    It looks like the PS3 doesn't like the 1st of March?


    Try switching it on (if its the fat one) and let us know, the problems come from the data and not able to connect to the PS3 network

    Thats odd in less that 24hrs there is a 7 page thread on Digital Spy about the issue, looks like it realated to the fat one not understanding the March the 1st date and reverts to 1999 locking it out of the PSN

    **DO NOT SWITCH ON**

    When u connect to PSN it downloads the data that causes the problem!!

    staz,
    ive had several calls and emails today comfirming that once it connects to the PSN as cruiser89 states, it tries to download back to 1999, therefore it goes kerput!! im told this only involves the fat consoles, the newer slims arent affected, apparently.
    to be fair id rather not take the risk, i have 3 ps3's in the house and would be sure to get serious kickin from my 8 and 11 year old sons if they bricked !! lol

    I'm not doubting that there's an issue, but since I posted earlier that mine was ok then it's safe to say it's ok to turn on :)

    Does the PS3 even have automatic updates?

    You could always just disable the internet connection before letting him use it mate but mine has been switched on all evening and it connects automatically to PSN :shrug:

    Reading on Digital Spy, it seems to have been resolved. Not sure how true it is.

    Hehe

    Just heard a guy on R5 that he lost his game saves and DLC data, but he was gaming over the shut down period at midnight. So perhaps that slightly different, lets hope they get it back up and running for the launch of Polyphony Digitals GT5.

    No updates as yet, but just keep an eye on AVForums or some other PS sites, that should update and let you know how it goes.
