Games You'd almost forget it, but a few weeks ago, the Playstation 3 was hacked wide open - like a pristine cave deep in the world of Minecraft. This has let out all sorts of nasties, and now Sony is trying to clean up the mess. For once, I'm in full agreement with their position.

Best way to avoid console being breached. Provide a way for it to be run with gaming disabled forever.

This is also useful at end of life of the console it can be recycled into something else other than a game machine.


End of life eh?

I hate to break it to ya, but when you're no longer interested in playing your PS3 games, I'll be buying your old console and pile of games for ~$20 at a yard sale so I can catch up on some cheap entertainment in my spare time.

So, if the console's end of life means it will never be able to legally play games again, then it will have very little resale value for people like me. Of course, Sony would like it that way I suspect.

I've got no time for online crap like PSN anyway - and when I sit down to play a game, it'll either be with my kids in the living room, or some solo game that I can play for an hour and turn off when I'm bored.
