PlayStation 3 Update Will Fix Bricked Systems

PlayStation 3
Sony

If you were unfortunate enough to have your PlayStation 3 rendered useless after last week’s update, today’s firmware fix will be just what the doctor ordered.

Last week’s firmware update caused problems for some PlayStation 3 users, leaving their consoles bricked and useless. Now Sony has released firmware update 4.46 in order to address the issue.

Users have to follow a three-step process in order to fix their systems. Players will have to manually download the system software onto a USB flash drive with at least 168MB of free space, activate Safe Mode and then manually update their PlayStation 3 software.

More detailed instructions can be found here on the PlayStation Support site. Let us know if you’ve had any problems and, if so, whether or not this update fixed everything for you.
