood and retreating to Hong Kong “In life its always something for something, there is no such thing as something for nothing. You want something, you give something.” It’s as simple as that. It applies to everything in life from business to love. Hackers hack for fame and street cred, that can then be used as leverage for a career.
    That’s it. It was never for free. Sony has simply taken the veil off the charade. Good for the hackers they can now make money off their skills directly as opposed to the round about way in the past.
