Sony PS3 update bricks consoles

The latest PlayStation 3 update released by Sony is causing a barrage of complaints from users.

The latest PlayStation 3 update released by Sony is causing a barrage of complaints from users.

The 3.21 firmware upgrade, which amongst other things removes the "Install Other OS" feature, seems to be bricking some older consoles. Other users complain that the update doesn't complete properly, that certain controllers no longer work, that Internet connectivity is slowed down to a snail's pace, HDMI not working at some resolutions, and inability to connect to the PlayStation Network.

My advice, if you can avoid this update, do so.
