What the Hecks this software Update crap

PS3 NandNAND Chip in a PS3 console

The PS3 game console has an operating system, like a home computer that needs to be updated regularly. The System update is stored inside the PS3 NAND Chip

This update ensures new game's run smoothly, and also allowing Sony control to allow only their products to run on your console. Its like Sony remotely controlling your legally owned console telling you what you can do with it, (Total bull shit we believe, you own your PS3 you should be allowed to do what you want with it ), but the Australian courts have ruled otherwise Banning the Jailbreak, Anyway these system update are done either via USB stick, a new game that's inserted into the console, or via the INTERNET when you connect to the PSN network. Fancy buying a new game spending $85, and then you cannot play the Game unless you system update .
Thats Big Brother for you.


Game update

Sony really "have you by the balls" often if you don't update your software you are not able to access the PSN network and play the latest games
