Over 8 million PS3s potentially bricked

Post  Rorschach on Mon Mar 01, 2010 4:33 am

A wide rash of game-crashing errors is spreading among the PS3-owning community at the moment, most of which can be chalked up to a 8001050F error code. This has led to a variety of unfortunate side-effects for those affected, including corrupted trophy information and an inability to access the PSN. When combined, those two issues prevent players from launching certain games, such as Heavy Rain, without being kicked back to the XMB.

We've contacted Sony to find out what's causing the issue, and when we can expect to get back to chasing down the Origami Killer. He might just be able to make a clean getaway while we suffer through this downtime.

Update: Sony has acknowledged the issue, and is "looking into it." We've yet to hear an official word on what the problem is, though it seems to be a bit larger than just the PSN. Owners of PS3 Phats are reporting that the date on their console has reverted to 12/31/1999, which is likely the cause of the data-corrupting errors. Some Phat-owners have reported receiving the errors while their console was offline, which is upsetting, to say the least. We'll let you know when we hear official word from Sony.

"Some technology bloggers and PlayStation users have speculated the problems could be connected with the changeover from February 28 to March 1, similar to how Microsoft Corp.'s Zune portable music players froze up in 2008 due to a coding failure which failed to take the leap year into account."

Sony Advise to not touch your PS3, unless you have a slim. Slim's are fine, apparently?

Plus here's their latest update on it

Crying or Very sad I got Heavy Rain today, and it's hard not to attempt to play it.

I want to get some free stuff for not being able to play anything for 24 hours. Very Happy
