PS3 4.60 update problems after installation

Yesterday we told you that a PS4 1.72 update had gone live, but unfortunately did not bring any new features for users to enjoy. Now, we have confirmation that Sony has released the PS3 4.60 update, but again new features it seems are hard to come by on this occasion.

Security and stability updates are the flavour of the month for Sony as both PS4 and PS3 users sit and wait for new functionality to arrive on their respective consoles.

However, we have seen some worrying reports suggesting that the PS3 4.60 is bricking consoles. It’s obviously not widespread yet, but more than one user has revealed on the Neogaf gaming forums that it has happened to them after installing the 4.60 update.

One potential solution if you have experienced similar problems is to hold down the PS3 power button until you hear two beeps and try again. Having said that, some of the affected users in the thread above stated that it happened again after trying that method so it could be pot luck.

If you are still gaming daily on your PS3, let us know if you have had any problems with your console after updating to PS3 4.60. Any other reports of bricked devices?

I’ve had 360’s & ps3’s & what I’ve decided is that game consoles are undependable!! If something happens to your console, you pay more money.. Has anyone ever had any hardware problems with a PC? No. The hardware may be more expensive, but it lasts a hell of a lot longer!

I think Sony rolled out this update to brick the ps3 consoles so people would go out & buy ps4’s! Right after I installed the update, it caused my ps3 to stop working.. VERY FRUSTRATING because this is SONY’S FAULT & there’s nothing you can do besides spend money repairing the console.

I HAVE NEWS FOR YOU SONY!!

I’m not buying your SH1T anymore! I’m going PC!!!

Sony refused to do anything. Spoke to an agent and supervisor. Said there is no way the software update could cause the red blinking light and the 3 beeps. 45 minutes later all he would offer is the $129.95 repair service.

Everything was fine and I had no issues. The 4.6 update occurred and the next time I turned it on I experienced the red light of death. I have an early model CECHE01 and my disc is inside. Rather exact timing for my console to die.

I update my PS3 today
I don’t know if it is related to firmware but it seems that it can’t ready blue-ray games
before update I was able to play it without any problem, after update I can’t
the disc is not even running, I mean the same position as I insert it without any change
Is it a hardware problem or firmware ?
forgive my poor English
