Software PS2 emulation, SACD playback, and OtherOS support are all just software switches you can flip.
SACD support requires a special optical pickup that was removed starting with the 40 GB PS3. I wouldn't expect someone that didn't know the PS3 has custom themes to know that though. And I'd love to see his evidence that Sony has a production-ready pure-software PS2 emulator ready. Yeah, we've seen some suspicious file names, but that's it. OtherOS support, well, we know why that's being removed.
I think GeoHot is the one to blame for this. Without his PS3 hack this never happened. Now he try to play the hero with a custom firmware.
Umm, the exploit was released AFTER when the Slim came out. Yet the Slim version never had OtherOS support. So, it's unlikely that Sony removed OtherOS from Slim because of security concerns because like what I said, the exploit wasn't released back then.
Blame Sony for removing an advertised feature that you bought PS3 for...
now that i think about it, it may be possible for a class action lawsuit, Sony did push the whole " install Linux on ps3" which prompted consumers to buy it, not to mention the price tag that came with it.
it can be done, "i need to be compensated for the loss occurred due to Sony's malicious ploy to rob first adopting consumers. i was mislead by Sony, when they advertised that online was free & i could install the Linux OS. i feel like i bought a car, & once i got it home, the manufacture call 3 years later, & told me where taking the radio, seat belts, doors, & tires."
I can do a way better job of sounding victimized in person.
