Sony has closed a loophole which allowed Playstation 3 users hack the System to play Pirated games on it. This update blocks the newly released hacks PSJailbreak and PSGroove . Sony had previously won a court battle against PSJailbreak blocking the distribution of their Dongle Stick. The PSJailbreak was the first and only Hack to be made for the Playstation 3 which Hackers have been struggling to Hack due to it's security features.
The release of this update has caused shockwaves through the gaming community with some agreeing with Sony but some criticising the Update.
