    Is it like the PSP, where you can't play the newest game unless you have the newest firmware?

    In the future yes they will require a FW update. Think of it like the Wii and how all the big new popular titles need a system/firmware update.

    So I guess unless it gets hacked up the wazoo like the Wii we're looking at another cat and mouse game, that's a little depressing [​IMG]

    Pretty much. And we'll be seeing lots of threads asking if it's safe to update etc. which is deja vu all over again like the Wii boards. But it's a new experience so it will be interesting.

    This is a game you're going to have to get used to, the age of a single hack (hardware or software) being the end all be all has come and gone.

    that being said, at least many of the hacks of today are easier than the hacks of yesterday. i'd take the current generation of mods over modding a psx or saturn any day of the week
