Games I think we need to start a digital rights category or something (the next version of OSNews will have it, for sure), because we have yet another article about this subject. After Sony removed the Other OS feature from the PlayStation 3, a European PlayStation 3 owner successfully secured a partial refund from Amazon under the European Sale of Goods Act. Sony has now retaliated, stating it is not going to reimburse retailers.

Clearly not just Sony..

However when Microsoft and Nintendo do the same thing, nobody cares it seems..

You have to wonder if this whole Sony hate crusade is driven by Microsoft's army of viral marketers...

Nintendo removed MP3 support (much more useful than OtherOS)

Microsoft removed XBLA Autodownload of demos in NXE

Seems nobody blinked an eyelid over those.. So you have to wonder why people appear to care about OtherOS (which before it was removed, was called "gimped" by the community).

Hypocrites...

But... did nintendo announced MP3 play on their console on launch ?

Did also Microsoft announced on the launch day that the console bring XBLA donwloads ? I don't think so.

Sony announced and was one of the point of sales, the LINUX support.

Gimped OtherOS support sucks but it's better than amputated OtherOS support.
