PlayStation 3 Network plagued by bug
NEW YORK - March 1, 2010 -- Sony says it has found a bug that has knocked some PlayStation 3 users off the game console's online network.
Sony says the problem was likely caused by a bug in the clock functionality incorporated in the system. It's affecting older PlayStation 3 models, not the newest slim version.
Sony would not say how many users were affected by the problem, which comes just as PlayStation 3 sales are picking up.
Errors that PS3 users started seeing Sunday include the date of the systems being reset to Jan. 1, 2000. The problem was reminiscent of the Y2K bug a decade ago.
Sony said in a blog post Monday it hopes to resolve the problem within 24 hours.
