PS3 Firmware v3.41 Problems: Game Freezing and Disc Errors?

While the added features to the Playstation Store are nice, we are hearing reports that the new v3.41 firmware update for the PS3 is causing problems for some users. Can any of you confirm this?

PR has had various users complaining of problems after updating to 3.41, while there are others elsewhere who seem to be having similar problems.

We are also hearing that the new firmware update is affecting some games specifically, with Uncharted 2 and LittleBigPlanet mentioned. Sony has not posted any statements regarding problems though – so we imagine the problems are not too serious.

Here is a few reported problems, just to let you know:

1) ”I updated and i’am having problems with playing uncharted 2, multiplayer freezes and sound is lost.”
2) ”I update perfectly, and now my Little Big Planet disc wont read on the XMB. it was working fine yesterday.”

That last one was taken from the official PS boards, I also read one about internet connectivity problems after installing. Can any of you confirm these problems on 3.41 after updating?
