great post.thanks

Shame the 2 games reduced on US store I quite liked the look of are not on the EU store (reduced)

I fear though I will not be able to use either of my ps3's now though if the UPDATE 3.21 is not a hoax, as I don't wont to lose the Other Os feature it's the sole reason I bought the ps3's.

Update is not a hoax, its been implemented because of the guy that has been hacking the PS3 has got too close for comfort..
#10
NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I had to get ylod yesterday didn't i :(
#11
Damn, only just got Outrun and Turtles :( always the soddin way with these things.
#12
Thanks for the list. Was going to check on these later on anyway, but now it gives me a chance to pick my purchases in advance.

I think I'll be picking up Turtles in Time from that list. Love the original and the demo was decent enough of the remake.
#13
Execellent fp, been after turtles reshelled, bring back some fond memories of me and my brother rinsing the snes!

[COLOR="Red"]HOT[/COLOR]!
#14
Finally - I can get some games for my PSPGO without feeling that Sony have personally violated me by making me pay £30 a game... FIFA10 here I come!
#15
Is Turtles in Time any good?

Is Turtles in Time any good?


As a massive fan of both the original arcade games....no, it's pretty weak. It has a very rushed, cheap feel to it.
#17
i think inferno pool is a quality game well worth it for £2.39 i paid £6.29 and still thought that was a good deal
#18
Yeah , great "update" - removes support for otherOS which people paid for in good faith.
If they can't secure their own system, it's hardly fair to penalise consumers.

Geohot has now siad he will redouble his efforts to crack the console due to the underhand steps Sony has taken.

Not voting either way as the games on offer are a bit mehh

played the demo, thought the original was far better
#20
For just over £2, I'll definitely be buying Inferno Pool... am tempted by Outrun, Gunstar Heroes and TMNT too :)

I'll see how much money I have in my account :)

Cheers fp :)
#21
If you don't fancy losing OtherOS then google search 'ps3 proxy' (you will need to be a fairly intermediate desktop user to use this).

You will need to install .NET 1.1 as well, it won't work on 3.5 etc but can be installed alongside them and works on Windows 7. The trickiest part can be correctly editing the config and updatelist files but I'm happy to paste examples here if needed.

If Sony think they are removing my linux partition then they can think again.
#22
Gunstar heroes?! Do my eyes decieve me?!
£2.39!?
HOT!

Is there a demo of Outrun, I'd like to try it before I buy it so to speak.

Exactly what I was thinking! Fantastic game, I loved every minute of it when I had it on the Wii Virtual Console, and I shall definitely be picking this up!

Never played the original, unfortunately :(

Will everyone give up whining over this update!! if you want to run linux get a pc or netbook! Sad ****s!!

I think it's more to do with Sony releasing an update which basically just removes a feature in order to aid their own security without actually offering the end user anything in return.

Sony's stance with the PS3 has always been that it's an almost entirely open platform which is in stark contrast with the 360 and then at the first sign of trouble they bolt the gates and start punishing the users for their own mistakes. The recent calendar bug did them a lot of PR damage and stuff like this is not going to help to fix that.
#27
Is chains of Olympus worth picking up? Do I need a PSP to play.

Yes and Yes.
suspended#29
most (if not all!) people who are bothered about the update removing this feature are probably already using it for playing illegal roms through emulators on their modded PS3's anyway! I have no issues about this being removed and fully understand why a business would do this to protect their own interests!

It was fun while it lasted but is over! Accept it and move on!!

I personally have not used linux on my ps3 and im curios as to what I can do with it? I have an original 60gb and a newer slim, wondering if its worth just not updating the 60gb?

what are the benefits of linux?

You can run emulators, some linux older games (like Quake 3, Soldier of Fortune, Unreal Tournament) and linux based media player software on there.

You can also use it for general things like open office and to backup Bluray disc content if you so desire.

Quality rep given, typical it took sony wanting to take it away for me to actually get interested in what it does! just updated my 250gb, ill hold out on the 60gb will i still be able to download linux on the or have sony blocked the internet browser too? can i just download on my pc and transfer to ps3?
#33
If you use the method I gave on the previous page then you should be able to get away with not updating it and still using it on PSN.

You'll need to download an ISO and burn it to DVD to install linux. There may be a way to install it from usb storage too but I'm not sure about that. Technically I suppose if that's possible then you could download it straight to removeable storage from the PS3 browser but you will need to connect to PSN to use the internet on the PS3.

I picked this up on PSN on offer today not mentioned.

1942: Joint Strike

Id recommend Outrun to anybody. Recently did some * ahem* with my psp so wont be bothering with them games. If the PS3 was easy to * get * games for as the PSP then they'd be in serious trouble just as the PS3 is begining to gain momentum against the other formats.
#35
A Director's cut-type version of The Heavy Rain Taxidermist content is also available on the UK store for £3.29 now by the way. It was a bit of an impulse buy for me as I've wanted it since I finished the game, it's a bank holiday weekend and my 360 has just gone back to MS for 3RL repair today. Plus I almost never buy DLC really (a few times a year at most) so I just treated myself. :)

You need the UK version of the game to make it work though because I think it's parental locked by the BBFC.
#36
Also I can confirm that the system version control bypass method I mentioned on the previous page definitely does work as I am now logged into PSN on a console running v3.15 :)

European PlayStation Store Special Offers until 1 April 2010

You just managed to buy it before it returned to a higher price today! :)


Yes, I cannot imagine the dicussions if Sony were to make adjustments to the PS3 to stop piracy. Sheesh!

For those who love trophies Gunstar Heroes is ridiculously easy to get them all.
Short game but loads of fun especially with a second player be it online/offline.

At this sale price I'm contemplating whether to buy the game myself but I played it so much on the mega drive as a kid that it seems pointless - but at this price...

Heat added.

Update:
Ended up buying it... :thumbsup:

Security patches and feature removal are two very different things.

Even the BBC and Gamespot have been discussing this decision, it's a pretty ruthless one by Sony in all honesty and is really just because they can't be arsed to sort out the security on the OtherOS feature since they don't market it anymore.

I still have both PSN and OtherOS for now anyway and I'll be keeping them for as long as possible out of principle.

The BBC is not necessarily known for informed reporting on technology issues. For example, the "Watchdog" TV programme where the report of the PS3's "Yellow Light of Death" was sensationalised for the sake of viewing figures.

If you are using a third party Domain Name Server to maintain a connection to the PlayStation Network with an earlier firmware release do you know where this server is hosted or, indeed, who owns it?

I would suggest sending any private details (PlayStation Network Id &/or associated e-mail address, connected password, & any payment details for PlayStation Store Wallet funds) through an unknown IP address should be avoided in case you then find that the details are being recorded & passed to parties who may make further use of them.
