Games I've often harped on Apple for its policy regarding jailbreaking, but of course, Apple isn't the only company engaging in such practices. We already talked about Motorola, and now, we have Sony - already a company with a checkered past when it comes to consumer rights. As it turns out, Sony don't want you jailbreaking your their Playstation 3.

Sell apps for PS3

I kind of wish Sony just had an App store or something for the PS3. They advertised it as a computer when I bought it years ago and the lack of "PC like" functionality (like installing anything) really blows.

Imagine if the following apps could exist:
Googe Docs or some other document editing.
Video Streaming
(Netflix, Hulu, Amazon VOD, YouTube & Blockbuster)
WebKit browser (anything would be better than the stock)
Independent Games (could also make these games PSP and PSPGo compatible.)
Radio Apps (Pandora, Live.FM, iHeartRadio, etc)
OtherOS (GoogleTV anyone?)

Unfortunately Sony is too focused on the Sony Market, which I don't really care for.
