Surely if Sony are claiming you can't do what you want with something youve purchased and you can't install homebrew software or software from other developers then they are creating a monopoly, in the UK the monopoly commision would be all over them like a rash.
Why is it ok to use accesories like third party controllers, cables, internal hard drives etc and you can't do it with homebrew apps, firmware updates, and linux ?
DOUBLE STANDARDS !!!
