The only reason Sony is the one getting beat senseless by a bunch of hypocrites is because Sony only JUST got compromised with their software which is after the whole jailbreaking iPhone being legal fiasco and they decided to attack Geo head on.
M$ has pulled out every possible stop to prevent JTAGs.
Nintendo has brought plenty of Wii-chip creators to court, just like Sony brought Geo to court. In fact, selling Wii mod chips in the US is illegal.
Yet, I don't see any mass movement to try and hack or "bring down" Nintendo or MS.
It's the blind leading the blind here. It isn't "sweet justice" like you claim.
Guess who can't play video games online?
You'd say "those loosers who bought a PS3".
Meanwhile it's just people who play video games like you, me, and practically anyone else on this website for the most part.
Video gamers, the consumers, the people that actually are what the industry is based on, are the ones that can't play the games they paid for. And you call it "sweet justice."
So very sad. Yet bystanders like you and a lot of other "Sony-haters" sit idly by thinking that everything that Sony has done - every last single action, own to the very last lawsuit and functionality removal - wouldn't be done by whatever corporation you align yourself to or "think highly of". If profits are in jeopardy, you honestly think that no other corporation wouldn't do the SAME exact thing that Sony has done? Hah.
I probably look like a blatant Sony fanboy by now, but at this point I really don't care. I think it's horrible what's been happening. I'm not affected by it in anyway really for the most part, but when I see someone complaining about how they can't play Portal 2 co-op for example which is HALF the damn game and then I see a post about how it's "sweet justice"
that this is all happening.... I can't help but get riled up.Edited by OmegaNemesis28 - 4/27/11 at 1:14am
