    So I just got a new PS3 and just finished softmodding it as stated here: http://gbatemp.net/t280915-ps3-softmod-guide


    But then it says PSN doesn't work anymore. Is this true currently? And is this permanent? What if I want to play my official games online? Thanks.

    Regards.

    theres nothing you can do to get online besides upgrading to 3.60 and giving up any chance for CFW and homebrew

    So I can't play my official Madden 11 online??? That SUCKS. It's not worth it, imo, I guess all that work I did for nothing. I'm going to update to 6.0...

    I know, right. [​IMG] Wouldn't have minded if you couldn't go online with pirated games, since I only pirate to test the games anyway. [​IMG]

    What if I factory reset my PS3? Can I get back v3.55??? Found out Madden Online is useless to me when I'm broke and can't pay the 10 bucks. [​IMG]

    No. They don't allow downgrading.

    You used to be able to purposely fuck it up and use the recovery mode, but now it won't exit recovery mode, so you'll need to send it to Sony (and they'll send it back with 3.60 again).

    I can't believe no one has made a mod to do this. [​IMG] It seems entirely possible, isn't it?

    ... I don't even know how to respond to that.

    You were told that by updating to 3.60 you'd give up your chance for homebrew and backups.

    You did it.

    Now you have to WAIT for somebody to hack 3.60.

    I thought PSN was free. When I loaded up Madden from my Blockbuster disc, I expected to go online for free, like the Madden 11 on Wii, which I like a lot. But it said I had to pay 10 bucks. [​IMG] Then I expected PS Home to be cool, but it was so complicated, I didn't know what to do. All I could figure out was how to play Bowling, lol. Going online with the PS3 isn't as good as I thought. [​IMG]

    It's really not that complicated bro. PS Home sucks, the data you download is only temporary and you almost always have to redownload it.

    It's complicated because I don't know where to go just to enjoy some type of game. All I can seem to be able to do is enter an environment and walk around / go through portals. Not actually enter a game. Or get into any Gameplay.

    You can blame EA for that. You bought the game used/rented it so they want the $10 to make up for the fact they didn't get any money from you buying it. This isn't the case for other games (that aren't recent EA games). EA want your money, not PSN.

    Uncharted 2 multiplayer is pretty good, and a lot of people still play it. There's also Demon's Souls which has online features (which make up some of the core game IMO) and Red Dead Redemption is pretty good online too.

    Yeah, I have Uncharted 2, too. I don't really like multiplayer shooter games, lol. Mainly because I suck, lol. Maybe Co-op, but no one is ever on co-op on Uncharted 2. [​IMG]

    I should get GTA IV. Some Cops and Robbers would be nice.

    Enjoy your pirated games/homebrew. I hope it was worth it, because unless you upgrade to a OFW, you won't get on PSN...and even then you might still be banned.

    Somebody's got so much latent anger against people who mod their systems that they didn't read the thread?
