Sony PS3 Firmware 3.56 Announced; Security Serial Keys Next?
Sony fights PS3 hackers anew with Firmware 3.56. Will it be enough or does Sony have something else under their corporate sleeves?
Sony has just released a new firmware update for the PlayStation 3. Firmware 3.56, as Sony’s VP for Network Operations for Sony Computer Entertainment America Eric Lempel explained on their blog, “is a minor update that adds a security patch,” something we’ve heard over and over everytime the company releases new updates.
Just fresh off from their ongoing legal battle with several PS3 hackers, looks like Sony is pretty consistent in trying to fend off anyone who’s trying to hack their system ranging from software updates to banning accounts to the PlayStation Network. But rumors from Techeye report that Sony is going to push their fight against piracy one more time as they integrate Serial Keys with each of their games.
Serial Keys are popularly known in the world of PC gaming as several gaming companies such as Blizzard use it to secure their content against hackers. Although it hasn’t exactly been as successful as they would have hoped as the industry is still under constant siege from piracy.
Stay tuned as we find out more on Firmware 3.56 and if the rumors of games having serial keys are true.View Article Source »
