Jailbreak vs. Sony
Hello dear Community!
Here a bit fo my Story:
(Just my Opinion, a bit to read, who want's to ;-))
I play Viode and Computergames since over 20 years and after that much experience with games and hardware I must say, what Sony is doing is redicolous!
I get angry, when I brwose through some forums where some morons wright: "Why are some guys crying about the loss of the linux feature? they didn't use it anyway!"
That Opinion is just out of the mouth of an ignorant moron,.. why? Because The Linux feature was the only way to make the PS3 a REAL multiemdia device!
And the same morons forget, that Sony told everyone (especially after there was the big discussion why the PS3 is that much expensive!) thatthe PS3 is also fpr those customers, who are interested in multimedia.
And remember the "This is living!" Commercial? In my Opinion it is not living to have to switch from PS3 to PC just becuase Sonys so called "multimediaconsole" can't read mkv (in example). The Place where my cosnole stand is much more comfortable then the Place where my PC is. So I could redecorate my home, just to change it, but "is this living?" To do so, just because I have a Ferrari like Console (PS3) which is downgraded by Sony itself to a Fiat 500 (nothing againts a 500, it is to show the difference)?
So my 5 cent on this: The PS3 couldn't read divx-files from the beginning. Then Linux was removed. And there you have a 350$ to 600$ (depend on the time you bought it) device with a so called (powerfull) cellchip and a BluRay drive which can't do that much more then the xbox360.
To come back to todays status: Unfortunatly I found out about your community too late. So I have to wait till jailbreak founds a Solution.
The last updates of Sonys firmware are just redicolous, Instead of improving the Mediaplayer of the PS3 or Improving the Browser or make the PS3 able to read ntfs formated HDDs, they focus on 3D movies the "wannabe nintendo wii"-PS3move and last bot not least to close every little door, window and hole, some bad bad Software Pirates could use! (yes and I have the boogeyman under my bed! X-D)
(About 3D: A 3D-Television is fu***ng expensive. The "normal" and good LCD and Plasmas just arrived at a affordable price! So that 3D feature is MAYBE interesting in 3-5 Years!...And in this time SOny will maybe be out of The Console Market like Sega was about 10-11 Years ago)
Come on Sony! The Homebrew Community just helps to make the PS3 be the multimediadevice it should be! Even Microsoft and Nintendo are accepting, that there are Modchips for theyre Consoles.
But does Microsoft sell less Hardware? No! Since the Toime Sony removed the Linux-support from the PS3 Micrsoft sold more consoles (again!)
So what I found here is fantastic homebrew stuff which is also already nice working. Like a SNES Emulator! So Sony isn'T able (or just doesn't want to) to improve it's Mediaplayer? Maybe there is also a perosn who programs a vlc-like player for PS3 homebrew? ;-)
Sony can keep fighting against ps3jailbreak but in the end it will just be, that people are upset and and they will buy thyre hardware and games somewhere else!
I already know, people who say: "If Sony works against the customers and just wants lot of money and nothing else, then I will buy my next hardware somewhere else!"
So to the community: Keep On, you are doing are great work! Sony just behaves silly!
Couldn't have said it any better. You are so damn right. :)
Bro just **** sony in the ass.
currently it is more that sony ****s us in the ass. i think a lot of people have bought the ps3 (even the ps3 costs a lot!) because of the good experiences with ps1 and ps2 and because sony promised us a multimadiadevice. o.k. we could have arguments now, and some people would say, it is multimedia, because it has a browser and it can play games, dvd and bluray movies and movies in divx-format.

i think it is the fault from sony itself, that there is jailbreak. if sony would develope more features for the ps3, like a proper movieplayer, or support homebrew without the need to use a tool like jailbreak, less people would be interested in jailbreaking theire ps3.
my consequence is: if i can make more out of the ps3 by using jailbreak, i wil use it, if sony stops it fine, that is the last time a bought a console (which mean also games and additional hardware) from them.
I have had little to no interest in my ps3 until this exploit was discovered. The machine really isn't that wonderful, It's the homebrewers and dev's that are the real make or break for this system imho. You're going to get the best information from here
