WARNING: 3.42/3.50FW consoles spotted in the wild!
Several members of this forum and others have been reporting buying brand new PS3 Systems that come with 3.42FW. Systems above 3.41 cannot be jailbroken.
While not all systems in stores are 3.42FW and people have still reported buying 3.40FW systems, the increased reports of 3.42FW systems can only be a sign of things to come with Sony attempting to combat the jailbreak on all fronts, and signals an incoming scarcity of consoles with 3.41 or below.
If you or someone you know buys a system that comes with 3.42 please post as much information as possible in this thread. (Including box description, barcode, other codes, SKU, etc. Pics plz!)
^ description not confirmed
Just got a ps3 160gb from the zellers moonlight madness and it came with 3.42
you can tell the new 3.42 firmware from the older 160 gb because the back of the box has a playstation move ad and the front has a netflix streaming ad on the front. the sku upc is 711719841807
Hope this helps.
Went ahead and took my chances on the holiday bundle currently in stores (includes Infamous and NHL 11). System firmware is 3.50 so it looks like I'll be taking it back and hunting for a used model.
