You suck Sony!

So how many people have heard of the things Sony has been doing with the PS3?
To sum it up, some hacker got root access to the PS3’s hardware through the OtherOS feature. So what did sony do? They removed OtherOS! Granted the OtherOS wasn’t exactly a great feature because of the limited RAM (256MB), but it was still awesome to be able to take advantage of that sweet sweet PowerPC CPU.

Now the only way to keep the “OtherOS” feature is to not upgrade the firmware… but you can’t connect to the online network without the latest firmware. Not only that but some newer games will probably be demanding newer firmware to run! And just for good measure, some downloaded games from the PS network require a constant connection with the PS network! Which obviously can’t be done unless you upgrade your firmware!
