20-year-old hacker George Hotz, a.k.a. geohot, has hacked the PlayStation 3.
"The hack... is significant because the PS3 was the only game console that hadn't been hacked, despite being on the market for more than three years," writes The Register's Dan Goodin. "The feat greatly expands the functionality of the box by allowing it to run unrestricted versions of Linux and a wide range of games that are currently forbidden."
"[It] took him five weeks to develop the hack using a combination of modifications to the console's hardware and software," Goodin writes.
