Not saying theres any truth to this rumor. However, its exactly what they would do. Once your sales drop off and your units arent moving like they were in the beginning, you need to find a way to move more units. Selling a new and improved TB dongle would only piss off the clients you already have. So once your sales fall off, you package a new dongle under a different name to get all your previous clients to buy the new dongle and reap in even more money. Of course you give out 2 previous eboots because theres no loss, no extra work, and offers proof and suckers in all the old and maybe even a few new clients.
Soon people will have more purchased dongles than actual games on their shelves. At least the old games are useful and not dust collectors like the dongle(s).
Also of course you will get the CFW for free. Its no different than TB. You get a free updated CFW but you need the dongle to use the FW.
The downfall as stated is that they have proven you dont NEED the dongle. The dongle is just how they are making their money and preventing anyone from giving their work away for free. If it was like the modchips of old where you NEED the dongle, id be more than willing to buy them. But forcing pointless hardware on people is the real piracy. E3 may be respected but I still dont like the way its being handled and I dont like being at the mercy of their timetable for eboot releases.
If they release tools to fix your own eboots i would reconsider my stance somewhat. Otherwise they can stick their dongle and their slow release of eboots up their pirates booty.
