List for new games that req. newer FW?
Is there a list for which of the newer games need the newer FW?
I'm on cfw5.00 and I'm not sure if I should update for newer games or not.
I don't know if there is a specific list available, but I do know that Madden 10 caused quite a controversy with it's firmware requirement. Some people in the homebrew world just simply created an exploit that would return the firmware value as the value of a txt file. So thus you could have a FW version 9.0 if you so chose.
"Where there is an engineer, there is a reverse engineer... and when he fails you find an industrial technology major to find a way around the problem" (a little quote from a friend).
EDIT: I should have looked before posting, but good 'ol wikipedia does it again. See link:
