DO NOT UPDATE YOUR PS3! (Update: Patch Pulled from Live Servers)

Posted by Mike Paden Wednesday, June 19, 2013
If you've turned on your Playstation 3 since Tuesday you may have noticed a prompt with an update for the software to version 4.45. If you haven't yet, don't do it! In the short time since the update was released almost 40 pages of complaints have been posted on the Playstation community boards. The most common problem seems to be a complete lockout of the system, leaving players frustrated and unable to even finish booting.

"If this doesn't get fixed and my system is shot I'm getting an Xbox." - Angry Playstation owner.

While it is not guaranteed that you will suffer these consequences for updating your PS3, since not everyone seems to have the problem, it may be best to hold off on doing so until Sony releases a statement that this has been resolved. This could not come at a worse time for Sony, who's been riding a wave of popularity since their presentation at E3.

Update: Sony has since pulled the update from being live on servers. They are currently investigating the cause of the malfunctioning software. A Sony rep stated that the company is in the process of confirming the number of users affected. To those who currently have bricked systems, Sony issued the statement "We kindly ask PS3 users to wait for further details. We will announce when ready."
