What Sony did was wrong. Imagine you bought a Subaru STI and 2 years later Subaru comes to your house and uninstalls the turbo out of it. That's what these people stances are. We bought the PS3 and we own it. We're not renting the console off of Sony.

    On the other hand, if they're going to attack Sony than by all means attack them. Don't attack people who are simply in the middle of this **** storm and have nothing to do with any of it nor give a **** about it.

    On the other foot, who gives a ****. Go get some fresh air, it'll be back soon enough.
    You know there are rumors that they took away the OtherOs feature was because geohot was trying to use it to jailbreak the ps3

    I'd bet money that's why they did take it away. However, that's Sony's fault not the consumers. I'm one of the people who this outage is affecting and I still don't mind what they did. IMO the attacks were completely warranted barring they didn't do it to steal CC numbers and information.

    The really sad thing is that Anon believes they are helping gamers. Since when is taking away online play for extended periods of time helpful to gamers? Just a bunch of terrorists.
    They're inconveniencing gamers but helping consumers. If people didn't take a stand towards Sony it would continue to get worse. Losing OtherOS had no affect on me and I still agree with the attacks.
