It's not just firmware, CELL has a hardware based protection system that is extremely unlikely to be cracked any time soon. There's also code in each pressed blu-ray that is checked.
Sony's kung fu is strong this time round, and in fairness there's not much for 360 either although you can play copied games on some systems unlike the PS3.
Wii however is shit, their idea of fixing the protection is to change the keyword on the protection system to lowercase
