    When I signed in this afternoon it didn't ask me to update, so they must of taken it down.

    I'm so happy that I can still play The Last Of Us, best game I've played in ages.

    Thanks to St1ckM4n my PS3 was spared. I would've definitely updated it if not for this thread lol.

    It could save your $300 console xD.

    The update was pulled apparently, before I posted this. Still, better safe than sorry! :)


    Also, I just happened to have upgraded my HDD to 750GB last week, ha!
