That's why they started doing the full digital releases day 1 on PSN as well - A lot of new games get a digital release. If you're from America the value seems okay, same price if not a little cheaper than retail. In the UK however our games market is that competitive no one EVER pays RRP. EA also seem to think they can charge £54.99 for some new releases... yeah okay EA.


I buy used, and like I said, I never got invested in a console DD service.

I'm hoping with the revitalization of the PS3's homebrew scene we see some more homebrew software. Would love to see someone port some remote desktop software ala VNC.

Never cared for PSN and what it has to offer.

Happy that i got my games running from HDD and using a decent media player without the need for internet/PC just to watch various media files.

My PS3 Slim is an undowngradeable version, it's currently running 4.25, if they ever bring a 4.30 CFW would I be able to upgrade or do you still need a 3.55 console to upgrade, if so what is the point of LV0 if the system is "wide open" surely I should be able to freely move between versions?

I think they still need to reverse engineer everything to figure that out. Either way I got an extra console waiting to upgrade CFW.

I'm wondering if they obtained the information through the PSN Store software upgrade. The timing seems oddly coincidental.

from my understanding you need a 3.55 version still , as they are unable to get the private keys needed for signing firmware and installing it on higher then 3.55

They have apparently known this information for quite a while, but have only now released is as an Chinese company were trying to sell chips/dongles using their knowledge and information, so rather than people make money off their work they have released it in to the wild.

This is what happened:
1. Someone developed a CFW called Bluedisk 4.25
2. That CFW asked you for a key to unlock eid0, so they were thinking to charge you for each key they gave.
3. Someone broke their security, and the keys were no needed.
4. Some tweaks were made, so you could be able to load latest games.
5. With the CFW opened, keys were published.

That's not what happened. Someone leaked the keys and tried to profit from the leak. The Three Musketeers have known the lv0 keys for awhile now.

Let's make this easier to understand
1- Three Musketeers have had this key for some time, and have sat on it.
2- Another group got a hold of the keys, and tried to sell them off
3- Three Musketeers didn't want people making a profit, so they released the keys ahead of the others so that no profit could be had

got it?
