April fool or not?
yes i believe its a april fools joke
Quite retarded april fools joke then.
it was announced a few days ago, you dont do april fools that far in advance
Its just Sony removing more features from their not so great console again. Next they will disable the PS2 chip in the early PS3's so nobody will have backwards compatibility.
new ps3 slim has backwards compatibility as far i'm aware so that would be even more retarded like forcing people to buy a ps3 slim.
Yeah its real, they removed the Other OS option from all PS3 with the update this morning citing hacking as the cause....its all to do with that guy Geo(the one who hacked the iPhone), he has been banging on now for the past few years he intents to hack the PS3, and it seems that of late he had posted on his blog that he had done it via the Other OS.......I of course have no idea if he was telling the truth or now but it seem either way Sony were not taking any chances and have now shut it all down.
So a pat on the back with a claw hammer for a hacker who's ego has caused i don't know how many PS3 owner to lose a feature from their PS3, and a putting wedge round the head and face for Sony for taking the easy way out and using a sledge hammer to put band aid on.
would be great if you get another update tommorow which would enable it again ?
^^Oh now that would be priceless.
the slim doesn't have the chip thats for sure... maybe software but iirc it doesn't have even that at the moment.
PS3 slim has no backwards compatibility at all. Only able to play PS1 games.
in fairness though, as much as i wish they all had backwards compatability, why should they do it?
it will cost them more to support it and lets face it, PS1/PS2 sales aint exactly amazing are they? lol
Poor non-slim PS3 owners
My ps3 broke a month ago, YLOD. Anyway, didn't want to wait any longer so when i brought my console in to get a refurb, they only had the NEW 80GB Phats. I had a PAL launch 60gb.
So looks like after 1 month i've lost/gained, CECHCxx - CECHKxx
Some Playback option(super audio cd)
Flash mem reader
and Linux support
70w (which is good)
65nm(cooler compared to 90nm)
Black and Silver trim
20gb xtra hdd(but i have a 320gb anyway)
Newer build console
Cheaper to run
Linux sucked on the PS3, tried it many times.
Only thing i'll miss is the USB. But i'll just buy a usb hub.
