GAPS!!! that like saying PC users are not entitled to have dedicated servers. But it's true. These "standards" that PC gamers feel that they are entitled to just like on any other platform is not a right. It's a privilege just like driving. If developer decides to take support out for something they have every right to do so. And the judge is right, members had the option to not download the patch. The only thing is if you downloaded the patch, you wouldn't be able to play online. So its actually more of what's more important to you. Having a second OS on your PS3 or playing online?
True sony advertised the Original PS3 as being able to do linux. But the terms of agreement says they can make the change to the software when ever they want. You may own the equipment, but you don't own sony's firmware that comes with it. You are by law allowed to make changes to the software, but you void your warranty.
Now comes the argument well what if you installed the update and didn't realize that it would take it away? Well in that case there is no one to blame but you because the updates from what i've seen give you a change log before you agree to the updates, and also that information is on the ps3 website.
