Don't Update Your PS3 Today!

As of, oh, right now, there should be a prompt on your PS3 asking you to upgrade to 4.45. Whatever you do, don't accept it. Not yet, anyway.

We've started getting reports from some readers that the update is bricking their system, locking their consoles on the boot-up "ribbon" screen, and a thread on Sony's official forums shows the issue is far from isolated.

It's obviously not locking up everyone's console, far from it, but there are enough already affected that you won't want to roll the dice.

Problem after update to 4.45 [Sony, thanks everyone who sent this in. Sorry about your PS3s :( ]

But don't they care about the gamer?

Of course they do, they'll make it right as always and you can thank your lucky stars for that. After all it's part of the Live, Learn and Love philosophy and way of life that Sony not only teaches but practices as well. So rest assure TC Sony has go your your and the millions of the PlayStation Families best interest in mind and will resolve the problem ASAP. :)

maybe it's intentional, to make you buy another ps3. knowing sony, they'd do anything for a couple more units of sales. :(

it happened to me on my last update, it fixed easy though, all I had to do was throw the power switch in the back off, and turn it on again, and it booted up normally, did that to me before as well and same solution

It won't effect everyone now, but there is a chance. Update 4.41 bricked my last two ps3's. Both where stuck in the update loop, getting new ribbon cables doesn't help. Now one says a serious error has occurred and won't boot at all. Only way to get it fixed is to send it in and pay $150. I could just add $100 to that $150 and buy a new one instead.

Not sure if i'm onto something, but this might be worth sharing. Boot PS3 into safe mode (hold power until you hear two beeps.) Restore file system (if you get a warning you're about to format the hard drive, that's the wrong option) Your system may give you an error and say you should format. Say no and turn the system off. Repeat the process...Mine seems to be getting a little farther each time.

Kind of like MS made the Xbox 360 red ring. To make people buy more consoles.
