Hi all,

Here is the latest on this issue:

We have identified the issue related to the PlayStation 3 software update (version 4.45) that impacted a small number of PS3 systems earlier this week. A new PS3 system software update is planned to be released on June 27 that resolves the issue. Thank you for your patience and understanding and we apologize for the inconvenience.

If there is any further updates between now and 6/27, we will drop them here.

We will also update on 6/27 when it is available, and steps on how to implement the solution.

Thank you – morgan haro / mochuuu, SCEA PSN Community Management Team, @morganharo

It’s good to know that they figured out what went wrong, but at the same time it’s not easy to understand how any issues could make it through QA testing.
