Two days ago we reported that the PlayStation 3 is acting like crazy and cant even play offline games. Looks like the issue was due to the leap year which disabled the owners to go online on the PSN and play offline games. Sony have officially declared this issue as close.
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.
If the time displayed on the XMB is still incorrect, users are able to adjust time settings manually or via the internet. If we have new information, we will update you through the PlayStation.Blog or PlayStation.com.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
