On top of that, you can be assured that all new games will be playable, plus the additional benefits of owning a ps3 bring. You don't get that when purchasing a dongle. You could order one today, and before you even get it in the mail a number of things could happen... for example...
∙ However the TB team are making games work could be patched.
∙ TB team could start charging a small fee for each compatible game you play using the dongle.
∙ Support for the dongle could vanish as fast as it appeared on the scene, making your dongle obsolete.
∙ New methods of launching backups could emerge (and I am sure will someday), making your dongle obsolete.
∙ Release groups could stop releasing TB patches for games.
This list goes on and on. If you like wasting money (or thinking you are saving money by purchasing a dongle and then pirating games) then by all means, you deserve to own one Myself, I like to spend my money wisely, and don't pirate games. Most of my games have 50+ hours game play logged, $60 for 50+ hours of entertainment is not expensive, there are many more ways to blow much more than that on less entertainment purposes.
Finally something you have said I completely agree with. I already said from the beginning, I'm not buying it. All of this started from me saying that this is the best progression in the scene so far. All you have said is true, and I don't doubt it one bit. But, I am still not wasting my money on another PS3, and then buying 10 others games to play on. I will wait for a open-source solution for the TB, but till then, it is my 360 and me.
