.... free PS3 games & PSN banning .... or .... PSN network / Qriocity music network ....
If I was a pirate ..... I'd go CFW
Quite frankly, given the garbage that eventually trickles onto Sony's Aussie PlayStation Network, I haven't used the PSN for over 1 year, and the pi$$ poor service you get for Sony products .... I'm never buying another sony product again.
Honestly, for Aussies, the loss of the PSN would be no big deal. Heck, if Sony banned every CFW user from ever buying/using ANY Sony product again, it'd be no big deal.
And I hear Europe's PSN network & service isn't much better.
I don't understand the need to split the PSN network up anyway .. apart from milking extra cash out of certain segments .. honestly?
I'm not sure how such a great company has fallen so far in just a few years. Sony products used to be on top of the game, and top-notch quality, even if they were the most expensive ... but now they're mediocre, playing catch-up with every other company, churning out low-quality, under-featured garbage products produced in third-world conditions while charging a high premium for the Sony brand-name, all while the company flounders financially.
The Current Sony Management needs to be sacked, Sony's new management team needs to issue a public apology for the poor service and stupid decisions they've made in the last few years, and then focus on customer satisfaction as a priority.
