This has been going on for a while with Sony, George Hotz (GeoHot) is the same guy that did the first jailbreak on an iphone, and there is alot more to the story. Now it has come to light that Microsoft is involved and that they have appently made a big donation to George Hotz legal fees but neither microsoft or hotz will confirm it, but apparently the hackers like microsoft and hate sony and also sony has now got restraining orders on Hotz. I will post the articles and original links below.

Microsoft Might Have Donated To PlayStation 3 Hacker

A few days ago, George Hotz, the hacker famous for creating the first working PlayStation 3 crack, asked for donations to help cover the fees needed to hire a first class team of attorneys to help him win his legal battle against Sony. Two days later, he announced that he has reached his donations goal of $10,000 for the first round.



Today, Everything HQ website quoted “sources close to the matter” who claimed that the donations target was reached in such a short period only due to a hefty donation made by Microsoft.

Needless to say, this news haven’t been confirmed by Microsoft nor by George Hotz himself.

Oh yea, been told that. He said that that he knew more than me and his mother combined. Of course the extent of his resume is being able to hook up a video game, play a game for weeks on end, and back Obama because it's all Bush's fault.

Rejoice he doesn't live with me, or one of us would be dead.

Probably him. My youngest is seriously into the stuff that this site is about. Yet everytime we talk, he challenges me to prove my claims. If he was someone elses kid, I would have killed him by now.

You two sound old. ;]

Honestly though, "gaming" has little to do directly with being young. The average "gamer" is not a child, look for yourselves. I imagine you're both being a little bit intentionally boisterous, but if you try approaching them without the perspective of being the parent and just talk then you might have an easier time communicating. Hopefully you'll avoid fisticuffs, at least.

By the way, Spock, addiction is a very broad and subjective idea. At the very, very least, there is no clear (clinical) indication that there is such a thing as gaming or internet addiction, though there are undoubtedly relatively addictive personalities. Does this mean that their behavior is unhealthy or undesirable? Of course, it always depends on who you ask, which makes me question the usefulness of the claim to begin with.

Not being facetious, but how would you define "gamer"? I like hearing people describe it after self-identifying, the explanations vary quite a lot.
