DO NOT DOWNLOAD THE NEW PS3 UPDATE

Recommended Posts

redx165
I give this thread a  cookie.gif  he is really sincere on helping people.

It's not like Sony is not going to do crap about it, the most this will do is save your console (not all consoles are affected by it by the way, it's mostly the old ass ones) for another few days or so until there's a fix patch

My console wasn't affect and it is about 5 3/4 years old.

Big thankyou to OP for raising this issue.

 

It has every bit to do with V as does anything... how can we even play it without a working console? This is the first I've heard of it and I wouldn't have known otherwise. If it wasn't for the OP creating this topic in the V section, I'd probably have a bricked PS3 right now and nothing to play GTAV on.

 

cookie.gif  cookie.gif  cookie.gif

So you really believe that if you were affected, there wouldn't be a fix for it from now until SEPTEMBER?

Hardly a logical argument against it.. no one in there right mind would want there console stuffed up even if a fix was released a month later.. lol.

What does Sony releasing a patch fix have to do with how much money you have?

 

It's as simple as being patient and letting them do their job, not crying wondering when to buy a new console

If you had the option of it not happening I'm sure you'd rather take it..

 

Listen, keep on arguing bro, the more you post and the more I respond to you means the more people that log in at randoms times get to see this and perhaps save there console, I'm very happy with this said agreement.

Are you a f*cking braindead retard. I'd rather wait 3-4 days for them to work their sh*t out, keep playing games on a healthy console, than to brick my console completely..... and if it doesn't boot up again like many are reporting, how the hell is it meant to turn on to download a fix? suicidal.gif

 

Also, the money issue, why would I buy a brand new PS3 when the PS4 is just around the corner? I can think of better ways to spend $300 or whatever they cost these days, than on a console I already own. It's not that I can't afford a new console - it's just a waste of money. Just think next time.

 

Here's a thought: maybe they did this on purpose to brick all our ps3's so we'll have to buy a ps4 at launch. ph34r.gif

How do you install updates on a console that won't boot.

It is interesting. I mean, one can imagine the thought process behind someone whose PS3 gets bricked, "Why bother getting another PS3 when I can just get a PS4 at around the same time I'd be able to afford one?" And there's someone who was basically forced to get a PS4. And planned obsolescence is a common tactic of hardware developers.

 

Just entertaining the idea, is all.

What does this have to do with GTA V?

Please read the actual post before commenting.

I did, and it has nothing to do with GTA V.

Give it a rest you jerk... this forum has high traffic, if he posted elsehwhere it wouldn't get seen!

 

You are the type of person that when the goverment is rounding the people up, you will be taking it upon yourself to point out the people trying to save themselves and escape.

 

Dont like it? Move on, the fact you came back and replied to him insted of seeing it for what it is, is your problem, no oneelse.. baaaa sheep anuj_cop.gif

Very nice of the O.P! I'm an Xbox user, but I would want to be informed if there was any potential bricking of my console, and as many are saying, how can you update your console with a patch, when it won't even load up? This is very relavent to GTA V as, id expect people would like a console to actually play on come September 17th.... And before anyone says oh there will be a patch by September, how? When the f*cking console won't even load up?!?!

Same was said for PCs back then and it became possible, why wouldn't they find a way to do it on consoles?

I know in Unicorn land Sony MUST do somthing becuase we have rights, and they will send a small sony branded umpa-lumpa round to fix it... but we live here on earth... unless you brought your fat ps3 in the last 2 years or w/e the warrenty period is (which i doubt anyone did...), you aren't going to get much help...

This isn't a quick fix by all means. There are over 100 million registered PSN users in the world, this will last weeks, people will not see this and be affected, by no means is there a quick fix to the situation, grow up.
