Sony Pulls Exploited Super Collapse 3 from PSN

Play a different brick game
Mere days after restoring two hacked PSP titles to the PlayStation Network, Sony has had to yank another one. Super Collapse 3 is the latest release to be completely removed from the company’s digital storefront, after hackers found a way to run unsigned code through an exploit in the software.
Homebrew junkie Wololo claims that the exploit cannot be used for piracy because it only enables code to run in the “user mode” rather than at root permission. Regardless, Sony swooped to remove the offending title within 24 hours of its discovery. Bad news if you wanted to pick up a legitimate copy of Super Collapse 3, we suppose.
Could someone please point Wololo in the direction of the PlayStation Suite open beta? We're sure he could get DOOM running through that.
