Sony PS3 2.43 update needed to fix 2.42 firmware

It looks like we will need the Sony PS3 2.43 update much sooner than later as it's needed to fix the 2.42 firmware. We are getting numerous reports that the latest Playstation 2.42 firmware is causing problems for users.

Personally our PS3 is just fine but then we have not had much time with it since the latest firmware. This is what some gamers have reported to PR:

So many updates..... Just get it right the first time.

What's the disagree for? Other hardware companies aren't releasing updates every month..

I guess 360 has hardware issues and PS3 has OS/software issues

Breakfast3786d ago (Edited 3786d ago )

....makes sense to me.

...but im sure plenty of people, wont have a clue about what youre talking about.

Aclay3786d ago

The PS3 has no Software issues ElementX so stop convincing yourself that it does, it's not like it's a widespread problem and I've never had any issues with my PS3 after an update.

ElementX3786d ago (Edited 3786d ago )

Give it up. I never had RROD problems but it doesn't mean that it didn't exist. Sony keeps on adding features and fixing things that should've been included when the system launched. Thing about adding "features" after launch is you better be damn sure it's compatible with all the hardware and user configurable options.

agentace3786d ago

the thing is RROD effects about 1/3 of 360s and the firmware updates effect about less than 1% of PS3s & and the bad firmware updates dont completely destroy your console like RROD so its no a big deal like u say

ElementX3786d ago (Edited 3786d ago )

I fully admit the 360 is a POS, however I still love the games. MS screwed up big time with RROD, a loading tray, loud-ass fans, no HDMI, and proprietary HDDs.

PS3 is a good machine, I've owned one. I'm not going to keep repeating myself. I think that a lot of features being added to PS3 should've been there from the start. Sure the PS3 updates don't cause as many problems, however they aren't perfect, either.

I love the games for 360, but I don't like the system. I enjoyed the PS3 in the time I had one, yes I'll own another. I've made myself out to be a 360 fanboy and I guess there's some truth to it. I'm not going to make any excuses for MS in regards to the problems they've had with 360.

Yes the dashboard update has bricked some 360s, and I believe the problems with PS3s aren't as widespread, but they're out there. Not everyone goes into a forum to tell that their PS3 crapped out. The 360 has been plagued with problems so I think people pay more attention to it.

@1.7
Yes updates are good, however they should do more thorough testing instead of releasing patches to fix features that should've been there since launch. On the same note, MS should've tested the 360 hardware more before launching the system.

One thing I am curious about is how long the lifetime for Bluray drives will be. They've been out just under two years and I'm wondering how the diodes will hold up over time. I'm sure they're ok, though.

*NOTE*
I dunno why I got so many disagrees with my 1.3 comment. I didn't say anything derogatory or mean. I just stated that patches/updates need thorough testing because of all the options the PS3 system has. You have to make sure everything works.

robep33786d ago

The 360 had problems with a dashboard upated which bricked a lot of 360's so 360 has had Hardware & o/s problems mate.
15m Playstation 3 and a handful of problems,when a problem happens Sony are quick to fix unlike some other manufacturers firmware updates are good because they add features and improve how the PS3 works if you have one and your not happy you can get rid of it can't you.

Rob.

cwir3786d ago

What do you mean so many updates?
Whenever I see that there's an update I'm happy. Cuz they either added some new stuff or fixed some bugs (that I probably wasn't aware of anyway). And it's not that often that it would be some kind of inconvenience to downolad and install. So don't moan over nothing.. Patches and uptades are a GOOD thing. "Get it right the first time".. Ok so they didn't. You can NEVER be sure you did everything right, especially if it's with something that has stuff and features added all the time. At least it's fixable without having to send away your console..

Don't compare PS3's minor "software problems" with 360's major hardware problems.. please :)

ElementX3786d ago (Edited 3786d ago )

If you all want to disagree with me because you don't like me, fine. That seems to be the case at N4G. You don't like someone so you have to disagree with everything they say. Even in my respectful posts I'm getting a lot of disagrees so I think you have something against me.

360 sucks

there, now like me again, please :(

@1.9
Not always. I've said positive things about PS3 and negative things about 360 in various posts since I've been here and yes, I am a recovering MS fanboy but all of my posts aren't against the PS3.

In my comment above I blatantly called the 360 a POS. I said what bugged me about the system, I said that both Sony and MS need to test their updates more thoroughly, I didn't say anything hateful about the PS3 but I still got a number of disagrees.

*EDIT*
No this site isn't run by PS3 fanboys. People are just too overprotective of their system of choice and I think the users on N4G seem to be a little biased towards people and systems.

If you want a conspiracy, research 9/11 and the government cover-up ;)

HighDefinition3786d ago (Edited 3786d ago )

"If you all want to disagree with me because you don't like me, fine. That seems to be the case at N4G"

People disagree w/ you cause you say stupid sh!t.

Edit: Nobody always say stupid sh!t, even POG has his moments where you/I can agree. Point remains though, POG say stupid sh!t.

You do to.

Edit2: Let me guess. Because this site is ran by Sony and it`s all PS3 fanboys, right.

ChampIDC3786d ago (Edited 3786d ago )

Never point out any flaws, as minor as they may be, of the PS3 on N4G. That's just asking for disagrees. As true as the statement may be, they'll still click away on the disagree button.

And on topic, yes, all companies should put their systems through thorough testing. Either MS didn't even try to test the 360 much, or they just simply ignored the RROD until it became a widespread problem. Sony is now guilty of the same error, though theirs was much more minor. Disagree away, but it's true. These things NEED thorough testing. These are the first 2.42 problems I've heard of though, so this could be a big coincidence, with other things causing their problems.

vdesai3786d ago

There is nothing wrong with the 2.42 update if you really wanna pay attention too the morons on the PS forums go ahead because that happens on every firmware.

xSHROOMZx3786d ago

Sorry.. just have to post this, give me all tha disagrees and bad comments you want.... ok.

There are A LOT of PS3 articles on this site, whether its news or something really retarded about PS3. 360 really doesnt get that much news, unless its bashing it, Wii on tha other hand, doesnt deserve any news.

I stand for PS3 and 360, but 360 does get tha shaft on N4G.

Let tha bad comments and disagrees begin!!!

uie4rhig3786d ago

dunno mine works fine :S

juuken3786d ago

...except that the PS3 rarely has software issues.
...except the fact that the PS3 doesn't have major hardware issues.
...except the fact you're making this look even worse than it is.

I installed firmware update 2.42 with no problems at all. I don't know if people are trying to eat their PS3's or something but this is a little fishy.

ukilnme3786d ago

No problems with mine.

What up High Def?

@ xSHROOMZx
Could not agree more.

Dannagar3785d ago

I'm tired of their stupid firmware updates. Just let it rest.

Tarasque3785d ago

While i have not had any problem's with the 2.42 update. I have had problems with a few other update's to that one. But the 2.42 did not make my trophy's load any faster. But on the other hand i have never had a problem with a 360 update, so take it how you will some of us have the luck some don't.

cyclindk3785d ago

If Microsoft kept finding ways to improve their system performance, you wouldn't use the updates? Nintendo? What's wrong with improving performance at the cost of perhaps a few hiccups every now and again?

prunchess3785d ago

But I have yet to encounter a firmware problem with my PS3. I have a euro 60gig launch model.

AceLuby3785d ago

Looks like I'm the only one, but when going from ingame to XMB or vice versa (not ingame xmb however) there is a small chance that I get a line through the x=y axis and the stuff that is supposed to be on the bottom is on the top. Happens only every once in a while and only on one TV/PS3. A restart fixes it, but it is annoying.

juuken3786d ago

Zerodin, you'll eat anything up anything that sounds negative towards the PS3. People like you...I shake my head at. You are a hopeless 360 fanatic. Oh wooooow, 4 people have this problem! I GUESS THIS SPELLS DOOM N GLOOMZ FOR TEH PS3 NOW! DOOM N GLOOOMZ! OH NOOOOOOOOOOES, THE 360 HAS WON TEH CONSOLE WAAAAAARZ!

Dammit, all those xbots do now is spam sony customer service with bogus reports?

Seriously, I'm doing this comment via my ps3.

"Dammit, all those xbots do now is spam sony customer service with bogus reports"
And it took Sony 3 updates of the same FW to figure that out? That's like me saying Sony pays my ISP to screw with my Live connection, completely retarded....

karlostomy3785d ago (Edited 3785d ago )

1. release buggy 2.40
2. Fix broken consoles and rally SDF on N4g for damage control
3. re-release 2.40. call it 2.41
4. release 2.42
5. rinse, repeat steps 2-4

juuken3785d ago

1. Release a system that's been rushed to the market.
2. Try to cover up RROD issues with three year warranties instead of attacking the problem directly.
3. Force owners who want the full 360 experience to pay $50.00 a year for service that should be free but won't be because they love milking the cow.
4. Brainwash most 360 owners into thinking they have such a huge plan for their system when they actually don't.
5. Steal 3rd party exclusives because they can't even afford to create 1st party exclusives.
6. Stir the media up against the PS3 because their actions reek of pure desperation.
7. Drop prices on the 360's because their sales have slowed down and once again this shows signs of desperation.
8. Ripoff of their competitors because they lack a sense of innovation and creation.
9. On top of that, they're probably responsible for people calling in *issues* with PS3 firmware updates when everyone else barely had any problems.

Give it up karl.

karlostomy3785d ago

It is getting beyond a joke and is embarrassing for you.

Why not try to be a little more creative instead of reactive all the time?

Lord20083785d ago (Edited 3785d ago )

The SONY masterplan REVISED
1. Release a system that's OVERPRICED to the market.
2. Try to cover up CELL / 3RD PARTY issues with instead of attacking the problem directly.
3. Force owners TO ADOPT BLU RAY, A FORMAT THEY DON’T NEED
4. Brainwash most PS3 owners into thinking they have such a huge plan for their system when they actually don't.
5. LOSE 3rd party exclusives because they ARE TO ARROGANT.
6. Stir the media up against the XBOX 360 because their actions reek of pure desperation.
7. REFUSE TO Drop the price on the PS3.
8. Ripoff of their competitors because they lack a sense of innovation and creation (I.E WIIMOTE, LIVE)
9. DON’T NEED A NUMBER 9

juuken3785d ago

What's the matter karl, can't refute anything I've said? That's the best comment you can come up with? Stop copying your posts? I just came up with nine rebuttals for your comments towards the PS3.

As for you Lord...hmmm, let's see.

The SONY masterplan REVISED
1. Release a system that's OVERPRICED to the market.

(Because production costs were high. That was a mistake but the price has been lowered. Your point being? Going back to 2006/2007 aren't we?)

2. Try to cover up CELL / 3RD PARTY issues with instead of attacking the problem directly.

(In what way? CELL and 3rd party issues? What problems occurred with the CELL and 3rd party? Please discuss them, and enlighten me.)

3. Force owners TO ADOPT BLU RAY, A FORMAT THEY DON’T NEED

(Sony didn't force anyone to adopt to bluray. You fail...you fail badly. Bluray won the format war fair and square. Bluray is shaping up to be the future. The only person who can argue with that are simple-minded 360 fanatics who are running out of things to attack the PS3 on.)

4. Brainwash most PS3 owners into thinking they have such a huge plan for their system when they actually don't.

(And Microsoft actually did the same thing. They brainwashed their single console owners into thinking their console will actually last pass 2008. Do you actually think the 360 will last until 2010? 2011? 2012? I'm a PS3 owner and I'm not brainwashed. I knew what I was getting into when I bought a PS3. It will always remain my favorite console because good things are coming for it. )

5. LOSE 3rd party exclusives because they ARE TO ARROGANT.

(They did not lose 3rd party exclusives because they were arrogant. They do not have the money to outbid Microsoft. They're actually being the smart ones by spending their money on 1st party exclusives. That was the best strategy because 3rd party exclusives are starting to die out. By the time next year shows up, Sony will have plenty of first party exclusives under their belt. If Microsoft would focus on first party, they would be able to match up against Sony. But they're pretty stupid so they'll never get around doing that.)

6. Stir the media up against the XBOX 360 because their actions reek of pure desperation.

(Rofl, stir up the media against the 360? In what way? List them. List every way in which Sony stirred the media against the 360. I can list many ways in which Microsoft stirred the media against the PS3. I could start with Metal Gear Solid 4, and move on to all the arrogant talk they've spewed for months. Can you do that with Sony?)

7. REFUSE TO Drop the price on the PS3.

(You're a jackass. They did drop the price to $399.99. It's not as expensive as it was last year. And eventually they will drop the price even lower when the right opportunity comes. They've been outselling the 360 for months so I fail to see why they would drop the price, unless of course they're desperate.)

8. Ripoff of their competitors because they lack a sense of innovation and creation (I.E WIIMOTE, LIVE)

(That's not innovation and creativity on Microsoft's part. Sony's Home and PSN does show a sense of innovation and creativity. Call Home a ripoff of Half Life as much as you want but it's shaping up to be much more than that.)

9. DON’T NEED A NUMBER 9

(Because you couldn't come up with one. INSTANT FAIL.)

Lord20083784d ago (Edited 3784d ago )

1. Because production costs were high. That was a mistake but the price has been lowered. Your point being? Going back to 2006/2007 aren't we?

(says you who still can’t let the RROD go?)

2. In what way? CELL and 3rd party issues? What problems occurred with the CELL and 3rd party? Please discuss them, and enlighten me.

(The cell is still far to complicated and time consuming for some developers, that’s why companies like Valve don’t want anything to do with it)

3. Sony didn't force anyone to adopt to bluray. You fail...you fail badly. Bluray won the format war fair and square. Bluray is shaping up to be the future. The only person who can argue with that are simple-minded 360 fanatics who are running out of things to attack the PS3 on

(Don’t be foolish of course Sony forced Blu Ray on you (was it optional??), Blu ray is and always will be for a niche market, the only benefit of Blu Ray is for lazy developers who don’t want to compress. And lets face it if a game is so big it has to come over multiple disk then fine, it’s quicker to change disks than install after every chapter (MGS4)

4. And Microsoft actually did the same thing. They brainwashed their single console owners into thinking their console will actually last pass 2008. Do you actually think the 360 will last until 2010? 2011? 2012? I'm a PS3 owner and I'm not brainwashed. I knew what I was getting into when I bought a PS3. It will always remain my favorite console because good things are coming for it

(DO YOU THINK the PS3 will still be around in 2012, god you REALLY bought into the whole 10 year lifespan didn’t you, (and you say were brainwashed). 360 has about another 2 years then the new one will be out, once that happens Sony start to show their hand, they will not want to seem a generation behind.)

5. They did not lose 3rd party exclusives because they were arrogant. They do not have the money to outbid Microsoft. They're actually being the smart ones by spending their money on 1st party exclusives. That was the best strategy because 3rd party exclusives are starting to die out. By the time next year shows up, Sony will have plenty of first party exclusives under their belt. If Microsoft would focus on first party, they would be able to match up against Sony. But they're pretty stupid so they'll never get around doing that

(Then how do you explain GTA, it’s known that rockstar wanted to keep it solely exclusive for PS3, but they were completely ignored giving Microsoft chance to swoop in. and what about FF13 Sony’s on the board at Square with at least a 10% share how did Microsoft get that.)

6. Rofl, stir up the media against the 360? In what way? List them. List every way in which Sony stirred the media against the 360. I can list many ways in which Microsoft stirred the media against the PS3. I could start with Metal Gear Solid 4, and move on to all the arrogant talk they've spewed for months. Can you do that with Sony?)

(Phil Harrison has criticised Microsoft for planning to put two versions of the new Xbox 360 console on the market, claiming the decision will merely "create confusion" for consumers. (This was before PS3 was released, and theirs more where that came form)
http://www.gamesindustry.bi...

7. You're a jackass. They did drop the price to $399.99. It's not as expensive as it was last year. And eventually they will drop the price even lower when the right opportunity comes. They've been outselling the 360 for months so I fail to see why they would drop the price, unless of course they're desperate

(You FOOL, the system should have been released at $399.99 not reduced to that with one of it’s main components removed (backwards Compatibility), keep in mind that Sony should be in first place by now NOT 3rd, no matter how you spin it Nintendo is trouncing you and Microsoft was expected to be out of the race by now.)

8. That's not innovation and creativity on Microsoft's part. Sony's Home and PSN does show a sense of innovation and creativity. Call Home a ripoff of Half Life as much as you want but it's shaping up to be much more than that

Here I made I simple list for you to follow.
Rumble – Stolen from Nintendo
Analogue – Stolen from Nintendo
Trophies – Stolen from 360
Sixaxis – Stolen from Nintendo
Wireless – Stolen from Nintendo
Home – Stolen from Second Life

If anything Nintendo are the only ones with innovation everyone else just follows.

9. Because you couldn't come up with one. INSTANT FAIL.

And you’d know what failure is wouldn’t you

karlostomy3784d ago (Edited 3784d ago )

unlike you, I have a life and many excellent games to play on my console.

Therefore I cannot be bothered typing 2000+ word essays replying to your idiotic drivel that will just get ignored by your common-sense-bypass-chip, which you had implanted once you became a member of the SDF clone army.

I have seen countless people make valid points against your arguments in hundreds of posts and you still can only ever see your own point of view.

Aren't you sick of trying so hard? SOny severely messed up their firmware. again!
... just accept it and move on!

No wonder you so uptight and angry
Maybe that is also why you are single and (oh so) lonely?

Think about it, hun.

juuken3784d ago (Edited 3784d ago )

(says you who still can’t let the RROD go?)

Err...because the RROD is still an issue? While Microsoft is trying to work on the problem, it's still an issue. Even worse, they're starting to have space issues on their system. What's even more stupid is the fact that my brother has a 360 now, and I was trying to play some games, only for the controllers to disconnect every five seconds. I mean, how stupid is that? I can charge my controller on my PC for the PS3 and it'll be ready to go so I can play some games. Oh, and karl, I have awesome games to play for my PS3 as well. In fact, I can play backward capability games and we all know how the 360 is known for having the worst backward capabilities.

(The cell is still far to complicated and time consuming for some developers, that’s why companies like Valve don’t want anything to do with it)

Because Valve are lazy bastards. Try saying that to Kojima. Try saying that to Isomnaic. Try saying that to any developer developing games on the PS3. Nothing is hard in this world if you give it a shot. The help is right there but Valve refuses to seek help. Could you explain that?

That's why Sony will make Valve and every other developer hating on the CELL eat their words with first party titles.

You lose.

(Don’t be foolish of course Sony forced Blu Ray on you (was it optional??), Blu ray is and always will be for a niche market, the only benefit of Blu Ray is for lazy developers who don’t want to compress. And lets face it if a game is so big it has to come over multiple disk then fine, it’s quicker to change disks than install after every chapter (MGS4)

Once again, Sony did not force bluray on anyone. If that was the case, then why didn't PS2 owners graduate to the PS3 yet? That's not forcing bluray on anyone.

I suggest *you* stop being foolish.

And I suppose you're a developer who knows about compression and bluray? Compression looks like a very difficult process. Compression will only make the quality look worse on games, especially multi-platform games. You have a major developer saying that compression will make the quality much worse so how is compression the solution? Please explain that one to me.

(DO YOU THINK the PS3 will still be around in 2012, god you REALLY bought into the whole 10 year lifespan didn’t you, (and you say were brainwashed). 360 has about another 2 years then the new one will be out, once that happens Sony start to show their hand, they will not want to seem a generation behind.)

Do you think the 360 will still be around in 2012? I believe Sony will maintain a ten year lifespan because of the PS2. The PS2 started out slow the same way and YET it managed to be one of the best consoles on the market. Microsoft will unveil a new system soon enough because of space issues on the system and the fact that we're slowly approaching what the future will be like years from now. Soon, developers will be creating bigger, and longer games. And if they can't make do with the 360 and it's space, then they will move on to the PS3.

Don't be naive.

If anything, you're the one that's brainwashed. I can acknowledge both the good and bad issues between the PS3 and the 360. You want to defend Microsoft and the 360 and not acknowledge the shortcomings of the 360.

(Then how do you explain GTA, it’s known that rockstar wanted to keep it solely exclusive for PS3, but they were completely ignored giving Microsoft chance to swoop in. and what about FF13 Sony’s on the board at Square with at least a 10% share how did Microsoft get that.)

Sony owns 8% of the shares in Square, not 10%. And once again, you're an idiot. I said that Sony could not outbid Microsoft because it seems as if Microsoft has infinitely large pockets. Sony used their money wisely by working on first party studios. They knew that 3rd party exclusives were slowly dying. And they are not the type to buy out developers because they don't throw around money like Microsoft does.

Can you explain to me why Microsoft doesn't have first party games? Can you explain why they would rather throw around money on timed exclusives and third party rather than building up on first party?

That's Sony's biggest strength and they will use that against Microsoft because the folks at Microsoft are a bunch of idiots.

(Phil Harrison has criticised Microsoft for planning to put two versions of the new Xbox 360 console on the market, claiming the decision will merely "create confusion" for consumers. (This was before PS3 was released, and theirs more where that came form)
http://www.gamesindustry.bi...

You can't even spell criticized for that matter. Phil Harrison was correct in saying that because it did in fact create confusion among the consumers. Microsoft completely abandoned the people they had for the original XBox and got started on the 360, thus rushing it out the market. Harrison knew what he was talking about because Microsoft ignored the userbase they had on the original XBox and created the XBox 360. They forced consumers of the original XBox to jump to the XBox 360.

And you took that article out of context...just as I suspected. Try rereading the article jackass.

And may I dare say that the original XBox was a lot more reliable than the 360.

(You FOOL, the system should have been released at $399.99 not reduced to that with one of it’s main components removed (backwards Compatibility), keep in mind that Sony should be in first place by now NOT 3rd, no matter how you spin it Nintendo is trouncing you and Microsoft was expected to be out of the race by now.)

You're the idiot, not me.

Backward capability was removed to try and reduce production costs once again. To some consumers, that may not have been a wise move but Sony wanted to focus their full attention on the PS3. I'm sure Sony knew what they were doing when they removed backward capability. Despite doing that, their systems are still being sold out in major retailer stores such as Walmart and Best Buy. Many people bought PS3's to play PS3 games, not PS2 games.

"Here I made I simple list for you to follow.
Rumble – Stolen from Nintendo (Um...no. That was not stolen from Nintendo and you have no proof of it.)

Analogue – Stolen from Nintendo (Analog, not Analogue. And again you have no legitimate proof of that.)

Trophies – Stolen from 360 (Um...no. The trophy system is quite different from achievments. I find it amusing how Microsoft came up with medals right after Sony announced trophies. Who's doing the copying now?)

Sixaxis – Stolen from Nintendo (Again, no proof of this.)

Wireless – Stolen from Nintendo (Again, no proof of this.)

Home – Stolen from Second Life (In your own little world, you believe that. Once again, no legitimate proof.)

If anything Nintendo are the only ones with innovation everyone else just follows.

(And I wouldn't deny that. I support both Sony and Nintendo. Nintendo are the ones who helped develop Sony. Sony and Nintendo had a pretty good relationship and a rivalry as well. But of course you ignored that, didn't you?)

(And you’d know what failure is wouldn’t you)

Yes I would because....you're made of fail once again. Have fun in third place good sir, and watch how Microsoft screws over their userbase once again with a new system when it's all said and done. :)

Lord20083784d ago (Edited 3784d ago )

I must apologise, I could not get to the end of your response as you ramble on way to long – but here’s just a brief reply for you………..

First and foremost

It’s is criticised not criticized the ENGLISH SPELLING (where your language comes from you IDIOT).

You clearly have too much time on your hands, and while I could go through every point you made then make a counter claim I feel it would do no good.

You seem to have some sort of agenda against Microsoft and far to much obsession with Sony, while Microsoft have copied many features from different consoles they have still managed to bring many advantages to this generation.

The trouble with fanboys like you is your constant whining about how Microsoft are steeling all your games, how they are using underhanded tactics, how they are attacking your poor venerable PS3.

I will never win with fanboys like you because it’s an obsession, and the trouble with an obsession you will never see anything past your own point of view.

what makes people think this update is causing these FOUR problems? Seriously, just the timing?

ruibing3786d ago

Four anonymous users out of millions who have made the upgrade...

StephanieBBB3786d ago (Edited 3786d ago )

the first 2 are because thier blueray drive has broken, not because of the update. Happned to me once before. Probably bricked by dust or too hot/cold temperature in the rooms.

Can't connect one: Let me guess you have been testing GTA 4 or Cod 4 and then say that you can't stay connected to ANY game... This will fix itself just relax it's just something with the psn network. Nothing with the patch to do either.

Cod4 saves being gone is total BS: Sometimes you fail to connect to the game server which holds your score and because of that when you choose perks they won't be saved on the game server. Try waiting a day before you post OMG OMG BRICKED!

jesus christ people are up in arms...

NONE of these problems reported are related to the update at all.

These are regular problems that can happen to people at any time. It just happened to coincide with the update for those four people.

It has happened to our PS3 before. But never again.

I really do like how when less than 1% of PS3 users with the update have problems, it's perfectly fine for a 'news' blogger to go out there and proclaim that the PS3 is having MASSIVE PROBLEMS.

I think it's admirable that Sony's PS3 OS team has the dedication to correct any minor glitch of a problem the PS3 runs into with-in a three week period.

I have to admit that made me laugh, never played it though so can't pass comment on the game itself

Wow all this nonsense in a PS3 article. Even the PS3 droids can't help but talk about the 360, it must be good!
