Sony warns not to connect to PSN with “any consumer units”

Monday, 1 March 2010 17:36 GMT By Patrick Garratt

Sony has just issued a stark warning against connecting any PS3 to PSN on its DevNet.

Said the firm on the developer-only resource just now: “We would also recommend not connecting any consumer units to the PSN to the network for the remainder of today.”

The note is the latest in a horror day for Sony, in which first-gen PS3s on a global level were struck with a clock bug that prevented them from connecting to PSN and put them at risk of Trophy data failure.

SCEE has just issued a consumer-facing statement on the matter, confirming the issue is related to the machine’s clock and saying it hopes to have matter resolved within 24 hours.

The DevNet line is in contrast to the statement, which merely warns, “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.

“As mentioned above, please be advised that the new slim PS3 is not affected with this error.”

For a full run-down on the day’s events, hit this.

    Surely the real irony of tea’s statement is that it’s only the early models — i.e. the ones created under Kutaragi’s reign — that have gone tits up. My Hirai-era slim works just fine.

    “As mentioned above, please be advised that the new slim PS3 is not affected with this error.”

    I think they wanted to say: “As mentioned above, please be advised that the new slim PS3s, available in stores everywhere for $299, are not affected with this error.”

    @ Aimless

    But I think TEA means that Kaz intentionally (not programmed, but ordered) aimed this error code at the BC models. Just hope that you’re Slim lasts as long as my PS2 lasted (it still lives FYI).

  16. Alakratt

    If I were a paranoid prick I would say that Kaz (or/and the other higher ups at Sony) wanted this to happen so that people would get the BC-less Slim models. So that if those people still wanted to play PS2 games, they would have to buy a PS2. Hence, more money for them. Obviously this is just in case I’m a paranoid prick…but it kinda makes sense.

    You hit the nail on the head Alakratt. This was an order of execution by Kaz Harai himself. A fucking new redesign so quick in the PS3′s early life span for what. For this people, this is why. I don’t think I can ever trust Sony again after this. They have to do something so out of left field great for me to ever get excited about anything they do from here on out.

    These fuckers just stepped all over my child hood memories by trying to whack us day 1 loyal customers who bought their PS3′s for full B/C with all PlayStation software spanning 3 generations.

    No that’s it, from this day forward its all XBOX360. this would have never happened if Kuturagi was still in power. I will never play another PlayStation console after this day.

    Fuck GOW3, Fuck GT5, Fuck MGS peace walker, Fuck PSN, Fuck trophies, and Fuck that FAT head jap Kaz Harai.

    XBOX360 it is!
    Microsoft it is!
    Bill Gates it is!

    and I will love swapping disc with the 360 version of FFXIII, don’t believe me check my achievements when the game is released!

    I think I’ll head down to my local bestbuy and inform potential PS3 buyers of what Sony has done and tell them 360 is the way to go. You really done it now Sony.

    Whats the bets that this has something to do with the new exploit that can only be done fat ps3s? I think its been caused so that everyone will need to update for the so called fix,in turn putting a stop to the future hack thats in the works..Sounds about right to me,just guessing.

    @ The conspiracy theorists.
    Do you honestly think a company like Sony would even contemplate something like that.
    I mean if they did and word got out it would spell disaster for them.
    This is just bad luck and nothing else and I reckon they are working flat out to resolve it.

    Ok I’m ready. I got my hat and coat on and now I’m leaving to go to my nearest bestbuy to pick up a one year live sub and a copy of MW2 for the XBOX360. While I’m there I ‘ll hang around just in case some potential PS3 buyers decide to prance on in and make the the biggest mistake of their lives.

    This boycott won’t stop unless I get an email from none other than Kaz Harai himself apologizing on his behalf. Until I receive that I’m going full GameStop employee on every gamers ass and will relentlessly try to convince everyone why you should choose a XBOX360 over a PS3. You know what….screw it I’ll even apply for a part time job at GameStop so I can get paid for my effort.

    Oh yea Sony you really pissed me off now…this is what happens when fanboys strike back!

    @60
    I asked the guy and he says that you dont need to strip it like that, just remove the HDD but honnestly it looks like he didnt bother to show that :S.

    @TEA
    So you’re going to tell people who are going to buy a PS3, about the bug… Knowing that the Slim is the only one you can buy these days and the ‘Phat’ is the only one affected by the bug? …If you happen to cross any buses on your way there please throw yourself under it.

    After all of Sony’s hard work this day had to happen.
    Well, eventually all companies have days like this, and it could have been far far worse.

    To be honest, if it hadn’t been for the news stories today probably would have passed me by completely as I don’t turn my PS3 on on Mondays.

    Funny really.

    I’m not to sure Moon, i think you have to open the top casing, then remove the HDD to access the screws to release the bottom part of the casing, then flip it over being careful with the disc drive because its loose, then you should see the battery. You take it out for 5mins, put it back in and put everything back together.
    I’m not to sure though, i’m just making assumptions based on whats been said in the comments of that video and whats shown.

    Apparently someone in the comments is saying that he’s got a better way of doing it and will post it in about an hour.

    Just wait till tomorrow for Sony’s fix. If they dont have a fix then they’ll no doubt tell us what the situation is directly. Though i’m still banking on the date changing tonight to help.

    Taking out the battery will mean that your internal clock will always be wrong, it might have some effects on future firmware updates and other features that need it.

  76. theevilaires

    Ok people I’m back. I fought the good fight at bestbuy and got a brand new copy of MW2 and a year of XBOX live. I’m ready to jump around like Michael Jordan in a green marine space suit and throw grenades across half a map while being cursed out by 12 year old British kids online.

    Also I’m not allowed back in that bestbuy anymore because customers complained that I was harassing them by giving factual evidence of why the 360 is the king of consoles now.

    The store employees chased me around the store for a good 7 minutes before I had a chance to take all the PS3 games and hide them behind all the old western dvd movie cases.

    Anyhow, if anyone wants to challenge me in MW2 my Gamertag is theevilaires. I’m all about achievements now so help with those spec op missions is greatly appreciated….and no Reask you can’t help me out with spec ops cause you suck and I’ll scream at you like a 12 year old British kid for sucking.

    …..still awaiting that email Kaz.

    Thanks for that Tea you just made my day. :)
    Anyway where I come from we walk the walk rather than talk the talk so I await your superior gaming skills. ;)I reckon we have enough on the site to set up a ffa game and I will gladly come in last.
    It will be worth it to see how good you are.
