Before you go ahead and play the 1337 mini mod and reply how you're sick of n00bs complaining, well, **** you. I read that a lot of people that claim the scene is dead and before I thought what most of you probably think: "**** them, they are idiots for updating when they were told not to." Now, I'm starting to see the light. Before you go and act all high and mighty on your 3.55 and tell me how much of an idiot I am for updating, don't waste your time because I'm also on 3.55. I just feel for the people that talk about a 3.56+ cfw and get flamed by our so called "community" for doing so. Now, the scene is dying because of the fact that homebrew and CFW can't expand to all the people outside 3.55. Are all of them idiots for updating? No, just because people are on 3.56+ doesn't necessarily mean they updated "like idiots." People that buy PS3's now[unless you Ebay] are faced with 3.56+ consoles. Are we ****ing n00bs because we ask for CFW? Are we ungrateful assholes because we wish for CFW? If you're a scene whore and immediately jump when you hear 3.60 CFW and call us all idiots for "updating" wake up because that isn't always the case.
tldr: The scene will die if it can't expand outside our little 3.55 circle. It's been what, 6 months since 3.55? Whatever happened to Mathieu's buffer exploit? We hear about all these breakthroughs but there is no real progress mostly because devs feel there is no need for a 3.55 cfw is good enough. The problem with that is what about the people that buy their PS3's two, three months from now with 3.70 ofw? This is what is really hurting the scene.
