213w ago - According to PSGroove (linked above) and DJLO at [Register or Login to view links], F1 2010 is the first PS3 Game to require updating to PlayStation 3 Firmware version 3.42 which blocks both PSJailBreak and the PS3 Proxy Methods.

I was on IRC and the news broke, apparently it requires you to update and if you cancel, it takes you back to the PS3 XMB. The war has just began and Sony made the first move: User 0 vs Sony 1.

For those curious about other PS3 game compatibility with PSJailBreak, PSGroove and PSFreedom be sure to check out the PS3 JailBreak Game Compatibility List and add to it if possible.

To quote: "If you ignore the game's warnings, it throws you back to the XMB. Technically this should just require some editing to the PARAM.SFO's version, in order to get the game to boot on 3.41. However, time will tell."

Simply edit the PARAM.SFO... Not hard. Change 3.42 into 1.8 or somthing...

Think I'll play this on PC when it comes out. Have the 360 version but it will look oh so much prettier with my 5870 running it

Hmm, F1 okay. But who cares about the game ? Hope other game developer don't use that requirements.


It's not really a new trick. I'm pretty sure all developers include whatever the latest available firmware is at the time. And if not I'm sure they'll start. It's just that there's lag time since a game can 'go gold' weeks before a new firmware is released so it's too late to include it so it will usually take a month or two before you see retail games with that firmware on it.

Most likely all game developers will use that requirement because if they don't Sony force them to and it would be stupid not to because it would hit there sales as everyone would just download the game.

If this game works with 3.41 then they'll sort it out and make sure future releases won't and everyone's going to be annoyed because some of the biggest release on PS3 are coming out soon but i think it will be fixed by November some of the biggest games are coming out.
