Didn't we hear this same thing about PS3 before launch? I think it's all hype to drive blog traffic. While I'm sure the console manufacturers would love to do this, I honestly won't believe it until I see it, confirmed. Until then I don't understand why everyone get's their shorts in a knot...

This has nothing to do with censorship, that would be if they didn't let the games be made at all, that would be censorship. Enforcement of ratings, while perhaps annoying to minors, is an entirely different topic. To quote a certain Spaniard. "You keep using that word, I do not think it means what you think it means.."

Working on computers myself for a living, I disagree with this. The people who come in with machines infected with malware are the ones who will say all they do is go on the internet with their machine, and they don't always get how that can get them in trouble. The same with changing the battery on an ipod, you may not think about it until it becomes a necessity. Mind you, I would wager not seeing any way to get the thing open probably does give some indication though...
