    Anyone on here with a Slim PS3 had any issues with the new firmware??

    After reading some bad forum stories 'round the interwebz, I'm getting a bit paranoid about updating to this new one.

    For the record, I've had no problems with any previous updates, including the most recent 3.21 update. (I have a 250GB Slim)

    I updated with 0 problem. Only thing it did was ask me to confirm my display settings and test my TV to see if it supported 3D. And I have an old ass PS3.

    When did this come out? I've been playing my PS2 the last couple of weeks, but whatever the newest one was a couple of weeks back was working OK for me.

    What are the alleged issues? I've got a slim, though like I say, I'm all about Star Ocean 3 this last fortnight.

    Issues like game freezes (mostly Dragon Age), controllers not connecting wire-lessly, and Blu-Ray drives refusing to read discs.

    Whenever there's an update, I always wonder how often it has anything to do with coincidence when it allegedly "bricks" people's consoles.

    I kinda miss my PSN right now. Since I haven't updated to 3.30 yet, it won't connect.

    I'm leaning that way...

    I have a Slim and haven't had any issues, but also haven't played much since updating.

    Then again, a Sony firmware update stopped the drive on my original 40gb fat PS3 from reading discs last year. At the time I thought it was just coincidence. Now I'm convinced it was something in the update. It seems like every time they push a new firmware the disc issue pops up.

    Well, I bit the bullet last night and updated to 3.30.

    Played Nier for about two hours, used the internet browser a bit and played a torrented anime with no issues whatsoever.

    Whew.:thumb
