Sony PS3 PSN Problem: Leap Year is to blame

Yesterday millions of classic PS3 owners were unable to connect to the PlayStation Network, however just over 9 hours ago Sony announced that the problem had been resolved, we are now hearing exactly what caused the problem.

According to Sony’s official blog the problem was a bug with the internal clock, this bug wrongly assumed that 2010 was a leap year, therefore thought yesterday was February 29th instead of March 1st.

Apparently by changing the internal clock from February 29th to March 1st the problem was resolved, lets hope the PS3 doesn’t think 2011 is a leap year!

Is everything working for you?
