I feel you, I bought a new game, and a couple PSN cards for PSN credit.. Haven't been able to use either yet.
On the other hand, I can see where Anon is coming from. Most "revolutions" (ok well not exactly that, but you get the idea) usually have side effects that are bad, but usually are deemed acceptable to reach the greater good of the goal. There are two sides to the coin though, Sony wants to keep their system locked down, and I can understand that, yet people who bought their hardware that they now OWN should also be allowed to enjoy their item that they now own in any way that they like. But that also opens up an entire other can of worms with copyright stuff.
However if someone modifies their console to run say another OS like linux then they should be allowed to do so as it is not breaking any copyright laws. I think that's why Anon is upset, as with the Gehot case, like he stated he did not hack the console to pirate things, but rather to run other programs that Sony feels should not be allowed to run, like another OS, or a game/program that's not under copyright. In fact the US Government them selves broke the EULA with Sony when they used hundreds of PS3 networked as "super computers" to crunch data.
Honestly this entire Anon thing reminds me of the movie V, which I absolutely LOVED.Edited by Cyrilmak - 4/22/11 at 9:44pm
