Playstation 3 not updating games
Apparently because some people might possibly use it in a way that Sony didn't intend. Army did just that, buying more than 2,000 PS3s to build a supercomputer.The EFF has the whole backstory: The backstory is that Sony provided the Other OS feature in order to support IBM's Cell Project, which produced the PS3's CPU and made it practical to use PS3 consoles as compute nodes for a scientific supercomputer. Lots of hobbyists also made use of the Other OS feature, using it to write their own games and creatively repurpose their PS3s.Much like the recent PS Vita update, this one isn’t going to blow your socks off or anything.“This system software update improves system performance,” according to the official Play Station website.Seeing as how many gamers have moved on to the current generation and the PS4 has already outsold the PS3 by around 10 million units, it’s not surprising that this latest update doesn’t include anything substantial.Sony will probably still support PS3 for a few years to come, but it’s safe to say the system is basically dead. If a recent patent is any indication, we may not even need to dust off our PS3s, since PS5 might be backwards compatible for all home console Play Station games.Well, Sony has not forgotten about the last-gen system and has recently released an update in the form of version 4.84. You can check to see if you’re running on the latest version by going to the Settings, then System Settings, and System Information.
Sony responded with the "upgrade" that removes the Other OS feature.It used to be when you bought a product, you owned it. And once you owned it, you could do what you want with it?
