You're right. The other os lawsuit won a settlement for those effected. People should assert their right to use the hardware as they choose. But game consoles are built around the concept of restricting the use of the hardware and forcing developer to pay the manufacturer for the right to create software for it. Why support this model of hardware manufacture? Aren't you just giving them more motive to do this again. It won't surprise me at all if game console manufacturers do this again, even if there's a lawsuit. I think (from their perspective) the cost of the lawsuit is minimal compared to their assertion of IP rights.
