    It seems the ongoing Firmware 2.40 crisis ravages on in the PSN community. My friend online lost his PS3 to this rouge bug. Engadget, and many other websites are getting large reports of this rouge bug. Sony has pulled the firmware as of around noon today...

    Now here's my problem:

    After downloading firmware 2.40 on my PS3, I noticed that I was randomly getting signed off of PSN. This often happened while playing online with friends...

    I also noticed the in game XMB is quite laggy. It looks like it's running at 3 FPS :/

    I also noticed that the XMB takes quite some time to load up ANYTHING, music, pictures, trophies, friends list, etc...

    does anyone know why this is happening to me? My PS3 isn't bricked or anything serious like that...

    it's just some features like the XMB are quite laggy...

    Any ideas guys?

    I honestly feel that all these problems are happening to everyone, and that my PS3 isn't a lone soul...


    (NOTE: If anyone comes in here and posts "pro-Xbox 360" BS, I will report them, I'm fed up with that kind of crap)

    it's slow to load, and also quite laggy (low FPS)

    very strange though...

    I've also known Sony for reliable downloads

    I have the same problems I'm getting randomly signed out, it's so annoying.

    I haven't got randomly signed out yet, and the in-game XMB runs at full speed for me, at least in CoD4. I tried it in Warhawk, and the framerate was a little lower, nothing drastic however. I guess I got lucky.

    That's unfortunate, my update went smooth.
