It seems let again, Sony is getting a backlash of users upset with the latest forced update v3.42 that didn’t add a single new feature, but stopped the PS Jailbreak / PSGroove / psFreedom devices from working.
Majority of PS3 owners truly don’t even care about those “homebrew” devices, but Sony does and it seems that the rush of blocking the update may have caused legit PS3 owners a lot of headaches instead.
There is numerous reports of “Sound Problems”, they seem to be the biggest problem, with sound cutting in and out. — Also reports of games like COD:MW2, Battlefield 2: Bad Company, Madden 2011 in crashing or not even loading at times. — Of course with ever new firmware update, there is the series of reports of “Brick’s”, the PS3 just looping, or frozen forever after the update.
Time well tell soon if this might be the SECOND buggy firmware that Sony has released, like the last one v3.41 they ended up “putting their foot in their mouth” and finally releasing a silent new repack of the v3.41 firmware.
PS3 legit users are reporting that MW2 and BFBC2 are crashing the systems entirely. Sony won’t obviously admit they f*cked up because they could care less about it. They blocked the PS Jailbreak and that’s all they wanted. From a business stand point, they did what they had to do, but not testing the firmware properly is a major f*ck up.
