    They did not shutdown Rare either, and still they killed that studio.

    Or maybe just an accessory with conductive pads to emulate a DMG-01 button layer on a touchscreen.

    Nobody is worried about them getting shut down. However, that doesn't mean they won't rip the studio for it's talent and leave it as a husk to pump shovelware. The death of a studio isn't defined by it's official shutdown, but rather by the marked decline in the quality of content it produces.

    Honestly I trust Microsoft more with obsidian than them working under Bethesda. Bethesda fucked them over so hard, during and post development. Hopefully they do better under Microsoft, if only they could take fallout with them so we could have real fallout back again.

    Living in a place were no one bats and eye to this and you can have entire shops dedicated to piracy, is interesting to see companies enforcing their rights this way.

    The ability to stream is not gone, youtube gaming was just a different layout for youtube focus on gaming, but it didn't have nothing you could't do on normal youtube, i don't know about the app thought, i watch Etika stream in plain youtube and it works the same XD.

    Mmmm i understand what you're saying, but you have to remember that allowing the execution custom software makes the device more vulnerable to piracy, even just extras like browser and media players, "the more complex a system is the more vulnerable it becomes".

    Also Backwards compatibility and emulation is costly, hard, and gives nothing in return to the people who work on them, even when you make a digital market place it doesn't offer much benefit after licences and development the software required for playing old games in a new system.

    After all this is a community built on top of the desire to challenge the restriction imposed in the devices we own.

    And of course there are many companies making exactly that, open hardware with the ability to run custom software, with the ability to play all the retro games you want and i'm not even talking PC, all the other emulation machines that comes in all shapes and sizes.

    This i totally agree, but i cases like these i always blame the consumers who are willing to pay for things like this when there are product out there that cost less and do so much more, i mean you just get preinstalled games, there is not a store to add more games, or even the ability to play physical copies, i just don't see the value in this products.

    I'm sure somewhere in the world there are people who look at how other countries bother to prosecute murderers and rapists and feel the same way as you. It's all down to how strong the legal system is in that country.

    Like PS3 Other OS? Sony removed it after George Hotz used it as an attack vector.

    ow sorry i wasn't condoning the guy in any way, nor do i think living in a third world country is in any way an advantage just because piracy is ubiquitous here, it is just that no every day you see companies against hardware vendors in the same way not every day you see someone so "transparent" about their illicit activities, is like setting up a stand an promoting your "hard substances" in the middle of the street.

    No, I understand. What people think of as normal is based on what they are used to seeing.

    A few years ago Nintendo went hard against flash card sellers across europe and even people from some european countries were astounded, because piracy shops were common place.

    The major problem for this guy was that it took Sony a long time to act, his bravery will have increased as he noticed others and himself were getting away with it. Some people will do the right thing, some people will do the wrong thing, some people will do the right thing if they think they'll get caught doing the wrong thing.

    It is interesting how stuff like pirated games on modded console's goes ignored other than a few listings being removed on eBay for stuff like 360 and PS3, but since PS4 is current Sony took action, whereas like Microsoft they ignored their modded last gen consoles with free games.

    The 360 RGH E model I just got was advertised with "free" games and I got them, although I blew them away when I used the HDD from my older Falcon JTAG on it.
