Apparently there's a problem with a new patch for the PS3. Posting this here for the benefit of those with a PS3 so as to save some headaches.

http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-3-Support/Problem-after-update-to-4-45/td-p/40712247

Apparently the new patch is actually bricking some people's PS3s.

So if you get a prompt to DL patch 4.45 you might not want to let your PS3 do the upgrade.

Just did this update. Currently no problems. Not using a Slim model if that says anything. Noticed the first comment said Slim as well as a few other times after that, so maybe...

EDIT: Seeing this relate to a lot, and I mean a lot of SLIM owners, as well as a few of the backwards compatible models.

First appearances seem to indicate that it's hitting people who've upgraded their HDD's.

I just finished updating the Launch day PS3 and the Slim minutes before seeing the warning hitting Polygon/Kotaku, both PS3s had no issues running afterward.

Good luck folks!

From what I'm seeing it is only the people who have a 500GB HD or larger... and I have a 500GB HD Smiley: cry

Edit: Also hitting people with the Slims as well as the older Fatties

Just an update, they have the bad patch down and are supposed to release a non-bricking patch sometime tomorrow.

Funny this should happen right after Sony goes through bashing Microsoft for their DRM. I really hope Sony learns it's lesson soon before they lose more customers.

SE was the reason I bought my first playstation, and to be honest, SE is the only reason I still have a Playstation (3)... Other than Tomb Raider I haven't bought a game for the PS3 in nearly 2 years. Yeah, my wife had to get Skyrim, and Assassin's Creed, but she now uses it more than I do... And even she is getting tired of their crap.

If it wasn't for their statements at E3, and the fact that 14 was going to the PS4, I had zero interest in them, and with this... Yeah, still don't trust a company that keeps punishing their customers because they don't like how people use the stuff they sell. Yeah, piracy is a problem. Deal with it without constantly causing me grief.

I concur, I turned on my ps3 and there was no message to update. I'm watching things on my usb, not going to try to enter the game.

I wonder if you could pull the hard drive and just reformat it. I know you'd lose all the data and start over, but at least your PS3 would be running again.

How do we get beta keys? I entered my FFXIII PS3 beta code on my square enix account, but never received anything other than a PC beta invite/code. How can I test on Ps3?

So per Sony: We don't know what happened, when it will be fixed, nor will you be able to use your PS3 until we fix it. Infuriating

I'm so glad I didn't dl the patch.

It certainly won't live as long as the PS2 but I'd say it might be a little too early to start talking the demise of the PS3.

I am 100% sure they started doing this for the 60GB PS3 because they wanted to take the backwards compatible models off the market. There is no reason they can't make a system breaking bug and say its something else. Then they will say, we can fix it for X dollars or we can credit you X dollars toward a new system.

Evil!

Edit: Added:

My problem is, what about the collectors? I have games on Hard Disc that I want to play when I'm 60... that's 30years from now. If they break my system, how will I go retro? I love playing PS1 games, N64, Dreamcast games. You can't beat some of those, I'm looking at you Banjo-Kazooie. If the systems break how will I get my weekly dose of nostalgia?

PC emulators. That's probably you're best bet unfortunately. Also, it seems like the newer the system, the less time before it dies. I had a working nintendo for 20 years. I had a working super nintendo for about 12. My xbox 360 lasted me about 5... it's like they are building them to break quickly now so you have to keep upgrading. Smiley: oyvey

While I wouldn't put it past companies to do things like that to make you buy the next new offering, I think the lesser lifespan is just from the fact that there are more ways for consoles these days to break.

I've been very fortunate. I still have a working nintendo and SNES from my childhood. My son is still using my launch xbox 360 and I have never had a red ring of death. Although, for the past few months, you do have to sweet talk the 360 to open it's tray so you can switch out games.

Well I suppose you're lucky that there aren't any classics on the PS3 then. I have a feeling the systems older than that will still be working just fine by then, however.

Well played my first beta of this game last week and loved it except for the PS3 targeting. Then over this week I found in the Character Configuration, Control Setting, Filters, I could filter our specific targeting schemes depending on my L1+ control. Well tried it out and now love this game 100%.

I plan on messing around with this as well. Glad to hear you were able to get it figured out.
