Default KEEP YOUR PS3 TURNED OFF

http://www.engadget.com/2010/03/01/s...-bug-is-fixed/

If you have the older system (which most of us do) DO NOT turn it on. I booted mine up last night for the first time in weeks and now have a trophy error. Games crash out and refuse to start up now. Then *TODAY* they release this. Which sucks, too late for me.

I'm waiting to see what sonys going to do about it, hopefully an update will solve the issue and I won't have to send it in..

Wow, that's great software Q&A. Pretty much the opposite of Microsoft's system (great software, defective hardware).

There better be a software fix. That is absolutely ridiculous. I have a new PS3, so it doesn't apply to me luckily.

Why not just unplug your PS3 from the network until it is resolved? its not pretty but at least you get partial functionality.

I do agree this is a major smack in the face for the profits they were starting to turn.

Crisis Averted? I gotta turn mine on in a sec to see what it does.

It wasn't the network Davis, it was a glitch with the internal clock apparently. My PS3 thought it was 1999 and threw it into all kinds of general stupidness.

From the Sony Blog:
Quote:
We are aware that the internal clock functionality in the PS3 units other than the slim model, recognized the year 2010 as a leap year. Having the internal clock date change from February 29 to March 1 (both GMT), we have verified that the symptoms are now resolved and that users are able to use their PS3 normally.
EDIT: Turned mine on, seems to be working again so far, the couple games I launched are good, trophy data is back.. PS3 thought it was 2/28, but a quick time sync corrected it. Strange.

This all sounds somewhat familiar http://www.computerworld.com/s/artic..._leap_year_bug

So in otherwords sony did nothing, and it fixed itself. Playstation: It only does everything.

It probably just wanted to party like it was 1999, good to hear they fixed this up quickly.

crap, so that's what the hell was going on yesterday. My time was all crewed up, and I couldn't sign in any more. Sucks. Ah well, I'm using another ps3 slim in reno and wont e home to use the fat for 3 weeks, so it should be fixed by then.
