Posted by Eric Lempel // VP, Network Operations Americas

A new PS3 system software update, v3.56, will be released soon. This is a minor update that adds a security patch.

The new Firmware 3.56 also kills homebrew and ban everyone using Jailbreck or cheat in PSN. Below you'll find a list of official changes Sony have announced:

  • The PS3™ system can now play 3D content on Blu-ray 3D™ discs.
  • An HD 3D display, active 3D glasses, and a high-speed HDMI cable (each sold separately) are required for 3D features. Visit for details.
  • Limitations on Blu-ray 3D™ disc playback
  • The 3D display of some elements such as menus and subtitles may be different on the PS3™ system than on other 3D playback devices.
  • Depending on the content, some BD-J (Blu-ray Disc™ Java*) features such as BONUSVIEW™ and BD-Live™ may not play in 3D or may not function properly on the PS3™ system.
  • When Dolby TrueHD is selected as the audio format, audio will be output in Dolby Digital during playback of Blu-ray 3D™ content.
  • When DTS-HD is selected as the audio format, audio will be output in DTS during playback of Blu-ray 3D™ content.
  • *Blu-ray Disc Java provides enhanced bonus content, including network access, picture-in-picture (PIP) functionality and expanded local storage.

Very nice SONY!!!

I wonder what it does, I don't think it will work against current hacking method or maybe this have something to do with hackers that goes online on PSN. Anyway, good luck with that, Sony!

And a New Round Starts!


Hopefully Sony will win. PLEASE.

DL'ing it right now. I hope Sony gets it right. Cause I want them to start adding features instead of patching holes.

The worst part about hackers is that they are forcing Sony to waste time with these type of updates.


I need more Sony, I need more.

i wonder if hacked consoles will be affected lol

PLAYSTATION®3 is the future.....NOW.......B_E_L_I_E_V_E

Maybe the hacked consoles will explode =O

Well these patches have done a great job stopping hackers before.
