"Each new Arkham City, Black Ops game, Blu-Ray rental or high-definition Netflix stream is a vote for the firmware upgrade.

I'm sorry to sound blunt, but that's got no relevance to this article.
It's not about what currently sells.
I couldn't care less if XYZ now sells better than ABC just so long as the manufacturers of ABC don't remotely nuke /MY/ equipment /post/ purchase.

It is relevant to the power of Anonymous - and of the geek - to bring about any meaningful change.

48 million consoles.

69 million PSN accounts. 17 million PlayStation Home social networking accounts. 4 million MOVE controllers.

This is the constituency that matters to Sony - and the PS3 - sans the OtherOS, SACD and PS2 emulation - seems to serve it very, very well.

You're comments weren't about a meaningful change though. It was just highlighting what one supermarket sells in preference to other products. It's completely irrellevent.

Plus it's not the just of a few anonymous script kiddies to change the buying habits of a global community of media consumers.
