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:

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.
