Sony pulls 4.45 PS3 firmware update

Written by David Stellmack



Reports of boot failures once updated


Sony has pulled the 4.45 firmware update and has apologized for any inconvenience caused by the release of the latest firmware update. Sony is investigating why it is causing some consoles to be bricked after the update is applied.

Reports started to surface that some users could no longer boot their consoles once the 4.45 firmware update was applied. Sony claims that it is aware of the issue and caused the XMB not to display on a small number of systems.

The bigger issue is what those with bricked consoles are going to do and how they are going to get their systems up and running again. So far, Sony has not had anything to say on this front. We suspect that they will do something to help those with this problem, but so far they have not made any public announcement as to what this might be.
