New PS3 Games Arrive Requiring 3.56 Firmware, Fixes Surface


Sponsored Links
195w ago - As expected, history repeats itself and today the inevitable happened with two new PS3 games (Dragon Age II and MLB 11 The Show) arriving that require version 3.56 PS3 Firmware, however, PlayStation 3 hackers have already began work on fixes using the familiar SFO/EBOOT modification methods.

To quote: "The first game, Dragon Age II, isn't due to hit retail shelves until March 8th, but hackers have managed to get their hands on an early leaked copy. After some experimentation, some people have reported success in getting the game to run on 3.55 with a simple modification to the version string in the PARAM.SFO along with a repackaged EBOOT.BIN.

Baseball fans will be disappointed to hear that the second game to require 3.56 is MLB 11 The Show. Like Dragon Age II, The Show isn't supposed to hit stores until March 8th. However, some users are reporting that certain stores have broken that street date and sold copies early. Little examination has taken place yet on MLB 11, so it is still unknown if the game can be modified to run on a 3.55 console."

From the ReadMe file:

1. Edit your Param.sfo to 3.5000 and replace it under /PS3_GAME/
2. Copy EP0177-BLUS30645_00-0000111122223333.pkg to USB Media
3. Install EP0177-BLUS30645_00-0000111122223333.pkg from "Install Package Files".
4. Boot game like normal, ENJOY!

PS. EDITED PARAM.SFO included if you don't know how to edit it.

Isn't forcing customers to update their firmware to play games offline illegal? Didn't Sony previously use the 'you don't have to update because you can give up all your online activities instead' defense in court, when they removed the other os feature?

Second that so much easier. Just make sure you keep the original EBOOT incase you need it in the future.
