    [Editorial] ODDE, kill confirmed?: Signal the sirens, rally the troops.


    Today (or yesterday) Sony said yet again: "Hey guys, we know about your ODE device" with a new optional update 4.65.
    Though is not mandatory, probably is just an omen of what's to come.

    A little background story:

    ODE devices appeared out of the blue, 3 companies, 3 similar products of different quality but with a common goal.
    Fill those demanding consumers libido, handed in silver plate with a nice price tag on it: Also, letting those to play online without being spotted so easy.
    With a huge plus that this device works with "Unhackeables" models = 3K and 4K series.

    The ones who made this possible, just created a new *breed* of consumers. Clearly this is not a stupid strategy but a well executed one.
    Covering a huge range of people who doesn't want to read nor wait anymore for something else.
    Lesser evil:

    I still consider this devices a lesser evil in this situation. So far in almost 2 years, many people got bored with playing the *waiting game*.
    While PS3 scene made progress and there are many people making contributions to keep it alive, ODDe's managed to silent those annoying voices.
    But also managed to piss off other people who don't like the idea of emulation and want a free solution to all this.

    Creators of this devices, could care less of those opinions. After all people still buy them, not using a morality scale while getting them at expensive prices.
    We use our morals, each time we purchase something?:

    A good question with a nice analogy.

    Picture yourself entering into Puma or Adidas store, just to buy a pair of jeans.
    First thing you will probably do, is check the price, size and color and if those jeans will look nice on you.
    If you are satisfied with that, you will probably buy it and continue with your daily routine.

    But wait...You made a background check BEFORE making that purchase about those two brands?.
    I guess if you have an internet connection, you will know about the "Dassler Brothers".

    Even knowing about "Dassler brothers", people will buy those jeans. Why?, because as consumers they need to fulfil their needs.
    And if the product is good enough, who the fu$@! care about if those brands had a shady past?.
    You need a new pair of jeans, you buy them end of this history.

    Same modus operandi each time we have to buy something. Clearly we don't use a strict moral code, we don't need it.
    Otherwise will we have to go to a party/work or whatever, naked.
    Let's apply the same example to what happen with ODE too:

    1) Do consumers care where it came from?.

    Clearly not, if the product works and those features promised are there are more than enough.
    They don't have to struggle if CFW is 10 better and is FREE.

    As long as the device work, nobody will ***** about it.
    Let's get back to the topic :P
    CFW and ODE: Getting online.

    I use my PS3 with CFW OFFLINE and the other with OFW ONLINE. Many of us got tired of make the same reply over and over again about the risks of going online with a modified system.
    Which clearly (not the first time we said this nor the last) you are breaking Sony's TOS.
    You've read that TOS?, i didn't. I just use common sense, if my system was modified i will keep it offline at all costs.

    Many CFW users will continue to go online, no matter what; without knowing nor caring about WHO founded Sony. Do they need that data?, nope.
    If you buy a console is to play with it not to get morally conflicted by their policies.

    Yeah, restrictions could by a pain in the arse. But hey, those are the *game rules*. You bought something that if you read carefully, it's not even yours.

    With that in mind, indiscriminate and reckless people will continue to ruin online experience.
    After all you don't need to pay a monthly fee for a subscription to play online. Just get the game, buy some *hacks* and ruin others experience.

    ODE users as CFW users, do the same when comes to playing online.
    With CFW which is free, going online is not something new. When ODDE's appeared for the first time, that big promise was to get online without getting spotted.
    Meaning less chances of getting hammered faster than blackwidow's signature move.
    So probably while you were in PSN, you played against other ODE and CFW users countless times.

    Did you noticed?, could you spot the difference?. Furthermore could you tell which one which was clearly cheating was on CFW and which one was with an ODE?.
    I guess not.
    PSN will remain free for PS3 users?:

    Due to what i mentioned above, countless of illegal accounts accessing to a network where you don't have to pay unless you want PLUS.
    Chances are that Sony probably will get tired of this shi! anytime soon and close it and make an imperative subscription to use their services.
    Pretty much like PS4.

    Someone who is paying a monthly subscription, i highly doubt it that will jeopardize his account to cheat. Though i won't discard this idea.
    Reckless people make online experience terrible and if they are capable of pay for hacks, i guess they won't have any *moral issue* while doing that.
    ODE, kill confirmed?:

    Pretty much i covered most i wanted to say and it's not a rant per se, but more a point of view which you could agree with or not.
    I'm sure that they will block ODE from PSN. This 4.65 optional update was an not-so-encoded message alerting that they watch the traffic on their own network.
    Is just a formal *salute to those ODE users*.

    When the next update comes out, they will try for the third or 4th time to shorten ODE's lifespan.
    Many people using this device didn't got caught while going online, until 4.60 update and this one forced them to make some changes.
    But, IF the product keeps a fail ratio high enough and their consumers start to whine about not working properly.
    ODE companies will have to make a decision, like happened with TB (trueblue) back in time.

    Cease official support, cease manufacture process and hide for some months or years until they have something more to make business with.

    I guess if we see the ODE getting fully blocked, another device will replace it. If they don't find a workaround.
    As you may notice, people hating this devices and wanting free solutions those opinions and huge stances against them, Do NOT create awareness. Quite the contrary, more your bash something.
    More interesting it gets for many. I guess is human nature, as curiosity killed the cat; some managed to skin it before that to happen.
    So signal the sirens and rally the troops. Because next time, we might face another thing we probably don't like.
    No surprises though, happened several times and will continue to happen while we have more and more *uneducated* guests.

    With the Lesser evil gone, is the devils' feast

    Regards.

    No one actually knows if it killed them yet. Everyone Is just assuming the worst/best.
    Cobra hasn't even released their fix yet. And I haven't seen anyone saying that their ode doesn't work.
    It has the same fix that 4.60 has.

    @hellsing9 they can't charge money for PS3 PSN. They can't do it because it was one of their marketing points. They clearly stated that PSN would always be free on the PS3. This is why they only introduced/made PS+ almost mandatory on the PS4.

    And leave their network as it is?, i doubt it.
    You know sony and their policies, changes as the time passes.
    Probably when they stop making PS3 games (or left the console for dead) and there you got a perfect excuse to shutdown free access and make mandatory as well with another plan in sight.

    I know.
    In this article i didn't state that the optional could kill ODDE but a future update could do it.

    Besides the article title is = "ODDE, Kill confirmed?".
    No near a kill, just Sony waving back at ODDE's. At this rate they could care less, but one never knows.

    Well i read the title wrong there my bad (sleepy haaha late here)

    but this HAS ZERO to do with ODDEs that why all this fuss and ODE talk about this update is SO funny to me.
