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

201w 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."

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?

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.
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.

i have the same problem on "pure football" ... i stops after the intro, no loading anymore. i can exit the game normal with the XMB.
