206w 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.

It's people like this is the reason Sony will try to fight this till there death.
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
