PS3 Update Apocalypse

The news is all over the web, thanks to Kotaku and other PS3 sites- the much-awaited PS3 firmware update 2.40, which was released a couple of days ago, resulted in CHAOS. PS3’s of all make and build started getting problems which ranged from microphones cutting off to the consoles outrightly freezing at the wave screen. OUCH. Man, I am so glad I am not a stickler for updates. Sony reps have so far said that they’re working on fixing the problem, as well as addressing the problems of the users who have been adversely affected. But man… that sucks. No word yet on when the 2.40 update, with it’s in-game XMB interface and Trophies, will be re-released.

Lesson learned? Look before you leap.
