Don’t Update That PS3!


Seems the recent 4.45 update that went live today for the PS3 has been bricking systems, according to a lot of gamers on the Playstation forums, as Kotaku points out.

Play it safe; don’t update tonight. It seems the update goes accordingly, then many people have been complaining that the system locks up right after the orchestral boot up and stays stuck in the “ribbon” screen, right before the XMB shows up. Others are reporting actual bricked systems. So, yeah. PS3 update 4.45 seems to be deadly. Stay away.

Besides, can’t be that important. We’re all playing our single player portions of The Last of Us anyway. You don’t need to be online, right?
