Christ! Arrrg, I am pissed about this! Why has no one sued them over this yet? I can't believe the kind of thing they are able to get away with. Wish I had billion dollar lawyers too. In all honesty though, this is both unethical and immoral. I really don't know why I am surprised though.
Afterall, they DID take OtherOS support away. That was pretty damn unethical and immoral as well. I guess it's just extremely disappointing to see how little they REALLY care for their consumers and their privacy. Privacy and intrusion are a HUGE thing right now, as they should be. I hope they get torn limb for limb for this crap. They shouldn't be allowed to do this. What starts today with Sony & Microsuck will lead to everyone being 'allowed' to do it tomorrow.
Speaking of Microsuck. I see a few people are trying to dodge this risk by changing topics to M$. Making them seem like they are worse than Sony is. Well, I will admit nothing would make me happier than to see Microsuck fall but the same goes for Sony right now. Both of them are guilty of this. Whats worse is that BOTH of them GET AWAY WITH IT.
I must have been mistaken, I could have sworn that invading others' privacy was ILLEGAL. I thought that's why cameras aren't allowed in public restrooms. Guess I was wrong, as long as you got the money, nothing is illegal. Freakin' GAY!
I had really strong and high hopes for this console when it first came out. I thought "its Sony, they haven't ever really let me down in the past." Lately though, it's just been one sucker-punch after another to the consumer. I will always love my previous PlayStation systems but I am to the point where I really hope a PS4 never sees the light of day, along with this retarded company.
After I read about all this security/privacy intrusion stuff yesterday I am glad I am not on PSN or the internet with this thing. What we need is for some of the genius hackers/coders and reverse engineers to figure all this PSN connection BS out so we can learn to create our own servers that can be used so we can all play online together... completely PSN/Sony FREE!
Bah! I am glad i'm not online anymore. Being banned would probably do me a favor. Screw all this intrusive stuff. No thanks, not for me!
