    Sony’s on a roll, bringing firmware updates to not just one, but two of its legacy systems. Released today was OFW 4.85 for the PlayStation 3, which “improves system performance”. If you’re looking to get a PS3 and are afraid of this being an unhackable firmware, worry not, as scene dev Joonie has already released an exploit for 4.85. However, there is no reason to currently update to that firmware at this time, as not all of the standard hacked PS3 tools are available on the new HFW 4.85.1 just yet.

    I hope this isn't the same shit that Nintendo is doing with the 3DS and WiiU where they're putting time bomb that takes away the credit card option in Europe because of the new bill.

    The 360 actually did have an update recently. It was useless too.

    Definitely not get it unless you want to make your PS3 unhackable.

    All of these updates are inter-connected with a recent EU decision. I see it all.

    inside your fridge
    Everyone seems to be wondering what it changed.


    I'll tell you. It literally changed the version number.... That's it. No seriously, Sony is just pulling a fast one.... They love to see people scramble :)

    inside your crappy old PC
    can someone explain the EU's decision to remove CC'S (even if it doesn't affect me directly cause i live across the pond from you guys) like does it only affect past gen consoles?
