Below are all the details, to quote: Hello PlayStation Nation! I hope you're a fan of PlayStation Plus and free video games, because you may have just hit the mother lode.
We've been working tirelessly with our friends at Capital One to put together a special PlayStation Card offer for our community, and I'm excited to finally share the details.

41w ago - Today /GriFFin reports that OxweB has apparently leaked the True Blue PS3 disc BCA codes (although curiously a source wasn't specified), however, they are now conveniently deemed useless as the DRM-infected USB dongle itself.

Some additional PS3 Blu-ray fix updates are outlined HERE, however, a more stable solution is still being worked on.
To quote from garyopa on one work-around: "I was able to restore one machine I had, by copying over all the files I had in the /dev_flash2 and /dev_flash3 back to the HDD, that I had saved before when it was on v3.41"
Forum member p666 also has expanded on the PS3 Blu-ray fix a bit HERE...
