For I knew you well.. Today "hacked" firmware for 3.55 came out, lets one play 'backed up games' with none of the hardware that was needed to "jailbreak" the PS3 (which HAD TO have 3.41 or some earlier firmware installed) I tried it with backing up my Gran Turismo 5 disc, it worked, good thing, now I can safely put the game away out of reach of my 15 month's VERY inquisitive hands (as well as all the other games) No idea if Sony will be able to block/ban people doing this on PSN etc, but for now, I guess those 'pirates' can.. The good thing, all the people with downloaded games backed up with the old "backup managers" in 3.41, these don't work. So these people will need to stay the way they currently are or wait for an update/patch for it (NO IDEA or care if it comes out) as I tried downloading one of these games and it doesn't work. Websites all say the same thing, so I guess future games will have less sales which means less developers will develop for PS3 (I guess)??
