This happens to a certain small percentage of PS3 users nearly every Patch. My old 80G Fat unit got the Red Light of Death after one such update. Which occured right after they updated their encryption following that hacker that exposed their lazy encryption coding back then , it basically smoked my unit. Again most updates just haven't Bricked this large of a user base.

I decided to give all my beloved doh.gif games away to the local Fire Station & my Secretaries grandson, who got the motherload of 30+ top games. The boy refers to me as God. biggrin.gif

LOL at the comments in the source article.

It says certain people are affected by this firmware update. I hear its people who have swapped out the stock HDD for a larger capacity HDD.

It's alright you guys, even if you were updating your PS3 during seeing this I'm sure that there are a few hours left on that update.

Not a big deal. Sony is going to release a fix for it, so, perhaps those that think this is such a big deal shouldn't fire all salvos...

Sony just hurt themselves in the next gen console war and MS didn't even have to fire a shot.

If sony released a way to flash back to stable fireware on USB, I'm sure hackers will quickly figure out something... I can't see sony doing this.

After all that good press Sony got. They can't even update their 7 year old console correctly. It's a bootloader issue. Once you complete the update you have a paper weight.


TROLLOLOL. Nothing wrong with the update. Everyone I know has 4.50 and consoles work fine. Dont blame the update for your bad console.
