Sony pulls PS3 update 4.45 following reports of 'bricked' consoles

NEWS | ? Comments |

Author: Peter Grimm  

Recently, Sony released a new firmware update for the PlayStation 3, update 4.45. It was supposed to provide the system with trophy notification options and improved system stability.

Unfortunately, many have found that, instead of enhancing their consoles, the update locked them out of their PS3s, effectively “bricking” the machines (that is, rendering them functionless) in the process. Not everyone who updated suffered this problem, but it was pretty widespread.

In light of this development, Sony was quick to pull the 4.45 update before it could cause more trouble. “We're aware of reports that the recent PS3 update (4.45) has caused. We have temporarily taken 4.45 offline and are investigating,” the company said on the official European PlayStation Twitter account.

As for when the update will return, free from any system-breaking bugs, “We will announce when the system update is available for download as soon as possible and we apologise for the inconvenience.”

Our condolences to everyone whose PS3 was bricked by the update.
