Behind Sony's war on console modding

GGG: "At the heart of the fraught court battle between video gaming giant Sony and a clutch of tiny Australian technology retailers is a simple disparity between the philosophical way in which each views the PlayStation 3 console.

The retailers view the device -- of which Sony has sold almost a million in Australia -- more or less the same way most consumers view most things they purchase: As an item which they own by virtue of forking out some dosh.

Turn on in debug mode, i don't call that hack.

Also they said that a game has to be in the PS3 for it to work properly just not the same game you wish to play.
