Sony releases mandatory PS3 update in response to jailbreak
Permalink   


To the shock of absolutely no one, Sony has announced a new mandatory update for the PlayStation 3. Don't expect any new features, but if you have one of those new, fancy USB-based hacking devices you may want to hold off on updating. Just sayin'.

"Hi everyone! A minor update to your PS3 system is now available via system software update v3.42 that includes additional security features," Sony's Director of Hardware Marketing wrote on the official blog. "For more details and instructions on how to update the system software for the PS3 system, please visit the PS3 System Updates page."

Ah, the mandatory updates, who doesn't love them? This is Sony's way of blessing everyone who bought a PlayStation 3 with the gift of annoyance. We'll see how long it takes for another fix from the hacking community, which will be met with yet another firmware patch. This is like your parents fighting: you may not be involved, but you're still stuck in the middle and suffering for it.

ARS Technica has the details HERE!

Brings to mind the running instant messenger compatibility update battle between AOL & MSN a few years ago.
