    The first game to work on the 3.55 firmware is here and would you believe it is (arguably) the most anticipated game for the ps3 ie. Uncharted 3.

    An eboot fix released by a ps3hax member has allowed pira-I mean ps3 owners to play the game without having 3.7 firmware.

    Is this the beginning of the era of 3.7 games on CFW? Discuss

    My friend, this is 100% AWESOME NEWS! Didn't know this!


    HOT DAMNNNNNNNN


    update: errrr seems like it's not quite working properly, you can't open Drake's Journal, and that will be game breaking i'll bet... If he automatically opens it, then bang! Pop goes the game.

    It is fixed by updating the game, but then it's the eboot fix doesn't work. :( buh!

    You should really include that big asterix in the OP.

    Also, the game is 49GB, not nearly worth that imo. To all those wanting to download it, have fun... hope it's worth all that space to download, unrar, and transfer it to you ps3.

    nah i wanted to point out that u can play the game with an eboot fix. maybe the new update was specifically for this issue. It just overwrites the older eboot with a newer eboot which has newer keys so if moogle can update the eboot to include the even newer keys then that would bring us back to cfw running it.
    i was just happy to hear that no hard mod is required to decrypt any 3.7 game. there is hope... there is always hope

    It's not exactly hard, just a long process of downloading and transferring it via FTP (Possibly a half a day or so depending on internet speed). If people really want it, they'll get it :P.

    You'd better get used to big games, next gen will probably be even larger.

    You can rip out 3D cutscenes, I believe.

    Isn't there a way to back up your owned games?
    Rent Uncharted 3, back it up, profit.

    I didn't see any report of the new fix for Uncharted 3 yet.

    It seems the first released fix is based on a pre-released version?
    It's bugging at mission 9 and 11.
    You need to download a save from the net to continue playing from that point.


    PS3Hax said that BattleField 3 use a new method to unlock the 3.70+ game, so maybe they could use that new method to really fix uncharted 3.
