I don't know if that's news any more than the sun rising in the morning or Paris Hilton snorting coke. Regardless, there you go. The gist of it is basically that among borking various other things, Sony's new 3.50 firmware update disables most unlicensed USB controllers.
Of course this is in response to the USB mod chips, but leave it to Sony to fuck over their customers in an attempt to cover their own asses. I want to feel sorry for you Sony, but you make it so damn hard sometimes.
