Sony to release fixed PS3 firmware this week


Last week’s PS3 firmware update left some angry gamers in its wake as reports of jacked up consoles made their way around the internet shortly after Sony made version 2.40 of its PS3 software available for download last Wednesday. The company quickly pulled the problematic update and has now said that version 2.41 will be available “midweek,” according to CVG.

While most PS3 owners were able to download the 2.40 version just fine, some had trouble with their consoles locking up and coming up bricked after restarting.
