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.

We do understand the frustration a small number of consumers may feel at SCE's decision to provide an upgrade to the firmware to disable the Linux operating system...


Uh, then why do it? Lack of engineers?? If they understand how annoying it is, then why not explain it better? It's just not good enough to brush everyone off with random hints at "security concerns", whatever that means. (And BTW, just because it only affects a "small" number of users shouldn't justify it, those people should still count for something.)

"upgrade"? more like downgrade

And isn't it technically called a "downgrade" when you remove something??
