wow at the comments
I'm amazed, seems their are more screaming idiots here than on sony's own forums.
you do understand that you can still use your CFW console to play with linux or watch pirated movies or play 15 year old pirated roms or whatever you want to do with it right? (apart from the 3 people that actually have an interest in linux on a ps3 the rest of you are still breaking the law)
all sony are saying is they dont want you on their network shitting up online gaming for everyone legit
sick to death of the pathetic entitlement ranting that everyone is doing. grow the fuck up please. if you were stupid enough to mod your console and think you should still be able to get on PSN then i'd advise extreme care when crossing the road, or tying your shoelaces
