Maybe we can get some awesome apps coming down the vita pipeline VIA this exploit but it still requires a game specific exploit which Sony has taken down. If we waited just a bit longer maybe someone could have had figured out a way to get more control of the hardware or a way to load it via usb with a network sploit... Who knows. It could easily be patched out of newer firmwares.
I totally agree, i do believe that certain things should be kept quiet and that these devs that find/create these exploits, should learn to trust less people, now there are some leakers that do good when the leak something, but in this case, the leaker did it for fame and not for the PS Vita scene, so this leak in my eyes is totally wrong.
Also the whole bullsh*t crap about not releasing something because it may lead to piracy is F*CKING ANNOYING, piracy is inevitable, a dev saying that he wont release something because it will lead to piracy, is like the SOPA politicians wanting to police the internet.
Piracy happens and it will always happen, it will never stop no matter what anyone tries to do, so instead of persecuting those of us that don't pirate games, start to get over the fact that by not releasing something, you are not fighting piracy, but persecuting those that do not pirate.
To the leakers, if you are going to leak something, make sure what you are leaking is for the benefit of the scene, make sure what you are leaking isnt a work in progress, make sure what you are leaking wont end up harming the scene.
