172w ago - A few days back the PS JailBreak folks warned buyers about less expensive clone PS3 modchips, including the x3JailBreak and the PS3Key USB modchip, and today they sent out a wave of warning e-mails to those who pre-ordered the device not to update their PS3 Firmware beyond version 3.41 until it is confirmed safe to do so.
TQCast.com (linked above) confirms receiving one of these such e-mails, and reports it as containing the following notice, to quote:
"Just a friendly update email and some advice for you over the coming days and weeks.
While PS Jailbreak team have told us it should be possible to support future firmware versions on the PS3, it's is not guaranteed, they will need to access any newer firmwares than 3.41 and if needed release an update for the PS Jailbreak to support the newer firmwares.

172w ago - PlayStation Store Senior Manager Grace Chen is here with this weeks PSP and PSPgo Digital Comics Store update today, as follows:
Here's this week's PlayStation Store Digital Comics update.
Another week with great comics for your PSP, including more epic Cap, another bottle of True Blood, more Sonic, the fabulous Street Code....and the legendary Bum Bum the Painter.
STREET CODE is the tale of Jack, a native New York bruiser, fed up with living in the dregs of a drug-addled Alphabet City. After escaping to a fresh start in Brooklyn, Jack must now negotiate a new strain of street logic-where most everything he encounters is not as it seems.
With Street Code, creator Dean Haspiel returns to his semi-autobiographical roots and explores the emotional truths between prime and primate. Issue one is now available on your PSP - oh, and it's FREE, so check it out.
(To compliment the reading experience, why not shake your rump to Dean Haspiel's Street Code music mix here - a list of music he grew up listening to, including Public Enemy, Run DMC, Daft Punk and 2-Tone's finest, The Specials)
Elsewhere, the stunning Brubaker/Epting Captain America saga continues...
172w ago - SCEE's Ross McGrath of the PlayStation Store Team has posted up this weeks European PSN update today, as follows:
A quiet week this week since everyone who's anyone is at the big GC, but we've got a few nice bits and pieces for you to tide you over into September.
We have brand new demos of EA's NHL 11 and Ubisoft's H.A.W.X.2 for the PS3 crowd, along with a host of new add-ons for some great games.
As Richard already told you last week, Uncharted 2 gets a new skin pack, adding some more multiplayer characters for you to choose from (and don't forget the dynamic theme).
We've got two new characters for you to launch from your PAIN-a-pults, including Sergeant Jay and Jolly the Elf, (we figured August was the ideal time to give you a Christmas themed character). The final set of Marvel costumes releases this week as well, including Hulk, who I've heard is fond of smashing.
Six new PSP Essentials join the others on the Store, including a brand new digital release of Open Season, plus the latest LittleBigPlanet kits.
The real stars of the show this week are the oodles of Gamescom trailers we've got for you in glorious high-definition. All the big hitters are present and correct, with new trailers for KillZone 3, Motorstorm: Apocalypse,...
