dont worry about it, its sonys end apparently

but dont attempt to play anything. Its being banded around that its corrupting saves, trophies etc!

NOOOOO! This has just happened to me! WTF Happening I cant play games? If I loose my 700 trophies and my consoles ****ed then what am supposed to do! :@

mines been down for about half hour. Check the forums on Gametrailers or the official PSN boards, its totally worldwide. Its resetting internal PS3 clocks, corrupting downloaded content, themes everytthing. I cant even get some games to even start, and when i try, its corrupting my data. Big one this it seems!

this is bad man this is so bad my roomates just been affected if this a hardware failure it'll be as bad as the RROD. I'm not happy atm wtf i'm calling Sony in the morning :@

Apparently all the slim Ps3's are working. Anyone got a slim, working or not working? Mines an old 40gb ps3 and out of warranty.

according to Sonys helpline it could be a virus which has got on to there servers and down into the ps3s of the world! Nice!

I want to know this aswell... Whats sony helpline number? are they 24 hours? i've got a 40GB aswell out of warrenty....

This news is spreading all over the internet - looks like PS3 owners are in some serious trouble..

update is that is "unscheduled maintenance" is what they are saying. And that everything should go back to normal within a few hours or so

"Okay this is way too weird.

My Themes corrupted, time and date changed, can't play some games due to trophy errors. I didn't know you could even change all that from Sony's end.

Sony's forums just went down again. "

i think the problem lies in that it IS connected to the net but something is wrong. Pull your network cable out the back of the ps3 or disable wifi and everything is ok again (ive just tried on mine)

Mine is down too, original 60gb from launch day!!!! Tried a few times to sign in hope that's not made it even worse!!!!!

"Again, this is me just guessing. Whatever the issue is, has probably prevented any changes even if you do change the time manually (just tried it), putting it to the correct time and date manually still won't work. That's why I believe it's firmware/server side."


WTF?

yup all mines have reset and curropted. my mates Burnout Paradise Trophies are all gone. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO START UP A GAME THAT USES TOPHIES. Apparently you loose them completely. I'm not trying it By looks of it all my Heavy Rain Tophies are gone as i tried starting it up. News is spreading fast now.... joystiq.com/201…s/2

community.eu.playstation.com/t5/…/20

My trophies for Heavy Rain (the game I tried to play) also disappeared off of my trophy list and the game will not boot due to some trophy syncing error. I have a launch 60Gb

This HAS to be some kind of virus/hacking

not sure if this is correct, but apparently this is SUPPOSED to be a leap year but isnt for one reason or another ( i cant find anything about it) and this is whats causing the cock up. Old fat Ps3 trying to find the 29th Feb and its just not there and they are all dying on there *****. Dunno!

Banned

mine is working, shame its just a 'ball in a cup'

Slim PS3? Probs not for long if it's not a Slim....

i thought as much lol :oops: but anything gets banded about these days! lol

According to reports, numerous early adopters of the PS3 have lost all access to PSN (60GB PHAT models with full BC support) and have also had PSN purchased content demoted to trials, and themes corrupted preventing must have games like Heavy Rain from even booting.

Also reported that Sony says it's a defect in the console itself and requires a repair.

Seems fishy that it's affecting mostly the only PS3 that is fully featured and hasn't had any features removed yet. Perhaps Sony is really trying hard to push PS2 game downloads via PSN by removing BC from consoles by all means necessary.

We're aware that many of you are having problems connecting to PSN, and yes, we're looking into it. Stay tuned for updates.

Bah not making me feel comfortable!

Doesn't sound good, anything like this happened before?

i aint bothered that the network is down, but i think its a bit rubbish when the psn is down that it WONT actually let you play games at all, even single player games (was hoping to try Heavy Rain tonight as its the first chance ive had and got tomorrow off work so was going to have an hour or so, but it wont even load to the first screen, just boots you out back to the dashboard

I just played Uncharted two and it wiped all my trophies... and reset my date!!!

Not really. Server Maintense happens like once every month rarely. But heres the thing The Playstation Network shouldnt Corrupt your Files so it's rather big if it's affecting your Files getting corrupted. It's a well timed time bomb for the PS3 not to recognise the 29th Feb and Kill itself.... Just a thoery of course haha. But yeah this aint good I hope Sony dont do a whole Toyota on us!.

Just for fun - I don't really care about trohpies anyway..

The PS3 Timebomb!!!

I do! I'm like level 11 with around 700 of em! I couldn't be ****ed to do that all again and would give up with them from that point...

Another late article about this whole PSN situation.
kotaku.com/548…own

For now I'm staying away from my PS3, checking gaming news sites and keeping an eye on Sony's twitter page for updates on what's going on:
twitter.com/Son…ion

All of my PAID DLC won't work - Tekken 5 Loco Roco etc... this is nasty. I'm not even online!!!

latest:

Just got off the phone with a "supervisor" about ten minutes ago. Someone hacked the servers and installed a trojan horse that was attached to the 3.15 system update. Whoever did it apparently set it so the trojan did not execute until sometime today. That is why stuff like mine is corrupted with themes, etc. May also be why the clock is set back to 1999. This is the final straw that I have had with Sony. Absolutely ridiculous. The fact you buy a brand new game and go home and put it in and yet have to wait another at least 15 minutes to play the game because of downloading and installing game data is ridiculous, as well as the numerous system updates and such that they come out with. If I can recall, their servers were hacked before. Apparently they don't learn from previous issues. I have run out of patience with Sony.

Holy!!!

(Thats a copy and paste by the way, not my rant!!!)

Tbh.. you get what you pay for... it's free......

and people moan that you have to pay for xbox live :roll:

Yeah but i remember a few years ago on Xbox Live when it was down for about 5 days and then had loads of lag for weeks after and all they gave us was a crappy arcade game.
