Sony Fixing PS3s Bricked by Recent Firmware Update on June 27th

By Gary Cutlack on at

The handful of PS3s that were rendered unusable by a dodgy official firmware upgrade should be functional again by the end of the week, thanks to a reworked software upgrade Sony will have ready for launch in a few days. The pulled 4.45 firmware crippled some PS3s by removing the XMB system interface. You'll soon be happy again if it bonked yours. [Sony via Techradar]
