For anyone who has been unable to follow the news as of midnight March 1, 2010 people have been unable to access their PS3's properly. I had heard about this all day from the RSS Feeds but being that I have not been able to use my PS3 in several days and that I haven't watch television - all my news about it has come from G4TVs blogs. Here is what I have pieced together so far:

The problem has been an inability to hit the PSN network and online games malfunctioning. At first it seemed to affect the non-slim models of the PS3. Here what Sony had to say:

On its official PlayStation Blog, Sony posted that the "problem is being caused by a bug in the clock functionality incorporated in the system" and advises users of pre-Slim PlayStation 3 consoles to not use their systems "as doing so may result in errors in some functionality, such as recording obtained trophies, and not being able to restore certain data." Sony also said: "We hope to resolve this problem within the next 24 hours."

Sony's answer in the meantime is that all PS3 stay off the network until the problem is resovled. Thankfully G4TV bravely experimented to see how far the problem went!

And as of about 10 pm PST on March 1st, Sony has announced that everything is okay now
"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," said the company in a statement. "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."
