Well, some updates are safe, but a few have crashed PS3's. So being cautious is a good idea. A few days wait maybe a good idea. But, you do have to download the updates eventually. I think PS4 updates maybe easier though. Hopefully, we'll see.

Honestly I don't think the "update" crashed systems. If it did then ALL systems would crash with that update. What may happen is the difference that the user creates with their PS3. A new HDD, an HDD with limited space available, failing PS3 due to lack of maintenance or any number of variables that the user can create.

What we will never know is with those "crashed" PS3s what was their common feature. Were they all slims? No. Were they all dirty as hell? who knows. Were they all launch versions? probably not. Did they all have less than 20GB of free space? who knows. Was their download of the update corrupted? Did the user try and JB the console at some point?

 

With all of the checks that they have to go through in QA I would highly doubt that an update in itself would brick a PS3. Not saying that it cannot happen but the probabilty of it getting released to the public is slim to none.

There are underlying reasons why PS3 have crashed when updating. It was not the update that caused it.
