It seems Sony's having some issues with firmware updates lately. Problems from not being able to read the disc to Call of Duty 4
issues have creeped up for some folks as discussed in the Sony message boards
. Personally, I haven't had any problems with the last few updates so I consider myself one of the lucky ones. I've been able to watch movies and play games online but I wouldn't rule out a quick fix coming from Sony for this one if more people start voicing their issues with the update.
