    I honestly could not believe what I seen when I first watched it. He’s lost it.

    I can’t wait for Kevin Butler’s video response. :)

    Butler’s response will be spouting out the PS3 root key in morse code.

    Taking on Sony in a rap battle… He is aware that Sony Music Entertainment has dozens (probably even a couple hundred) of music artists right?

    Absolutely spectacular, I particularly enjoyed his use of props to help get his point across.

    We can only hope that this is the first of many.

    you can tell his anxiety and frustration over the matter by his expression alone,looks like a spoiled kid in anger.
    by this you can tell Sony may already have the upper hand eventually

    if this is really Geohot, I hope someone who sees him IRL beats him to a pulp. I’d do it at least :/
    I doubt he’s in Sweden however.

    Wow, he really thinks he is all that doesn’t he?

    A good beating will see him right I reckon.

    I also just realised why the rap video was so short at 0:54; his mom was likely calling him down for dinner.

    That’s hip yo.

    ^^^ there are even more Xbox 360 games hacked.. xobx lost too…

    Also that guy should get sued just for stupid ass video.

  24. mortiferus

    Silly little fanboys… Sony is grasping at straws here. They will not stop the hackers, if it’s not Geohot it will be someone else. Someone will always find a way to hack in, period.

  25. sony_sucks

    360 games always outsell ps3. piracy not problem on 360.

    dont even need to hack ps3. just download games from pirate bay! lol

    Hey, I was told it was guys like this who become the next Steve Jobs and Bill Gates.

    I guess the Bombcast isn’t always right. The rap is clever cus it’s actually not bad. But this is just the most adolescent thing he could have done.

    Be clever Hotzey.

    This guy’s an asshole. I would punch him right in the face.

    @sony_sucks: I feel your fear. Sony is closing the gap on MS… You should let it go. I was anti-PS3 at 1st mainly because Kutaragi was bashing the “xbox 1.5″ and was a real douche. But I’ve got a PS3 a couple months ago and it’s great. Still have my 360 and it’s great too. imagine if MS would have no competition, they could do what they want and inflate the price of everything and become lazy. Competition is good for innovation and price.

    This guys not an asshole, and whats with all the talk of punching? We’re a bunch of guys sitting at computer screens.

    I could threaten to punch, but in reality I’d need to take off my bi-focals, bring my asthma pump and tell my mum to get the Dettol and nosebleed bandages ready.

    The guy is as much of a kid as us really. And this I don’t think will be a decision he looks back on and can be satusfied it was sensible. I am sure he will look back and be proud though.

    I haven’t seen the video yet (I don’t think it’s worth the bother), but I’m pretty sure this will help Sony ridiculing Hotz in the courts.

    I think he likes to touch himself at night.

  36. xxJPRACERxx

    @No_PUDding: You’re right. This asshole is just a kid. He act without thinking about the consequences and just think about himself.

  37. Naaame

    Comes across as extremely smug, and slightly mad, I can see it in his grin. I don’t like this :(

    Sony should hire Geohot and failoverflow, that way everyone wins!

    “Exhibited this in the court room” (0:47)
    It would be hilarious if they did.

    Categorising…

    Internet-Based Sony Fans: Likely to respond with violence (in the form of punching) when and/or if they are presented with a person of superior intellect to their own, or simply someone cleverer than they. This violence will most frequently take the form of punching – in spite of the fact that Internet denizens are generally about as able to throw a punch as they could throw a caber. Which is to say: Not at all.

    Thanks Internet-Based Sony Fans!

    In all seriousness, you can’t blame me for this, I’m just telling you what I’m seeing here. Perhaps you’ll realise that most of you are looking more foolish than GeoHot, now. :p

  43. TheWulf

    That said, I have to respect GeoHot for doing this for the lulz. It’s hilarious. The guy knows how to have a good time, have a laugh, and he knows how to not take himself too seriously.

    That’s more than can be said for most people. It was funny. He’s certain to realise that as much as anyone else. He was making a spectacle of himself for the benefit of others – likely to point out how completely ridiculous Sony is being. And frankly, I find Sony’s reaction to all this far more ridiculous than this rap.
