Bleh; the Xbox Live vs PSN is purely opinion. As an owner of both a 360 and PS3, I trashed my Xbox Live account as I thought it was horrible. MAG is so much fun, and I'm mostly focusing on that title in favor of PSN. This was before the new XBL dashboard though, so I don't know if the experience has changed since that addition.

PS3's online gameplay is garbage compared to Xbox live. Yet another failure by Sony who care about their bottom dollar first, and the customer second. This same basic principal has been shown many times over the last decade.

With that said, I'd take the PS3's eye candy over the Xbox's mediocre graphics any day -- as what good is a next gen console if it has last gen graphics?. The dilema we must face...

/rant.

Continue on.
Lol you mean you've never encountered a kid on XBL with a JTAG'ed Xbox cheating and hacking? I had XBL for a month and faced enough cheating for me to sell the 360

There are always exceptions. Such as, you aren't allowed to drive four-wheelers on main roads, or ride Segways on sidewalks (UK). Just because I can drive a car on the main roads, or ride a scooter on the sidewalks, does that mean I have every right to take a four-wheeler on the interstate? Or embarrassingly ride a Segway on the sidewalk?
No, but if there's a law that lets you do one thing while simultaneously banning the other that is the exact same bar the device it works on, someone is bound to notice.

You can "bet" all you want. And surprise, consoles are NOT phones. If the legal definition of the DMCA (not the DCMA, as you put it, which further proves your lack of knowledge on this subject) calls attention to Telephones, that doesn't mean consoles, or DVR's, or DVD players, it solely limits the law to telephones. Each have a separate function, correct? But according to you, they don't.

Your arguments are filled will holes and lies and untruths. Please come back once you understand the scope and ramifications of the subject.
No, but it's just as bad.

How do you know? Are you a Sony employee? Microsoft can tell if you run burnt game discs, it would be very easy for Sony to add in a check with a new key (One that isn't hacked easily) that each PS3 has to do which checks parameters that hackers can't help but change in the OS, or heck, even just a list of running processes.

One letter difference, plus that post was typed up at 5 in the morning, each has a different function, yes, but the hack is exactly the same, the purpose is exactly the same, why are they different?

And you're one to talk, really.

Cry more.

How do I know? Well, it's been in the news a lot lately. Sony is now playing with the idea of releasing serial numbers for every new game purchased, meaning, that the game would have to be authorized online in order to play. Even Single Player games. THAT is why. Because the root key access is hardware embedded, it's not just a simple firmware update to get rid of it.

Treyarch actually built-in new security measures to black ops, which limits the spread of this problem to the newest edition of that game...for now. The older COD's, GT5 and other games have seen a rise in cheating as a result of this hack. New firmware has been released and yet it still continues on that firmware. How you're unaware of this since you "know" so much escapes me.

That ONE letter of difference you've managed to mispell 5 or 6 times? I really think you need to take what you're talking about seriously before you post.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. It DEFINITELY was an advertised feature. It obviously wasn't advertised on T.V. or ads where the most people that would see it wouldn't care, but the other OS feature was advertised in most press releases. I know someone who specifically bought the PS3 over the 360 because he was interested in other OS, and now he has to choose whether they want to game (update firmware) or use the feature that was the deciding feature on him buying it (other OS).

The air-force may be a bad example because you are right, they don't need to update. The average consumer does need to update to legally play new games, play online and play new blu-rays where the newer firmware is needed.

Proof? There is a difference between an official advertisement from Sony, and excited news reporters pointing out the feature.

While a press release is nowhere near an actual advertisement, show me your "ad." That, and the press releases you're referring to are likely not even from Sony. I'm willing to work with you.
