2.40 Did Not Bork My PS3
I was really happy that the 2.40 firmware update was live after midnight EST. I updated right away. I restarted, played some Hot Shots Golf, sent messages in-game (whoo hoo!) and then went to sleep.
I got up today and send other messages before I headed to work today. I have a launch 60 GB PS3. My system did not get bricked by the update that has since been pulled. So I don't know what to say, other than I sure as hell am glad it did not happen to me.
