Sony PlayStation 3 owners were warned yesterday to immediately stop using their consoles after a mysterious glitch caused havoc to its internal clock. Sony Computer Entertainment has highlighted that the problem has now been resolved.
As mentioned yesterday on Current.com.au, gamers around the world were being advised to immediately stop using their console. The green light has now been given to all PS3 owners that it is once again safe to start playing.
“We are aware that the internal clock functionality in the PS3 units, other than the slim model, recognised 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,” said a Sony Computer Entertainment spokesperson.
“If the time displayed on the XrossMediaBar 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 apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.”
