    If only someone would leak the Wiikey Fusion software code 🙁

    • spok says:

      DK about Wiikey but rumour has it there will be USB dongle with MTX functions since only NOR is flashed (no soldering will be needed:)

  2. TB says:

    I will buy this key once groups starts releasing games. *** these so-called devs for not sharing anything. $60 is the price of the original TrueBlue dongle, that gave use 3.60+ games for a while. This will be worth it if the scene groups releasing games in this format.

    On one hand it kind of sucks that the ultimate result of all this drama is the potential waste of a perfectly good modchip. On the other hand, maybe this will push Sony into bringing out a massive update to patch as many exploits as they can and force the current PS4 exploits being held onto into the public.

    I did call it saying it would be another cobra blackfin type deal…seems I and many others were right

    talk about a cry baby.

    This kind of things are for sure not done “just for knowledge”. When grieving gets in the middle and profit is the goal, everyone try to wash their hands. This is not the best reference for a scene and those involved on, can’t be called sceners, but just pesky scumbags.

    I’m glad the 3DS and Vita scene are not like that (can’t talk about the XBOX scene as I’m not interested on it in any way), hope new people get involved into PS3/PS4 scene and do things better. The knowledge is there but sadly not many can’t call it theirs’.

    Typical drama on the scene.

    I wonder if accounts that are game sharing will be affected??

    • Carlos says:

      Not for current games as the purchase agreement on digital games on the PlayStation store have a 2 activated systems agreement, but perhaps future game releases or console generations can have a different licence that limits the users to 1.

    On one hand, it’s a shame that this drama ultimately meant the waste of a modchip. On the other hand, perhaps this’ll mean Sony will push out an update trying to fix as many exploits as they can and forcing the known hidden exploits out into the community.

    • pez2k says:

      I’m happy to see as many piracy exploits blocked as possible because that then forces pirates to help break the code signing security model itself and allow homebrew development, not just piracy alone.

      • Panda says:

        Oh, I couldn’t give a damn about this modchip. Apologies if that’s what it came across as. I’m just waiting on that PS4 kernel exploit to be released publicly to the community so a CFW or similar can be worked on, and the only way that’s happening is when it’s patched in a new update which this modchip’s reporting will likely force.

    What is the point of all of this drama? Nobody benefits in the end, a potentially neat mod has been patched (Presumably) and end users get nothing. Time wasted.

    Update 4.75 is coming. July 21st. note it down. this is paper weight, nothing else.

    […] is not a big surprise (we had mentioned the many ways Sony could choose to block the MTX Key), and more pain could be on the way for the few people who had chosen to buy the piracy device: […]
