SONY COMPUTER ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES REMOVAL OF THE GAMEOS FEATURE FROM THE PLAYSTATIONŽ3 SYSTEM IN NEXT UPDATE
PlayStationŽ Security updates will remove GameOS features due to piracy.
Tokyo, August 27, 2010 – Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) today announced that it will remove the GameOS feauture of its PlayStationŽ3 (PS3™) system. The removal will coincide with the v3.50 update to be released by the end of this month in Japan, North America, Europe/PAL territories, and Asian countries/regions. Users will still be able to enjoy immersive video and audio on the PlayStationŽ3 system, although only on movie titles. Support will be added for the PlayStationŽMove motion controllers, as well as the ability to watch stereoscopic 3D content.
Bringing in SCE’s expertise in both entertainment and technology acquired from previously developing games, four sound fields and 3d vision enhancements for existing 2d titles have been designed with the help of SCE’s previous expert game designers, to optimize the cinematic experience of all forms of entertainment.
Through the introduction of new peripherals, SCE will continue to further expand the PS3 platform and create a new world of computer entertainment that is only possible on PlayStation – except for games, or Linux.
haha! lol i can see some news reporter thinking this is true and making it on the news.
I read this thread wrong and thought it said OtherOS. lol. Then I got really confused, then I was like, daym you played me like a fool.
The add to cart button isn't working :'( That pineapple looks really ripe... I would pay $99.95 for that, probably closer to the manufacturing cost than compared to the PS Jailbreak.
I think its hilarious that so many "reputable" sites are reporting this as real. The commenters on those sites are going nuts.
Would be more believable if instead of removing the game function it:
'removes XMB' &
'all disk based mediums will auto-boot once it has passed the security analysis (PSN Network connection and latest firmware update required)'
'In addition, as an added benefit to all Playstation Plus Subscribers, XMB access will be allowed, upon acknowledgement of their request, for 1 hour of their choice each month. Sessions will be available for use Monday-Friday, 7AM-5PM, so that your activities may be monitored for your safety, provided at no additional cost. (Playstation Plus Subscribers only)'
Absolutely. If the Boss doesn't mind of course. Here's one link that doesn't make mention of it being a joke:
There are a few more like this site that don't get the joke. Reading their comments sections is a hoot. "O NOES! SONY'S GONE TOO FAR!"
