Games More and more evidence is pointing towards the next Xbox requiring an always-on internet connection in order to play any games - i.e., once you lose your connection, you can't play any game at all. Three minutes after losing your connection, "your" game will suspend itself and stop playing. Microsoft's Adam Orth took to Twitter to defend this anti-consumer practice, but he did so in the most ungraceful of ways.

Sony went downhill from Yaroze.

Yaroze had complete hardware access.

PS2 Linux you had to access the hardware via special libraries higher level than the real developers had.

PS3 Linux had an hypervisor without access to 3D features, and it was later on removed from standard PS3 anyway.

PSVita is .NET only.
