View Full Version : Sony Fail: “Update” Brings Down PlayStation Network (PSN) Around The World

03-01-2010, 01:29 AM
PS3 owners around the world are complaining that a recent upgrade has left them with in-game errors and unable to access the online gaming Sony PlayStation Network (PSN).

Reports, beginning just a few hours ago from Australia, North America and Europe, started a flood of complaints about people not only being unable to access the PSN but having the failure kick them out of games.

One reported problem is an 80001050F error code which is corrupting trophy information in games like Heavy Rain. Trophies monitor players’ progress throughout the game and without the correct information people are being kicked straight back to the XMB, the main menu system in Sony’s gaming consoles.

There’s still no official word on the problem but it could go beyond the PSN itself into the hardware.

Owners of PS3 Fats (the old-school PS3’s) are reporting that the date on their console has reverted to 12/31/1999. This may have something to do with the reasons why some PS3 owners are also receiving errors while the console is offline.

It should be said that Sony quickly acknowledged the problem and tweeted that they were looking into it – but that’s little help to the millions of gamers out there who have been unable to get their fix for the past few hours.

Updates will be posted as they come.

You better not turn on your PS3 till it's fixed. I lost my GTA IV trophies (I was playing that game) and some DLC.

I have not upgraded anything though.

This seems to be the problem:

What's apparently effed, as speculation goes, is when the internal GMT-tracking rolls over to 3/1. It's either not rolling, or rolling to 2/29, at which point a system tries to add/subtract from 2/29, which it can't do because the front-end calendar doesn't have a 2/29/2010, and shit explodes. Seemed to happen around 4PM PDT, which I think is 12AM GMT, so.And the PS3 launched in 2006; it's hit 4 2/28s so far. 2007 and 2009 were odd-numbered years; 2008 was an even, and a leap year. 2010 is the first even non-leap-year the system's been around for. If some sort of base-level math is choking on itself, it may have ruled out the odd 2007 and 2009 successfully, but is convinced the even 2010 is a leap year (this part I'm less sure of, but is why leap year could theoretically come into play at some point.



for updates.

A bit too late for me I only played SFIV no matter it is a game I will trade in on 1 month but Im curious Does it damage the trophies of the game you play or for all the trophies you've earn? because the damage is connected to things related to PSN like trophies and DL content so it most be for all games

at the very least everything else seems intact like in game memory installations PS1 PS2 Memory cards Characters unlock options etc...

I don't know. My GTA IV trophies are gone and my Uncharted 2 theme is damaged and maybe some more DLC.

But the rest of my trophies are still there.

It also happened to people who aren't connected to the internet.

My PS3 isn't connected to the internet. I noticed the wrong clock/time thing last night. I was able to change the clock on my own, and I was able to save my playoff game in my current NBA 2K season after that. Would it still be good for me not to play my PS3 again until the problem is fixed, even though I don't go online with it?

The Apocalps3 is over, all your ps3s should be working fine now, if you've lost trophies, just load the game up for those trophies, they should come back once the game syncs the trophies from your psn account.

happy gaming!

ohh I wondered what was going on last night, cheers for the info. I'm glad I don't play games if PSN is down

PSN is working now but I've gotta check none of my saves/trophies have fucked up

03-02-2010, 08:26 AM
just check mine and everything is fine all back to normal thou i got scared a bit when i turned on my PS3 and went straight to SFIV without syncing the trophies and didn't see any of my trophies from the game

I did have a laugh or 2 when i saw all the xbox fanboys have a field day yesterday on the net

They won't be out for atleast a couple of years and probably won't be perfect either.

What are you talking about? They are out I own one. Its the slim model.

That's why I wasn't affected.

wrongRight. i worked for M$ xbox division for 4 years son. ask niggas, i hooked a few cats up on here wit ms points and gold accounts.

03-04-2010, 12:34 PM
Ya'll can't say nothing against Sony on this matter PSN go fix within 24 hours and nobody loose anything everything went back to normal after a day and they were proactive with the situation twittering the problem and warning the users not to turn on their PS3 now it took years for MS to fix RROD which was a bigger problem and players ended up with 2 or 3 different 360's

03-05-2010, 12:58 AM
^^ c'mon son, xbox live breaks every other month. LOL!!!

nah i'd say its ten times better nowadays, but even when ms did fuck up it was never on this scale
