If GeoHot "wins" - and by that I assume you mean that Sony's multiple lawsuits do not work successfully (which at least one will no matter what, there is no argument to be had for a few): nothing will change.
Sony removed PS2 compatability and they removed OtherOS.
What aren't they going to remove? It's kind of funny though, while Sony has been removing features Microsoft has been adding features.
Where does Microsoft even enter this conversation when it comes to what your talking about? Not only that, but you're dead wrong.
So - Sony removed OtherOS. That feature doesnt even exist on the Xbox 360.
Microsoft technically stopped and removed Xbox compatibility too with the exception of a handful of games. You can still play PSX games on the PS3 as well.
Microsoft has not done anything "new" or added features on Xbox 360 for the past year or two aside from ESPN. Which the PS3 has been doing practically since PSN Video has launched.
Sony has been adding DOZENS of new features on the PS3 the Xbox only wishes it could do.

It has nothing to do with the GeoHot case but is also a SUPER flawed argument.Edited by OmegaNemesis28 - 2/23/11 at 3:21pm
