Police in Johannesburg, South Africa recently broke up a ring of pirates...PlayStation 3 pirates! According to the Joburg po-po, the raid took place at a residential property in Parktown, Johannesburg, and jailbreak devices used to "circumvent the security features on PS3 consoles to facilitate the playing of pirated PS3 games" were seized. According to the police, this is the first PS3 circumvention arrest in the world.

Various state of the art computers, circumvention software packages, jailbreak USB devices, PS3 consoles and hard drives were seized. In addition fake PS2 games, original PS3 games, believed to be used as masters and documentation were seized.

The South African police have one man in custody, and he's scheduled for a bail appearance in the next couple days.
