    If you have God of War Ascension it forces you to update to 4.41 if you want the platinum.

    Note that this update may kill some USB adaptors.

    4.40 adds support for USB-based NFC reader devices (whatever they are...) but in the process, my 2 USB port > 5 USB port expansion bar has been disabled. It might have something to do with the 2 PS3 USB ports being used by the one device that knocks it over.

    No biggie...I haven't updated to 4.41 yet, that may correct the issue.

    There is no 4.41? PlayStation 3 system software - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Updated to OFW v4.40, there was no presence of 4.41.

    I wasn't able to sign onto PSN after updating though, so fair warning to anyone else thinking about updating.

    Oh. Makes me wonder if my 7 port hub still works. Gonna check it now...

    Edit: It still works. Did you switch ports? My friends PS3 has a dead USB port...

    Mine uses both PS3 ports for the one device (it acts as a cover / replacement for the default ports), which I think is the problem. It looks like this -



    I have other hubs that use only one port and they're AOK when connected direct to a PS3 port instead of via the 5 port expansion.

    Oh I see. That sucks. That thing is pretty cool looking though. Looks like it would blend in naturally with the PS3. I just have my hub kinda hidden behind the PS3...

    I've had nothing but problems since downloading 4.40. Keep getting dropped from psn and "text only" chat room. Actually froze my system up a minute ago. I had to do a hard reset. Thank you Sony, basterds

    the update v4.41 may be only available to people who are playing GoW:A. it may not be a "legit" update in terms of everyone needs it. so maybe v4.41 is a system patch for GoW:A instead of a game data patch.

    It seems OFW v4.40 was some type of big-brother update. They're watching you...
