Sony’s PS3 Engineers had invited George Hotz to meet them

Posted By | On 01st, May. 2012

It’s been a year since the PS3 hacking fiasco where George Hotz had cracked the system open by exposing the Metldr key, and thereby inviting the wrath of Sony’s lawyers.

We have some more fantastic new information courtesy of David Kushner, the author of fantastic books like Masters of Doom. He had interviewed Hotz and published it on The New Yorker, and I would say that it’s an incredible read. So do check it out.

One interesting thing to come out of that is how Sony’s engineers contacted Hotz and asked him how he defeated their system. Hotz met with them last year at their headquarters in California and described the feeling when entering the building.

He was “nervous but curious”.

“Hotz walked into the building eating from a box of Lucky Charms, dropping marshmallows across the lobby,” Kushner wrote.

He was greeted by a roomful of PS3 engineers who, in Hotz’ words, were “respectful” in their treatment of him.

“If there were going to be lawyers there I was going to be the biggest asshole ever,” he recalled.
