We all know that PS Jailbreak stole the the show this year, 2010 was the year that the PS3’s security was finally compromised and behind the scene, PS Jailbreak has been very successful. Of course, Sony’s PS3 has had an amazing year in gaming, community and technology, but we would all be fooling ourselves if we didn’t bring up PS Jailbreak as the biggest PS3 news of the year.
Think of the Original Xbox, the console was incredible, but only till the console’s security was compromised did it become more popular and more advanced. Now, let’s look at the PS3. The PlayStation 3 has been the console that somehow cannot catch up to the current generation in terms of online features to those of Microsoft’s Xbox Live. While most PS3 gamers have been used to the lack of cross game chat and the dreadfully slow downloads and patch updates on the console, many of these missing features may be easily implemented or even disregarded with the help of jailbreak gurus.
It was said when the PS3 came out, that the PS3 would be the console of the future and the console that would have a 10 yr life span. While it seems that Sony is in pace to meet that talk, the PS3 can have more than 10 years as a relevant console with tons of support and features that we are hearing PS Jailbreak do today. It always seems that once a console get’s compromised, the company always abandons the console and moves on to the next one, when in fact they should be focusing on the legal features that people like about the jailbroken version.
Indeed, PS Jailbreak is more than likely used to play backup games now a day, but why doesn’t Sony bend a little and go against these jailbreakers and not only match, but top whatever the jailbreak team offers? Sony is into making money as much as the next business, the problem is, that the general public never sees the true potential of a console therefore might pass on a purchase. Only the true followers and explorers of the console will understand and find its true potential through a source that could be working for Sony instead of working against Sony.
The PS3 is a powerful console, but by the time Sony shows us its true capabilities, the label will read PS4 and the year will be 2016, while the jailbreak aficionados, laugh at the fact that the PS3 was capable of all this, since 2010.
We are not encouraging PS Jailbreak, we are encouraging Sony, to step up. PS Jailbreak was indeed bigger than any PS3 game in 2010 and it’s just the beginning.
