New PS3 Games Arrive Requiring 3.56 Firmware, Fixes Surface


163w 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.

And now HOMEFRONT hits the scene , along with a patch for 3.41 which works fine. Just 3.55 users still wait for a working patch.

That what i do for all games. But DA2 seems to not like it. Tried different disks in, and different boot methods, (direct from MM, exiting to XMB, and select+x from MM) but no luck.

I asked MM to fake it for me when i first tried to load it (before checking here) do i need to undo that somehow before it will work?
