You're anti-homebrew? No, clearly, XBMC would blow your mind.

if people weren't copying/downloading copyrighted material, I doubt console makers would bother with homebrew.

Surely they mean upload? Does it say that in the manual you get with the Wii? If not you would be well within your rights to get a full refund as they plan to tamper with YOUR property without consent.

The two go hand in hand. If console makers enabled access to run linux/ homebrew and were prepared to compete on a level field with small games firms (like in the C64 days) then there wouldn't be a problem. We're left now with samey games produced by huge corporations that lock down hardware to only the things they want you to run...

Imagine if you could only buy parts for your car from the manufacturer. Or the petrol.

This is what I don't like - release the hardware, release the software and watch creative and brilliant people make better and better things. I honestly couldn't live without XBMC and it hasn't 'hurt' Microsoft in anyway. Did they really think that allowing small developers would stop them selling their own titles?

If the 360 was open and had XBMC i'd buy one. As that's never going to happen (being realistic) MS have lost a customer.

Maybe so but they are effectively limiting the market for it.

LMAO! If such a thing exists!

I like the creativity and determination of the linux and hacking communities. If I can make something better with a new firmware or software then I will because I believe it is my right to use the hardware I buy to do what I want with. If I think that an computer makes a better book-end than as a calculating machine then I'm free to do so!

I have a Linksys router running DD-WRT (higher power, stability and added functionality), NSLU2 running SLUG (and SAMBA, CUPS to serve a printer and drives) XBOXs running T3CH XBMC, PS3 with Ubuntu and Wii with the Homebrew channel. I also have APs running DD-WRT that behave as wireless bridges. A DS loaded with my games and organiser etc...

Limiting hardware because it prevents piracy is a waste of time, energy and resources, it's like spending huge amounts of money on putting up fences only to find that people can find a way through, over or under.

The cost is added to games anyway.

Why not concentrate on making good games that people want to buy because they enjoy playing?

You think they would open it up if it made commercial sense? Sure they would, they are after the most money.
The dreamcast is an example of a console that failed in part because of it's piracy problems. What developers are going to pay for dev packs when they know the majority of users wont buy them?

Not my problem! :) Does that mean you can't modify it?

They came up with the business plan and make millions of dollars from it. Nintendo do make a profit - go figure.

What you want is a PC.
And what you want is the exact reason why PC gaming is on the decline. The developers are aware of the piracy problems and so are now puttin gtheir efforts into getting good console games out, the PC ones get pushed to the side.
The fences may have holes in them but as long as their measures stop some peopel from using them then they are doing their job.
All of your opensource solutions are all well and good but the people that provide them don't pay for the hardware, Sony, MS and nintendo to some extent subsidise their consoles as the bigger the install base the more devpacks they can sell and more commision they can get.

Surely only if they save more money than they cost to put into place? I don't care what Sony and Microsoft's plans are. Fact is that I could go and buy 300 consoles and destroy them. They are legally mine however companies intend that I use them to earn more money for them.

That was back in 2006
You can imagine that they still make a profit.

You can do what you want with them as long as you do not circumvent copy protection mechanisms.

Sony have a good track record what with the PS2 Linux kit and the PS3 readily able to run any flavour of Linux. It's not great but at least they try :).
