Sony Cripples PS3s That Don't Update Firmware

Absolut187 (816431) writes "Gaming site IGN reports that Sony is releasing a firmware update that will disable Linux support on the (pre-slim models of) the Playstation 3. Those who fail to update to the new firmware face an inability to sign into the PSN network or play BluRay or PS3 games, among other lost features. Does Sony have a legal right to do this? I'm sure they put something in the EULAs that states that they really own the console (and your first-born child). Does that give them the right to what is essentially extortion?"
