PS3 hack escapes court challenge

Sony’s battle to block the distribution of a hack for its PlayStation 3 (PS3) has been won in an Australian court but lost on the internet.

The court ruled on Friday that a ban on distribution of the PSJailbreak “dongle”, first issued on 27 August, would be made permanent.

However, on Thursday the software code behind a similar hack was released free on the internet as PSGroove.
