PS3 Firmware 3.21 Locks Out More Features Beyond OtherOS?

Sponsored Links
246w ago - Update: Sony has now told [Register or Login to view links] that despite widespread reports they have seen no evidence of damage caused by the PS3 Firmware 3.21 update.

Sony has already upset some users by removing the "Install OtherOS" with its PS3 Firmware 3.21 update, and based on reports from the official [Register or Login to view links] a sizable number of PS3 users have run into issues since updating to PlayStation 3 Firmware version 3.21 as well.

Problems after installing the update range from folks not being able to log into PSN or load a disc after the update to users not being able to turn on their PS3 at all - some have even reported freezing during the update process.

Of course, there's also lots of users that have updated without any issues whatsoever, and the problems don't seem to have yet drawn an official response from Sony.

Let us know how things worked out for you in the comments below.

It' because the Default System option is simply linked to the Other OS - there is no need for it anymore, it was used to select WHICH os will PS3 boot to - either PS3 Game OS (XMB) or Linux and as they've taken away access to Linux there is no point in having such selection anymore. So they're not delteing any "system" - JUST the option

And - in regards to (any) update to PS3 - it's ALWAYS potential risk to your console to do so as with each update there is a bunch of users having their consoles simply killed or screwed up during the process That's why the mandatory updates PUSHED at us by Sony are BAD!
