192w ago - As scheduled, today the PS3 Firmware 3.21 update is available for download and as Sony previously confirmed it disables the OtherOS functionality in an effort to make the PlayStation 3 entertainment system more secure.
More details to come as they are available, including a full PS3 Firmware version 3.21 changelog. At the moment, all that is available from the PlayStation Japan site according to TheSixthAxis.com is the following, to quote: "Firstly it appears the quality of of PlayStation format software from the Store has been improved, presumably referring to the PS1 functionality (FFIX?).
Secondly, it appears that the security of MP4 video playback has been boosted too, removing some vulnerabilities."
• The [Install Other OS] and [Default System] features have been deleted.
• The playback quality of some PlayStation¬® format software that is downloaded (as a purchase or for free) from PlayStation¬®Store has been improved.
• A security patch was added to address security vulnerabilities that may occur when playing MP4 format video files.

Nah man windows xp is outdated its time for you to try windows 7 i will never go back! Windows 7 has Xp mode if i want to run xp stuff. Also windows 7 will be cracked fully soon and it will be better than xp for piracy. Not that i use it for that anyways..
I have question also? Since Sony has removed the OtherOS from the ps3 does this mean if a person skips that frame-ware update, does that mean if you install the next firmware whatever one it is will the firmware still remove the OtherOS?
i think the intent of getting the PSN details (login/pass) is to spend the money you already put on there + if you have your account details on it still, they can put hundreds of dollars on PSN to spend spend spend.
