Games You'd almost forget it, but a few weeks ago, the Playstation 3 was hacked wide open - like a pristine cave deep in the world of Minecraft. This has let out all sorts of nasties, and now Sony is trying to clean up the mess. For once, I'm in full agreement with their position.

Of course, Sony is a massive hypocrite here, since apparantly it's okay sto steal from consumers (OtherOS) but not the other way around.

At this point I think you write shit like this to get people to click through the comments. I mean really in what fucking world do you live in where Sony stole the OtherOS feature from user? Like the hackers and cheaters those who needed or wanted the OtherOS feature had the choice of not upgrading their firmware and giving up the PSN if it was that important to them.

Oh fuck I clicked through the comments so yeah you win this round. ):(

What if Ford came to your house and remove the cupholders from your car - and Ford did this worldwide? And then, you would only be allowed to keep the cupholders if you agreed not to use public roads any longer?

So if you pay for something, and somebody(doesn't matter who) takes it away from you, is that not theft? I think it just may be.

I think he is trying to point out the fact that, consumers purchased something that was then taken away. For some people it was like buying a phone to make phone calls, and then the company taking the feature to make a phone call away.

really... a choice? what choice?

a) i run games and i can kiss OtherOS goodbye
b) i run games, but at the same time my game console becomes brick who can only dream newer games? every new game comes with firmware update, which is mandatory before you play. ahhh, and even with old ones i can kiss multiplayer goodbye

i bought all-in-one machine (just like sony used to brag first 2 years), that can run only one after specified? you gotta be moronic sony fanboy. until they had no games they were so eager to spew the all-in-one bull,... which was taken away as soon as they had enough games to sustain advertising. sad truth... it wasn't taken away because of hackers, but to lower costs of sustaining hypervisor drivers

and this banning tells even more of the sorrow story how it sucks to be sony customer. in first 4 years sony did exactly 0, zilch, nada for the people who were complaining about online cheating. but, ... surprise... when their revenue comes into question, here we go.

i was a long time sony playstation fan, owned all so far... but, ps3 is last sony product i bought in my life. even games... (i buy whole lot of them and i used to buy all new to support developers) if they are sony made, i wait and buy used one, i only buy new from non sony companies.
