Article: Does Sony Know ?!? Is 3.55 PSN Coming to an End Soon ?!?! –
Well, I can't say this is unexpected. To be completely honest, I'm surprised Sony hasn't fully done this already. For me, personally, I don't really mind that much, I'm not really a big fan of PSN titles, anyway. I still have plenty of 355 games to go through in the PS3 library, and by the time I'm finished with that I'm sure some new CFW will be available.
Meh **** sony **** PSN and **** the 3.6 firmware! FYI it's simple to patch these updated titles to play again. you simply need to obtain a working eboot. I realize this is easier said than done. But yeah PSN on 3.55 isn't really anything more than a comunications network in that we can only really chat with our friends and compare trophies. I could have told you sony was resigning things. figured that out when angry birds of all titles wouldn't load on my ps3 after installing from PSN. see I happen to know for a fact that they had a version of it I could run back when I bought it so it clearly has been updated. So yeah right now PSN is d.e.d. dead! Well mostly.
Not to get hopes up folks but I'm sure one day this will change!
I don't think it's as simple as you make it out to be. That means that any eboots that aren't archived somewhere else will be lost after being resigned. And where does it stop? They gonna resign all the old updates too? Or change the eboots to where old edats/activations have to be updated to stay functional? Even if it just amounts to nothing more than a pain in the ass it's still a pain in the ass
Maybe I being short sighted, and let me preface what I am about to say by saying that I am not a dev.....but dose it really matter what they do to the older games most if all of them are already out on various sites or on people 's Hard-Drives. and as far as the newer games isn't there a E3 CFW on the way and or like it or not TB is still a factor for now (at the time of my typing) %ony should have already done this...like dagrimmreepa said $ony should have done this already, it is amazing to me how late and slow $ony is and we are still as a whole still on 3.55 & 3.41 and quick to cut down any advancement free or not...
And while it is on my mind....one thing that I do not understand when you look at the Xbox scene you have to buy a drive to flash it, or the Jungle Flasher, or anything from Team-Xecuter (prices range from 4.95 up 99.00) and that scene what I can tell is moving along quite well. and if TB or E3 charged a 1 time fee to play everything to stay on top of Sony and allow me to enjoy the games that they are trying to block with the new updates and allow me to run showtime, multiman, my emulators PSP/PS2PSX Great!!!!
Sorry for saying so much I read a lot on this site and it gets to me after a while
Completely unrelated, but can I edit all of your news posts before you submit them? It's driving me mad over here. Every post has some sort of typo or just doesn't make sense! My inner editor is turning me into a literary Nazi.
Sounds like it's time to create an archive of all the <3.55 psn eboots.
I dont quite understand what the issue here is? Is it about getting games from PS Store when connecting to PSN on firmware 3.55? If yes, it is "luck" that PSN access works now, and who knows how long that it is going to last. PSN access on firmware 3.55 didnt work for like a year until recently, so i dont quite see where the "losing respect for the scene community" comes in here?
There excist pirated versions of a lot these older PSN games, so why not get those instead? I mean if you already bought the original game, it shouldnt matter much where you get the backup from. These releases wont get updated.
I dont think there is much point in updating the older updates since you only get prompted with the lastest update. Do the older updates still excist on Sony's servers by the way? As in, can you still access and download them?
