Broken PlayStation 3 systems due to the recent 4.00 system update

18 replies 76 views Edited Dec 17, 2011

Who has a PlayStation 3 that has recently started not working recently due to the new system update 4.00? This is a place to discuss your story and for all of us to convince Sony that it’s their fault not ours. My system has never had a problem until this update. What about you? Maybe if they see all the stories they will take responsibility for a bug in their update that we had to download.

It's good to see a positive update thread. The "Update bricked my console" threads get old fast. My system has never had a problem since this update too. Neither system. Not one problem. They acdtually seem to load faster.

What system do you have? I have the original 60gb one. And what I meant to say earlier was that my system stopped working right after the update.

I have 2 PS3s, the original 60GB one and the newest 160GB Slim. I was able to update both of them to 4.00 without any issue.

I have 2 systems. An original 60g and a 120g slim. Both updated fine and are running great.

since the exact hour i updated to 4.00 ive been having freezing/data corruption issues

have done database restore, filesystem restore, reinstalled fw off a usb, even done a complete system restore

those all seem like only temp fixes,   extremely frustrating that sony doesnt acknowledge this

Sony denies that any update would cause any problems with the system. I would think that older systems should have other updates to avoid these problems and that we should have a choice to update them. We do sort of have a choice but then we are limited on what our systems were originally designed for.

the only choice we have is to say no to the update an if u say no then u cant play the game, i have a 120 gb and the only problem besides this was when they had that so called virus an shut down psn, but this problem is also affecting xbox as well, i actually believe the problem is somewhere in between the psn or the manufactuers all i ask is that its handled promptly, as the days go by there are more of my friends going thru these issues but noone knows why? someone does and they need to say something. the wierd thing is that my update is only 3.73 and my system is doing that, i just dont get it

If I were you, I would not update to 4.0 if you want to play PS3 games that you don't currently own.  I posted earlier this afternoon wondering why I haven't been able to play some brand new games.  I just realized, though, that the one thing that happened since I got Fifa 11 (which still works) on 12/25 and Uncharted 2/ Dead Rising 2 on 12/30 is that I think in that time I updated to system 4.0.  And no suprise that Sony would deny that an update would cause NEW problems because of course system updates are supposed to do the OPPOSITE of that!  Frustrating.

I agree this whole situation is very frustrating and unnessesary.
