Games The PlayStation 3. For a long time, it was a rather well-protected machine, and it wasn't until early this year that George Hotz finally managed to crack the thing wide open. In essence, it was now possible to jailbreak the PlayStation 3 like you would jailbreak your iPhone, but of course, Sony wasn't pleased. With the recent firmware update, v3.50, Sony went from surgical precision to the battle axe - they blocked all non-Sony USB devices controllers (and a lot of PS2 > PS3 controller adapters) from working.

As much as I like Sony products in general and PS3 especially, I'm getting tired of morons in charge of PS3 software.

- The online store interface is even worse than iTunes.
- You can't get to the online store to buy stuff unless you spend a hour almost every month to install an update that removes features and has a good chance of breaking your console (in which case Sony takes no responsibility what so ever).
