Why even add the feature if your just going to patch it out?
Well this is stupid.
april fools trollan
As soon as Geohot's hack popped up, we knew it was going to happen... In the end it was the best way to stop any hacks going further on their system but not the best choice their customers
Going by the various sources it seems real. It doesn't matter to me because I've got a slim and never had it in the first place.
This is incredibly stupid. The Other OS feature was part of their product from the very beginning. Removing it now is a huge stab in the back for legitimate customers. Blaming it on hackers is just not going to work. They should have just patched the hypervisor if they cared about it that much.
Imagine if they did this with other functionality. Like, I don't know, disabling playback of movie files because everyone should just buy their movies on Blu-Ray...
What he ^^ said. Sony are shit scared of what happened with PSP and don't want the same to happen with PS3
Do people actually use OtherOS?
Still sad to see it gone.
never touched it because you needed to format to use it
anyway maybe just an april fools joke
The OtherOS feature was the path of hacking the PS3 by using Geohot's exploit was released a few months ago.
oh noz you can kiss hacking the ps3 goodbye than
Sony's good at getting class action lawsuits filed against them. Having a major feature as a main selling point and then taking that feature away is pretty much guaranteed to get them another one. Sure, they'll say the update is optional, but as the source stated, it really isn't.
Edit: Not that the lawsuit would change anything; they'll just do it anyway and give everyone $6.84 in PSN points (or whatever they call their fake online money).
They just borked one of their console's pros. They basically just said "We're going to make our console a little more shittier now, kkthnxbai"
Dont update it then unless you really want 3D. For me, nope! I wait for geohotp and hacker team to have backup eloader or something in the near future. If you want that then do not update it!
Sorry Sony, no thanks and never will update it from you!
lol im stuck on FW 3.01 ... lol
This is only going to lead to hacked updates aka CFW, for getting around this update and future ones. Sony you fail and make hacking teams now work harder and faster.
Yeah, just like the PSP! See how much people are hacking at it, there are so many CFWs out there I can't even choose one! [/sarcasm]
Yah, he pretty much got to where the other hacker's got and stopped.
Because you want to keep Other OS? You should update before april first then. That way, you'll update to 3.15 instead of 3.21, meaning you'll keep Other OS and future games might not require an update (after all, 3.15 is higher than 3.01).
