Umm...is this PS3 mine or not?
I've got Linux installed. I upgraded the HD especailly years back. Was disappointed about it's performance, but still, as a geek, was fun to do. Still like to geek that fact out that I have Linux on my PS3 to non-geeks..In fact, my m8's thought of me when they read the news :-)
Haven't booted up using it for over a year, probably won't (think about it like an ex-girlfriend kinda thing - nice to have known)...but the important thing is that it's something I have invested time and money in, in a product I thought was mine.
Now...I could be wrong, but removing this feature is changing a feature of the product...isn't that a misrepresentation of goods problem? Let alone the whole known idea that where does ownership of a product be fully mine and partially the manafacturers?
I bought a pair of jeans coz I liked the cut...designers decided they don't think the cut is representative of their new image - they change the cut of my jeans
..."but I didn't buy those jeans"
..".well, you're making us look bad"
..."but you sold them to me like that"
...".sorry (optional apology!) kid, you don't have a choice"
..."ok, well..I'll be buying jeans from another designer next time."
doesn't seem right does it?
The install isn't really optional. It's only optional because I have to manually do it. If Sony could auto-update legally, they would have done.
Get in the crammed car with no space for your luggage or walk the next 30 miles in the rain?
I'm all up for a Facebook Group on this...anyone know one going? The consumer act must cover this somehow
Don't give me candy then tell me it's bad and take it away. You'll make me cry and I'll hate you and you'll be that "meany" everyone dislikes
