PS5 has now been available for about two years, despite the well-known inventory problems that have not allowed all players to get their hands on it (for now).
As you know, even on day-one it was impossible to find any on store shelves (as availability at retailers such as Amazon is still scarce).
On the Gameshift pages we recently explained very clearly why PlayStation 5 is really so difficult to buy.
Now, however, as also reported by The Gamer , it seems that hackers have unfortunately managed to break into the “heart” of the Sony console.
Almost two years after its launch, PlayStation 5 would have been “broken”: for the uninitiated, this means that the console can run software that it would not normally be able to run . p>
Longtime gamers will remember that their PS2s were equipped with chips to play games pirate , something very similar to what happened now with PS5.
The news comes from modder Lance McDonald, who tweeted a video showing the interface of a so-called “jailbroken” PS5, which allows him to access a debug menu and download the PKG file from PS4. In the video, the modder downloads the PKG file for P.T. , which as we know is no longer available.

At the moment it is not possible to do much else on the jailbroken version, other than the fact that the change seems possible only on version 4.03 of the PlayStation 5 firmware (version 4.50 came out in December 2021, so it will be quite difficult to find a console with the old firmware to jailbreak).
Staying on the subject, an in-depth analysis of the internal components of the new PS5 models anticipates possible great news for the production of stocks .
But not only that: a few hours ago, a skilled datamine would have unveiled a tier of PlayStation Stars available only by invitation.
