At this point I doubt it. It's quite obvious to most that there is a market for these dongles, so I'm sorry but I don't believe anybody capable implementing the features of the DRM dongles will do so for free. Money and power can corrupt even the greatest of men.

That may be true, but we have no way of finding out. As has been said, you have options in the 360 scene, if you pay, you are paying for the convenience to get things done easier... and I see no problem with that.

True, but you have the option to do that, or buy the kit.
Now I will say that I don't think the ps3 scene will change, and it's a sad, sad state. If these things weren't DRM-laden I really would have no problem with them, but the ****ing irony of the DRM dongle situation is too much for me to agree with.
*SIGH* I imagine pretty soon all homebrew releases will stop altogether. I guess I'll eventually just update the f/w and start buying used games off of ebay and amazon.... no way in hell am I directly contributing to line the pockets of sony or gamestop/eb.
