239w ago - 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?

this should really start the motors eh... Oh we don't require you to update it's your "choice" so now not only can we not use ps network when we dont update we cant play the most recent games either... so those who were holding 3.15 or older firmwares can't play new games even though they chose not to update and not to use ps network.

Sony can take that game - turn it sideways and shove it right up the CEOs rear, this should help with the lawsuits they have pending already...

Death is to strong... Sony should be fighting the HIGH prices of the games!!

At 64€ for a new game?? Put in on 30€ and 80% more people will buy it!

Either way, they are definitely coming as everyone suspected.


Yeah no doubt they are coming then it will on like donkey kong to get a by pass working. But with our great dev staff here shouldn't be to long to get a fix. Really need a disc with 3.42 on it to play around with till then it's just a bunch of theories.

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.

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...
my thought.
