With Sony’s recent PS3 firmware update (version 4.45) giving many of its users trouble, Sony have announced a new update due June 27th to fix the problem.

The following announcement, made on Sony’s forums today by Morgan Haro from the PSN Community Management Team, sought to offer some promise of resolution to the problem:

Hi all,

Here is the latest on this issue:

We have identified the issue related to the PlayStation 3 software update (version 4.45) that impacted a small number of PS3 systems earlier this week. A new PS3 system software update is planned to be released on June 27 that resolves the issue. Thank you for your patience and understanding and we apologize for the inconvenience.

If there is any further updates between now and 6/27, we will drop them here.

We will also update on 6/27 when it is available, and steps on how to implement the solution.

Thank you

Only a week later Sony. Better late than never, eh? We’re waiting on Microsoft’s cheeky announcement that Xbox Live is working just fine.
