    There's a lot of rumbling that the demo is off a dev version of the console, and it won't work on regular ones.

    this could lead to the PS3 being cracked wide open, for homebrew and custom dashboards etc :)

    As I can tell, the USB dongle enables Debug Mode on the PS3, just as they do it when repairing it, so you can rip Blu-Rays.

    I think :).

    LOL :roll:

    Yep, pretty much. Which is why it will be hard for SONY to combat ;) I may have to grab one of these, but £96 is a bit steep :D

    I'm confused about alternate OS. Why is it so great to have?

    it is only so great if you are into installing linux and turning your ps3 into a desktop when you are not gaming. plus, it is fun.

    yea. i mean, the ps3 as is works fine as a media machine. but installing linux on it just made it a lot more customizable.

    The PSP is so easy to pirate, the games are small enough to store unlike PS3 titles with its Blu Rays. They have nothing to worry about stealing games because it would be solid to do it.

    They brought out custom firmware didn't they for PS3?
    My understanding is that it doesn't install or anything like that, so its different from custom firmware.

    I dont understand removing otherOS? PS2 compatibility and Super Audio CD as cost cutting measures or something.

    other os only existed so sony could get a tax break in the EU otherwise we never would have had the feature to begin with as for the jailbreak interesting i suppose but as noted rather pointless as im not upgrading my ps3s hard drive for this nor will i pay for it etc cheaper to just plain use game fly after all after i beat a game i hardly ever play it again and if i do i already bought it lol

    I have fast ass internet, most games do not take up the full 25Gb, and PC HDD space is SUPER CHEAP.

    They do have something to worry about, because when things are free. People tend to follow that direction. If it's really easy it becomes a flood.

    Someone needs to take the contents of the USB off, make a torrent and give it out for free. Anyone doing this is is doing it for the free aspect, they were fools to charge 169 for it. Bah!

    we live in a world of greed and consumption if money can be made off of it then someone will try and make money that simple fools or not as easy as it is to do for them my guess is they will make a quick buck and then dissappear
