According to many reports, Sony is trying to develop a hack-proof PlayStation 3 console. It is expected that Sony will replace all current PS3 SKUs with the new one. We already know how fierce Sony is towards hackers and jailbreakers. Suing GeoHot is an example as the young hacker was able to jailbreak PlayStation3 Console.
It is for sure that Sony will bring a lot of changes for its security. It is expected that the company will lower the prices for its console device. It is not understandable why Sony is dropping the prices.
The following text is taken from ETHQ:
If they really wanted to drop the price of their machine the best opportunity would have been at E3 last year. So, there must be a motive behind the recent price drops from major retailers – Sony are reportedly looking into a hack-proof PS3 SKU.
According to what I have been told by an anonymous source Sony are already deep into plans of developing a hack-proof PS3 system. This is mainly due to the recent leaks of Killzone 3 which has worried Sony of their console becoming a mainstream threat to piracy.
The hack-proof SKU will be a slim PlayStation 3 model and will contain a 300GB hard drive as an incentive to purchase the hack-proof system – the price of the SKU will be £186.99, my source informs me. The scheduled launch is unsure at this time due to Sony seeing if they can win the battle in the courts against the root of all the PS3 hacks – George Hotz.
Sony is essentially trying to get rid of all the old SKUs with these price drops – and even their own price drop incoming possibly – so it makes way for their new hack-proof model. via ETHQ
Let us see is it just a rumor or are we really going to get Slim PS 3 models with 300GB hard drive and SKU for £186.99.
