Sony is only hurting themselves in the long run trying to combat piracy. The cat is out of the bag: The PS3 is finally hacked. No amount of updates or feature removals will stem the tide. Hackers, like life, will always find a way. And what Sony doesn't realize, that other companies like Adobe and Microsoft (for the most part) have, is that the harder they fight it and push us, the harder we will push back.
Its the proverbial fighting a knife with a gun, gun with a cannon, cannon with a missile, etc etc. If they'd just relax and let the relatively few pirates out there pirate a few games here and there, we'd ease up on trying to put the smackdown on them.
To any Sony representatives reading this, if you keep screwing with us... all I can say to you is, bring a lunch. You're gonna be here a while.
