Actually, from Sony's point of view, they are not going to be losing much money at all. No one will stop producing games for them because no one suffers any real discernible losses from piracy. At very least they can only speculate losses and have no means of realizing any real numbers.drummodino said:How about you stop bitching about the ps3 and look at it from sony's point of view. Sure you may prefer the other options and not play hacked games, but how are they to know that? Piracy is gonna be costing them thousands if not millions of dollars and they are taking measures to minimise those losses. If your so pissed about the ps3 features and/or games get a PC or 360.
You have no way of knowing the numbers of people who use CFW to enhance their gaming experience without actually stealing anything. Every CFW that has shown up for the PS3 has always started without having the ability to play backup games. Then others come along and change that. But you shouldn't support kindergarten politics, it hurts everyone.Hardcore_gamer said:I am sick of hackers trying to hide behind this bullshit.runedeadthA said:OT: In the firmware hacking I support the hackers all the way. 'Tis a little thing called freedom
Hackers are not some brave freedom fighters trying to overthrow the evil corporate forces that prevent people around the world from having fun, they are just some self entitled dipshits that use lame excuses like "freedom" to do as they please no matter how many rules or laws they brake.
Yes, there are a handful of people that only use stuff like homebrew for home made games and some other ok software, but those are in the minority.
OT: Realistically, I don't think anyone didn't see this coming. I am frankly surprised that it took so long. By doing this they will actually bolster sales though, so you can't blame them. There are a bunch of people who will go out and buy a second system just to safely play the handful of titles that are worth it.
I honestly wish these companies would stop attacking the people they that buy their products.
As a side note: This isn't about cheating and working your way up on the game boards, it's about custom firmware. It's not even about PIRACY. Sony isn't going to lose money if a game gets pirated. Every game ripping group out there says the same thing, if you like the game buy it.
And what if you already own a legitimate copy of the game? Why isn't it like emulation where you are allowed to do it as long as you own a physical copy of the game? Too hard I guess.
