Last week reports appeared that hackers managed to crack older versions of the Sony PS3 firmware to boot copies of games. Sony says to go after hackers with legal actions.

The cracks are not very far yet. Games are not playable and also no homebrew software can be run on the PS3 yet.
Possibly Sony does not want a scenario like on the Sony PSP where homebrew firmware hacks are big.Legal actions are hardly preventing hackers to tinker with the PS3. If you want to do homebrew code on the PS3 just install Linux. The hacking on the PS3 will therefore focus on breaking the anti-piracy measures. As long as games get more expensive every year, the motivation grows to break the copy protections.
