PlayStation 3 users should take caution before upgrading their systems to the 4.45 version firmware, as “a small number of users” has reported that the update has affected their systems. Sony has since taken the update offline so users who avoided the update will not have to worry about dealing with the system update affecting their systems. Concerning those affected by the update, Sony has said “We kindly ask PS3 users to wait for further details. We will announce when ready.”
The update was meant to add trophy notification options and improved system stability, according to a tweet released before the update’s release. Instead, the update created a problem bringing up the home menu interface, leaving the user unable to do anything on their console. This stumble comes hot on the heels of their successful E3 showing, where they showed off their upcoming PlayStation 4, and a strong lineup of PlayStation 3 games coming later this year. Hopefully these problems will be taken care of quickly.
