An Interview With PS3 Dev AnoRelease

by ps3iso on March 15, 2013

Recently AnoRelease posted quite a PDF containing quite an extensive detailed explanation of the Ni No Kuni EXP Hack that was released a while ago by KDSBest.

AnoRelease has given me the opportunity to interview him.

Q.1) So it appears you are known by another name, what is it, who are you ?
A) I’m a Chinese hacker and yeah I’m known as different persons. I guess you have to read between the line.
I get hacks from a Team and I release them for them. They want to stay underground. This is how this works after all.
Who am I? A leaker with the permission to leak the stuff. I’m the Chinese hacker that never existed after all.

Q.2) Rumour has it that you also released the Cex > Dex method, is that true ?
A) Yeah I wasn’t able to register on PS3HaX back then, now I could and so it was released on PS3News.
A site which I don’t visit on my own, but I thought interesting news will spread anyway. I just tested the algorithm and got permission to release it.
Basically the happy (fairy tail) guy was the brain behind it. Most people in the scene should know who he is. Even if he is mostly underrated.

Q.3) Why did you release it ?
A.) Why not make it public? I asked if I can release it and was told that the owner doesn’t care if it is out there, as long as his name isn’t exposed.

Q.4) Will you be releasing anything else ?
A.) This depends on the brilliant hackers behind all this. I just say AC1D ;) .

Q.5) What do you think of the lv0 keys release ?
A.) Oh I think I know who is behind it, but of course I have no proof.
They somehow claim they were forced to release it, but how are they forced to?
So they gave it to someone else in the first hand. In my opinion it is their problem after all and I don’t believe that they didn’t want to release it.
They checked cex > dex and nothing special happened because of the Anon release maybe and saw how a release is done.

Q.6) What do you think of the PS3 scene ?
A.)I like it. A good amount of drama and epic stories. It is/was a quite impressive time so far. I can’t wait for the next gen consoles.
Sometimes it is sad how no brainers talk about the devs and it’s sad how others put them on a throne.

Q.7) What do you think about graf_chokolo ?
A.) His story is sad at the end. He is very inspiring for many hackers in the scene I guess.
No one reached his knowledge about the PS3 so far and he will always be the number one hacker in our hearts.
Many kudos for him.

Q.8) I hear you are a big fan of GeoHot, what is it you like about him ?
A.) I like it when people act dumb and go to TV. It’s like a robber ringing the bell afterwards and tell the house owner I just stole your stuff.
Like my hacker friend (happy [fairy tail] guy) always says “Hacking is an underground job after all”. I don’t know if he ever said that on a forum, but he told me often enough.
I like his humour I guess, the rap video was funny as hell. I wish he did more of them, but going on TV is not a well idea.
I heard rumours he lost his job at Facebook too. He is just too ego I guess and no team player after all.

Q.9) Will you be working on any Next Gen consoles ?
A.)If I get the chance I will of course. The PS4 Press release was awesome in my opinion. I’m a bit happy about the X86 architecture and a bit sad.
X86 is full of garbage because it grew with the time and still is backward compatible. AMD and Intel both worked that whore and that is how she looks like in my opinion.

Q.10) Is there anything you would like to add ?
A.) I would like to thank some people:
– KDSBest
– cfwprophet
– Team AC1D
– GregoryRasputin
– Pockets69
– graf
everything else I forgot of course.
– durandal
– eussNL
– naehrwert

So that’s the end of the interview, thanks for the releases and thanks for your time AnoRelease :)
