It's no more hacking than finding a key in a door is picking a lock. Buy or rent the games cheapskates. If you want to modify your PS3 to be a linux workstation it is your right, you own the hardware, but don't expect Sony to let you use their intellectual property (software) to run cracked games. Try looking at both sides of the argument for a change. I understand games shouldn't cost $60, but they do eventually cost $20 after a year or two. You don't have to own the games right away.
