There must have been a serious glitch in the update to make them take it down.

I've had no problems myself, But I'm glad they are taking action if there really are potential ugly bugs...

Pornlord3671d ago

This sucks though. I understand, dont wanna brick any systems, and hopefully they will have this resolved. I've been waiting a year, I can wait a couple more days.

legendkilla3671d ago

no problems here i updated last night... works great...

meepmoopmeep3671d ago (Edited 3671d ago )

my approval didnt' go through. oh well.

looks like Sony is looking into the issues some people have had.
hope it comes back up soon for those that still haven't got 2.40

Mr_Showtime13671d ago

dude, you think I apporved because I have some sort of hate for the PS3? I simply apporoved because a friend of mine is unable to update this evening so I spotted this, and if others are having the problem then they deserve to know.

Dannagar3671d ago

I haven't had any problems.

prunchess3671d ago

Update seems to be working perfectly on my PAL 60gig model.

Strange this... I have had one game stall since march 2007 when I got my PS3. GTA4 always worked perfectly. I've only had problems with two games COD4 and Haze and these seemed to vanish over time.

Anyone out there with a PAL 60gig model that has had any firmware update problems?

power of Green 3671d ago

I approved it because you guys were going to trying and hide it/block it. lol.

I always approve PS3 news when the fans try to sensor the news.

That team you listed is weak compared to the team of hundreds Our *supposed team* encounters.

See... You won't find me appoving PS3 news unless it is trying to be blocked I'm a big believer of natural news flow and not forced or sensored news lol.

Bonsai12143671d ago

i haven't had any problems, but i won't use the features alloted in this update now.. hopefully it won't screw my ps3. i <3 it

shelbygt333671d ago

Im happy that most people didn't experience what I did, but even Sony has so much as admitted that something quirky is going on.

UPDATE: 7/2/2008, the PLAYSTATION 3 system software version 2.40 has been temporarily taken offline and will not be available for download as our engineers examine any possible issues with this update. The Knowledge Center will be updated with information as it becomes available; please check back here for further details.

Bucky Sligo3670d ago

Name calling is childish. POG has a point about PS3 fans trying to block this news. How about debating with POG instead of calling him a name?

Montrealien3670d ago

@Violater

lol, facts are facts bud and even Sony is recognizing what so many have been denying. You did`nt approve it because it would seem you don`t want people to know this? That would make you part of the (other) task force.

Myself, I had zero problems with this update and damn happy I got it. Now lets just hope this all gets sorted out so that other people can take advantage of this great update.

yea i have it and there are major problems

CrashSharc3671d ago

Hey can you name some? Note: I'm not challenging your statement, I'm just curious.

Bleucrunch3670d ago

Yes I downloaded it at midnight on the dot and since is it has given me no trouble. But yes I would like to know what issues you have.

ChampIDC3670d ago

Seems like it's rare to have problems, but it's not rare enough to call it a fluke I guess. Hope it's not too bad. PS3 has had such a good track record so far. Would suck if a bunch started failing. Xbox fanboys will have ammunition to be stupid with >.<

Bubble Buddy3670d ago

Guys, for some reason I can't download the Warhawk patch. Never touched the game in ages but now trophies are out so...But I don't know if the patch not working has anything to do with the In-game XMB or not.

athlon7703670d ago

I guess I lucked out big time then. I was at work and called home to my wife that has only touched the PS3 enough to put in a Blu-Ray movie. She did great, followed my instructions over the phone and downloaded the firmware, the installed it, I even walked her through getting the update for Super Stardust! When I got home last night, she had the TV turned on and waiting for me. I was playing SSHD and noticed a friend sign in, pressed the 'PS' button, went over to the Friends list and sent him a message, then went on to unlock 2 more trophies, we went back and forth for almost a 1/2 hr before he signed off. Everything is working perfectly for me. Even pressed the 'PS' button and went to the Play Station Store, it said I needed to exit the game for this to happen, I selected yes, and bam I was in the new store looking at the new views (anyone see how to set the default view, I like the list better).

Anyway, 2.40 working great for me, original 60g PS3 with a upgraded 200g drive in the USA.

ps, anyone know if that "fix" abount PS3's not booting up where you remove you hard drive, delete the partition, then stick it back into the PS3, let it re-format it as a new drive actually works?

ER1X3671d ago

I have it and have had zero issues. I just want something "OFFICIAL" from Sony about the matter. I know they took it down because my g/f can not update hers.

Nick2120043671d ago

go play call of duty 4 online and see how much it lags. its ridiculus

clintos593671d ago

I been having no problems what so ever with the update and I am fine on MGO. No lag at all. Maybe that just has to do with COD4.

LONEWOLF2313671d ago

Ive been playing COD4 with no problems whatsoever. Ive sent and received messages while playing.

ER1X3671d ago

3.1

I haven't played COD4 in months, lag was one of the reasons I stopped back then.

Organic_Chemistry3670d ago

Hey Nick, I dont know if you tried it again, but now CoD4 wont even log into the game list or find games, for me it just freezes my ps3! Maybe this is some form of revenge for the MGSO's ability to take CoD4's online players.

Bladestar3671d ago (Edited 3671d ago )

lol... so much for PSN is now better than xbox live.. this is proof of it... Sony was trying to catch up to xbox live so bad that they rushed this firmware with huge amount of issues...

This article will not be approved... Sony leg humpers rather have a broken PS3 then to admit 2.4 firmware is crap...

Telmarine3671d ago

Kid, you need to realize that you're fighting a losing war.
Are you too blind to realize that PS3 is outselling the 360 everywhere every month?

Nick2120043671d ago

it will be fixed within like a day or two and ps3 is definately the better system and will win the console war

pwnsause3671d ago

bladestar you fail at flaming

Pornlord3671d ago

Just add him to your ignore list, I can't even see what he typed, but let me guess...

haha, See, sony can't handle the update, the idiots rushed it. PSN will never be as good as XBL... Does that sound about right?? Seriously, just click ignore, you already know what he's gonna say anyway.

Solid_Snake6663671d ago

talk about stupidity the xbox rrod hahah Sony has no catch up to do M$ is playing catch up with all the sales omg the 60 gig hard drive will save xbox ...so will viva pinata ahahahah thats for the Wii u guys got nothing else

juuken3671d ago

Wow Bladestar...you were just WAITING for 2.4 to have a couple of problems weren't you?

You sir are made of massive fail!

Bladestar3671d ago (Edited 3671d ago )

@juuken - I was not waiting... I knew it was going to have issues... duhh... The fact that Sony is trying so hard to catchup to xbox live specially with E3 around the corner when microsoft is probably going to announce the new gesture/motion interface and a couple of new enhancement it was only obvious... I am amazed that the thing even works for some consoles... Sony main issue is not that they are not good at what they do is that they have too many firmware updates... that increases the possibility of having issues... like this one... they should limit their updates to 1-2 a year... that way they can spend more time testing the damn thing... and even postpone if is not ready ala xbox live...

I will not deny this brings me joy... not joy for the true gamers that own a PS3... but for the sony leg humpers in this site that wouldn't stop about PSN superiority and how everything works perfect... better than xbox live what? LOL!

The fact that Sony is trying to add many of these features to the PS3 on the last minute.. features that probably weren't spec to work on the hardware when sony made it... I can't wait until they private chat (like xbox live) ... ohh wait.. they probably never will.. instead they will probably as developers to implement it in the game.. as they are doing with ingame music.. that way developers have to use system resources from the game into these features...

juuken3671d ago

Oh yes you were Bladestar. You live, breath, eat and sleep in anti-Sony news. There are a LOT of people on the PS3 thread who didn't have this issue. There are only a few people who had this issue. I love how just hours after this update goes live, a bunch of anti-2.4 articles come through.

Seriously, it's a buttload of sh*t.

Bladestar3671d ago

@juuken - a few? that shows your lack of intelligence... do you think they would pull the updates if only a "few" people had this problem? You make it sound as if 5 people out the millings had problems... and yeah... Sony remove the updates from their servers for those 5 people... yeah.. sure bob.. it shows how much you know... Updates are only remove from distribution servers only when they are "show stopper"... MRs not CRs... In case you know the process of software roll out.

juuken3671d ago (Edited 3671d ago )

Bladestar, your ignorance astounds me. UNLESS this came from Sony themselves...on THEIR site and not this joke of a site, I'm not believing it. The problem would have to be a freakin' epidemic for them to pull it off of the PS3. The problem would have to be so widespread that almost everyone had problems with it.

JACKASS.

Nowhere as Bad a XBOX Spring update that Killed Thousands of Xbox's.....

BlowAclown Xbox Fud patrol.

AngryTypingGuy3670d ago

Sh!t happens. Everyone knows I'm a 360 fan, but I'm not here to gloat or make fun of the PS3 because I really don't care, and I know they'll fix the issues in a short amount of time. I'm rooting for the success of PSN, because I want Xbox Live to be free one day.

The main reason I'm posting is because I just want to point out that every time something goes wrong with the 360, PS3 fanboys act like nothing has ever gone wrong with the PS3, when we all know that's not true for any console in history.

Homicide3670d ago

Bladestar is a microsoft leg humper. That's why. He probably doesn't remember that Xbox live crashed for 2 weeks or so during the holiday season, and people still had to pay. Don't forget 33% failure rate. And all of that, is true.

I'm not having any problems...The xmb lags a tad, but it doesn't bother me any.

However, I'm happy to see that Sony is on the ball. They are listening to our problems and solving them.

I was also curious why the 2.4 update wasn't on the offical PSblog....apparently this is why.

Thank you Sony
