Forums - Sony Discussion - PSA: Don't update your PS3 just yet (firmware)

Saw this on Kotaku, people are reporting that the firmware update ain't doin' great things to their systems:

Platinums: Red Dead Redemption, Killzone 2, LittleBigPlanet, Terminator Salvation, Uncharted 1, inFamous Second Son, Rocket League

Good thing I don't have PSN+.

Auto-update? more like auto-brick.

Wouldn't be the first time from memory.

This happens every update and usually turns out to be bsad luck on select few.

Updating now

Well all I get is a notification saying PSN is under maintenance.


So many superiority complexes on VGC.

No problem for me, updated and played Last of Us for 2 hours. If you upgraded your hard drive, you might want to wait, could be part of the problem but many with upgraded hard drives had no problems updating. Be safe...

They need to fix this dumb sh!t

How the hell are we going to be scared to update our damn consoles because they might break?


I hope this stupid ass problem doesn't become routine on PS4..

Coworkers wife just called him stating that she tried to watch Netflix but an update popped up, she updated and now the the ps3 will not work.
