And like you implied at the top of your post, any dates uttered by those people are just pure conjecture. Something they wave in front of us to keep our interest up. They've already shown with full clarity that they don't give a crap about keeping such promises.
Not only have they not kept their promises about timing, but to my knowledge they have still not delivered a single unit to the retailers (apart from initial samples). They now say that the goods are on the way, but we've no more reason to believe that now than their many promises that they would send the stuff 'tomorrow', repeated day after day...
That said, I'm still waiting for my supplier to get their shipment, and still plan to buy the unit I ordered from them. Regardless of support and regardless of any promises by the makers of it (which I don't take very seriously), I still want this unit for its historical value.
Whatever else we say about it, this has changed history for the PS3
(and even for this site, with new online user records every day).

Indeed it did, and anyone now expecting fabulous PS3 homebrews overnight will be sorely disappointed.Quote:
Only it took a little while ;).
This will take a lot of time, since none of us are as yet familiar with coding for this platform, except perhaps for those who worked with OtherOS Linux, and that is in fact an entirely different platform than a PS3 without a Linux OS. Many sources produced by them intended for programs to run under Linux will be virtually useless without the OS support functions used in their programming, and it will take a long time to come up with working homebrew replacements for all of those.
Still, the Linux stuff is one of the main sources of both valid and legal programming info and examples for the PS3, so I think we will all be studying that stuff quite a lot in times ahead.
