Games Sony has responded to the recent cracking of the Playstation3, and the company claism that they can fix the issue - which ought to be impossible considering the scope of the hack. "We are aware of this, and are currently looking into it," Sony said, "We will fix the issues through network updates, but because this is a security issue, we are not able to provide you with any more details."

Well if Sony would be to give users right to run on PS3 whatever any developer freely created the console would cost ~ $500 and that's after last postchristmas %50 discount.

Well it wouldn't showup on market at all, as the whole business model wouldn't work at all.

I think that the only model that is fair and would cater for developement costs would be subscriber oriented one (alas to digital tv) where one would only lease devices (along with access to some game channels) for a monthly fee.

On the other hand they could fankly declare their ROI requrements and for example commit themselves to some level of units sold after which the platform would be opened for some homebrew developement.
