Did you install the latest PlayStation 3 firmware? I hope not.
Sony’s pulled firmware 4.45, based on reports from users finding themselves with a bricked console after patching.
“Hi guys, we're aware of reports that the recent PS3 update (4.45) has caused,” reads a tweet from PlayStation Europe. “We have temporarily taken 4.45 offline and are investigating.”
There has been no active communication from the North American arm of PlayStation just yet.
Sony has not issued recommendations to users with firmware 4.45 already installed, and what might be done to remedy the situation.
