Thumbs down Global Corruption Of PS3 Network

Did this affect anyone here?

First off, let me just say I'm not a big gamer.
I just use them to pass the time when I get bored.

I hadn't fired up my PS3 for about 5 months until last night.
I was playing Bioshock (1) and actually getting pretty into it,
then it started freezing up me on like crazy.
It would cause me to reboot the whole system each time.
Then the date and time started going haywire and resetting itself to 12/31/1999.
I tried doing a system update, but it didn't help anything.
I've never had any issues with my system or games before,
so this was EXTREMELY aggravating to me.
It took everything I had not to throw that machine straight out the window!
I think that's why I stopped playing video games in the first place about 10 years ago.
I just don't have the right temperament for them anymore.

I did a little research on it today,
and found out it was a PSN Network issue on the older "FAT" systems.
Here's an article if anyone is interested:
PlayStation 3 Suffering From Widespread PSN Error [Update] - PS3 News at IGN

I'm glad that I had enough restraint not to turn my machine into a paperweight, but what a headache man.
Being as I'm not the big gamer, I didn't know that a network issue could cause you to not be able to play your games correctly while offline.
I don't do ANY online playing,
so I'm still confused to why it temporarily jacked up my system and/or gameplay.
Can anyone explain?

Supposedly, everything's back up and working fine now.
I haven't tried it out yet because I'm still pissed about it, believe it or not.
Temper, Temper, lol.

This glitch only effected the early model PS3's they are lacking hardware to allow them to connect to the "new" PSN the later PS3's have this, the only thing that can happen is for them to revert back to old PSN to patch all early model PS# boards and then continue on to the new PSN.

I have not had any issues with my playstation or PSN, i was playing COD lastnight for a few hrs.

dont worry the longest it will probably take is a week.......

This could be worse than Y2K

As long as it doesn't effect PSP I'm good. My buddy just gave me one for some money he owed me. It was supposed to go to the kids but I think I'm gonna be using it more than them

I played my slim last night just fine, but they've fixed it all.

The problem was the older PS3s thinking yesterday was 2/29/10.

It affected my roommate's PS3...started 2 nights ago. And it thought the date was 12/31/99.

He manually reset the date...and the next day he turned it on and the clock hadn't moved a single minute in the nearly 24 hours. He doesn't do a lot of online play...but the only thing he couldn't access was the online play for his NCAA Football 2010 game.

Some reported being unable to connect to the internet at all...he had a connection, just couldn't access the game server or whatever.

Others lost all their trophies and stuff too. I bet they were pissed...lol

Everything worked fine as of last night.
No freezing, back to normal.
Glad they got everything sorted out.
Even though I don't play very often, I expect it to work properly when I do.

I still don't understand why this online connectivity problem screwed up my game play.
I don't ever do any online playing.
Don't these damn things work as stand alone game machines?
Can anyone school me in this?
Keep in mind, I grew up with the ancient Atari and original NES for entertainment.

I think it had something to do with the trophy system. If a game had dynamic syncing for trophies, then you couldn't access the game even in single player mode.

Why doesn't that stuff get saved on the 80GB HDD that's in the machine?

(I realize there are different HDD sizes, I'm just saying there's more than enough room)

I'm not sure, but I know they have the completely useless Twitter updates to show when you get them, and your progress, maybe that has something to do with it. It was only certain games that you couldn't play in single player. Whenever you go to your trophy screen, it has to 'sync' them up, so I guess you have to be online to get all that stuff. I never tried it while offline.

This is the biggest reason I think the PSN is way, way behind MS with XBL. I would rather pay for a Sony subscription and get faster downloads and updates, and play on a Sony run server, than have these kinds of problems. This last problem was a firmware issue though.
