Hey Guys and Gals,
This only affects you if you are one of the earlybirds got the Abominable Snowman update in the last 2 days (from 10am yesterday to about 4pm today – Pacific Time). You can tell if you are in this group by going to MANAGE -> SYSTEM -> CONSOLE INFO. If it says “Build Number: 1.2.667_r1” you should keep reading.
I wanted to notify you of a bug that may impact your ability to get future updates in a timely manner. It will also affect downloads queued from the web.
We’ve discovered a issue in the Abominable Snowman build that sometimes prevents it from grabbing future automatic system updates for a period of time.
We’ve already got a fix for this, and getting it is easy. Just go to MANAGE -> SYSTEM -> SYSTEM UPDATES and you’ll get the update right away. You’ll eventually get the update regardless, but this ensures you’ll get any future updates right when they happen instead of having to wait.
We’ve also got the set of users affected by this, so we’ll contact those that don’t update over the weekend to let them know =) It’s very important to us that we give our gamers the best possible experience and part of that is letting you know about issues like this. Apologies for the inconvenience!
