Firmware Updates Crash Consoles
In what is becoming a common occurrence, some gaming consoles are breaking down when getting firmware upgrades
A class action lawsuit is pending against Sony in Florida, with one John Kennedy being the main plaintiff. The problem? Software updates on the PS3 causing the console to have hardware failure.
Interestingly, the Wii update was issued to disable illegally downloaded games that work on the console, so they might have gone a step too far. Where this will end up is anybody’s guess, but if Kennedy can prove that the cause of the problems are the updates, then Sony will probably have to fork out even more money for an already unprofitable console. Not to mention losing a lot of good will amongst the PS3 community.
