Ps3 crashes when updating
Touch and hold the Power button again until you've heard 2 beeps and a quick double beep 3.
If you've installed several mods, if using the older launcher, try renaming the "bin" directory in the Minecraft folder, then start Minecraft (Or replace your current with a clean from either a clean backup, download a jar file from the internet or force update the game should cause you to get a new clean jar file.). Once the crashing starts occurring again, the last mod installed is likely the problem, or another mod simply does not work with it.
As of yet, there's no indication if this update will have any impact on those problems.
There are new features on the way to PS4 in the near future.
Crashes can also be caused by bugs in the game (e.g.: before the beta 1.6.5 update, shift-clicking an item into a full chest would crash the game.) Crashes can sometimes cause the corruption of save files if the player is not careful enough.
Because of this, it is highly recommended that you regularly keep a copy of your save folder (located in the %appdata%/.minecraft directory on Windows systems or ~/.minecraft/ in linux), to reduce your losses should a world become corrupted as a result of a crash. Crashes used to have an error report but that feature has been removed.
Anyone booting up their Play Station 4 today will find that a new system update is now available.
