F1 2010 is the First PS3 Game to Require 3.42 Firmware?
According to PSGroove (linked above) and DJLO at PSX-Scene, 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."

Well, if it's legit (assuming it is) there could still be other "unreported" games recently released that also require 3.42 but time will tell for sure.
Either way, they are definitely coming as everyone suspected.

Didn't PSP Games do this as well. I thought all we did was change the version.txt file to show we had that FW version. Correct?

the new games all are going to this fw. the possible solution is to make an image with the SAK and then edit it to JB edition...

Even if all the games from this day come with 3.42. For me itīs not a problem. Because the money I save playing all the others using the dongle, worth it!

IIRC, the PC and 360 versions went gold at the beginning of September but the PS3 version was delayed for some reason. The 3.42 update was released on the 7th so it is possible that this game does include it, which could have been the reason for the delay.
