Sony has confirmed to Next-Gen that some PS3 gamers have encountered issues with the recent 2.40 firmware update.
Maybe you should talk to Kotaku about that. ;)
I just went to down load it and it's been temporarily taken of line. (4:30pm EST)
but I have had no problems with 2.4.
I can't even download it... I want it too :(
@2.1 try downloading it from there site or look for an alternite source with 2.4 use some type of portable storage device that what i did and it downloaded fine
@RememberThe357 You can't download it because Sony pulled it back due. Most likely due to the "freeze" issues after updating (I got it but fixed it by reformatting my HDD).
atleast they are responding fairly quickly to identify the issue and resolve it.. whatever it may be
What a suprise, the FW came out today, there are a few problems to be expected, and Sony is on the issue SAME DAY. /sarcasm Sure, 2.41 is coming, this is just an infostructure for future updates to grab onto. Problems will be handled swiftly as always. Way to go Sony.
hmm...what if they actually release a firmware version without the crashing etc...? firmware updates are not just software updates they are hardware as well, bad firmwares are pretty serious...
Nothing to see here. Firmware was released had some issues which only effects a small percentage. Sony responds rather quickly new firmware up in running in few days. Rinse repeat for the next go around. No problem sh!t happens.
problem about 4 or 5 updates ago where it would freeze at the end of the update forcing me to turn off from switch at back but after doing that it worked flawlessly and then in another update it was fixed. just give it time b4 you use the switch at back.
I had to do the same thing with a few firmware updates. It would freeze at the end of the download process. After I cut off my PS3 and cut it back on it was fine. Since then, however, I just download from my PC onto a USB and do it that way. Never had any problems after that. If you need to know how to download it onto a USB drive, read this: http://www.us.playstation.c...
those People. I'm glad my 2.40 update was butter. I like how quick Sony got on this and did'nt try to sweep it under the rug. Pretty good business ethics!!
BULLCRAP! EDIT- that was meant for the post below.
They pulled back the update, 2.36 is now the current firmware version again :( http://fus01.ps3.update.pla...
I'm sure a few people had this problem but it's not *widespread*. Give me a break.
I hear they pulled the update and you can only get 2.36 now? Is that true? I'm at work, so I don't have the update yet.
They took it down temporarily to help those who do have problems with the update.
no problems for me. updated it last night. the update took about 30 mins to download tho, i guess it was cos everyone was downloading it. ingame xmb ftw!
So it wasn't fake news planted by xbox fans.. I know we can say Sony is actually a bunch of MS fanatics and this news is fake too! That way everyone is out to get Sony.. even Sony themselves!
The problem is pretending that 2.4 is yet again, something relative to massive hardware failure, or a problem of epic proportions. Most of the source stories for that VG site were fixed later down in the same thread that they used as evidence of the problem. I think everyone who owns a PS3 knows that fresh FW updates have issues, and they are shortly resolved. I think everyone who owns a PS3 also knows that Kotaku is on sony watch 247 and loves to blow things out of proportion as well. 2.4 works fine for me. I'm sure people are having problems.
Just glad i got mine at midnight. Too bad for anyone who actually got their ps3 frozen
I downloaded it, around midnight, and after that I was lagging so bad in COD4, I was getting kicked off the network. You can get on COD4 and see others with the low network strength. And COD4 doesnt lag, like that.
NO probs here, downloaded it at 9AM UK time. was fast and fine.
with any of my systems...... especially my PS3 I had a minor issue with my 360 and dvd tray sometimes it would not open and I have to fiddle with it...
I never had any problems so far.... and i've been using my ps3 alot since the update.... although i don't have any games that support the trophy system, maybe i should get Super Stardust HD
Downloaded it last night at 9pm and no prob, played COD4 works f.i.n.e. and after that watched some movies with it and no issues...60gig the best! Not to offend y'all...
I play all my games all day , i have 14 games , i play cod4 3 hours today and dont have any problems , my ps3 is 60 gb
I got the HDD problem. I just finish buying and installing a 250GB HDD.
took me under 3mins to download and no problems :) unlucky too people who are having problems or didn`t even get it its fun insulting all the NOOBY gold cross`s on COD4 who abort as soon as they lose
