And Sony didn't remove Other OS because Geohot made them believe something. They removed it because of his exploit... Which is real...

However, I wouldn't mind the PS3 being hacked for the things users want. $ony does not give users what they ask for and if the PS3 is hacked, there would be an oppertunity for coders to come up with homebrew to enable the things users asked for (like other hacked consoles/platforms).
I am totally against piracy, but I suppose it is inevitable when the PS3 gets hacked. I would however choose not to purchase pirated games.

@OGroteKoning: So you think atari was so depressed by the piracy they could just produce E.T. (for the atari 2600) ? EA is so broken down, they couldn't produce a decent NFS in the recent years? (just to name a few..)
Or if you think of muliplayer: MW2 is hacked even in ps3... (one of the best selling title so far...)
@proskopina: if you think the game industry will collapse, if somebody hacks the ps3, then it's time to wake up dude! Every other platform opened up by now, and see, there is still wii, x360, ds (the best selling of them all), and there are games for them! New and good games for them! (sadly the psp games were mostly just ports of other platform games and still now.. but still not died out yet)
The crappy games are caused by bad management, "milking" strategy, lack of time/resource, lack of deep testing, etc.. but NOT the piracy. As far as the official release is tied to sony quality check, and require the not so cheap SDK there won't be so crappy official games (as example big rigs ). The unofficials will likely be free so it's a good excuse even for the worst ones.
If the developers making games that sucks, they will deserve the lack of revenue. (In extreme case pirating will decrease the QUANTITY of games but not necessarily the quality.)
Pirates most likely won't buy games otherwise, or will pick just really good ones.
In addition, game rentals aren't there everywhere.

My guess is that it might increase sales of the ps3 if cracked.

My realistic analogy: This is like saying a 700 million dollar fine is going to have a negative economical or positive moral affect on an oil company..
I know small software vendor owners who recover from piracy in real time, Sony isn't just a game console maker. They could dominate just off one of their markets.
I think it's annoying how ignorant people are to logic, logistics, and sociology when it comes to most things. You can't build morals off marketing and semantics..

The better the coders the better the games. Logik also tells me that if games get pirated and the companies sell less games, then their income and profitablity will be less. And less income might lead to poorer games ... i'm sure you get my drift ...
