SonY said a bug with the console clock was responsible for the serious technical glitch, which has left thousands of PS3 owners unable to connect to the PlayStation Network.

It has warned PS3 owners not to use their games console until it has issued a fix to resolve the problem
As you may be aware, some customers have been unable to connect to the PlayStation Network today," said Sony in a statement. "We believe we have identified that this problem is being caused by a bug in the clock functionality incorporated in the system.

"We hope to resolve this problem within the next 24 hours. 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.

"We are doing our best to resolve the issue and apologise for any inconvenience caused."

The glitch first came to light overnight, as the internal clock and calendar on the PlayStation 3 switched from February to March. Many PS3 owner reported that their console clock had reset itself to Dec 31, 1999 or Jan 1, 2000.

the problems been found.
More than 24-hours ago, PlayStation 3 owners around the world began reporting serious issues with their consoles. While some PS3s have been unable to play games and log into the PlayStation Network, other consoles havenít experienced any problems. The question is: what is going on?

The first thing to note is that this is not a PlayStation Network issue. These errors and issues are directly related to the hardware side of the PlayStation 3 console. Specifically, the system and OS clocks are conflicting, which is causing erratic system behavior. The system clock is running at all times and only counts forward. When powered on, the system clock confirms what time it is to the OS Clock. On top of that, when a PlayStation 3 is on, a battery inside of the PlayStation 3 gets charged which runs the system clock in the background even when the PlayStation 3 is turned off.

Whatís causing the problem?

The system clock thinks that today is a leap year dated February 29th, 2010. Meanwhile, the OS Clock doesnít have that date available in its table since it doesnít exist. What we have are two very conflicting dates which have caused the PlayStation 3 to change behavior. Itís hard to tell exactly why the date on many PS3s has been rolled back to 1999, but it could be a protocol set in place by Sony for situations like this.

Why does the system clock think itís leap year?

Apparently, the older PlayStation 3s have been programmed to think that every even year is a leap year. You might be asking, ďWell, why didnít PS3 consoles face this issue in 2008 then?Ē. The answer is, because 2008 WAS a leap year. This is an unfortunate set of circumstances, because in reality leap year is every four years, but the console thinks that it is every two.

At this point, one of three things can happen.

1. The official GMT ticks over to March 2nd and the PlayStation 3 moves to March 1st instead of the leap year date which is causing the issues.

2. Sony finds a way to force the System Clock to move to the current date or at least behave properly.

3. There is no way fix the issue and Sony will have to find a plan b.

Some consumers are removing the internal battery to reset the System Clock which apparently has worked thus far. This isnít a good idea, however, since it voids the warranty and might create more problems if Sony issues a fix. At any rate, in roughly 2-3 hours the official GMT will shift over to the next day, and hopefully the PlayStation 3 will begin working properly again. Until then, we recommend keeping the PlayStation 3 turned off while waiting for an official update from Sony.

yeah this image has been posted all the over place today.
