I think everybody has a different opinion on the subject, my point is that removing Sony's DRMs to add their own instead is pure evil. I don't think many cracking devices had that type of security in the past (that, or I didn't care enough back then)
I don't really mind people who pirate, and I don't really mind those "piracy only" dongles. However I have problems with a dongle that was engineered in a way that it does not solve the DRM issue, but just shifts it.
My personal problem with Sony's PS3 and consoles in general is the fact that everything is DRMed. For the same reason I hate that I cannot legally copy my DVDs to my computer, and the fact that this is enforced with DRMs, I don't like the idea that I cannot play my games on the hardware I want, if I want to (this goes both way, I want to be able to play homebrews on the ps3 if I want to, and I want to be able to play PS3 games on my PC in the future if I want to).
DRMs prevent the customer to use the product they purchased. Those DRMs can come from Sony or True Blue, they are the same **** to me. So for me, True Blue is clearly not a solution to my problem with the PS3, they are just shifting the problem somewhere else.
This is my problem with True Blue, and this is the same reason I have an Android rather than an iPhone, etc... I've tried to make that clear many times, but it seems a majority of people simply don't understand what's fundamentally evil with DRMs.
