PSJailbreak ruled legal in Spain, Sony must now pay damages.

[newsimage]http://static.rankone.nl/images_posts/2010/12/4rhkcY.jpg[/newsimage]When the PS Jailbreak and similar USB modchip devices burst onto the PS3 scene in August, Sony predictably did everything within their legal power to label the hacks as “circumvention devices” and have them outlawed in several countries. Sony had been quite successful in that quest for several months, but a Barcelona court trial verdict last week has brought an abrupt end to that winning streak, and it was the corporation’s own actions with the console that prompted the decision.

Interesting . . . this sounds like a big blow to Sony.

We’re heading towards a big bang situation for Sony … the whole Sony universe is starting to contract … until eventually, it’s going to blow up.

Sony in total is very very big and computer gaming is just “a division”.

But then there’s also the huge backlash over Sony’s poor support & handling over product repair/replacement - not just the gaming division :wink:

Or a Home theatre receiver (deadset, it’s taken sony them 15months, and 6 returns of the original receiver) - and then they supplied an updated model, but it was also broken - obviously a refurb unit, rather than new, , and so 1 more return of the “new” receiver to get to where they are now - which is apparently providing another “new” receiver - I’m still waiting.

Or a TV - My bosses parents have bought a new TV about 15 months ago … 3 months in, it kept notifying them that the unit needed servicing, and refused to work. Sony Repairers claim there’s nothing wrong … but the message keeps popping up. It’s been back 5 times … and still nothing.

Methinks the respective countries “Department of Fair Trading” (or whatever it’s called in every country) needs to start charging manufacturers & suppliers for the time they spend on cases where consumers are being treated like garbage.

I’m never buying Sony again, and everyone who asks for recommendations will never be buying Sony again … which is alot of people (I’m such a nerd, and everyone knows it).

This may come as a suprise, given the priviledged nature of the western world … but working in these sweatshops is a huge improvement from where they’d otherwise be working.

Don’t like sweatshops … petition the companies with sweatshops to better the working conditions of the sweatshops … but you’ll have to pay much more or goods.
