There really is certain circumstances where this product is a cherry.
What about the people with the dualboot?
You guys know damn well sony is going to shut down cfw users online or figure out how to detect cfw with the next firmware update and ban anyone that even tries to log on.
Dualboot users can have their cake and eat it too. I get all my homebrew and linux and still have the ability to play all my pirated games online. Im not forced to purchase any certain ode because i have my keys already. So the only factors will be support, cost, advertised funtionality.
I've done a little research and the xk3y team has put out about 15 updates in as many months. They seem to have their **** together as far as support and i've read that getting banned from live seems to be nothing more then rumors, but i understand the risks. I expect cost will be cheaper if they dont have a key extraction method for newer consoles by then and as far as functionality,well, playing games is whats its all about.
I dont know, i plan to sit on the fence and just watch for now but i have full intentions on buying one.
These ode's have been around for awhile for other consoles, why not the ps3's? I just think an ode will pimp my system to the extreme...
I'm sorry if my views dont agree with yours but you have to admitt, an ode isn't such a bad idea for my setup.
