"CAP for free to existing users and market (advertise) it to win the competition, but they only seek to fill their pockets with $$$ the easiest way. "
The Cloud Acceleration Platform isn't owned by Sony, if you research the 'Playstation Download Manager' you'll see it's a homebrew proxy / caching gateway with multi-segmented support; as the developer I realised the limitation and have been devising a method to enhance speed for those on FTTx or existing users of my software so their downloads won't require an active PC.
A beta may be launched very soon, but I'll keep anyone updated on that; still working on improving the DNS which seems to have an impact on matchmaking in most PS3 Games.
I too wish for OtherOS, and my PS2 games to work again but unfortunately my 60GB died around a year ago
