Sony to PSP owners: drop dead

PSP hackers have added a ton of functionality to the handheld device. They’ve let it play games that cannot be purchased in stores, play movies that otherwise owners wouldn’t be able to watch (at least, not on the PSP), every time I’ve thought about buying one, I’ve had the hacked-on features.

Naturally Sony wants to stop this. They can’t stand the idea that they’re selling hardware at the expense of losing control of that hardware. Somehow, the idea of “giving the customer what they want” doesn’t seem to enter into the picture.

Perhaps that’s why I own a Nintendo DS…
