And they say PC gaming is user-unfriendly. Earlier today, we brought you word of a global PlayStation 3 outage that sent PS3 owners flocking to their exploded chess pieces and Rubik’s Cubes in a sad attempt at entertainment. Fortunately, just as Sony prophesied, after only 24 hours, the problem’s nothing but an unpleasant memory.
“We are aware that the internal clock functionality in the PS3 units other than the slim model, recognized the year 2010 as a leap year. Having the internal clock date change from February 29 to March 1 (both GMT), we have verified that the symptoms are now resolved and that users are able to use their PS3 normally,” said Sony Sr. Director Patrick Seybold in a blog post.
Sounds like all systems are go, then. “Corrupted” data’s also syncing properly again, in case you were worried about that.
And so ends the darkest moment in Sony’s history since, well, the PS3’s hilariously over-priced launch. Here’s hoping this is finally the last of the PS3’s many troubles.
