Re: HEAVY RAIN kicks ass!!
US, February 28, 2010 – SCEA is looking into widespread reports tonight of PlayStation Network errors causing many to not be able to play games, and even lose trophies, on their PlayStation 3 consoles.
“We're aware that many of you are having problems connecting to PSN, and yes, we're looking into it,” the company said in a statement. “Stay tuned for updates.”
Forum members and e-mail tipsters are saying this problem is primary affecting owners of the older model of the PlayStation 3, and is even causing users to lose trophies previously earned. Many titles, such as Heavy Rain, are now unplayable due to connection issues with Sony's servers.
One theory points to an issue with the console's internal calendar, which is resetting pre-slim consoles to 12/31/1999. It's unclear at the moment how widespread this issue is.
IGN has contacted SCEA for an update on what's causing these errors. We'll keep you updated
