I'm all for the developer getting the money, I pay for all my games and have over 70 games. So i hear you there. I just don't like them stepping all over our rights to do it. Make the system more mod proof. Charge for online. Maybe sony should start charging rather then going after everyone to make up there loses. what a joke. If they just ban the system, many people will go out and buy a new system. However xbox has been modable the whole time and hasn't stopped them from outselling ps3 in software. So there is no clear cut picture here. the problem is the games are to expensive to make and stores like gamestop play the biggest role. They actually play the whole role. In the mist of gaming, modding is the last thing bringing down systems besides the computer industry. It's gamestop and I wouldn't even say it's the hacking on computers, it's the point its on a computer and most people are accustom to a tv/ system setup. Thats the way I like it and so do many others.
I actully agree with what you said. this is a diverse issue with many different sides, so imo its not just a question of right or wrong. but i do understand what Anon and Geohotz are supporting, which is their user rights. but i dont agree with distribution of that information or perhaps the way Geohotz went about it.
