Sony Releases Firmware 4.46; Fixes Bricked PS3 Consoles

Sony Releases Firmware 4.46; Fixes Bricked PS3 Consoles

Almost immediately after Sony released firmware update 4.45 last week many gamers began posting on the companies forums reporting that the latest update had bricked their consoles and rendered them useless in the process. This led to Sony removing the update and thus begin work on update 4.46 to deliver the same improvements as 4.45 but without the whole ‘rendering consoles useless’ error.

This update is now available to download and Sony have also uploaded a step-by-step guide to inform PS3 users whose consoles were brick to inform them how to manually update the console in safe mode. This guide can be accessed here: https://support.us.playstation.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4984
