Red Dead Redemption Requires PS3 Firmware 3.21 or Higher


Sponsored Links
222w ago - This weekend TheSixthAxis.com (linked above) reports that Red Dead Redemption (released on May 18 in North America and May 21 in Europe) requires updating your PlayStation 3 entertainment system to PS3 Firmware 3.21 or higher, which also removes the OtherOS functionality along with the ability to use the PS3 Exploit and likely PS3 Custom Firmware.

However, according to several Forum members (including blood911, Chivafighter and IanJ) it may actually require up to PS3 Firmware 3.30 depending on your region.

Additionally, IanJ also reports that ModNation Racers requires PS3 Firmware 3.21 to play it on Sony's PlayStation 3.

To quote from TSA: "Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption not only requires that particular system software to run, but handily includes it on the disk for easy installation, too.

Chances are there have been other games out since April 1st that required the OtherOS removing firmware update, but Redemption is likely to be one of the higher profile titles to do, and as far as we know this isn't stated on the box at all so consider this a notice if you're still to pick up the game."

The decision is now left to the end users: Update your PS3 console to the latest Firmware to play new titles and game online, or hold out for GeoHot to release his PS3 Custom Firmware with hopes that more PS3 hacks are discovered and new PS3 exploits surface to further unlock the PlayStation 3.

Of course, for those who can afford it, there is another option... simply buy a second PS3 and update it to the latest PlayStation 3 Firmware version while keeping your pre-3.21 FW machine with OtherOS in the closet until it can be put to good use.

Boy, it was the same level of necessity like your post.. so have fun, and only for info.

i don't "don't like xbox360". i only laughed about a console who have same count of errors and failture functions like windows vista
before I continue is better than I say to You that I'm a proud PS3 owner but also proud XBOX 360 Owner.
same level of necessity ? I'm not totally agree Warrorar.

I was talking about some other opportunities that you simply don't like. Anyway Windows Vista have his problems fixed with windows 7 XBOX 360 have his problems (RROD but can be fixed) but also PS3 have his problems (see optical drive, changed and rechanged), YLOD (where you cannot escape also if fixed because unfortunately come back) etc.

so Sony is not so perfect respect to Microsoft. unfortunately Sony was perfect only for the things of her interest.. protection protection and protection.

I'm asking... Why in this topic as other option there is to buy a second PS3 (for me give to money to a company that absolutely not deserve it) rather than take a beautiful XBOX 360 ?
This is an easy one... its because - try as you might, the XBox won't play PS3 titles and can not go onto PSN.

Like said before, this is no surprise. $ony has cleverly handled the whole situation since EgoSnot's supposed hack.

but there is still hope (but not from EgoSnot).
i bet you where one of those who posted on his blog "wah you are such cool geohot! can't wait for your custom firmware."

and now flaming him because he did what was needed for getting the way. without geohot there would be still a otheros yes, but without him there would be no dump of lvl1 and even lvl2.
