Sony pulls PlayStation 3 software update

Sony has been forced to withdraw the anticipated 2.4 PS3 firmware just a few hours after the update became available, because the new code has apparently been playing havoc with consoles.

Mine is broken, waiting for a courier to swap it over. They've got another 45 minutes before I call Sony...
