This is just a notice to PS3 Owners who are experiencing problems with PSN, mostly error code 8001050F. As of right now, some games like Heavy Rain, cannot be accessed because it has something to do with the trophies, so it’s kicking people back to the XMB. I’ll update more when more information becomes available. Also, time and date setting have been revert back to 31st December 1999 for some PS3 Phat users.

UPDATE 2 (8:05PM EST) NEW INFORMATION: IT SEEMS SOME PEOPLE ARE LOSING TROPHY PROGRESS, NOT SURE IF THE PROGRESS WILL GO BACK UP AFTER THE ISSUE IS RESOLVED, BUT AS A PRECAUTION, YOU SHOULD STAY AWAY FROM ANY TROPHY GAME YOU HAVE. JUST IN CASE, YOU KNOW, LOSING ALL YOUR TROPHY PROGRESS.

UPDATE 3 (8:10 EST) I CAN CONFIRM THAT THIS ISN’T A PSN ISSUE ANYMORE, IT SEEMS TO BE A FIRMWARE ISSUE. MY PS3 HASN’T HAD INTERNET CONNECTIVITY SINCE JULY, AND I JUST TURNED IT ON TO SEE WHAT WILL HAPPEN, AND THE DATE IS 12/31/1999. I HAVE A 40GB ORIGINAL PS3. I CHECKED MY TROPHY PROGRESS AND IT’S STILL INTACT BUT I DID NOT LAUNCH SSHD, SINCE I DON’T FEEL LIKE RE-DOING ALL MY TROPHIES

UPDATE 4 (8:15 EST) SONY IS NOW AWARE OF THE PROBLEM AND ARE LOOKING INTO IT, LETS HOPE THEY WORK QUICKLY Twitter / Sony PlayStation: We’re aware that many of y …

UPDATES 5 (10:46 EST) SONY HAS POSTED SOME MORE UPDATES FROM THEIR TWITTER:

PSN status update (part 2): Readers/followers are confirming that “slim” units (120/250 GB models) are connecting normally.

Looks like our original find is correct, PS3 Slims (120/250 GB models) are unaffected. Those people can log into PSN without the fear of this happening to them as of right now.

Updates will continue as they become available.
