Ok, this is a little creepy. Say what you want I find it a little coincidental that Sony already announced a new console in the works and new games are all 3.6 but 2 have a 3.5 patch before the games were even released. I know some are on the dev networks but seriously, a company who has gone thru hell and back over security is letting games that are already secured be patched with something that defeats said security measure. Does that not constitute legal action against the devs themselves for effectively by passing Sony's security measures?

But you know, I'm not gonna complain, this whole scenario is a strange, it's gonna be interesting to see how it plays out in the end.

oh thanks! So I guess if Portal 2 gets an update, and its not signed as 3.60 then we are in luck?

I was referring to 3.6000 game updates rather than 3.6000 games (of which there are a bunch).

Yep, it does as reported but thus far there hasn't been any update patches or work-arounds for it.

Yes to everything about MM.

Updates will never overwrite a game. You can un-install the updates whenever you want (even 3.6000 ones).

If you update is it says 3.6000 required - just uninstall the update (and the game will work again).

AFAIK: the only games with 3.6000 updates are; Killzone 3, Gran Turismo 5 and inFAMOUS 2.

yep it does.. so I download the update through Multiman - and then install as a Package, then re-run game through multiman? or is there something else involved? Also do I need to 100% check the update is able to be patched before even attempting to update to prevent a 3.60 signed update being written over game?

Yes: it does indeed. For a more indepth reponse:

Games with a 3.6000 signed eboot cannot be launched on current CFW solutions (as FW 3.5500 doesn't have the 3.6000 keys).

Game updates effectively replace the eboot that comes on the disk, with an updated version.

If the game update pushed out is not signed with the 3.6000 key and instead the 3.5000 key - the requirment to play the game is reduced from 3.6000 to 3.5000.

This is how you can play 3.6000 games such as Duke Nukem Forever and Operation Flashpoint: Red River on 3.55 CFW.

It also works the other way Gran Turismo 5 (a 03.5000 game) recently had a patch (v1.10) containing a 03.6000 eboot - if you were to update to this patch the requirment to play the game is increased from 3.5000 to 3.6000 - meaning you would not be able to play this game anymore on current CFW solutions (you can always just stay on older updates, or not update at all)

Games such as Portal 2 do not have any updates released and is therefor impossible to change the requirement of 3.6000 to anything usable for current CFW solutions.

Hope this helps.
