Sony PS3 3.61 Update, US PSN Back Up Not Online For UK

Good morning PS3 gamers, those that decided to stick by Sony that is, today is May 15 and a fine day for Playing on the PlayStation Network. We can confirm that the Sony PS3 3.61 update is live for download, and once you have installed the new firmware you can login to the PSN, as it’s back up online.

That sounds great a first, but not if you’re in the UK or other regions. Nearly all states in the US are online, but we’re hearing that the UK and other parts of the world have to wait behind the United States roll out. Did you not expect this?

Let us know in the comments if you run into any problems downloading the new PS3 firmware, or signing into the PSN. In the last few moments a few emails have come to us from UK users, who state that they are getting PSN errors when trying to sign in. As Sony always says, be patient.

Lets hope we all get gaming today, have fun everyone.

the only reason the yanks went online first is because they are crap at online gaming and need all the practice they can get b4 we beat there asses as usual.
