PS3 Update 3.30: List of Post Install Problems

By Jamie Pert - Apr 22, 2010

Today seems to have been a frustrating day for some of you PS3 gamers out there, it all sounded so promising when Sony announced that the compulsory firmware update (version 3.30) would add stereoscopic 3D support along with a refined trophy system, however we have been hounded with reports of problems.

There seem to be four main problems which people are reporting only occurred after installing the update, the worst of the three is that the console becomes ‘bricked’ following the update, which basically means your PS3 has magically turned into nothing more than a glorified paperweight, the other three issues are bad, but not that bad.

The other problems fall into three categories, a lot of readers are complaining that the update has resulted in the PS3 no longer reading discs, other readers are reporting that wireless controllers no longer connect with the console, and finally a small minority of people suggest that there are sound-related issues.

Although it is not a post install problem we are hearing that some people cannot even successfully download this update, we would usually recommend downloading it to a memory stick, however given all of the reported problems we believe that it may be worth waiting until tomorrow perhaps, if you understand the risks check out this link.

Sony have not yet officially acknowledged the problems, therefore try to keep us posted with your problems and solutions, we will then do our best to keep you informed with the situation.

    Anyone know what the deal is with the game version updates? To go online on black ops, fifa etc i have to do a version update as normal but it gets to about 14% and stops and says error code with some bull#### saying suggested actions anyone help?

  • Conmck93

    ye i cant sign into psn network says my email or password is wrong when it clearly isnt

  • Lawrence Melton

    I had to download the update two weeks ago because I recently bought Uncharted 2. At first my games started freezing. After about a week of freezing, the error code 80010514 showed up, and now my BD won't even recognize any disc I put in. I listen to the ps3 and I can't even hear the disc spinning. Before all of this I was able to play games no problem It doesn't make sense!!!

  • cory

    ps3 freezes at 99% installation…cant even turn the system on…wont respond…thanks sony…3-4 weeks to be repaired…

  • Big_Davey

    Yeah Ps3 updates suck balls. They take away some of the controls like being able to turn off that damn message scroll at the top. And they impose new constrictive controls. I like how my Ps3 ran right out of the box. All these updates just suck. Now the want you to pay to repair a problem they caused. F**K SONY.. Think i'll be trading it in for an X360.

  • shit

    poop

  • Allen

    mine 2 my ps3 is a 80 gb and when i was about 2 play mw2 it said 2 updated so i did nd wen i inserted the disc it wont read it so i tried a blueray movie (brand new..AVATAR) so it wouldnt show up so wen i called sony dey said dey havent received dat complaint dat i was da 1st 1 nd dat i needed 2 pay 130$ plus shipping! so it woulve been 170$ dats TOTAL BULLSHIT!

  • thisisrandom?

    All i know is after this update i have a couple games that have the crappiest framrate now. oblivion was moving like 1 fps on a shivering isles quest, no joke. better just be temporary. sony is really starting to get annoying with this crap. i'm not replacing this p.o.s. if it dies

  • Tom

    i connect to the PSN network for a short while…after that inet is gone again on my ps3 and it wont come back…only a reboot…Tried resetting modem etc etc but didnt work…THIS SUCKS!

  • Van

    Hello everybody

    I have had my playstation for a little over ther year. I keep it very clean and take care of it very well and always update plus I don’t use it so often. 2 days ago I was playing and decided take a break. When I come back to play it prompted to update for latest version. I updated as usual and everything went Ok and my playstation restarts the problem starts. It cannot read a game disc. I tried and tried and even tried several BD movies. Nothing works. Then I went online to search what was causing the problem. I’ve found out bunch of people are experiencing same issue right after the update. I called Sony live supporrt. The first thing the rep asked me when did you purchase your PS3 and have I purchased extended warranty. Then he said I have to take to the technician to get fixed it will be $150.00. You have no other option. What kind of service is that. After all Sony releases update which can break our system and hoping customer’s warranty was over. This is the most ridiculious thing I have ever heard that.

  • hazzmatt

    I pretty much only use my ps3 as a Blu-ray player. So, I popped in a BD the other night and a message pops up stating that I MUST perform an update in order to continue. I did the mandatory update, everything seemed OK, and I watched my movie. I usually just leave my ps3 powered up all the time, but for some reason I decided to shut it down before going to bed. When I went to turn it on the next night, I got nothing — black screen. On repeated power-ups I'll occasionally get a few pixels of "crud", but usually just nothing. I don't give a rat's ass about trophies or 3D. My ps3 played Blu-ray Discs beautifully before this "update", and I was thrilled about streaming NetFlix. I didn't need an update; didn't want an update. Don't force me to do a completely unnecessary update that renders my system completely unusable. This seems like a great new way to sell new products: mandatory incapacitation of older products so we're forced to buy new stuff. WTF!

  • Hawkeye

    Why is Sony taking too long to officially consider it a problem and come up with a solution? Obviously this isn't a joke if soooo many users are complaining of broken consoles. Please give atleast an update to fix it. (my console's problem are the controllers and network connections) Come on Sony!

  • Hay_den

    I have a 60gb fat ps3. Ive had it for about 2 1/2 years and never any problems whatsoever.

    I installed the 3.30 mandatory update, restarted my ps3, and now it does not read any disc- ps3,dvd,cd,bluray,ps2

    The cd logo in the top right keeps flashing but the disc never loads or shows up on the home menu.

    Tried to restore default settings, started it in safe mode, and even reformatted my hard drive, but none of these worked.

    I called sony (800-345-SONY) and all they said i could do is pay them $150 to have them a send me a refurbished one, and that it was just a coincidence that my ps3 broke after the update.

    So basically i installed the mandatory update, it broke my ps3, and now i have to pay sony $150. WTF?!!!!!!!

    Anyone else having this problem call them and complain (800-345-SONY)

  • Djnorthsky

    ok if anyone is still reading this post heres the deal.
    1) for those whose systems can't read discs this is what I want you to do. If you put in a Disc (game or movie) and the clock up at the top left stops spinning like it has loaded but you don't see the emblem for the disc (what you click on to start it) then you need to reformat the harddrive. Only if the clock in the top right stops spinning as if it has loaded. It typically works.

  • Eddie

    Reading disc Issue – I purchased an 80G PS3 with Metal Gear Solid and experienced the disc read issue. The way I fixed it was as follows: I went into safe mode –

    Touch power button you hear 1 beep
    continue to hold 5 seconds 1 beep
    continue to hold 5 seconds powers down

    Touch power button you hear 1 beep
    continue to hold 5 seconds 1 beep
    continue to hold 5 second double beep and release power button.

    You will see several options.

    1st I rebuilt the database and let it run its course.

    Followed the above process again and went into safe mode again
    I ran the option to Restore File System – this apparently restored the BDROM driver for the PS3 on the HD drive which was apparently corrupted after the 3.30 update.

    I threw in a game and it found it!

    Sony wanted me to send my ps3 back for repairs and charge me $150 for it. The e-mails from playstation consumer services all sucked. None of them told me to do the above which actually fixed my issue.

  • Michael Lichnock

    I went an updated my PS3 console with the 3.30 update and now I can not play any game or watch either DVD or Blue ray movies, everything was working fine before the update, is there any one out there that can recommend a fix other than sending to sony and paying 150 dollars for. My machine worked fine prior to the update and I should not have to payt anything for the problem it has now

  • cuase ps3s suk

    hahahaha hahahahahaha shame on u then for buying a ps3 i hope they explode

    XBOX rules

    • Hawkeye

      can't even spell "cause" right. haha what a faggot hater.

  • matee

    In my case, after installing the firmware update, everything was fine. Until I found out I can't sign in to the network. After which more problems came in, like unrecognizable external hardrive and wireless controllers. I hope sony fixes this ASAP. This is getting frustrating.

  • Chris Granton

    Sound occasionally goes off since this last update when playing GTA Episodes Of Liberty City but most annoying problem now is when I come to install game updates. It will take several attempts installing some of them sometimes as I'm forever getting the error code and message 'an error occured during the install operation' (80029564) I've rang Sony several times to try and find a solution and have even reformatted my entire hard drive. I'm now convinced this is a firmware issue!

  • Alex

    Mine cannot read discs anymore. Sony UK Customer Support were extremely well prepared when I called reading off statistics about how many machines had been updated and were fine, they know there are problems. They've asked me to pay £130 but I'm just email the CEO as I have no intention of paying a penny for their c**k up. It would be lovely to see that admit the mistakes but I don't think it will happen. I've contacted BBC Watchdog as well and hope if enough people do they will run a story. I hate Sony.

  • jack

    Alright I have the 160 gig and whenever I turn mine on I hear three beeps and my game doesn’t show up when it turns on. So I take out mw2 put it back in and it automaticaly starts. The game doesn’t load though its a blank gray screen ahhhh I’m soo mad I’m a level 69 to and I was just about to prestige

  • Harry

    Cannot read disks since the 3.30 which was a mission to download and only did it under sony instructions. Very disappointed, considering crossing the bridge to Mr Gates.

  • Brian

    Mine updated fine and worked for several days. Then it froze on playing a blu-ray disk. Now it wont read any discs. Have done all the reformatting tricks to no avail.

  • JofaceM

    My HEAVY RAIN game just completely restarted. All progress lost. And it killed my dog.

  • DannyChaoss

    No issues for me. I’m running one of the new 250GB slims.

  • Sam

    Random game crashes. Certain games that require a game update are not listed on trophy collection. Also, no trophies can be acquired in those games.

    Example: Borderlands. Without installing the 1.03 game update, I get trophies and it shows on my “trophy collection”. When I install the 1.03 update, the game disappears from “trophy collection” and I can’t get any trophies from the game. Same thing occurred with Star Wars: Force Unleashed. Trouble is that I need to update Star Wars for the trophies.

    Game crashes have happened randomly during star wars, final fantasy, quantum of solace.

  • Tim

    I decided to wait a week before I update my console since it seems like people are getting major problems.

    I hope sony releases 3.31 or something asap to fix these update probs.

    I thought sony actually tests all updates with all consolse versions?? I guess I was wrong this time

  • Mike

    Same thing with my 60G system. Within 3 hours after the 3.30 update it will no longer read any bd or game disks and it locked up during MW2 play. Normal DVD's work fine though. I really hope Sony provides a fix for this quickly because to say that all of the failures are coincidental is total BS and they know it. I remember feeling happy that I had a PS3 when I heard about all of the X-box issues – I wonder how they are feeling now….because I am not happy with Sony anymore.

  • Jack

    yea I got this update 3.30 and I am having audio glitches on some of my games like killzone 2 and uncharted 2 and sometimes they freeze up feels like a beta version to me this update the way my console acts hope that sony will fix this issue on the next firmware update.

  • Eamon

    My 120 gb launch slim now wont play any dvd's in widescreen anymore. This has only happened since my system was updated to 3.30.

  • random fish

    MUTHA fukin 3D i dont get what's the point if we wanted to play a war game in 3D we mite as well just go to afgan lol

  • tom

    there are a couple of things to do for those who have a playstation witch still to some degree works witch have these symptoms: controller not working unless plugged inn, cannot connect to internet, freezing in some games! 1 to fix the controller and web: go to system setup, reset system setup youll need a scart cable for this and keep your controller plugged in when prompted push the ps button set up your system keep the controller plugged in untill you get the message controller fully charged, on my system the error of games freezing was solved by deleting my game data and doing a quick format of the system (yeah it sucks) remember to go to account management and select disconnect system before you format to save your downloads! and if you have addons they may cause your game to get bugged in assassinss creed 2 i cant use sequence 13 that i downloaded because of all the bugs that make the game useless after the update. safe copy all your savegames if you wish then do the quick format that solved my games freezing. try these steps, i hope it works for you i still havent had any ingame problems.

  • Simon Ellwood

    Sony is an "also ran" in all its markets but its pricing tells that no-one inside Sony realises this fact. The culture will wallpaper any failings, because the ostrich response preserves the sensibilities of this once great compny.

  • Matt

    Since the update my controller wont connect wirelessly, I have to hold the power button down twice to get it switch off as holding it down once just turns the TV Black! Playing MW2, If I get into a match, it crashes when the scoreboard comes up. I've switched it off and wont touch it until an update fix comes out. Help!

  • Clint

    I am working on a friend’s PS3 80GB, and I have noticed that it will only freeze up AFTER I enable the wireless internet. If I go into safe mode and restore default settings, then I can use the system error-free. I backed stuff up onto a CF card, played music for an hour and everything was fine. So I configure the wireless settings to access my AP and when I go to system settings to test the connection, it freezes and will not operate. I hold the power button until it beeps and it will just blink indefinitely. I would say there must be a problem with the wireless connectivity. This freezing has only occurred since the 3.30 update, the owner has had this PS3 for over a year with ZERO problems. Does anyone have a backed up copy of an update prior to 3.30? I can try that and see if the problem is still present.

  • boombeli

    Add me to the bricked list :( I have a reconditioned 60GB model, which has been working fine for 2 years (my original one was replaced by Sony under warranty after the BluRay drive went titsup after only 11 months).

    I performed the update last night and initially everything looked fine, but I began playing COD MW2 and within a few seconds of the first game (and just after getting First Blood!) the PS3 shuts down and beeps 3 times. I start it up again and initially it starts up and tells me I should shut down gracefully in future (!!), but now the controller won't work. After 30 seconds or so, it shuts down again and I see the dreaded YLOD. Since then, it won't turn on for more than a second or so before YLOD.

    There are far too many similar reports (particularly with the 60GB model) for this to be mere coincidence. Anyone got any ideas on how we can get Sony to admit that this is a fault and replace the units free of charge? I would be interested to see if they actually ever tested 3.30 on the 60GB model before release – i bet you any money they didn't.

    • Same thing is happening to me with the shut down and red light and beeps.

  • FABO

    Mine Can’t Read Disc anymore and possibly have to get a new laser apparently…thanks a lot sony good job.

  • Tim

    First attempt failed to download at the 99% mark.

    Second atempt downloaded and installed – but failed to recognise controller.

    A few reboots, plugging in and unplugging the controller eventually got it back in bluetooth land.

    Wireless then seemed buggy – unable to obtain in IP. Again, another reboot brought this back.

    Now I find minor sound issues. In particular, Little Big Planet's audio skips (in much the same as an audio CD might skip). Not sure if this is related to network lag, but found once I'd dropped out of all games it continued to skip – causing the UI (even the XMB) to 'wait' while the audio processing caught up to it.

    Pretty bad update Sony. I've owned this console for 2 weeks, to find two badly received updates. I'm not an entirely happy consumer right now.

  • inyaface

    i updated with no problems

  • Max

    Netflix streaming keeps on kicking you out, while streaming a movie, some error message comes up on the screen from PS3, not from Netflix, then the whole home screen is acting weird, nothing can be selected because everything looks as if every option rotating, like a cd on the screen with an hour glass until the image shows. PS3 does not shut down, have to do it manually. All of this happened after few days ago update, and then last night a new update was pushed, solved nothing, seems as if things got worse. I paid well over $700 for this original ps3 60g console, and lately it’s giving way too many issues. Because PS3 is way too hungry for the market out there since the whole 3D market is being pushed, but while trying to grab extra buck out there, they are harming their current clientele. I’m very angry at them right now, antihero day and I will call to share piece of my mind with Sony.

  • bibi

    i am having problems retrieving movies from netflix the movie is 1hr 33min and it takes like 3hrs just to watch it and this started after i updated

  • Deornorth

    I have a PS3 120Gb slim, bought in October. The update was applied- all I have is a green light. I can eject discs, but that is all.

    Switching off for 10 min at the mains does nothing.

    Any other ideas??

  • jcraigynwa

    i done this update today now can,t play games or blu rays its a disgrace why put these updates out when they don,t work

    by the way does anyone have a fix for it or is it just a case of a full format and wait and see if that works

  • Daniel

    I turned my ps3 connected to the internet and found that there was a console update to be done before i could go online so i proceeded to do this, after the update was completed i turned on my controllers… They didn't connect i plugged them in, they were slow but connected eventually then i unplugged the controllers, they disconnected. Now my internet won't connect up again it wont let me sign into Playstation network as i says i have no signal.

    My ps3 is a new 120gb slim… Not happy!

  • rbu

    downloaded said software no probs ever since haven't been able to get on damn internet since…keeps saying connection not found but net is still usable on pc anybody…..wassup?

  • liam roberts

    since the new update i keep getting signed out of psn after about 5 – 10 mins of online gameplay. i dont no if this is just my router being f****d up or its the update, has this been happening to anyone else???

    • rbu

      near enough, downloaded 3.30 not been able to get on net since worked ok prior…
      says check connection….but is aok also doing network check says…..ip address timed out man is this f********* weird

  • Grehg

    Just downloaded it over wifi. No problems. Kinda weird though screen went black like halfway through the download. And the. It came back on and installed. Which also got about half way through and then rebooted. But it showed the update downloaded. And I’m watching Avatar right now with no problems. Wonder if it added netflix support natively.

  • Nick

    i have no audio

  • Scott

    Since the update, I have discovered the following:
    1. Unable to play Dragon Age: Origins, as the game causes the PS3 to freeze at random intervals.
    2. Both of my Dualshock 3 controllers will no longer work wirelessly. Resetting them and re-assigning them does not help.

  • Bazler

    I cant update to 3.30. It gets to about 60% and then stops with an error. I cant play any games online until i update !

  • Morley

    After I updated, all my games, dvd's and blu-rays freeze at some point during play. I know a lot of other people have the same problem :(

  • sameold

    After the update, COD2 MW, freezes durning online play frequently. I never had this problem prior to the update.
    Also, today I tried to play a BD Movie and it gave me an Error code. This is the first time I ever tried to play a BD in my PS3, So i'm not sure if the problem is related to the update or not.

    Hopefully they get this fixed soon.

    Thanks

  • Jenny

    PS3 is freezing with Dragon Age Origins, consistently and irretrievably, forcing a restart.

    • Cap’n Incognito

      Ditto.

      Game is currently unplayable.

  • Tolan

    I got my system less than a month ago, refurbished from GS (1yr warranty)…so I know it's not because my system is wearing out. Right after the update, the system first crashed on a download screen and froze every time since… I looked up what could be wrong and in one of these posts, someone said that they unplugged it from the net and it has worked since… so I did and it didn't freeze all night… Today I played echochrome for a while, no problems, then I loaded up PoP Classic, but didn't play it long and went for MvC2…which promptly froze… after that, the system froze again while loading up MvC2 and then during bootup! I've noticed that when it freezes, the fans are blowing pretty hard in the system. I have not tried any game from disk since the update. I have a 60gb so I can understand my hardware not being completely compatable with new updates that are really designed for the slim….

  • WHY?!?!?!?!?

    My ps3 can’t even start the update because it can’t find the connection. Everytime it gets to the downloading screen it stays at frikin 0%! What do I do?

  • Michael

    did the update and my controller wont work at all, and the i get the same problems aswell with the game and the freezing screens. this 3.30 is the most wankers of an update ever. whats the point in sending out the update when the 3D tvs are blood expensive anyways. well in the UK they are.

    SONY, you really do need to put out updates for each version of the console…..

  • randydwarf

    I downloaded the update last night and since then have been unable to play anything. Initially my game disks were being recognised but when I tried to start them I received an 80010514 error code. Now the disks are not being recognised at all. I have phoned Sony in the UK – they say that no one else has reported a similar problem and it will cost me £110 for a replacement. Interestingly this was the first option offered to me before any diagnostics took place. The only thing the "adviser" tried was inserting a DVD and then inserting a game disk neither of which was recognised. I have been googling and trying different things all day none of which have worked admittedly but still none of the potential solutions was offered by the Sony "adviser". I am waiting for a callback from one of the supervisers – I will post the outcome when (if) that happens

    • Eddie

      Keep us posted. After the update to 3.30 my ps3 was no longer able to recognize any discs.

          After my update, sometimes dics would not be reconised, now the ps3 wont start properly, it wont connect to the tv, no menu screen comes up, i finally got a message before, ''unable to retirve update 3.30''.. now tell us that it has nothing to do with this update

    • Lawrence Melton

      Yes please keep us updated because this is basically exactly what happened to me. First the error code would come up. Now the error code doesn't because the ps3 doesn't recognize any disc

  • tod36

    my system is a 60gb phat and 1 hour after update refuses to recognise disks ,games most of the time , when it does it then freezes . strange how this happened after the update , sony need to fix this and quickly

  • dilligaf

    my hdmi does not work now after update

  • BC2suckssatancock

    BC2 suck the dick of satan. Well actually it’s not bad. Very detached gameplay. Too much patience required, and everything (although not bad) is sub-par to MW2. Maps, gameplay, graphics, class creation etc. all better than BC2

    • myfootinyoura$$

      Both games are shit FUCK YOU!

  • Mr_Skull

    Just an update.
    I contacted Sony this morning and went through a series of booting in "safe mode" and rebuilding the file system to no avail.
    Their response is it's just a coincidence that my optical drive failed at the same time the system did an upgrade. As a federally employed senior telecommunication technician I can promise you that is an excuse.
    The only option they would do is send it in for repair at a cost of $150 because it is out of warranty. I asked to talk to a supervisor and after another lengthy hold he informed me they would not waive the fee as there are no issues with the firmware my optical drive just failed. Needless to say I'm beyond upset…..

  • Mr_Skull

    I was playing Borderlands and some of my friends got home from works and wanted to play online. So I backed out, tried to get online and the required firmware update popped up. Well boo this may take a few minutes…
    It downloads and install, restarts and now my PS3 does not recognize any disks such as BD movies, DVDs, or games. When you install any disk the clock in the top right corner just spins until the disk is ejected. It's hard to call that a coincidence and many others on PS3 forums have reported the same activity.
    Mine was a 40gig Phat purchased in January 2008, I'm contacting SONY this morning but reports so far is they're denying any responsibility and recommending a return along with a $150 repair.

    • PS3_Soldier

      This is true I have been roaming PS3 forums all day and luckily well not really but usefully I am relived to hear other people are having this issue not just me, had a ps3 delivered today new update and then it wont read games, music CD works but not games.

    My system didn't brick but if I leave myself logged in the system will freeze after a while. It froze 3 times when playing dragon age origins…

  • ABC

    After the update, my wireless controllers arent being detected by the ps3!!!!!!!
    It's like the controllers were left behind with the old firmware

    • song_Ps3

      press the reset button behind the controller…

  • My system downloaded the update completely, then after installing, I watched a blu-ray with my daughter. Shortly after (about 20 minutes), my step-daughter put in a game. 5 minutes into the game, the screen went black and the system beeped 3 times. The power light went to red and flashed continually. Now, all this happened within 5 hours of downloading the update and the system was only used for a total of about 2 & 1/2 hours of that time TOTAL. You can't tell me that's just a coincidence.

    • This happened to me! Is yours fixed?

    framerate in nfs Shift sucks after updating, seems sound related somehow.
    As far as I can see there are no functions gone.
    Yet another worthless update from Sony.

  • unhappy camper

    After the latest update, all the sounds are gone. Games run fine, just without any kind of sounds. It would be most appreciated were Sony to pull their heads out of their arses.

    • Austyn

      i just had that problem after the system restarts so i shut the system off then turned it back on and its fine.

  • Unhappy Camper

    My problem is sound-related. After installing the latest update via Internet, all the sounds are gone. Games run fine, just without any kind of sounds.

    • jaysen

      same here. this is crap and sony says i have to pay 149 to service the machine

  • mw2sucks

    urmum is right, mw2 is filth… the online play blows compared to bc2

    • kjc

  • JOE

    OHH YAH I CAN PLAY AND IT DOWNLOADED QUICKLY. EAT THAT SUCKERS

  • JayP_Double07

    I dont have any ingame sound, with some games i do and others not. Im using a TOSlink cable with a Mix Amp. Games that do produce sound are for example SF4 and Tekken 5 (on HDD) and GoW3 & Heavy Rain ZERO SOUND…!

    Just wanted to play a game tonight… probably not going to use a update directly when it comes out… going to wait for a while… PFFFFF

    • The problem has been resolved… some settings were changed somehow… Called Sony PS Customer Service and they helped me out!

  • Puta Madre

    Another update with more bugs?! Piece of sh*t SONY, 3D games are not readily available yet and ur f*cking giving us early 3D support update???WTF.

    • Simon

      Your fucking retarded, this is not a full 3d update, this is 3d prepping update. The full 3d update will be later on in the year so stop trolling.

  • IMJM

    Credit card stopped functioning… So no euros to Sony for a while.

  • Russ

    the machine wont even turn on to enable me to eject the disc! rang sony who stated they have not heard of any problems and want £130 to repair!!!!!!

  • Jay

    I can't connect to my network anymore

    • mike

      i cannot connect to my network either as when i tried signing on my password hasnt been put in although it has been put onto save password and even though i know my correct password, it says that my e-mail/password is invalid, which is rubbish as i can get onto my e-mail now. it will not let me go onto 'Forgot your password' instead it brings up an error code

  • HunkHandsome

    i CANT EVEN DOWNLOAD MINE,,. SHUTS DOWN WITH AN ERROR AT 70% BEFORE INSTALL. GOD I´M PISSED OFF! CANT SIGN IN TO PLAY MW2 BECAUSE OF THIS NONSENSE…….

    • guest

      my system is now in a constant upgrade cycle. it gets to 60% then gives me an error code. after restarting the system it immediately goes to the update screen again, and does the same thing. the system cannot be started in safe mode, and Sony is offering no help. i have had this system since launch day, and everything was fine until i decided to install the 3.3 firmware update. Sony has told me that the problem is a corrupted file which i caused and they will fix it for $160. I have been a supporter of Sony since the first PlayStation was released, and i have purchased every system on launch day. i have never had a problem with Sony's systems until now. i find it disconcerting that my system failed after a practically mandatory update, and Sony feels that they have no obligation to assist the customer for a problem that is obviously caused by Sony's firmware and not the customer. because of this i do not think that i will be purchasing another PS3 or any other Sony product.
