TTAM #2: PS3 Firmware Updates

It is not so much that the firmware updates annoy me, but the loborious task of installing the update.

When a new update is available, you also cannot access the PSN Store, or get online for anything. I just want to check out the latest game on the store, but first I have to install a .02 upgrade to my system.

These are the steps:

Step 1: Download the software update.
Step 2: Reboot when prompted.
Step 3: Connect controller via USB
Step 4: Cycle through a bunch of screens, select Accept, cycle through some more screens, hit X to start the install. Once complete, the system automatically reboots.

My main problem is having to connect the controller via USB. Why? Do you realize how annoying that is?

In contrast, when there is a Dashboard update for the Xbox 360, that goes like this:

Step 1: You are prompted to update the Dashboard once you power on the 360.
Step 2: Press A. Thats it, you are done. Once completed, the 360 reboots automatically. And you do not need to connect the controller through USB.

Do you see the difference?
