Sony Preps ''Hack-Proof'' PlayStation 3

The drama surrounding the Killzone 3 leaks apparently has Sony worried that its platform could become a common piracy threat, EverythingHQ writes.

This new PS3 reportedly has a 300 GB hard drive and a price tag of about $300, which would replace the current 160 GB model and make room for a $249 or $199 version. The publication speculates that the launch of the console might be tied to the outcome of Sony's lawsuit against hacker George Hotz, who jailbroke the PS3.

That, however, appears to be rather unlikely as that suit could last years. If Sony wants to build a walled garden around its PS3, it will do it any way since the console's vulnerability has been shown. Sony declined to comment on the rumor.

    Yeah, label it as "hack-proof" ... that'll work. You might as well just ship it with a copy of linux, three 2 liters of mountain dew and two bags of doritos at that point.

    No such thing. The piracy numbers for the PS3 and Xbox 360 are pathetically low anyways. I don't know why Sony is so worried. It's just not anywhere nearly as easy on the consoles.
