Earlier today we gave you the good news that the PlayStation Network had started to come back online in certain regions. The US is all up and running but at the time of writing users in parts of Europe including the UK are still waiting. Now that PSN is back online we are wondering if you have had problems with PS3 3.61 update.
When you first try and sign in to the PlayStation Network you will have to update the systems firmware. But we have had a couple of emails from our readers saying they have had some problems downloading the software.
The firmware update is mandatory and will have to be installed if you want to use the PSN service when it is available in your region. If you have never downloaded any content on the system, you will receive an email after you first try and sign in. Users will be given a link so you can reset your password, once this has been done you will be able to access your account using the new password.
This will be good news for the millions of PS3 owners wanting to get their fix of some online gaming. Have you had any problems downloading the 3.61 firmware update?
