I was put off by $ony when they decided to sue people who touched "their" previous PS3 even if the things they were doing didnt allow piracy.
I was put off when they changed the TOS in the USA just because they could get away with it.
I was put off when they removed otheros, I never used it, but they took away a feature I paid for!
I was put off when they removed the memory card slot, 2 usb ports and PS3 BC, on all consoles in newer consoles.
I was put off as they keep referring to their updates are either "optional" or mandatory to suit their needs; when the 3.21 update was basically ransoming people of their console, either stick with 3.15 and lose psn and future game/movie support, or update and lose otheros; not much of a choice, more like an ultimatum.
So after buying a PS1, a PS2, a PSP and a PS3, the next console I buy will not be a $ony one!
