    ps3 PS3 fix expected “within 24 hours”

    Owners advised not to turn on console as doing so "may result in errors in some functionality"
    Sony has claimed that it hopes to have solved the glitch problems affecting the vast majority of PS3 owners within the next 24 hours – and added that owners of older ‘fat’ machines should not turn on their consoles in the interim.
    “We hope to resolve this problem within the next 24 hours,” a post on the EU PlayStation blog reads.
    “We believe we have identified that this problem is being caused by a bug in the clock functionality incorporated in the system.
    “In the meantime, if you have one of the above listed models, we advise that you do not use your PS3 system, as doing so may result in errors in some functionality, such as recording obtained trophies, and not being able to restore certain data.”
    Sony also reiterated that PS3 Slim models are not troubled by the issues.

    Full details of the error are detailed below:
    * The date of the PS3 system may be re-set to Jan 1, 2000.
    * When the user tries to sign-in to the PlayStation Network, the following message appears on the screen; "An error has occurred. You have been signed out of PlayStation Network (8001050F)".
    * When the user tries to launch a game, the following error message appears on the screen and the trophy data may disappear; “Failed to install trophies. Please exit your game.”
    * When the user tries to set the time and date of the system via the Internet, the following message appears on the screen; “The current date and time could not be obtained. (8001050F)”
    * Users are not able to playback certain rental video downloaded from the PlayStation Store before the expiration date.

    seems the fix in 24 hours was quoted because they knew once the consoles hardware clock passed the first it would start working again.

    would of been nice if they the problem would fix it self at midnight instead of saying they are working on a problem the obviously knew would resolve it's self.

    altho it is quite comical reading the PS3 twitter with all the people thanking Sony despite the fact offline consoles are also magically working again meaning sony did nothing but wait for the system to reset.
