VG247: SCEE has just said that it can't firm up reports that a PS3 Firmware 2.41 release is to be made this week, but fell short of issuing a denial.
...out already. I downloaded 2.40 with a problem but have yet to download the Super Stardust HD patch so I can start earning some trophies.
anyone know what caused it? You think it would have affected more of us if it were that severe. I heard something about it affecting people with less than 3 gbs of free space on their drive. I'm holding my breath because I have the original 60gb model and do not want to have to go through Sony customer service and get a 40gb sent back to me.
No denial, well we know its coming, so when it does, ill download it lol no need to hold my breath my ps3 works fine with 2.4 PSN ID: Sitris
Thats due to Sony not giving a monkeys!!!!
to your XBOX FEE FIX ME ripping a hole in the o-zone layer with its 62nd RRoD Seriously, you guys must get a hard on for anti-Sony news. Stop swallowing the Microflacids penis than Rob Greenburgh keeps tapping you with. Oh, well, go on then. Just kiss it a kiss and wink at yourself in the mirror you feckin worthless cum-guzzling XBOT. You probably have sex with your own sister you sick freak. PS3 FTW
SCEE can't confirm something that SCEA is in charge of. We'll have a press release sometime today.
I mean everytime there is a firmware there is a "rumour" of some random pplz ps3 breaking. I mean I would believe it if I knew som1 who broke or mine broke or even there was a control breakage like the 20gigs or 60gigs. I think this is all fabrication by 360 fanboys hating. If you go on youtube and look up broken ps3 or bricked ps3s or anything with dead ps3 you can barely find 1 video with an ACTUAL broken ps3. You look up 3rod you got like a million different people off jump showing their 360s fuked up. Here proof of how I think this is pure fabrication:
If it was merely a hoax why would Sony remove the update and even the SSHD patch?
You don't need to look for a hidden agenda, personally I dont know anyone experiencing problems but I can hardly say that the problems dont exist, there are alot of PS3's out there. Facts are facts, Sony had problems, removed the update, will work it out and re-release it.
because they THOUGHT something was wrong and when did they remove it because my friend just updated his and his worked fine ROFL WATCH THIS IS HILARIOUS http://youtube.com/watch?v=...
Okay let’s go with your scenario... Let’s say Sony pulled the update just because some 360 fans spread a rumor on the internet that some peoples PS3 were bricking... Under this scenario MS is the devil and Sony is the innocent retard. Do you really think the corporation you worship is that native? Is that the best conspiracy theory you can dream up? Has to be some reason other than Sony rushing out a firmware update to provide features that are 18 months late... Yeah couldn't be that...
A huge corporation doesn't pull an update unless they find proof of a problem THEMSELVES. If Sony was that vulnerable to misinformation they would have gone out of business 50 years ago. Grow up.
I have found a problem with 2.40 and super star dust HD ever since i download the firm ware and the new patch every time i use the in game XMB to read a message or to send a message my PS3 will frezze or it will frezze when i bring up the up the XMB and i have a Lunch Japanese 60 GB PS3 so there is a problem with 2.40 and also my Mate Jonny-Slacer on the PSN has won trophies and there not even showing on his Profile. so i hope Sony fixs this problem asap. I love the 2.40 Firmware but i think they rushed and that it wasn't ready to come out when it did.
But my real thing I dont know about is it BRICkING ps3. PPl have claimed that their ps3s dont work after it but yet no1 I know has had this problem. I dont doubt that ppls xmb freezes when doing certain things.
Well i havent seen or heard of anybody with a problem yet (other than on the internet) but i wonder why this few are having problems. What is the differences with them, that made their sh!t mess up
sony can take their time as long as the finished product is worth it
They just need to get it released before E3 or they will be in for a lot of stick.
Luckily I downloaded both the FW 2.40 and the (I think it was 4.00 version) patch for SSHD about 14 minutes after midnight. I have had no problems at all that I have noticed. I didn't know they removed the expansion for Split-Screen co-op though which is one of the trophies. Still have to wait on them to put that one back up. Sony had to take it down to investigate the claims of Hardware/Software failures. I personally don't know anyone that has had this happen to them and I also have one of the original 60GB launch machines. I am sure Sony will have it up and running again in no time. You never know in this day and age of idiots who is telling the truth or lying about their "alledged" console bricking up.
I am still waiting.
What are you waiting for? You do know that Sony won't give you a PS3, right? You have to go out and actually buy one yourself.
It was a Holiday Weekend, I'm sure the programmers at Sony are gonna be busting a$$ this week to get it out asap. It will be ready when it is ready. Thats it! There is nothing more to say about it.
people wont scream at sony to launch firmware updates in the future and hopefully Sony learn not to buckle under the pressure and make sure they get it right.
I was one of these people that went to work on the day of the 2.4 firmware release, only to find that it was not available to me when I got home. Needless to say, I was majorly bummed. So I'm excited to hear news of the re-release supposedly coming by 'midweek'. And now Sony refuses to deny confirmation of this? Ehh I just dunno. What do you guys think is the likliness of it really coming out on wednesday?
