FW 2.60 Blocks BD-Java

"No more two-player pong on your XMB for you" says Sony, possibly. In a funny voice.

It’s true, we’ve not really been keeping up with the cute little Java homebrew scene since our first post on the subject back in July, but it seems that Firmware 2.60 has blocked this easy route into simple XMB-based games.  Previously you could trick the PS3 into thinking a USB pen drive was a Blu-ray and get it to run some simple, safe Java games directly, but this is no longer the case.  

Perhaps there was a way to do more damage with the BD-Java and Sony have just done the safe thing, but there you go.  Will anyone miss it?
