    Wrong timing, Sony.

    You make a brick update AFTER modchips and custom firmwares are widely spread for the PS3.
    Now they'll have to A/S every single one at their cost lol

    I updated this morning and it's working flawlessly. no problems at all [​IMG]

    probably people who have downloaded things from other regions psn store, corrupting their firmware.

    atleast we don't have to worry about getting 3rlod.

    *sigh*
    360 Fanboys find anything they can to try and make their purchase better. I updated just fine and my PS3 is working flawless, in the end that's all I care about.

    I see no fun in people having their PS3s bricked.

    I'm wondering if it's confirmed to brick some PS3's. From all the news posts I've read people have said the update worked fine. It could just be some users with false reports and Sony getting a little scared. I also don't see how it's funny that people are getting their systems bricked from official updates, and I don't even have a PS3.
