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.

I hate Baseball, and i hate RPGS... so SCREW the games an hack the update itself... take 3.56 and smash it apart just for the heck of it, it's always much harder to pick up the pieces.

According to the info from the scene release of MLB 11 the workaround method is the same as Dragon Age with .pkg files included. On a side note there is a working copy of Bulletstorm from Europe finally.

Tested on 3.55 kmeaw CFW, since game requires 3.56 you will need to do the following:

1. Install pkg file included in pkg folder
2. Open up Backup Manager (tested on Multiman " --- " 1.15.03).
3. Change Param Sfo file from 3.56 to 3.55
4. Load it up with a game disc in drive
5. Play the game
