September 20, 2010 // 6:28 pm - 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."

F1 2010 is the First PS3 Game to Require 3.42 Firmware?

Having an internet connection isn't even relevant since games have the update on the disc.

Hi everyone,

I have not been able to chat further with this person since seeing the scene release. It seems like the game is in fact working.

The submitter may have had problems with his disc or a bad dump. I try and think not everyone is full of crap

Sorry for any confusion we may have caused.

According to a few people on IRC, this game actually has 3.41 on it not 3.42 FW so ya... possibly a red herring but 3.42 titles are bound to surface soon enough.

Wait wasn't there a way to edit the eboot.bin file or one of the files in the game to make it think it only needs 3.41? or am I wrong? I looked for the post but didnt see it.

I'm sure on the case of the game will say it requires 3.42 - or something to that effect.

Anyway, the point is: some games will REQUIRE the newer system, who knows what fruit they could have added to the 3.42 dash that FIFA needs to use. Probably not true.

It is the same for the xbox 360, some games just do not run on older dash boards, because the newer system is needed for the game to function correctly.
