Sony and GeoHot have officially settled their differences. A notice on the PlayStation Blog notes that Sony Computer Entertainment America and George Hotz have reached a settlement in the case. No monetary terms were mentioned.
In the statement, GeoHot says that he never intended to make piracy easier, and that he’s happy that this whole episode is behind him.
SCEA says much the same, while at the same time saying its motivation for the legal action was to “protect [its] intellectual property and [its] consumers.”
And thus we close the door on this sad chapter in history
