Users turning on their original (fat) PS3s last night and today have been hit with a clock bug, reminiscent of the Y2K bug, that causes PSN connectivity issues, date resetting and most annoying of all, data loss. The official word on from Sony is: Don’t turn on your PS3 for the next 24 hours if you’ve got anything other than a PS3 slim. Dire words indeed from a company that should be basking in the glory of Hard Rain, a Playstation exclusive, conquering the all formats chart.
Hit the break to see what Playstation have to say
[UPDATE] Seems like it’s fixed, either that or Sony just waited out the bug and it’s OK on the other side. It’s not apparent what they did to fix it and they’re not telling us either. Chock this one up to Y2K10 and hope it doesn’t happen again.
