Dark_Alex is quitting development of his popular "open edition" firmware. While others may continue his work, it appears that the famed developer is moving on to other things. On his website, he notes various reasons for his departure: "One of them is the time it consumes, which i'm losing from other things. The other is related to my security. I didn't like Sony menaces to PS3 hackers. I think it is better to leave now rather than end paying the consequences."
Certainly, this is an unexpected twist in PSP development. How will the homebrew scene be affected by this loss?
