    Well, since PS3 is the last console to be hacked, I'll say Sony has already made enough money with it.

    Poor Sony, Nintendo, Microsoft.

    It's still not worth jailbreaking because there is no region free PS2 support yet. This is what pretty much will make or break these devices since slim owners can't play PS2 games on their PS3s.

    They don't have the hardware for playing PS3 games, only the original models do and they're quite scarce. Any newer consoles will need an emulator coded.

    Jamstruth is correct. PS2 emulation in the past was hardware based, but was cut due to production costs.

    Then why do people buy DSTWO's? not to play GBA and SNES games I guess.

    According to your argument, people waited for the DSTWO to start playing DS games because now it was worth it since it can emulate the GBA and SNES?

    The PS3 is worth jailbreaking, even if it never supports ps2 backups.

    there's also the iplayer plugin (which was promised on release), n-game stuff like free cheat and guide, far better compatibility (didin't need a patch for stuff like golden sun and works on shitty sd cards which akaio has some troubles with)
    and the chance for epic homebrew such as ds2x86 which is currently being worked on...
