Sony updates PS3 firmware to 3.56 to stop jailbreaking

Picture of the Playstation 3 console

Today Sony has released a firmware update for the PS3 console that will update it to version 3.56. This comes on the same day news broke on the restraining order against George Hotz (Geohot). Sony did not state that it would stop jailbreaking the console but we can only assume that it does. With this restraining order against Geohot we see the Streisand Effect taking hold again as they key spreads all over the net. This decision by the courts may also prompt more hackers to focus their time on the PS3 from other projects.

Be aware if you update your system and you like to jailbreak or hack you will probably be unable to after the update.

Update: Already Hacked
