RedEaredSlider (1855926) writes "The hacker who settled with Sony after the company sued him for modifying his PlayStation 3 console is getting a lot of flak for not taking the fight further.

Hotz himself may have set the stage for some of the criticism. In an earlier blog post he wrote, "What if SCEA tries to settle? Let's just say, I want the settlement terms to include OtherOS on all PS3s and an apology on the PlayStation blog for ever removing it. It'd be good PR for Sony too, lord knows they could use it. I'm also willing to accept a trade, a legit path to homebrew for knowledge of how to stop new firmwares from being decrypted."
One commenter, "MX," says, "Sure, it's nice that it's over and people can move on with their lives... but I just think people expected a bit more of a fight than this."

Some were more pointed, such as "Night Breed." "So basically you settled for a job and took people's money giving them a false hope of settling for their rights? What do you plan to do with the money that was donated to you to provide a cushion for the legal battle? I hope you will be paying all those people back since you obviously didn't live up to your word.""
