F1 2010 is the First PS3 Game to Require 3.42 Firmware?
According to PSGroove (linked above) and DJLO at http://psx-scene.com/forums/showpost.php?p=525108&postcount=1, F1 2010 is the first PS3 Game to require updating to PlayStation 3 Firmware version 3.42 which blocks both PSJailBreak and the PS3 Proxy Methods.
I was on IRC and the news broke, apparently it requires you to update and if you cancel, it takes you back to the PS3 XMB. The war has just began and Sony made the first move: User 0 vs Sony 1.
To quote: "If you ignore the game's warnings, it throws you back to the XMB. Technically this should just require some editing to the PARAM.SFO's version, in order to get the game to boot on 3.41. However, time will tell."
IIRC, the PC and 360 versions went gold at the beginning of September but the PS3 version was delayed for some reason. The 3.42 update was released on the 7th so it is possible that this game does include it, which could have been the reason for the delay.
Well, if it's legit (assuming it is) there could still be other "unreported" games recently released that also require 3.42 but time will tell for sure.
Either way, they are definitely coming as everyone suspected.
Yeah no doubt they are coming then it will on like donkey kong to get a by pass working. But with our great dev staff here shouldn't be to long to get a fix. Really need a disc with 3.42 on it to play around with till then it's just a bunch of theories.
