I have 2 things to say. 1. there were hackers on ps3 before some virgin cracked the ps3. 2. 12% and fail = sony epic fail.

1st try failed at 9%, 2nd try failed at 11%, 3rd try failed at 8%…

Why can’t you ever release these patches in the morning to spread out the bandwidth. No, you have to always release them in the evening when we’re getting home from work and now we can’t play online because we can’t download due to the servers being overwhelmed.

Thank you for absolutely nothing Sony; the useless endeavors you make to spurn the hacker community and ruin everything for those of us who actually buy everything.
A security patch that fails and locks everyone out of the PSN is an f’ing waste of space, get your crap together or start facing the loss of customers.

I doesn’t even pass 0% Sony, if you ruined my PS3 and I won’t be able to update no more longer I’m so going to sue you.

I understand you wanna ban the hackers but ruining the system of the loyal users like me….honestly that’s crap

49% at 30 minutes. See it for what it is, folks. One step closer to Ultron.

Update seems to be going fine for me. Looking forward to hearing what’s announced tonight (I’m on the west coast).

As far as the lack of new features in updates, I’m sure something is going to be coming eventually. My PS3 does everything I want it to and more

Security is better than nothing. I’d rather have some security than not being able to enjoy my games.

+ Powie on January 26th, 2011 at 6:43 pm said:

Remember when Sony actually used to release firmware updates with features? I understand trying to stop hackers, but seriously Sony sure does suck lately, with your lame “Community” software update that killed the community, to the crappy trophy website that’s been broken almost a year.

Thanks for the heads up Eric.

137

+ SlAyEr522 on January 26th, 2011 at 6:43 pm said:

Well this is useless, Sony should just give up. They can’t win this battle. They have come and they will conquere all that stand in they’re path.

I wish they would add something, anything, to these security patches to make it worthwhile for the 95% or so PS3 owners who are honest.

+ StonimusPrime on January 26th, 2011 at 6:45 pm said:

No probs here. Took maybe 10 minutes tops. Now after that breather…back to looking at dirty pics of hot woman and watching Ancient Aliens.

You took other os from us,now we take ur console and pirate ur games.

+ Uglyd0g97 on January 26th, 2011 at 6:45 pm said:

It’s interesting to see how many people think this “security” update is about game hackers. By security, it most likely means people who have found ways to hack the PSN store and download stuff for free, not people who cheat a few extra kills out of call of duty…
