just another lurker here... thought i'd emerge from my dark corner and tell you my thoughts, paranoid as they may be
i've been checking out a lot of forums on a daily basis, relating to ps3/psp homebrew... i've done that for a year or two now, and i've noticed a significant increase in people who are vocally against the PS3 getting hacked... the general flavour of commentary seems to be:
1. PSP was hacked, games were pirated, screw homebrew
2. my PS3 is WAYYYY to expensive for me to open it up and do anything to it
3. i'm fed up of homebrew. i just want 'regular' and 'exciting' news. kind of an oxymoron, really
4. maybe it's time for an 'unhackable' system to get some spotlight. 'hey, all the other systems were hacked... why don't we just let the PS3 be?'
those were the major attitudes detractors take on the PS3 homebrew scene, from what i've been able to notice so far
sometimes it makes me wonder what people have to gain to troll forums and post that kind of tripe everywhere. kind of a passive-aggressive stance from Sony maybe?
like i said, i'm probably being paranoid, but i just found it intriguing as to why Joe Public would try to harm the inertia homebrew developers and the community in general build up in a developmental context... and maybe more importantly, what would motive him/her.
just had to drop my 2c : ) i'll go back to lurking now...
