since youll be able to upload psp stuff on 360 do you think sony is going to sue microsoft over it because, somebody is going to make a mod for the 360 to play psp games really soon after it comes out.

I dont think that they'll get sued and even if they do microsoft will still survive they have a lot of money to pay for lawyers and will be able to put up a good case saying that it was hackers and that they never intended it to be used that way so it wasn't there fault.

No. It just can take stuff off the connected device. The PSP was used as an example, most likely.

And besides, Sony will release an update to prevent that.

Since the 360 is being used as a Media Center, it is probably going to just put songs onto it, just like your PC, so no, they are not going to get sued.

like conn said, it's file(music) from any connected device, and like conn also said , sony WILL release an update to prevent that. little do they know that that could help them with sales, people may buy a psp just for music on 360 and on the go...

Anything anti-360 is fine by me. For some reason I have a V for Vendetta against that console.

No because they clamed to its a console and its really a computer, the Xbox and Xbox 360.

As for the whole Sony and Microsoft thing, its iffy. If Sony were to sue Microsoft its most likely would be a royalty thing in the end, of which can any of us argue that Microsoft couldnt afford. Otherwise Microsoft's crack team of lawyers would just pull some (explitive deleted) about how the 360's ablily to play PSP games isnt a hack or inviolation of copyright laws... but then expect another lawsuit to pop up in either Europe or Japan about the same damn thing.

My bet is its at a music/video transfer level, not a pirate-games level. The first of which cant/wont lead to a lawsuit. Unless its pirated music/video, which isnt sony's nor microsoft's problem.

I don't actually care about either of those companies; I have a GameCube (and don't plan to get any form of Playstation or Xbox), and I use Macs. Screw them both!

Me too, im only getting A revolution. My bro may get a XBOX 360, but I really dont care too much for playstation. Dont have a PS2, and wont get a PS3.

Revolution is going to be cheapest, and my favorite of the three. I dont want to get into console wars or whatever, Ive just sticked to nintendo since the beginning!

As for sueing, it depends if anyone used each others tech. Sony stole the Dualshock stuff, and they got sued. If they just link together by like, say USB, there is no way anything can happen.
