    Sony: phat PS3s will not lose Other OS feature

    Sony: PS3 Firmware v3.21 coming this April, "Other OS" feature removed

    From QJ
    Sony has announced that next firmware update for the PS3 will be released on April 1, 2010 and will disable the “Install Other OS” feature due to security concerns. According to Patrick Seybold, Sr. Director, Corporate Communications & Social Media, this move was done to ensure the PS3 community will continue enjoy the broad range of contents on a more secure system:



    This feature enabled users to install an operating system, but due to security concerns, Sony Computer Entertainment will remove the functionality through the 3.21 system software update.

    In addition, disabling the “Other OS” feature will help ensure that PS3 owners will continue to have access to the broad range of gaming and entertainment content from SCE and its content partners on a more secure system.

    Consumers and organizations that currently use the “Other OS” feature can choose not to upgrade their PS3 systems, although the following features will no longer be available;

    * Ability to sign in to PlayStation Network and use network features that require signing in to PlayStation Network, such as online features of PS3 games and chat
    * Playback of PS3 software titles or Blu-ray Disc videos that require PS3 system software version 3.21 or later
    * Playback of copyright-protected videos that are stored on a media server (when DTCP-IP is enabled under Settings)
    * Use of new features and improvements that are available on PS3 system software 3.21 or later



    Sony also reminded those PS3 owners who are currently using the “Other OS” feature but schoose to install the system software update, you will need to back-up your data stored within the hard drive partition used by the “Other OS,” to avoid data loss as you will not be able to access that data following the system update.
    ok so they say no, then do it. this really had better be a joke, or they are in for some deep shit.

    something i had said on Qj
    what the fuck are they thinking? removing they only good thing about the PS3? whats next, removing ps1 disk playback, make it only to be played from psn downloaded?

    please tell me they picked of somkeing on the job?

    I still don't see it either. Anyways, they won't disable OtherOS. There are no security risks. They even disabled GPU usage in OtherOS, forcing all rendering to be done through software.

    If they do disable it, it would be so that people would stop buying Phats and more people bought Slims, but that's highly unlikely and is a dick move. People would revolt, I'm telling you. Anyways, unless they're developing a custom firmware for the Army when they buy those PS3s for their super-computer, they're not removing OtherOS.

    I was about to totally curse you the fuck out over that. Not because of the picture, but because downloading PDFs automatically is a security concern for me.

    iPenguin was temp banned for innapropriate links in the chatbox, the other dude is banned because he is using a bugmenot.com account.

    Ahh come on look at those "features". The first one is basically saying you can't sign in and use any PSN features, second one is saying you can't play games that need firmware higher than 3.21, the last saying anything after 3.21. That's just silly, because nothing higher than 3.21 would exist.

    Obvious April fools.

    Surprising, but really, how many people used that function? Can't be many.
