The Sony PS3 problem is not solved yet, but Sony identified the issue and says it should be fixed in the next 24 hours. As reported earlier, old PS3 consoles cannot log into the PSN network and also offline game play is affected. Sony reports on the Playstation Blog the problem is being caused by a bug in the clock functionality incorporated in old (fat) PS3 systems.

The new Slim PS3 consoles are not affected by the bug.
Sony advises you to not use your previous generation 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.
Update:
Sony fixed the PS3 bug - or better - the bug fixed itself by changing the date to March 1st. The old PS3 unit thought that the year 2010 is a leap year for some reason. Because of that it set the date to February 29th. If your PS3 is still not working you can set the date manually to March.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
