    Well I can't say I blame them. Sony have been so restrictive with the PS3 capabilities, it makes people even more determined to hack it. The last straw was removing the other OS system capability.

    LOL You need to "friend" my hubby on facebook and the two of you can discuss this and more. I am always astonished at the number of hacks that are possible on these devices -- phones too.

    PS3 was not hackable for ages, and Sony's attitude towards customers has been quite draconian. They have been steadily removing feature:

    -Ability to play PS 2 games
    -Ability to use other OS's

    As the tenth master said, "When all other means fail, it maybe necessary to draw the sword". In this case hackers have used a cyber sword :)

    PlayStation 3 has long been a popular toy for modders because of the ability to run Linux on your hardware, Sony has a feature since removed, apparently for fear of software piracy. PS3 is considered the most reliable console ever made with the rest not hacked for four years.The very little information right now, but have successfully hacked the PS3 to have full read and write, without going through the hypervisor.

    The Blu-Rays on first PS3 generation consoles were prone to failure...my nephew's Blu-ray failed just outside the warranty period

    Personally I think the PS3 is over-rated and over-priced...much as I detest Microsoft, I would have to grudgingly concede that the XBox represents much better value for money

    Incidentally, I have neither...my boys are aged 10 and 6 so I decided the Wii was a much better option for them...great fun all round!

    I detest Microsoft too. But the feedback on XBox is just as you say from the sources I have read/talked to.

    I have always used x-Box and simply love it!!! Though customer service in India is pathetic to really mild... A Microsoft person had to come all the from Delhi just to replace a small faulty x-box under warranty... took more than a week... you can well image my plight... swordfight

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
