Sony has laid down a new target date for their fix for the crippling PS3 bug: within the next 24 hours.
Monday morning’s come and gone but the crippling PS3 bug remains active. Sony has laid down a new target date for the fix: within the next 24 hours.
“We hope to resolve this problem within the next 24 hours,” posted SCEA’s Patrick Seybold on the US PlayStation blog. “In the meantime, if you have a model other than the new slim PS3, 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.”
The bug, which Sony believes is being caused by a problem in the PS3’s clock and has so far steered clear of PS3 Slims, has been known to cause the following problems:
- 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 followingmessage appears on the screen; “An error has occurred. You have beensigned out of PlayStation Network (8001050F)”.
- When the user tries to launch a game, the following error message appearson the screen and the trophy data may disappear; “Failed to installtrophies. Please exit your game.”
- When the user tries to set the time and date of the system via theInternet, the following message appears on the screen; “The current dateand time could not be obtained. (8001050F)”
- Users are not able to play back certain rental video downloaded from thePlayStation Store before the expiration date.
