This week, we’ve already had the discovery of the PS3 ‘root key’, but now it seems to be the PSP’s time in the hacking spotlight. Videos doing the rounds today show an ISO loader running on the previously hack-proof PSPgo. Sony’s battel with piracy on the PSP is well known, and the PSPgo was an attempt to counter the attempts.
And Sony has succeed in stopping the hacking attempts until now. A hacker going by the name of Wololo has got a homebrew ISO loader working on the console, which means games ripped from UMD – or downloaded illegally – can be played.
The proof? The game being played in the video is Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep, a game that was only released on UMD and therefore not playable on the PSPgo.
