I'll agree with the whole "people who create/develop tools have no obligation to release anything" but, at the same time, if they would keep there findings in private instead of showing the world like "look what I can do!"" with there tweets and blogs and what not. If they would just shut the fck up about what they find until they are ready to release (or never release) would solve the begging.

But you know what? A form of vampires. This is exactly what they want. They build their own hype. They want to show you they are better than you, and feed off of your negative energy. You think they do this for free? They want your delicious envy and impatience.

@stayhye I kind of wish it could be bounty based.

The moaners could actually contribute to something being released, and initiative could be used to give impetus to projects that need to be done. Retroarch has a bounty system for core improvements, it’s the same principle: those who contribute get results, those who code get the bounty.

@IshotJR and this is understandably that he do not want to release enything before sony can not detect it because it would close the gate to future firmwares.

And what will we come up with that we will have JB 5.55 and in a while we will not be able to play 6.0 games? It does not make sense to publish a new exploit before sony patch it or does not have the second exploit in stock.

PS4 scene is dead if you like new games. Buy Nintendo Switch or a good computer.

Don't forget mostly title releases on PC/Nintendo Switch. No need for PS4 with retarded Devs.
