Legal "The hacker hordes of Anonymous have transferred their fickle attention to Sony. They are currently attacking the company's online Playstation store in retribution for Sony's lawsuit against PS3 hacker George Hotz. A denial of service attack has temporarily taken down playstation.com."

Walmart positions the PS3 Slim at the center of a golden triangle of console video games, Internet enabled HDTVS, and rack upon rack of DVD and Blu-Ray videos.

Walmart knows what sells -
and it isn't Homebrew and it isn't the OtherOS.

Blu-Ray at Walmart is very much alive. But the PS3 Fat is close on to three years dead.

Each new Arkham City, Black Ops game, Blu-Ray rental or high-definition Netflix stream is a vote for the firmware upgrade.

I'm sorry to sound blunt, but that's got no relevence to this article.

It's not about what currently sells. It's about removing features from previously sold devices. It's about taking people to court because they hacked their own hardware. And it's about the disgraceful techniques Sony are using to undermine Holtz (this isn't a fair trial in the slightest).

I couldn't careless if XYZ now sells better than ABC just so long as the manufacturers of ABC don't remotely nuke /MY/ equipment /post/ purchase.
