Sony pulls XCP CDs, offers to replace bought copies with regular CDs - Engadget

And the good news keeps on coming. This is excellent. But, one of my initial objections to having to register to get Sony's fix for the rootkit, still stands. This is a customer data mining windfall, for Sony. And, as Engadget says "We’re not entirely sure why Sony had to wait this long to do it"

  1. I think this is basically what I suggested Sony do on the show on Sunday. I think Peter had the reason they didn't do it sooner-- it costs a lot. I'm guessing that the bad publicity really was starting to cost them more than it cost them to do the right thing.
