Sony is losing money in production and sales,
Sony did airlift it to the US, it did lose money on shipping/handling (The system is really heavy),
Sony strategy by doing this, is gaining control over the consule war (slowly),
Sony is also pushing it's blue-ray by doing this as well,
Sony will innevitable make a profit off game sales b/c of the number of system's already sold (even if they don't sell anyone more),
THIS ISO LOADER IS NOT MARKETING, IT DOESN'T MAKE ANYONE BUY PS3, NO USING MEANS NO INTIATIVE
sony is NOT loosing money on producing ps3 at all; what sony is whinning about ps3 cost is the slow recovery of the development & the initial launch cost, but it will be resolved sooner or later.
sony wants to take over the world by imposing tax on every digital entertainment from games to musics & directly over the network. sony wants the cell processor the heart of every digital medias through ps3.
ps3 isn't as powerful as what sony wanted us to believe, and it lacks the killer games so far + lacks the rumble on sixaxis controller. if these aren't enough, the price is very high. so i don't want to buy ps3, but if iso loader works well & it would be near impossible for sony to block it, then i might consider to buy one.
looking for wii at local stores, it is nowhere to be found; however, ps3s are on the shelves & gathering dusts; hoping that this situation forces sony to lower the price of ps3 considerably by summer
Cool Cool... thx Hacker2123 so now im fully a believer just a matter of time and better games for this to be released... another question sorta off topic but is using an external hard drive any different than an internal one in linux (other than the obvious "its External" joke) or does it show up like a memory card or something?
Shows up basically as USB Thumbdrive or memory card, its just a source of information not vital to the system.
..........and it's hacked2123 not hacker2123...with hacked2123 I can hack or be hacked, and basically cover my lies.
This leads me to believe that confirmation on support will be coming very soon, but I would not suggest upgrading yet... although is leans towards a promising message in the near future
Does anyone have an idea when Paradox is releasing another NFO? I am looking forward to a clue, or perhaps straight up information of whether or not it is safe to upgrade or not. I would also appreciate some more information on a loader, but all indications point to the Euro-release of the PS3 timeframe. It probably doesn't make much sense to keep banging on the door until 3rd week of march.
I wouldn't upgrade to 1.50 or 1.51. I spoke with PDX last night, and although they still haven't officially confirmed anything (we will probably have to wait for an upcoming NFO file) they did tell me NOT to upgrade beyond 1.32 before the EUR PS3 release.
There is a good chance one of them (1.50?) may be safe, but perhaps not... so unless you have a game you can't wait to play that requires higher than 1.32 I'd say it is best to wait to be safe.
