But the fact is Sony are going to choose security over Linux any day of the week.

Still better than the alternative of mass piracy. Do you really want to take the chance of people pirating so much games that developers stop supporting it? It happened to the PSP and it can definitely happen to the PS3.

 

It happened to the Xbox 360 too!  And the DS!  Oh wait.

Keep dreaming my friend. XD MKV support would be awesome though. Now I am dreaming too. XD


I'm fine with removing the feature to cut out piracy, but I want a something in return for what they are taking away.



Sony want to make money by selling art, Nintendo want to make money by selling fun, Microsoft want to make money.

  • MKV video support, This one i need the most
  • Multi region PS1 and PS2 support on backwards compatable models i can use my PS2 on this but it is a cool thing
  • ipod support Already there , ages ago , press triangle and select "Show All"
  • A direct port of Firefox used on Linux platforms with full flash support, better GUI, and a vast array of plug-ins yes
  • NTFS HDD support Why? you think since they want to remove it , they'll go back to it?

If you read ToS there is small print on reserving the right to change blah blah blah, and reserving the right to change, PSN terms of service at will. In fact you have no right to PSN, Sony could remove service if they wanted to.

With the only real disadvantage being that you can't use PSN I don't see how Sony are liable. Besides independently you can still do everything as advertised. You can use linux, you can use PSN. Just not from the same HDD anymore, the console still supports other OS as stated only its most current version of firmware did not. 

What about developers who drop support on online games even whilst they're being sold @ retail? (like Nascar 09)


I'm pretty sure if you looked into it further nothing they're doing is illegal. Plus not enough people care. I certainly don't.


Not true in the EU mate.  EU law overides any TOS or EULA.  I was sold a machine that played online games and was open platform.  Sony are taking away the open platform part (which they said was ok here: http://www.playstation.com/ps3-openplatform/index.html )

EU law clealry states that:

be fit for the purpose which the consumer requires them and which was made known to the seller at the time of purchase."

Well Sony have just broken that agreement and I want something in return.

I happy to have PS3 to not be open platform anymore to stamp out piracy, but I am not happy to have my rights pissed over.

I will be taking this to trading standards, but before I do I would like some voices behind me - Help me out http://usersvssony.blogspot.com/ - http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=110549712296723

Wht are u fighting over something so useless. U want to use OS get a computer man. I could care less about the OS I got the ps3 because if gaming u want both get a 2500$ computer that's all it takes. All I see is pirates fighting for these which makes me sick



Around the Network

I know, I know and so do I, but about demanding something back... one does not simply walk into Mordor, you know?



Nintendo is selling their IPs to Microsoft and this is true because:

SO basically you could care less that they are removing the feature you just want something out of it because other people are getting screwed over? Makes........sense...........



i was looking into linux today. it actually looks really cool. It also has a pretty fast browser. Im kind of upset they are taking this away.

It still does everything that was made known to the seller at time of purchase. Not in quite the same way, but your argument would never stand up in any form of legal case. Under Sonys terms of service they have the legal right to drop support for PSN, and change PSN at will, and that is all they have done. Your hardware has not been changed, you can still used it as stated. 

Also, haven't all the OtherOS supporting PS3s been discontinued? This certainly won't help your case, lol.
