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.

Ownership or Rental?

If I'm paying $300 I own it and can do with it whatever I like.

If it's a rental service as their actions imply then they have no business charging $300 just as a cable or satellite company doesn't make you buy the receiver outright. Thus I have no right to modify it.

They need to figure this shit out and do it fast.
