Sony re-releases latest PS3 firmware
Verson 2.41 posted
Sony has, as expected, officially released a tweaked version of its troubled PlayStation 3 firmware version 2.40.
Register Hardware reported on Monday that Sony’s consumer support division was rumoured to be readying the new release with a view to publishing it sometime during the middle of this week.
Sony opted to withdraw version 2.40 just hours after releasing the firmware update, following complaints from numerous gamers that the software was messing with their machines. One reader told us that the update failed halfway through its installation and then froze his PS3.
Hopefully, the latest firmware update – which is called version 2.41 – won’t cause any such problems. It’s available to download now.
"Microsoft have never attempted to "bury" any of the 360's problems.
that's pretty laughable. They want 18months pretending there were no problems with the 360...
"Microsoft has now told the BBC that "most people with an Xbox 360 have an outstanding experience, and there is no systemic issue". They say each incident is unique and is looked at on a case by case basis"
@Anonymous Coward.... i mean Mark who now has to be Anonymous because he's too ashamed of himself
Microsoft have never attempted to "bury" any of the 360's problems. You just can't get over anything can you?
Want to show us how you know the scale of the problem?
NeoGaf polls which are usually free of fanbois show 600:1 ratio of people not having any problems at all. Assuming that only a small percentage of people got the update before it was pulled, I would be suprised if the number of affected people is any more than a few thousand, at most.
Sony have already said you can send your PS3 back for free repair, I simply demonstated a method of saving you the hassle of that. In the unlilely event you had the problem, it's your choice what method you use..
At least Sony admit their problems, the firmware was pulled as soon as there was a hint of problems (aside from the usual Xbot noise), how long did Microsoft lie and try to bury the 360's problems? They are sill burying the fact that even the latest Xbox's are still faulty... If I had to trust either Sony or Microsoft, it would be Sony by a mile.
