I ONLY POST EVERYTHING, it's understood that the update only affected a limited amount of units....that's doesn't make it right. For a company that is basically struggling, they should try to keep ALL of it's consumer base satisfied. It's sad that they would crash alot of the older models, in order to sell more. It's also wrong. Although apparently there were enough problems that they wanted data collected on the issue. DO NOT make an update mandatory, if it's going to crash ANY units.

this is where you decide whether you agree or do not agree to the term and conditions. you accepted it.
they do not put all those fancy letters and mediatory screens with legal jargon in every update for no reason.
updates will always be mandatory if you want to use closed platforms, the ensure every user is on the same versions. without it it would just be nothing but technical issues, unnecessary confusion, unneeded technical assistance and hacks for the games themselves galore.

Yeah, my Sony VCR from 15 years ago is STILL working, while my 1 1/2 year old PS3 has gone completely dead just a week after this "update".
To add salt to the wound, the safe mode tips aren't working, and as for help from Sony? It's non-existent. People telling me I need to buy a new PS3, send it in with $$$ for repair, or that their updates work just fine... this has never happened to them.
Okay, sure. Fine. Life's great for all of those guys.
As for me,
I WILL NOT BUY ANOTHER SONY PRODUCT AGAIN.

As I said before. I have been a loyal Playstation user since number one. But my family such as my Grandmother has always went with Sony products for reliability and satisfaction. To not honor your products faults now will defiantly mean not seeing the near future of gaming or any kind of entertainment. Even thou the action Sony is taking is legal. Does not mean it is right. Word of mouth is why Sony got so big and more than likely be why it falls. Remember the Xbox repaired many of their defaults with no cost to the customer warranty or not. Because they owned up to their messup they have a very loyal fallowing. Does Micro make televisions stereos. Maybe they should. The CEO of Sony is Jake Trenton or is it Jake Thefton?
