Hello, I just wanted to provide everyone with a head's up that the next PLAYSTATION 3 system software update (v2.80) will be coming soon. The playback quality of some PLAYSTATION 3 format software has been improved.

It also appears they have put a damper on Open Remote Play according to PS3 Hacks:

This is what Dashhacker had to say (basically the same thing): As some of you may already know, Sony has blocked Open Remote Play as of PS3 firmware v2.80, June 24th. At this time, ORP will no longer work for longer than about 30 - 60 seconds. I've only looked at the problem for a few minutes but it seems that they've "poisoned" the video stream by some means rather than changing the keys or cryptography.
Apparently all Sony did in 2.8 was just check to ensure if the MAC was the same

For those having issues with ORP in 2.8 a temporary fix is detailed here: [Register or Login to view links]

Another hidden feature in 2.80 - All the add on controllers (GH / RB, Buzz etc.) are NOT mapped to controller 1 anymore so you don't need to keep pulling them out or changing your normal controller to port 1 everytime you want to play another game now

This firmware version is not mandatory.

So, there are some people saying there is a evident "backdoor" posibility in this update... Maybe Sony wants to open his hand a little bit...
Nah, it's probably just that the patch has very little useful in it.


The CompatibleSystemSoftwareVersion was used once before, I think around 1.70 or 1.90. I think all this tells us is that PSN hasn't changed since the last release.

there are a very few people who actually know anything about the PS3 on a programing level... and a whole lot that blow it out their ass.
I want to believe their words.

No, i am reading it on another forums, but it's nothing clear, they are just supposing it, i think... Time to wait.
