F1 2010 is the First PS3 Game to Require 3.42 Firmware?

Sponsored Links
227w 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."

Sony should include a script into their game compiler that says "del /dev_hdd/game/launch123456/*.*" It'd be much more effective than, "Please update your system to play"

^^^ all xbox games are the same size... mainly padded though i think...

PS3 games aren't padded.

Well if $ony didnt remove OtherOS a lot of people would be a little happier with them. If they also didn't go back on their word we all might be a little happier with them.

Until I can play backups and originals online I will not give $ony another cent. Well, how can I give them any money if I cant get on PSN? They are the losers on this deal.

Maybe you don't, but plenty of other people are waiting to play the best F1 game since Sony got the F1 license and screwed the genre over a couple of times..

That said, I'll be checking it out shortly, will post my findings in a couple of minutes..

Downloaded the RiSq release, can confirm the SFO specifies 3.41

Oh thats the new trick of the game developer to make us updating, so that we can't use the Jailbreak.

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

Ups, great list - i`ve never seen that before. its worth a bookmark, thx for that

ok, i`m just downloading this: F1.2010.PS3-JB-RiSq. i stuck @ work at the moment but can tell all of you the result tomorrow, same time.

what about the guy who stated, that after he negated the update to 3.42 and went back to the xmb, all other games since then ask him to update is that trustworthy?

It's definitely not against the rules here, as we have a scene release listing that gets updated daily.

What's up here? Now we have a bunch of opposite statements from the users. some say, they have tested it and it just works fine and others are reporting, that it starts but doesn`t recognize the controller.

perhaps it will be better to list the (scene) release names as there could be a difference in region, file structure or something similar. of course only if it is not against the board rules.
