Yep, looks like it's been proven.
After 'limited' issues from PS3 owners, PSN Director of Corporate Communications and Social Media Patrick Seybold has stated on Playstation.blog that Sony has decided to 'temporarily' take down its latest 2.40 firmware update. Here's Seybold's entry:
"As has been reported on many gaming blogs and websites, we have temporarily taken Firmware v2.40 offline. We’ve received a limited number of calls from consumers experiencing an issue with installing the system software update on their PS3. While our consumer services department has seen a low volume of calls on this topic, we are committed to providing the PS3 community with XMB access features delivered in the v2.40 update. We are working diligently to isolate the problem for those few consumers and to identify a solution before we put the firmware back up."
Some users have already loaded the firmware before it was pulled yesterday and responses have been mixed. Others say that it works fine, while others have complained that it has spawned many issues such as some games not loading correctly. Hopefully, this will be taken care of soon enough.
But how about you? How's your PS3 doing?
