Games I think we need to start a digital rights category or something (the next version of OSNews will have it, for sure), because we have yet another article about this subject. After Sony removed the Other OS feature from the PlayStation 3, a European PlayStation 3 owner successfully secured a partial refund from Amazon under the European Sale of Goods Act. Sony has now retaliated, stating it is not going to reimburse retailers.

Same thing here.

Back in 2004, I bought the PS2 Linux kit, which I barely used, but it did allow almost full access to the hardware, even the graphics processor.

I was then disappointed to see the level that Sony has offering to support Linux on the PS3 and never bought one always hoping they would change their mind.

Now, if I ever end up buying a new games console, it will most likely be a XBox 360. We all know how Microsoft is, but at least they provide proper support to the Indie developers and homebrew community.
