The anger over PS3 system updates has been gaining steam lately. It seems like there's a new update every week or two, not to mention the mini-updates you're subjected to once the game starts. If you haven't played your PS3 in a month you're looking at 30 minutes or more of updating and even more for each game you want to play. Plus, with the exception of big things like Move support and Netflix, most users typically don’t care or can’t even tell what each update does. It's a system that subtly but effectively encourages you not to continue using the system.
It could have been better if: The updates were actually useful once in awhile and took less time to install than driving to the store to buy a 360 instead.
