Sony blames Y2K10?

Sony’s Playstation Network has been having some serious issues lately. From apparent data errors and glitches preventing people from obtaining trophies and other achievements to flat out blue screen errors.

It took over 24 hours to resolve a problem that preventing hundreds from even playing their Playstation 3 systems, and during that time frame Sony apparently recommended not playing at all, even if everything appeared to be fine on your system.

According to a story published in PCWorld.com Sony blamed the Y2K bug. Apparently the PS3 consoles thought that 2010 was a leap year and tried to change the date to February 29th instead of March 1st.

To keep this straight, the Playstation 3 came out, according to Wikipedia, in 2006. That’s six years after 2000 and the time of the Y2K scare. Who programmed their calendar and when was it programmed? 1999?

Well, it’s a good day to not be a console gamer. I’ll continue playing on my PC, where Windows will randomly crash or I’ll have to reformat my hardrive, but I can always reboot or reinstall. Try reinstalling your console operating system and let me know how that goes.
