Same problems here. PS3 slim worked 100% flawlessly since bought less than 1 year ago. Always clean, never dusty. No misuse or damage. 4.31 update installs...can no longer play disc games. Can listen to CDs (whoopdeedoo) , watch DVDs and play downloaded games. No Borderlands 1 or 2, no Skyrim, no Bioshock, Fallout, nothing. So, after the "update" I have a Netflix player. This is bull. 5 minutes after the 4.31 update, I can no longer play ANY disc game other than Sacred Angel 2. So no, it is NOT the laser eye.
Oddly enough, the SOLE purpose of the dang 4,31 update was to FIX problems that some people had with the 4.30 update freezing games. LOL....can I go back to 4.30 or can you make a dang 4.32 update that fixes EVERYONE's disc problems? PLEASE. Enough already ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGHHHH!!!!!
I thought maybe...just maybe I had a dirty lens. Then I looked online and read the 500 or so complaints of the same problem all over the net in the PAST FEW DAYS. So, no...SONY it is NOT MY MACHINE as you guys are so quick to say. Please fix this by tomorrow, thanks. You have plenty of resources and I am sure you have heard of this by now. If I cant play Borderlands 2 I still have time to take it back for a refund and by a **bleep** PSN card so I can at least play a downloaded game. Unless 4.32 crashes the HD. Geeeezzzz....
I used to be a BIG Sony fan. Thier products used to be really good. But this update mess is ridiculous .
The've really lost it.
So I updated to 4.31 and then SOLD my PS3. I hope its working for the guy who bought it!
A friend is making me a Bluray XP based media PC. Yeah that's right, it will do everything PS3 can do AND MORE!. (No more machine killing updates!! ) Plus Hulu , Netflix , Youtube and a web browser that actually works!
Well this update messed my ps3 up. The system software cannot be run correctly. Press the ps button to try to restart the system is all that shows up.
If the system cannot be restarted,you must reinstall the software. Connect storage media that contains update data of version 4.3 or later, and the press the Start and Select buttons at same time.
