Various PlayStation 3 operations prompt you not to shut down your console while they are in progress. For example, you are to avoid shutting down your console while performing one of the following:
- Updating the firmware
- Installing games/patches
- Saving a game's progress
Some of these operations are quite lengthy, making me feel very uneasy until they complete (who knows when a power outage might strike?)
My question is, what are the implications of the console shutting down during such an operation? Obviously some operations are more "dangerous" than others, as I imagine losing power during a firmware update can prove very unpleasant, so please specify which interrupted operations lead to which problems.
