    The new firmware has bricked PS3s, more common with those that swapped/upgraded HHD but is known to brick stocked HHD too.

    I have a 250GB Super Slim Infamous/Uncharted bundle (from Black Friday 2012) and it updated fine.

    However, stay safe, DO NOT UPDATE!

    *Sigh* and after Sony managed to get the good wills of gamers again too.:redface2:

    Makes me glad I decided not to turn on my console tonight. Though I'm hearing reports that Sony pulled the update, so it should be okay to log back on.

    Really? I played a little this morning, and I was thinking about playing a little NBA 2K13 this evening too.

    Yes, Sony did pull it. 4.41 is now back on the site.

    I also have the Super Slim (the same bundle), and I updated fine. The only specific model I saw referenced in the forums to have problems is the original Slim model.

    does this means we can dowgrade into 4.41? how?, i was forced to update to 4.45 when i created a new PSN account for DL ing JP DLC's a week ago.

    but the PS3 is still fine these few days, i've used it a few days from that update playing Battride Wars and my friend have been playing it up to this day(old games like MK vs DC, Batonetta), no bricking yet, mine is a slim PS3(not super slim) with either 40 or 80 GB stock HDD, can't remember the exact size, but it was pretty small

    I believe Sony will put up a revision sometime this week?

    If you're PS3 is fine after updating to 4.45, it's fine. I have 4.45 and it's been fine so far for me.

    I had automatic update on, so i was pretty scared, fortunately, Sony pull it off before my console updated.
