Following our from our previous report, which told you about the global downtime of the Playstation Network for PS3 users, we are now hearing that the bug is causing further problems relating to game save data and your trophies.
PS3 owners are waking up to be greeted with the “An error has occurred. You have been signed out of PlayStation Network (8001050F)” message. Sony has stated on their Twitter account that they are fixing the problem and to stay tuned for further updates.
However, according to several gaming forums, users are reporting that the PSN bug has deleted some of their game saves as well as trophy achievements. A big problem for Sony if that indeed is the case.
As we stated earlier, PS3 owners are best advised to keep their PS3 systems off, until the bug has been fixed – especially since the problem is also affecting systems are that offline too.
For those that have already experienced this bug – has it affected your game data and/or trophies?
