Don't use your PS3, says Sony

Well, Sony, the company that make PlayStation 3, tells gamers not to use their PlayStation 3 if their PS3 is the model before the recent slim PS3, for 24 hours. The Official PlayStation Blog:

In the meantime, if you have a model other than the new slim PS3, we advise that you do not use your 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.

The problem began last night and was continuing today and affects models other than the new slim PS3.

The blog listed five errors that users may experience as a result of the bug and then advised them not to use their system until the issue had been resolved.

I haven't been using the PlayStation 3 for games for more than a month. The PS3 is on 24hours, Laurent and I have been using it for TV recording (PlayTV). A cheap version of TiVo I have to say.

(to Don: Antony is poor, he does not own a TiVo.)

from iTunes Store:
I miss the days where you could just pop in a cartridge or CD and just play the game, without all this social online interactive crap that goes along with games nowadays.

Well, The Little Planet and other games I play can be played offline.

I just read that this was caused by the PS3 system software recognizing 2010 as a leap year. It's an interesting goof because even my PS2 gets leap years right.
