    They had a problem with the leap year thing, which lasted 24 hours.
    But that wasn't down to an update, just a bug in the clock.

    Not updating either of mine (yet) as I want to keep the Other OS feature . The reason I bought mine.

    There is no 100% guarantee the update will work on every ps3. Some will break. You just have to hope Sony will fix it if it breaks whilst updating. Cos the Terms and conditions of updating tell you that you are accepting full responsibility and that the risk is yours and that Sony will not be held responsible if something goes wrong.

    Wouldn't bother updating tbh. They say its an update, but it actually removes a feature. If anything, its a downgrade.

    mines still going ok

    updated no problems

    Mine blew up the tv when i updated... knocked out most of the local power grid as well :whistling:





    Just kidding... its fine. Sony only done it so no one could exploit the other os option and find a way to crack the system.

    [FONT=Arial]Updated 3.21...no problems :thumbsup: 60GB Phat. [/FONT]

    If you don't update it, then you won't be able to play games online etc.
    Why brick your PS3?

    Edit: My PS3 has just turned nuclear and i have to run now as the fallout will kill me and the whole of my county
