Sony PS3 Firmware v3.42: Update or stay on Jailbreak?

We have some breaking news to bring you now, as we can confirm that Sony has put up a speedy firmware update for the PS3. It is available to download now, and has been tagged as a mandatory update.

That means of course, that it isn’t optional, so unless you update to v3.42, you won’t be able to access the Playstation Network, i.e – play games online.

No word from Sony on what the update actually does, but you can guess that is has something to do with all the jailbreaking methods that are swirling around at the moment. Just hours ago, we told you about an update to PSJailbreak, which will allow support for PS2 gaming – again.

The question is though – do you update straight away for online gaming, or do you hang around until something happens in the jailbreak scene? Update, or possibly lose any chance of playing legal homebrew content on your PS3.

Let us know what you plan to do.
