You read that right, PS3 fans. Those with unbricked PS3s, anyway. Sony will be releasing FW 2.41 in mid-week, with (hopefully) none of the issues seen with the 2.40 FW.
According to customer support, firmware version 2.41, which should be clear of all errors, will out "midweek", although Sony is yet to make an official announcement to confirm that.
And what did we say last time? Yes, that's right, don't be the first one to upgrade your system. Wait to see what happens. You may just keep your PS3 safe.
