Need advice for buying new PS3 for Kmeaw 3.55
I have an older 80GB Motorstorm PS3 that still works, but is starting to chug and show its age. I am considering buying a new PS3 slim so that I will have an alternative for if/when my 80GB bites the dust, and not be stuck having to buy a second hand system to avoid OFW 5.56 that will surely be on future new PS3 systems.
Are there any reports that new PS3s are already shipping with 5.56? Any estimates as to when this might start? In other words, in your estimations, how long will non-5.56 systems be available on store shelves?
How likely is it that 5.56 will be defeated sometime in the future where I can holdout buying a new PS3 until my 80GB dies, and still get a new PS3 and use kmeaw? Or at the very least wait until a price drop to buy, and not worry about 5.56 getting in my way of using kmeaw?
My money is tight, but if i need to bite the bullet to guarantee having a functioning kmeaw-enabled console for the future, I will do it. What do you guys suggest?
