Playstation2/Sony
Reports are in that the PSP v2.0 firmware has at least one buffer overflow exploit in it, which could be used as a starting point to get arbitrary code to run. The releasing groups also try to distinguish between piracy and homebrew code:

PSP Users:
We didn't do this so you could steal from Sony and game companies.
We believe in OSS. There are plenty of amazing programs that have
been written for the PSP. Use this as a gift and not as an excuse
to steal.

Sony:
If you wanted to find us i know you could. This release wasn't
intended as a way to run pirated software on the PSP. We believe
that everyone should be able to compile their own code and run it.
Nothing is kept secret forever and I'm sure you know this.
In the end, if it wasn't us. It would be some one else.
Fighting it would be like skating up a hill. You did create the
PSP and did an amazing job.
