Geohot Delivered Hard Drives, DID NOT Flee To South America
Posted on Thursday, March 24 @ 01:07:07 PST by Daniel BischoffAs annoying and stupid as the entire situation is, the drama between George "Geohot" Hotz and Sony continues to heat up. In an industry that regularly sets fire to itself over minutia, the legal battle between one hacker and and the PlayStation empire is about to burn down like Chicago.
The most recent rumors included incomplete hard drive submissions and a swift getaway by Hotz. IGN originally reported that Hotz delivered subpoened hard drives with key components missing. None of that really ended up being true. Nothing publishes a news story without fact-checking faster than a scandal, IGN.
Geohot's attorney Stewart Kellar later set the story straight:
The "integral components" SCEA is talking about are stock controller cards, not the hard drives themselves. The neutral subsequently had to explain to SCEA the form and function of hard drive controller cards. Those controller cards have since been provided to the neutral so the point is moot.Does anyone else get the sense that someone is laying a base for a counter-suit on the basis of emotional distress?
