While we advise all of you to not jump to conclusions on Sony’s global PS3 network bug, we simply can’t ignore this interesting article we’ve found, which indicates that the problem could turn out to be BIGGER than Microsoft’s infamous problems with the RROD.
The article in question comes from TheLostGamer, who have listed possible solutions which will fix the bug and return everything back to normal.
These include Sony re-writing the binary code of the clock chip, to counter the system thinking that there will be a February 29th in years to follow, which is thought to be the main issue causing the problem. Since the problem is affecting users offline too, Sony may have to resort to distributing service discs to retailers or customers directly – for PS3 owners who are unable to connect to the internet (If a patch update is released)
Of course, if this all fails for Sony – then the only option for the company would be to recall affected systems – which would bring up inevitable similarities with Microsoft’s RROD problem and cause chaos amongst PS3 owners no doubt.
What do you think about this? It may seem farfetched right now, but could a global recall be a possible outcome of this problem?
