Sony PS3 (PSN) Downtime Update: Network error 8001050F causing data and trophy problems

By Alan Ng - Mar 1, 2010

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?

    hurry up, Sony people are starting to trade in there PS3's I mean you must be losing millions! i thought this would be no problem, i mean shouldn't you have a back up system?
    also, there are some PC games eg. supreme commander 2. and i though that game has to connection with the ps3, i recently bought it, and i need my PSN log in to log in, and its down!

    i understand that your doing all you can, but its pathetic that you don't have a back up system. now i understand where probably talking millions for a back up system, but your losing millions because you DON'T have a back up!

    dont know if this is related to the bug or not but to me it seems too much of a coincidence this happened. On Feb 28th i start my ps3 as usual and proceeded to sign in to ps3, after several attempts i gave up for the day and occupied my time elsewhere. THE NEXT DAY i tried to turn on my ps3 and was greeted with the YLOD (Yellow Light Of Death) I am well aware of SOME of the problems that cause this including the thermal compound but it seemed to coincidental to me that this bug and my ps3 YLODing on the SAME day is just too much. I own a 80gb 1st gen system i bought in '06
