I can’t download the firmware. At about %15, it says an error has occurred and it shuts off. I tried again and it’s the same thing.

Security updates.

Woo.

Hoo.

Sony, please don’t turn into Nintendo and make me stop looking forward to updates.

Can a “minor update” actually help? I hope so, ’cause the the new CFW is spreading… it would be a shame for Sony to shut down individual consoles. I wish hackers didn’t do this =(

Too bad my PS3 has the yellow light of death again for the 3rd time. Shoddy work Sony and terrible support. For less than 5 years of ownership I will have spent nearly $100 just to own a PS3 that long let alone all the other thousands of $ I have spent on software! Thanks for nothing but headaches and worries.

Freakin hackers………………..

Thanks Sony for ruining game night. Got booted out of Black Ops because it froze, and I find this crap when I reboot. Unlike city people, our internet out here in the country sucks and takes about 30-45 minutes to download your “minor” update.

Stop with the security updates already!

:P Sony punches pirates

+ osamaFTW on January 26th, 2011 at 6:11 pm said:

anywhere from 9% to 18% system error, my internet is A-OK, whats going on?


25

+ morningdrive on January 26th, 2011 at 6:11 pm said:

hope the hackers are all happy that we have to go through with this. And people asking about what the security patch does, don’t. Of course they aren’t going to go into specifics. because then the hackers will know what they need to do.

WOWOWOWOWOW!!!!! I can’t download this update..keeps telling me error has occurred!!!! Sony broke it again..I wonder if they even test the updates before they actually send it out!!!! Epic failure thank god I have another system that actually works!!!

I was kicked out a game and had to restart my PS3 just now, I think this update freak my system out


29

+ DeadCell34 on January 26th, 2011 at 6:12 pm said:

BTW, the next update better add something instead of security updates. The last 3 or 4 updates were security patches. Get your tech geeks on some new features.

don’t blame Sony for “minor” updates or for security updates, blame the hackers :/

+ blacktarprophecy on January 26th, 2011 at 6:13 pm said:

I can’t believe Sony is daft enough to think the cat and mouse game is going to work in favor of the PS3 when it failed miserably with the PSP.

How large is the update?


37

+ PlayerUMD on January 26th, 2011 at 6:14 pm said:

Well, thanks Sony, this will do for the mean time.

+ FORMIK on January 26th, 2011 at 6:14 pm said:

Lock up the system, and keep them hackers from messing with stuff. Be happy with what you’ve got and quit causing problems, ya jerks!

I heard this patch makes DC Universe Online run at 1080p 60fps with voice chat.

Although that may have been a dream because I remember hearing it while I was having sex with Scarlett Johansen.

Awesome update…can’t wait.

+ Sgt_Kabukiman on January 26th, 2011 at 6:15 pm said:

The update slowly downloads and then stalls and errors at 10%. Lame. I can’t play games, I can’t watch Netflix. This is my first night where I actually get to use my PS3 in a looooong time, and I have to deal with this.

+ sindiewen on January 26th, 2011 at 6:16 pm said:

Yay, another BS update that took up 30 miniuites of my life.

No matter how hard Sony trys to patch the PS3, the modding comunity is still going to crack it


46

+ mlanie10 on January 26th, 2011 at 6:16 pm said:

I got the same error @ about 15%. Ironic that a security patch gives a denial of service to the psn.


47

+ MykeOfAllTrades on January 26th, 2011 at 6:16 pm said:

Update refuses to download at about 15%. Has failed 3 times a row. *Goes back to Ghost Trick*
