Should we be surprised? It's some snafu or another every three weeks. My PS3's disc drive died thanks to FW update 2.40 and then went the warranty. Am I supposed to shell out $299 or cross my fingers for 24 hours?

I read about this on another site last night. I hope they get it figured out quickly for those that game alot.

Seems like there's been a few issues with older models here recently. I have only turned mine on one or two times since fw 3.0 came out(which I have yet to update to) and that was to watch a cpl of Disney movies.

I have an older 40 GB, but don't play videogames all that much, so it really doesn't matter to me.

I cleared my hard drive about a week ago, thinking that the latest firmware upgrade was causing my ps3 to send no signal. It turned out to be my Onkyo 606 that was causing the problem. So, I have nothing left to erase! I hope blu ray movie playback on the ps3 is not in danger like Sony says, because my S350 is now telling me that BD discs are unknown. I'm striking out lately with electronics.

Are you guys ever on time with news? The whole thing is blowing over now and PS3s are slowly getting back on line as I type.

Where was this news yesterday when it was actually news?

I just got some BDs from amazon and fired up my PS3 to check them. Everything worked as expected.

P.S. What's a trophy?

The issue should be fixed by now for those who are not aware. Also, the issue did not affect BD playback as far as I could tell

A little overly dramatic with the headline and suprisingly slow with the story huh guys?
