There's a new 4.45 update for Sony's last-gen console that's apparently bricking PS3s left, right and centre. Some updaters have ended up with their consoles stuck on the boot-up ribbon screen, with no hope of getting out of it. Considering the update barely does anything, this is one I'd stay clear of for a bit. Let Sony iron out all the bugs first. [PlayStation Community via Kotaku]
Update: Sony's pulled the update for now, so you're safe if you haven't hit the install button yet.
