    Hi, i rented a bluray last night and my ps3 kept saying i needed to update to latest firmware to be able to play it.

    Is there a way to play the movie without updating, as i have CFW 3.55?

    Thanks!

    File a complaint with the police, tell them that $ony stole all your PS3 features.

    Remember, you did not buy a PS3, you leased it! and so long as you do not agree to their TOS agreements and update, $ony will block your console from doing the things you "bought" it for:

    No support for new games
    No online support or online gaming
    No chatting with friends on PSN
    No support for the PSN games you bought
    No support for new bluray movies


    I tried to get people to realise that what $ony has done is theft, and that instead of old games, we should have demand $ony to refund or replace our consoles with an Xbox 360.

    It's funny how corporations can steal from the people and get away with it so easily by throwing a TOS agreement in your face.



    Try disabling your PS3 from making a net connection and then see if it works.

    Well then, the only options are to buy a 2nd PS3 or a separate bluray player, or upgrade to ofw and lose cfw.

    Can I ask which bluray movie it is that asks for the upgrade to be done?

    Rip the movie using a PC...or better yet, just download it next time...they shouldn't even be allowed to sell blurays that won't work on old players.

    Some people are afraid of downloading cos firstly it is illegal, and they fear that they will be caught.

    That's what I love about piracy, the secret that the industries dont want the majority of non-downloaders and politicians to know is that there are relatively few pirates, and these pirates actually spend at least 3 times as much money on original copies than an average person!

    Of course there are pirates who pirate and dont buy.

    But look at the ACS:Law fiasco, they only went after people who they alleged downloaded porn, knowing many would be embarrassed to appear in court being assumed of such a thing especially if they were innocent, which we found a few to be!
