What could be these "security issues"? scratch

This could be really irritating for guys who have OS installed on their systems. Anyone here done that?

Apparently its because Sony is worried that the system can be hacked using an OS to play pirated discs. I read somewhere that a guy had successfully hacked the PS3 using this method. Maybe that's the reason.

Isn't funny though, as time goes by more and more features are taken away from PS3 rather than new features being added. Now with the latest PS3 - No backwards compatability, No more using a mouse and a keyboard, No OS, just two usb slots. Shocked

They're taking steps to make sure the function isn't abused for stuff it shouldn't be. Thats wht people get when others use stuff the way its not meant to be used.

But that being said, of all of the PS3 owners I've known or talked to, none of them have ever installed or kept linux on their PS3 for very long.

I wouldnt say this is a huge loss. Definitely not up there like Backwards Compatibility. But then, different things are more important to different people.

Yeah I read about that hehe. I think thats kind of fair though. Good on the store to step up. Usually they refer you to the manufacturer who passes you back to the store etc.

Quote :
Hi everyone, in our continued effort to provide the best, most comprehensive entertainment experience possible, we’ll be adding a few new features to PlayStation 3 (PS3) via the latest system software update, which is a mandatory update and will be available shortly. Most notably, you’ll see some new sorting options within Trophies that make it easier to claim bragging rights among your friends on PlayStation Network.

Trophy enhancements –- Now you can more easily sort trophies in the [Trophy Collection] and [Comparing Trophy] sections. Sorting can be done with [Trophy Collection] in the [Game Category] and also when comparing trophies with your friends in the [Friend Category]
Trophy Folder (Title List) can be sorted by game name/ by title according to the date in which you earned your last trophy (ascending/descending)
Add-on list (Group list) can be sorted by original/the date in which you earned your last trophy (ascending/descending)
Trophy list can be sorted by original/trophy name/grade/date of obtaining the trophy (ascending/descending)
In addition, this update preps the PS3 system for some upcoming new features, including 3D stereoscopic gaming, which is coming soon to PS3, in time for the launch of Sony’s 3D BRAVIA TVs.

Let us know your thoughts and as always, we look forward to your feedback.

Okay everyone.

I have taken all the System Update threads (4 in total) and merged them all together in this one thread.
I'm going to sticky it for further and all discussions on system updates.

Please do not create any more topics when a new update arrives.
Instead, you can post about it here.

If Dj doesnt keep the OP updated, I will edit in current versions when someone posts them.

Thanks
