PS3 Hacker graf_chokolo Likely Headed To Prison.

It’s pretty much a given that nobody likes Sony. They’re assholes plain and simple. And while the world was transfixed on infamous iOS and PS3 hacker, George Hotz (Geohot), another talented PS3 hacker by the name of graf_chokolo was waging his own war with the media giant. But where Geohot was able to settle and move on, graf_chokolo will have to give in to financial woes and take up residency in prison instead.

In a comment posted on his website, graf_chokolo says:

Hi guys, no money left anymore. Going to jail soon probably because i cannot pay court costs.
But i’m ready to stand up for everything i said and go to jail for that too. It’s not important to win, more important is to show them that we are ready to fight, that they cannot scare me off easily. Yeah, i’m ready to go to jail for my believes and my principles.

Most of people probably think that all computer and kernel hackers are weak kids, hiding in a cellar, eating pizza whole day, writing software and looking for attention Maybe, but that’s NOT me. And i will get out eventually and continue my work. My work means very much to me.

It really is quite a shame that Sony can take people to court and ruin their lives when they’re merely trying to return a much requested feature to the community. Maybe if Sony actually cared about their users and environment as a whole they’d support the hacker community and/or hire them to better the platform. In reality, however, Sony hates you. End of story.
