two words...360 or pc. if the run ends here for ps3 games then so be it. there are still hundreds of games that will work with cfw3.55. i've always said this with my hacked game systems. take what you get and hope you get more. stop whining and if you "need" it, then do something.
i prefer pc games, but its lazier to play console games. my favorite about cfw, i want to buy some stuff from psn, but sony simply won't let me buy things from them. its says i must update and this ps3 system i own will NEVER be updated.
Basically you are saying that ripping, downloading, whatever is not piracy. I agree with you. Piracy is by physically stealing the game from the shelves, by that I mean, stealing the box/the game disc/ manual -- everything included because it is a physical copy of the game that was manufactured/produced on which money was involved.
You do realize that you're not actually hurting their pocketbooks by choosing to pirate their games, right? I mean, if you weren't gonna buy them anyway, then there's no actual loss suffered. You're also still promoting their name, using their product, and taking the financial burden of electricity to run them. If you're truly disgusted by their actions, perhaps surrounding yourself with more and more "Sony" isn't the best course of action....
Now, most of the people who pirate DO NOT have the intention to BUY the game so there is no actual loss involved. I do not care with how many argument people you can come up with. That's a fact.
I remember back in late 90's how people were making a big deal out of piracy -- thinking that 'it would hurt' the developers to further on making more games and blah blah blah. 11 years past and the gaming industry is/became the most profitable and the most powerful entertainment industry of the world.
I laugh at people who are against 'pirating' -- making a big deal out of it especially on this forum -- which is pretty much ironic.
I 'pirate' -- I rent and rip. Sometimes I do download when I have some brandwidth left. It doesn't make me a ****ing stealer or anything. I decided to have the game MY way. I see it as people/online friends who are uploading the game - like if your friend was lending you his game. So no loss -- and online DL is no money loss btw
Oh and last, to all the people defending this nonsence, atleast 95% of you atleast once downloaded an 'illegal' movie/downloaded an album or streamed a TV show -- or the best one, streamed/downloaded some 'copyright' (lol) p.o.r.n -- all that for free.
Well, I do believe the reason there's no "high horse riding" in the 360 scene is because as many have said, it's rather dead in comparison. Before tmb and others left, I do recall some bickering amongst some. The problem is that we're so far past 7371 dashboards, let alone exploitable CBs, that there's only a handful of jtag owners out there. Furthermore, devkits are more useful (albeit necessary) to 360 homebrew development until libxenon becomes a more viable solution.

AP 2.5 has been defeated. I don't know why you guys are bringing that up. The new disc format doesn't really have anything to do with piracy or anti piracy. But C4EVA will take care of it anyways.

Thought so.

You want an easy fix for a PS3 that has YLOD or 3.60 on it? GO BY ONE THAT HAS 3.55!! They still exist.
I'm sorry some people can't enjoy CFW, but is that the developers fault? No. Is that this communities fault? No.
The devs did this for fun. They are not obligated to release a 3.60 CFW nor are they getting paid for it.
If you people are gonna demand for a new CFW to be released, why don't you quit demanding and get off your ass and do it yourself. The first exploits were done through OtherOS I believe so take Graf's version of linux with all his HV tools and get to cracking. Otherwise you have no reason to demand for anything.
I mean don't get me wrong I pirate and I'll admit it. If I said I didn't i'd be lying my ass off considering everything that is sitting on this computer... But don't generalize like that because it only makes a fool out of both of us. Not everyone uses backup solutions for piracy.
Is it just me or does it drive you nuts when people can't differentiate between your and you're.
Your = something that belongs to you.
You're = You are
As for portal 2 no way anyone's playing it without the app keys. So don't expect an eboot fix anytime soon. I'm amazed how some act like everyone pirates games. What if they preordered and are getting the game day 1. It's not as if the ps3 will say, hey since it's a legit disc I'll bypass all the required methods and play it for you.
The scene isn't dead yet, it's on life support. Life support meaning the only ones keeping it alive are the homebrew devs. Showtime being the newest line of great homebrew in the line-up. Anyone who thinks otherwise needs to take a closer look at the development over the months from the beginning up until now. It has clearly lost momentum.
I know this has nothing to do with this topic but, I tried declining the new ToS with a fake account on my legit ps3 and guess what happend? Nothing, I could access the ToS again after declining. Which leads me to believe there's a grace period whether you don't accept it or don't turn on the ps3. It would suck for those who travel and don't get the chance to accept it during the grace period.
If that was directed at me, no. But I spend enough time trying to correct my grammar on college work so I don't care when I post on forums. I have enough stress making sure I dot my I's and cross my T's for college so surfing the internet is me chilling out. I only check for spelling and make sure that people can read my post. I don't look for little things like that :P.

its not only portal 2 that has 3.60 in it. Another game surfaced with 3.60 in it operation flash point red river. 3.60 era has begun so sit tight and whine all you want.
So cheers for those saying they dont need 3.60 keys or 3.60 CFW. I salute you!!!!
Hope it wont take long, really wanted to buy(yes BUY, valve=epic) Portal 2 for ps3 but no way i'm updating for it :/
Pc version it is.
Yes i download "illegal" stuff, but atleast i support the good devs. The way you do it is kinda pathetic and bankrupting the few awesome devs around...

ALL that within the last 6 months
