Comment on Sony Threatens Mass Bans for PS3 Pirates by Kappa Engineer:

Actually that was nothing new the PS2 had linux so it could be sold as a computer in the UK.

When they took away the other OS you could say they owed the UK government back taxes on those PS3s that were taxed as a computer.

    Security should be server side not client side.

    I don’t really pirate newer games that much though I do often buy used games. But I do like to be able to load homebrew,emulators and roms on my consoles. The Wii for example lacks a true media player but you can add one using the homebrew channel. Such a thing would be nice on the PS3 as it’s media player and browser are at best a sick joke. Being able to play old PS1 and PS2 games also would be nice. Sony is just being a dick as there is no reason why backward compatibility should not be …

    @ Anon 11:53 many of them would use slave labor if they could wait they do in a way when they operate in the developing world.

    But huge corporations often can be very evil. Why do you think entities like the EPA,OSHA, and Consumer protection laws exist. Many of them would do horrendous things if they where allowed to run free with no oversights.

  • Sony Threatens Mass Bans for PS3 Pirates:
    PS4 also is reported to not be that big of an upgrade over the PS3. The specs I seen a quad core X86 with an Integrated GPU will make it much less powerful then the Xbox 720 closer to the Wii U but it should be very easy to pirate compared to it’s predecessor.

    It has a surreal kinda feeling to it.

  • PS4 Japan Sales = 320,000 “As Bad As The Vita!”:
    The hardware is mediocre except for the amount and speed of memory and they pushed to hard on useless social features so no one is impressed. I think the PS4 will still be mildly successful because everyone else screwed up worse but it likely will be much shorter lived then the PS1 PS2 and PS3.

    @ Anon 03:45 I touched on the X86 thing they could have at least choose a good X86 architecture vs something so low end. Even an old Core 2 quad or quad core FX would beat it across the board when paired with a good graphics card. Heck some very fast clocked i3s duals probably are just as fast. From a hardware stand point they’re not even trying.

  • PS4 Japan Sales = 320,000 “As Bad As The Vita!”:
    Editing is broke The system should in theory be easy to crack then the PS3. But even PS2 emulation may be a difficult on the PS4 due to the use of 8 shit tier X86 cores vs four fast ones. The emulator would have to be fairly multithreaded like anything else on the console must be. There is Gaikai streaming but it’s at best a half assed solution that would demand a fast connection and nearby servers to be useable plus the ridiculousness of paying for old games.

  • PS4 Japan Sales = 320,000 “As Bad As The Vita!”:
    Most consoles don’t need an internet connection to play single player games even Steam’s off line mode is kinda crappy so you end up having to crack your steam games if you want to play them off line. BTW I covered to lack of backwards compatibility on the PS4. The fact they used 8 shit tier X86
