Sony granted PS3 modchip dongle ban Down Under

See you in court, mate

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Sony's Australian wing has successfully asked the Federal Court to ban the importation and sale of the PS Jailbreak USB dongle.

Local mod chip sellers OzModChips, Mod Supplier and Quantronics, both of whom were offering the PS Jailbreak gadget, will have to stop doing so and hand over their stock of the devices to Sony.

The ban is time-limited: Sony has until 31 August - next Tuesday - to persuade the Court to implement the ban permanently. To do so, it will have to show that the dongle goes beyond the console modifications made legal by a 2005 Supreme Court ruling.

The PS Jailbreak dongle is claimed to allow PS3 owners to rip games to external hard drives from where the titles can subsequently be loaded and played without the original disc being present. ®
