Homebrew developer Dark_Alex expresses confidence for 3.0

Dark_Alex is one of the most prolific homebrew developers out there. He's the man behind the incredibly popular 2.71 custom firmware, and in a recent interview, he expressed his confidence in keeping up with Sony's firmware upgrades. With 2.80 being able to launch homebrew, it seems like the coding community is ready to face the challenge of Sony's upcoming 3.0 firmware. "No matter how difficult they make it, it's just code that can be decompiled. They cannot make magic, their archives must decrypt somehow, and that way is somewhere in their code."

Because of his familiarity with the PSP hardware, Dark_Alex places some doubt on the possibility of full-speed PSX and N64 emulators: "One for the Playstation could be made if somebody dedicates a long time to it(months). And for N64...well, I do not believe that it can go full speed unless it is made for a specific game."
