Sony Bring on v2.43 Firmware quickly as 2.42 is all Messed Up

Sponsored Links
334w ago - Numerous amounts of gamers are reportedly requesting to Sony that they release the new PS3 firmware ASAP as v2.42 is causing them loads of issues. The reported issues range from no discs being read to problems of going online.

To quote: Personally our PS3 is just fine but then we have not had much time with it since the latest firmware. This is what some gamers have reported to PR:

Well this is totally Effed Up!!! My son decided that it would be a good idea to update the PS3 and he did 2 nights ago without me knowing it. Well now ANYTHING BLURAY does NOT play. NOTHING!!! Doesn't even recognize the DAMN Disc!!! Is there anything I can do???

Installed this newest update and now nothing works, can not read disks at all. We have done the system restore, etc. now have to wait while it gets shipped to Sony to fix it.

Very upsetting, fairly new PS3 (5 months) in excellent condition and was working perfectly prior to update. Extremely frustrating.

But for a machine going from an old firmware (1.80, for example) up to 2.42.. that's when I'd expect BD firmware to be flashed with a new version. Which could potentially break.

well i updated from 2.30 to 2.35 and then got blue ray probs..

i think every update contains full firmware so you can update from 1.50 to 2.35 without a prob. it would be nice if sony could let user choose whether update all the files in file system or just replace the old packages like they are doing now XD
