News: Somebody buy Sony a calendar.



It's finally safe for Sony to say "It Only Does Everything" about the PlayStation 3 again. After midnight the system's internal clock rolled over to the correct date and the PlayStation Network is now operational again.

It appears the problem occurred because the PS3 believed the year 2010 was a leap year and thought yesterday was February 29. Because it wasn't a leap year and yesterday was actually March 1, the PlayStation Network went into a meltdown mode. A mini-Y2K if you will.



Thankfully, the PS3 didn't fall from the sky or careen wildly on the road. If the system clock is still incorrect, users should be able to manually change it to the correct date now without any problems.

Sony's declaration that they'd have a fix in 24 hours was really waiting out the system clock to correct itself. I can see not wanting to admit that while the problem is going on and in the aftermath wonder how the company will make it up to the community.

They apologized once again for any inconvenience this may have caused, but Xbox Live users snagged a free download of Undertow when Microsoft's online service suffered outages in late 2007/early 2008. What will Sony offer?

We'll have more soon.
