Sony: PS3 update to address v4.45 issues due next week Sony's PlayStation Europe twitter feed is promising another update to the console to address an issue with a recent pulled update that disabled a number of PS3 consoles.
Some unlucky PS3 owners who applied the recent 4.45 update found that their console now just hangs on start-up. When the issue started to get attention, Sony pulled the 4.45 update and began to investigate the issue.

Now, according to the PlayStation Europe twitter feed, Sony has identified the issue related to the 4.45 update, and is planning to release a new software update that resolves the issue on June 27.







An update on the issue was also posted to the PlayStation Community Forums.

As long as people can still get to the recovery menu (which they should) they can install the fixed update from there.

Cheers Andrew.

Now, if only they would speed up the bloody PS Store... updates ALL the time and as fast as a wet weekend. My old craptop is way faster.

will the update cause the video not to work in normal mode but work in safe mode ? all I get is a black screen with a few colored dots now. though the machine is about 3 or four years old it still worked.

could try a video settings reset? Hold the power button on from standby till it beeps twice. or just try and see if you can get into the recovery menu, as if that still works then you can install the next update when its fixec
