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.

It makes no sense.
If you buy a PS3, you buy a gameconsole! It's a closed computer to play videogames on.
I like the games that are being offered for the PS3 so I have a PS3.
I know it's a closed computer with 1 purpose (gaming) and that i have to pay a little bit more for the games then the same game on PC.

And it's the same with the XBOX systems from MS.
And they too try to prevent people of jailbreaking (closing people's accounts on live). Why don't I read something about that on osnews?

It so simple: play along with Sony and get all the functionality Sony intended for the PS3 or do whatever you want, but don't expect all the functionalities and don't blame Sony for your own actions.
Why don't the jailbreakers sue the company who markets those jailbreaking USB-keys, because of lost functionality?
It's like buying a fuel saving system for your car and it breaks your engine and then blaming the garage who repairs your car by removing the fuel saving system.

Solution: Buy 2 PS3's and jailbreak one and keep the other intact.
