If a console bricks it just doesn't work. When my PS3 bricked a few months back it turned on but the XMB wouldn't load...so I just had a £400 machine to watch a wavy line.
That was the 2.4 firmware update...no known problems with any other updates as far as I'm aware-the new patch seems fine.
It just adds content. I'd love some of it (none game related) to be optional but they're compulsory downloads.
If you're scared of your PS3 bricking you can download patches to your PC, then transfer them to your PS3 via a memory stick, and install.
