Well apparently, John Kennedy thinks so, lodging a class-action lawsuit against Sony for their 3.0 firmware update. Accusing Sony of breaching implied warranty and performing an act of negligence, he argues that thousands of PS3 owners have had their PS3′s bricked after the update.
Now while the update was fairly lacklustre and did cause a few problems such as games freezing and controllers not working, I don’t believe I’ve heard many complaints of the firmware bricking people’s PS3′s. Additionally, with Sony offering a firmware update to fix the few problems, I don’t think the update really warrants a class-action lawsuit.
What do you guys think? Have you heard of anyone’s PS3 being bricked from the firmware 3.0 update and do you believe its a serious problem, or do you think that John Kennedy is just an isolated case and this lawsuit is just an over-reaction to the $150 repair fee?
