It looks like this happened a week or so back as a result of the various USB key based hacks on the PlayStation 3. Quite apart from allowing pirates to circumvent copy protection, it looks like the hack has given the green light to others to delve a little deeper into the PS3’s systems and enabled at least one guy to basically get whatever Trophies he’d like.
The proof of concept video below shows the user getting all the Trophies for the latest Spider-man game without any work at all. Surely missing the point entirely – let’s hope Sony have a way of detecting this as although the software in question clearly only runs on older firmwares, what’s to stop him syncing his profile with a PS3 on the latest system software?
