As a follow-up to my previous post on Sony removing Other OS; I am sad to say the custom DNS server trick no longer works. Apparently this has been the case since the 2nd week of April (shows how much I use the Playstation Network service) when the firmware check was moved server side rendering all current methods of spoofing obsolete. I discovered this fact early today when I went to logon to the PSN to purchase the Prince of Persia Epilogue DLC which is currently on sale. Now, I can just update and buy the content as well as be able to play online (rarely do) and be able to sync my trophies again; but then, I would be giving up on my principles for $5.
Unfortunately for my principles, I have the uneasy feeling that when I get home tonight, that's all that they will be worth. I guess on the bright side, yay for half-priced DLC and a little more life out of that game.
