It has been 3 days and the firmware 4.30 is not officially listed on the Playstation site.

What is going on here? I have not updated to this firmware 4.30 yet but hear alot of problems after the update from many sources. It looks as this update is to damage many old PS3 models to push sales for the upcoming PS3 CECH 4001B 500GB model coming on October 30, 2012. Ironically the Playstation website should officially show firmware 4.30 but continues to show firmware 4.25. This concludes even Sony knows there is a problem with this firmware but refuses admit it by quietly keeping the firmware at 4.25 on its website.

This only hurts you if your upgrading your HDD and the firmware isn't available to download for your new HDD to be recogonized. If you have a good internet connection, there's nothing else wrong. Because all you have to do is have your PS3 connected to the internet and just go to system update in order to well.....update. So just update on the system, that's all.

 what are you talking about? It says 4.30 on the bottom of this very page. There are always complaints after new firmware has been released. I have an older "phat" system and it updated fine.

 

 

Why am I even replying to an obvious Flaming Spamming Troll?
