Games I've often harped on Apple for its policy regarding jailbreaking, but of course, Apple isn't the only company engaging in such practices. We already talked about Motorola, and now, we have Sony - already a company with a checkered past when it comes to consumer rights. As it turns out, Sony don't want you jailbreaking your their Playstation 3.

Too little time for homebrew

Before anybody really had any time to understand how things work, and do serious homebrew development, the plug was pulled. Fortunately old consoles who stayed on 3.41 will continue to work.

While somewhat understandable (homebrew on original Xbox was positive like XBMC, but it killed Sony's PSP platform), I don't like Sony's general attitude in this. So far they have either removed features (Linux, and PS2 support), or sued small companies to fight with piracy. They don't even have a cheap/free SDK for development (as in XNA for Xbox). And the device once they called a "computer" is no longer such a thing.
