It might not be affecting most people, I'm not sure of the facts yet, but I'll play it safe.For those stuck with the faulty PS3 update Tomorrow a patch should come out to fix this.The System update is stored inside the PS3 NAND Chip This update ensures new game's run smoothly, and also allowing Sony control to allow only their products to run on your console.Its like Sony remotely controlling your legally owned console telling you what you can do with it, (Total bull shit we believe, you own your PS3 you should be allowed to do what you want with it ), but the Australian courts have ruled otherwise Banning the Jailbreak, Anyway these system update are done either via USB stick, a new game that's inserted into the console, or via the INTERNET when you connect to the PSN network.For more Play Station 3 reviews and information please click here.If your PS3 system software version is 4.55 (or later), you do not need to perform this update.Sony has said they are working to fix the error, “We hope to resolve this problem within the next 24 hours.” Update: Several sites are reporting that the error seems to have fixed itself and games are working again.

Sony has come out to acknowledge the issues with this firmware update. Downloaded the update probably 4 hours ago, have used Netflix, a disc based game, and a PS downloaded game with no problems. Would have sucked to have my system automatically update and screw up.All you need to do is download it to your USB drive and power up the PS3 in safe mode and install update from USB. To update your PS3 you will either need an internet connection to your PS3 or access to a computer with internet and a USB memory stick.Continue to hold the Power button and after about another 5 seconds you will hear a third beep and the system will power off (Power light is red).Step 3: Touch and hold the Power button, you will hear the first beep, again for the PLAYSTATION 3 to power on.
