    One of the key features is the ability to turn off the trophy notifications. Who requested this?! I can't see myself ever turning it off. Anyone here actually excited about this feature?

    Engine Room with Cyan, watching him learn.
    I personally don't care, but some people may be annoyed at a tacky, noisy popup in the middle of a dramatic story scene.

    Is this a joke, there is an update for something like that. Ha how would this be useful
    If you turn it on you wont get a notification and you wont be able to tell what trophy you got
    But lets just see how update is

    DO NOT UPDATE!!
    Many people have reported problems with the update such as:
    - Boots to PS3 logo and then blank sparkly screen with no response
    - Dualshock won't connect
    - Can't rebuild the file system via recovery menu
    You can try your luck but I would not recommend it.
    Here is a complaint thread

    Um some users are reporting problems with that update. Mainly the console locks up on the ribbon boot-up screen. You might want to wait if you didn't updated yet

    Edit- Ninja'd

    The no trophy notice is actually a pretty nice feature for any one that is into recording game play. I am CFW'd up though so I wont be bothering with this till(hopefully)Rogero releases an update

    From what I gathered, the PS3 super slim updates just fine and it seems 500GB drives and below have no problems after updating.
    I would still wait for Sony however.

    Not taking any chances. I'm waiting till Sony fixes that update, i don't care about PSN for the moment, as long as i can stream things from my PC.

    From what I am seeing elsewhere this is only happening to the people that switched out the HD'S.

    Same here, I would test it out myself but I recently upgraded to 500GBs and don't want to risk it...

    Do you have to update to play online, or visit the PSN store?

    My 250GB Super Slim updated just fine, thank goodness. I should remind myself to read up on firmware updates before updating.

    This reminds me when Nintendo released an updated and bricked people's Wii.
