A new rumor has surfaced that Microsoft donated a large amount of cash to Geohot as he attempts to tackle Sony over the hacking of the PS3. This is very much just a rumor. However, it comes from one of those supposed 'clouse sources' who must remain anonymous. Although, the fact that Geohot got all that he wanted and more within 2 days, seems to suggest that he had some pretty big donations and quickly! In his most recent interview, Geohot himself seemed in very good spirits and revealed he got all that he needed to cover his legal costs and more (SEE HERE). So what do you think, did MS really sneakily throw him a heft amount of cash?
It seems there are quite a few desperate websites out there trying to grab traffic by reporting that Microsoft made "a huge donation" to the legal defense fund of George Hotz (Geohot). PSX-SCENE has confirmed directly with Geohot that this story is totally FALSE.
No such donation was made!!
