269w ago - It's now been over two weeks since Sony released PS3 Firmware 3.10, however, according to several reports this weekend including Loot-Ninja.com (linked above) and the official [Register or Login to view links] it introduced a nasty Bluetooth controller sync issue.

Apparently many gamers who updated to PS3 Firmware 3.10 now have to use their PS3 controllers connected with a USB cable to play games, however, most reports are isolated to new PS3 Slim console although some early PS3 owners are also having issues it seems.

To quote: "Yesterday I ran into a troubling issue with my PS3 Slim where none of my three DualShock 3 controllers sync to my console via the wireless Bluetooth standard. Whenever I press the PlayStation button, all I get is four flashing lights as the controllers make a valiant attempt to sync with the PS3, but fail miserably.

After going through the troubleshooting steps provided by Sony, I did what any frustrated gamer would do: I searched Google. Turns out, there are quite a few people experiencing the exact same issue, some of which are having trouble with Bluetooth headsets and Blu-Ray remotes as well."

Has anyone here experienced this Bluetooth Controller sync issue since updating to PS3 Firmware 3.10? Feel free to comment below!
