Sony Lawyers Expand Dragnet, Targeting Anybody Posting PlayStation 3 Hack
Sony is threatening to sue anybody posting or “distributing” the first full-fledged jailbreak code for the 4-year-old PlayStation 3 gaming console.

What’s more, the company is demanding that a federal judge order Google to surrender the IP addresses and other identifying information of those who have viewed or commented about the jailbreak video on a private YouTube page. The game maker is also demanding that Twitter provide the identities of a host of hackers who first unveiled a limited version of the hack in December.

Glad I'm too much of a fanboy to ever support this. :hsugh:

Seriously though, I lost interest in piracy a long time ago. Ruins gaming IMO.

They should embrace it and support open source. It would probably help in hardware sales.

Doubt that...from a software standpoint. Do you have any sources?

Nah just rough estimates. Nothing is tracked well enough.

Discrete Graphics card sales + Boxed and Online sales of PC games + Gaming peripherals + MMO subscriptions + microtransactions in browser gaming/facebook gaming and other unique revenue streams in the PC space.

Although is you counted the portables as consoles it'd probably kick the PC's ass.

^^^ that proves nothing. Doesn't show the combination of multi-plat games, and only proves that there are a few PC games that have sold more than a few console games. Also as for the "more money" thing, it doesn't take into account that PC games cost less and are more highly discounted (especially via steam) than console games.
