Sony addresses the issues surrounding its Firmware 3.00 update following numerous complaints from users...
At the end of last week we ran a story about a possible glitch in Sony's Firmware 3.00 update for PS3 that left some gamers complaining about unresponsive DualShock 3 controllers after downloading the update.
Despite the lack of an official comment from Sony at the time and assertions from the company's customer care hotline that this was all news to them, Sony has now come out and stated that it is "looking into the matter".
"SCEA is aware of reports that PS3 owners are experiencing isolated issues with their PS3 system since installing the most recent system software update (v3.00)," said Patrick Seybold, SCEA's Senior Director of Corporate Communications and Social Media. "Rest assured that we are looking into the matter and will provide an update here as soon as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience, as it's our mission to deliver the best consumer experience on all PlayStation platforms."
Given Seybold's response, this certainly indicates that there's a lot more to these problems than a few disgruntled forum posters who don't know how to download an update properly. Nonetheless, discussion on the official PS3 boards has suggested that a possible reason for the malfunctioning DualShock 3 controllers is that they are counterfeited goods.
