I just posted the article Sony yanks latest PS3 firmware.

Sony has had to pull its firmware 2.40 upgrade for the PS3 less than an hour after release after complaints that it was turning the consoles into expensive bricks.
Complaints flooded in…

“Sony claims that the faulty upgrade only hurt a small number of users.” Guess that makes it okay.

The problem could be cured by formatting the hard drive. Well given the choice of Formatting the Hard Drive,or RROD on the XBOX…Hmmm I know which one i’ll take.

“Sony claims that the faulty upgrade only hurt a small number of users.” In other news later this month: Sony reports sales of PS3 spike over previous month!!! CEO claims amidst tears of joy streaming down his cheeks: “Bluray is finally being accepted and therefore, we promise to continue to support our customers with timely, downloadable upgrades” :+

Happy Independence Day to all you Americans…Enjoy!!! Don’t worry i’ll be back to do battle with the SONY Haters on CDFREAKS.

Yeah, erm - problem is you don’t actually do battle with ‘Sony haters’. All you do is come in here and drop a few pointless comments about nothing in particular. Not once have I EVER seen a decent counter-argument or constructive comment from you.

Gee I wonder if it had anything to do with DRM crap in the firmware upgrade, as we have seen in the past similar problems caused by DRM . Must of worked good as you cant copy anything with a useless expensive brick And that is why I will not buy ANYTHING that restricts my rights with what I buy just so some greedy company can make extra profits. Once again Sony give their victims, oops sorry customers more problems.

@ Vic_M “All you do is come in here and drop a few pointless comments about nothing in particular. Not once have I EVER seen a decent counter-argument or constructive comment from you.” I’m glad is wasn’t just me who thought that. You just made my day. @ Consumer “And that is why I will not buy ANYTHING that restricts my rights” Everyone should have this attitude. Vote with your wallet.
