    Sony has done a little more than go to court...

    PS3 owners will, in the future, have to update their firmware with an update that kills the jailbreak's ability to play borrowed games and the like.

      Well I can't say I'm too sad about this, the manufacturers are all (understandably) clamping down on piracy and as someone who always prefers owning the original I think it's better for the quality of games that we get if there's less piracy. Also I find with old games that I have downloaded you don't actually value them that much anyway, I've never gone to the trouble of unlocking everything or completely finishing any game I got for free. You appreciate the details more if you've paid money for it.
      And all the people who whine about the fact the manufacturers are making so much money anyway etc should grow up, certain car manufacturers make a lot of money but people still buy their cars because it's what they want, why should games be any different? Just because you can get something for free on the internet doesn't automatically mean you should be entitled to play it on your console, so you should just be glad you got to play some free games for a while and either sell your console or start saving up for a few decent games a year.
