• have any of u heard of any one having disk read error after installing 2.80 firmware update
  • is it an obligation to download this update
    if i dont wanna download can i still play ps3 games
  • As you may have noticed it hasn't stopped you from playing games so no, it isn't mandatory to download. As for hearing of anyone bricking their system installing it, it seems that rumor always seems to float around when new versions come out. Needless to say, you won't kill your system with it. The only way it could harm your system is if the power went out part way through installing.
