Exactly. People are missing the points on how Sony's paving their road to more privacy invasion.

This isn't the only kick in the bawls either. Im hearing over on the PlayStation forums that this update has stopped users from upgrading/replacing their HDD's too on the Slim models. Nobody seems to know if this is a bug or intentional but im betting on the latter. I wish these hackers would go away and stop reducing the functionality of my console and making ME jump through hoops. I just wanna play my games and not worry about game keys, FW's screwing me etc. Now im bummin cause I Just last week bought a 160GB slim I can't upgrade the HDD now

The hackers have nothing to do with you. Sony put the rootkit and forced you to update to 3.56 firmware not the hackers. Sony is the party that will be implementing keys and if you really cannot upgrade your hard drive then that is also Sony`s fault not the `hackers.`

You're not forced to upgrade. Don't connect to PSN if you don't want to update the firmware, simple as. Why do you think there are still folk on 3.55...

This thread reminds me I should dust my PS3 off once in a while and check that it still works.
