PlayStation Network Service Restored

Patrick Seybold's Avatar Posted by Sr. Director, Corporate Communications & Social Media

We are aware that the internal clock functionality in the PS3 units other than the slim model, recognized the year 2010 as a leap year. Having the internal clock date change from February 29 to March 1 (both GMT), we have verified that the symptoms are now resolved and that users are able to use their PS3 normally.

If the time displayed on the XMB is still incorrect, users are able to adjust time settings manually or via the internet. If we have new information, we will update you through the PlayStation.Blog or

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

The symptoms have not been resolved and i have not heard a response from sony since monday.

Mine is still messing up. Playing games is fine but anything that requires accessing the PSN makes it shut off randomly.

I have two of my friends PS3’s 20gb and 60gb stopped working on them. They said as soon as they turned on their systems one on Mar.4th and the other Mar.5th all they got was a static effect showing on their televisions, instead of the PS3 logo or start up screen and themes. After hearing this from the both of them i am afraid to turned mines on which is a 20gb. Are there other people having the same issue after the resolved leap-year bug fixed? i just wanted to know if any other older PS3 owner’s having the same problem as my friends?

I’m still skeptical. Haven’t turned on PS3 since Heavy Rain, U.S. release. Not letting it happen again…can’t afford to pay.

Luckily, I was able to recover my trophies, so everything is fine again. ;)

Wow, I love the silly “finally” comments. Idiots. They said they would fix it in 24 hours, and they did, and people still whine? Like you were really waiting that long anyways?

I didn’t turn my PS3 on all last week, and it seemed to be working fine this weekend. I haven’t looked at my trophies and stuff yet, but I am assuming I was unaffected.

And I am also curious how this resolved itself with not firmware fix. I would assume we would need something to update our systems, it wasn’t only a PSN error, was it?

How can I get my trophies back? I was near the end of beating Batman Arkham Asylum when I started getting that error, and I lost all of my trophies!

I have already tried “synching” my trophies, but they are still gone!

The issues with the PSN may have been fixed but now a new problem has cropped up as a result of the leap year bug that Sony is saying was not caused by the date bug. Many users are all of a sudden experiencing game freezes, ps3 errors, and unreadable disc errors. Callers to Sony are given 2 options: repair for $178 or upgrade to refurb for $149.

The part that ticks me off the most is that Sony’s support staff are aware of this issue and are not informing the higher ups of this growing issue. People are slowly but surely finding a post on the playstation forum that has grown over the past couple of months but have grown even more in the past week with people having the same issue this week.

They are saying that this is coincidental and has nothing to do with the date bug. I have provided a link to the forum at around the time that people have started saying they are getting these errors this week. Read for yourself and see if it all sounds coincidental to you.

as i was about to say, i was booted off playstation network just now.hope your reading this sony. i not a child, i’m 56, disable, and homebound, i became addicted to your game system christmas 2009 when my daughter gave this to me. i spend many hours playing off line games. last june i got addicted to killzone 2, all i played was the game. now after your system crash, i’m told i have to send my system back, to have it fixed cause your system update stopped my from loading all my games, i watch movies, but play games. i’m not paying 500.00 to sony. if sony don’t fix every system for all their owners, for free, i’m filing a class action suit, for all of us ps3 owners that have systems that are out of warranty. lets see if i get a reply or i lose my account. XBOX360 might sound good now.

Hi Sony and PlayStation Network and community-

We have a serious problem. My system appeared to be fine after the initial error (like you said it would be, but it’s not. I just received the error today and didn’t notice the symptoms that occured yesterday.
It signed out regularly yesterday and I thought it might be my internet service or router, but now it’s obvious that my hard drive is corrupted. I couldn’t play mw2 at first, and it wouldn’t find games so I kept playing FF13 thinking mw2 was having issues again.
I tried mw2 again today and it gave me the 80022D86 “Registration of the trophy information could not be completed. Your game will quit” I tried playing FF13 and it did the same thing now. I am assuming it will for all my games.

This is a concerning and major issue and I wouldn’t be surprised if it was Microsoft behind it but all the same you guys need to step up and help the people who are having issues.

When your sales aren’t that great, it’s easy to double. Sony continues to struggle to prove that the PS3 is the console of choice for gamers. Unfortunately, the numbers speak for themselves and gamers disagree. How’s last place going Sony?

Just thought I’d repost here to see if I get a different, SATISFACTORY response –

Same situation for us with our 60GB unit – PS3 was off continuously from the last Saturday in February until the morning of March 3. My son played MW2 for about 3 minutes before school started, and the PS3 shut down. He tried to turn it back on to no avail – green light, yellow light, flashing red light. There is NO WAY this is a “coincidence” for so many people. We got the same corporate line from Sony when we called, and followed up with an e-mail :-(

Same thing over again. Ps3 will not read game disc, only bluray movies. Only seems to happen on sundays. Not getting any error messages at all.
