sony be more like microsoft
All I have read over the last few weeks is sony banging on about all the hacks and exploits will ruin the online experience for the legitimate gamer.
"Circumvention devices and game piracy damage our industry and can potentially injure the online experience for you, our loyal PlayStation customers, via hacks and cheats," Sony stated. "By identifying PlayStation 3 systems that breach our guidelines and terminating their ability to connect to PlayStation Network, we are protecting our business and preserving the honest gameplay experiences that you expect and deserve."
Microsoft on the other hand with the kinect device are going the other way and saying right ok maybe there is a market here for the kinect device to be ported over to the pc....lets embrace this.
I am quite sure there are many ps3 users out there who use their jailbroken ps3 without going online, I am one of them I cant stand playing the games online as 9/10 even on local servers they tend to laag alot so i stick to my pc for online gaming.
So why dont sony embrace all the "haxs" and say okie you want a n64 emu fine here are the tools.
you want linux back fine here are the tools.
But like microsoft, maybe charge a royalty fee. The talented devs can have the tools for free but you have to sell the software/apps for a small fee and sony has a small percentage of the fee.
sony could even develop a custom firmware that does not allow online gameplay. IDK I just think sony are going way too far. No matter what they do....courts, police, raids etc their will always be hackers out there looking at ways to piss big companys off.
