"Originally, Sony touted the PlayStation 3 as more computer than game machine. The â€˜father of the PlayStationâ€™ Ken Kutaragi said as much in 2006 mere months before its launch: â€œWe donâ€™t say itâ€™s a game console. PlayStation 3 is clearly a computer."
Has Sony sued and gone after the other computer owners who have changed hard drives, ram chips or OS's? It's modified beyond OEM specs. Here they (Sony) have laid a claim that it is NOT a gaming console, but a computer. So logic says that Sony should not have a leg to stand on legally. Unless, they are planning a retro lawsuit on all owners of computers and which one could claim Ex Post Facto, and then give Sony the finger.
