PSN and PS3 3.61 update problems?

Today Sony began rolling out a new PlayStation 3 firmware update and also turned the PSN back on in some areas, this update will be forced upon your PS3 when you turn your console on and Sony will be hoping that this goes smoothly, however this does not seem to be the case for everyone.

Now that millions of you have turned on your PS3s and received the update we wondered whether any of you came into difficulties installing it, we check out the comments on InEntertainment’s article and saw that lots of people’s PS3s froze during the procedure, did this happen to you?

Once you have installed update 3.61 you must change your password, you can only change your PSN account’s password on a PlayStation 3 which your account was active on previously, this measure has been put in place for extra security.

One thing to note is that just because you have installed the firmware update it does not mean that the PSN is fully functional in your area, chances are service will be restored in most regions withing the next few hours, but as you can imagine this is a huge procedure.
