The case is now over, the dust has settled, and once again PS3 hacker and root key exposer George “Geohot” Hotz is talking loud on his blog. What’s the new show? Well he’s donated $10,000 to the EFF, with hopes that “America can one day again be a shining example of freedom, free of the DMCA and ACTA, and that private interest will never trump the ideas laid out in the constitution of privacy, ownership, and free speech”.

But that’s not all. What really brings pleasure to Geohot is that, according to him, the “PS3 got owned”.

Infamous PS3 hacker, George Hotz (aka Geohot), has been slammed with a lawsuit by Sony, one we’re certain is costing the 21yr old money he doesn’t have. But it’s his fault, isn’t it? You hack the console, release its root key online knowing full well people would use it to create homebrew, pirate games, hack into PSN, cheat online, put gamers information at risk and that’s all while honest gamers are dealing with ridiculously long firmware updates because Sony’s trying to keep things safe. And then, like a guilty child crying ‘I’ve done nothing wrong”, you come begging for those same gamers dollars?

You’ve got to be kidding me.
