You decided to go for a closed system and are very mean and aggressive in keeping it closed. You also took away the linux console to keep the kiddies occupied. It's simple, look at your kids, if you take away all their "toys" it's not like that will stop them from playing. They will just continue to play with things you won't like, kinda like your keys, your jewelery etc.
By the same extension, but public has embraced android and it's what's saving your mobile division. You don't lock down your bootloader like motorola, and you've swapped to android. You don't force people to update to "your" firmware by withholding products and services.
Sony, please grow up and learn from your mistakes and your successes. We want to like you, we really do. You just gotta stop being mean and grouchy.
And MS doesn't do the same thing with XBOX? Nintendo doesn't do the same thing with their devices either? Pfft. Seriously you have no clue what your talking about. None. Don't even get me started with Apple and their closed ecosystem.
The only difference is the fact Sony had the guts to do something about it. Don't even get me started on "its my hardware I can do what ever I want with it" because again that's dead wrong. When you buy and use a PS3 you are agreeing to a term of service - don't like that term of service? Don't buy the machine. That simple. This is nothing new MS has the same stance with their Xbox.
