    Sony couldn't care less about HomeBrew as far as running your own applications. The main thing they are concerned over is the use of unlocked systems to play pirated games.

    Consider the fact that Sony would not make any money by letting your average person make apps for the PSP. Sony is a business. If they can't make any money, they probably won't do it.
    Contradicting yourself there? Or are you just saying they wont put the effort into making it possible as opposed to trying to stop it since homebrew could cut into profits?

    Homebrew doesnt equals backups/iso loaders. The sdk realesed to the public would not be the same as the game studios use minus the devkit hardware. Homebrew sells hardware/consoles. Sony can control what apps to publish with an appstore (PSN) and the community develops cool software at almost no cost for sony.

    I would love to write code for my ps3. In sweden where I live we got a couple of different movie/music streaming services that are legal (subscription and/or ad based). Would sony develop clients for these services? Probably not but the community can. If they allow third party apps/homebrew then the removal of the otheros on the slims makes so much more sense.

    Again, I'm not sure how Microsoft does it so I'm just speculating, but I believe XNA works in a way that you pay a special subscription fee if you want to sell your games, and then you can sell them for whatever you want as long as you are subscribed.

    However I believe you can upload the games to your own xbox for free.

    Well just to note, the old information bored is just flash:

    sk8terfu
    Since FW 2.0 till FW 3.0 there was the so called Informationboard. This is a simple .swf file on the HDD and can be replaced with knightsolidus' HDD decryption methode. As the informationboard.swf does not run in a sandbox there's a lot possible but sadly it was removed in the actual FW 3.0.

    I think this will unlock a lot of hacking for the PS3 like Datel. Look at the FMCB for the PS2. I can't wait!

    I'm personally hoping that Sony continues what they've been up with their Xperia line of smartphones - which are Android enabled. If Sony can introduce an Android marketplace onto a home console - I think the implications could be groundbreaking.

    Right now I'm looking into possibly creating an Android application for PSN integration. There is one out now already - so I'm glad that it is possible.

    $2 rentals?

    When was the last time you rented a game from Blockbuster for $2.00? I haven't since the 80s. The Blockbuster down the street from me has a poor selection of games, and charges $7.99/7 days. I did GameFly for a while, which was decent, however.

    These days, I just buy used games and re-sell them when I'm done with them, as it's actually cheaper in the long run, given the (in-)frequency in which I pick up new titles. Half.com is my friend. A few really good ones (LBP for instance), I keep in my library for the long haul.

    Homebrew is not limited to backup launchers and such things. Sony will probably do it similar to the iphone appstore from apple.
    I agree. It would make a lot of sense for Sony to flirt with the homebrew community. Apple has certainly benefited from the ubiquity of the iPhone. Sony already has the tools for a decent home brew market on the PS3, and they've been STRONGLY courting developers for the PSP GO (which is a joke of a system in my opinion.) It seems to me, Sony has been losing money and market share, and is pretty desperate to regain dominance. In the mobile market, Nintendo and Sony have been strongly hurt by iPhone. If Sony can make compelling hardware (PS3 is that already), and encourage the developer community with strong incentives (open development platform, rich developer tools, low-margin file hosting, etc), Sony could actually have a rich App Store on it's hands. I doubt Sony would ever allow completely open development, for things like Emulators and the like, but I can definitely see opportunity for them, if they play their cards right. I just wonder if it's too little, too late. The PS3 is definitely better hardware (than the XB360), and seem to be gaining momentum, but it's taken them 3 years to get here. I just hope Sony can come back strong, but after several years of bad (anti-consumer) decisions, I have my doubts.
