Does the malware do anything? Your virus prob detects a false report.

A bad update on a console would brick it, which is EVEN worse.

A fan is confident in the game they prefer being able to stand on its own merits.
A fanatic attacks the opposing game showing insecurity in the game they like.

Can't a "bad" os update do the same?

Technically yes, but a system format and reinstall can generally correct this on a PC.

Generally Console updates are flashed to it's firmware.

On the user end there generally nothing can be done. Unless the system has some kind of restore function.

Thankfully the PS3 for example has such a system restore menu. I cannot even verify such thing exists on the 360, though so those guys are SOL unless they have something like that.

No, because a PC boots to BIOS/bootmgr before OS.

Pro tip: utorrent alphas don't have any malware

Deluge and Transmission are amazing for that guilt-free feeling

Not if the firmware fails in an update, it goes into a constant update loop until it either finishes it, or burns out forever
