Great show Bagbee is the man.

What's with the disagrees? Who doesn't like a drunken scot with a thrust for fighting.

Spud shitting the bed. Quality!

And why the hate for Jedward?
They entertain people and they're harmless.
Since when was Eurovision about singing abilities anyway?

Great news that PSN is back on btw!

Don't be upset if you cannot get the update immediately. I have reports from friends in europe that have fragmented but functioning service. The network may not stabilise for several hours, so chillout yall.

CONFIRMED. Michigan---I'm downloading the update right now.

Edit: There's no signing in yet, though as of 7:57PM. It still says "Undergoing Maintenance." I did manage to do the firmware, though.

Is this a worldwide re-launch? And will the PSN store be up?

Edit: Disregard. Powered up the PS3 and was prompted to do the update.

Thanks for the stealth disagrees, I was only asking.

lol, look at the disagrees. Lame ass fanboys. The real kicker is that these ass tard fanboys must just troll these articles all day just to downplay them. When it goes online I wonder if it will crash due to the large traffic that will log in all at once? I mean its going to be huge bandwidth consumption.

mine didnt tell me to change my password. my system shut off when installing. when it came back on new firmware was installed and that was it. anybody else have that problem?
Who  +   1735d ago
When PSN goes back up, it should prompt you to change your password. The update is just a regular update which prepares your system for PSN's return. So far PSN is not back online, but soon hopefully.
jimmywolf  +   1735d ago
in another article if i read it right it when you trying sign in it will prompt the change not after you update firmware
MrBeatdown  +   1735d ago
There's no problem. You probably just left the "Shut system off after update" option checked when you began the update.

When PSN is restored, then you will be prompted to change your password. They can't do it without PSN online.
