PlayStation Network Down [PSN]

What is starting to worry me is games that I have paid for from the PSN store are only working as if they are trials.

And I was just about drawn away from the XBOX ...

"Epic Fail" ... SONY you're doing it right! :bigthumbsdown:

Pure Mongrel 1st March 2010 08:00 PM

Hmmm ... all my Premium themes are listed as corrupted data, the games I purchased on the PSN store, won't work or are only in trial mode and I appear to have lost my trophies.

Anyone else having this issue?

I don't understand how the network being down has affected data I "presumably" host on my hard drive.

Anyone ready to use the "V" or "H" words yet? At the very least, I am calling shenanigans! :mad:

It is a noted problem and they 'say' they know what the issue is and have a team working on it.

Of course it only affects those with older machines, so you could just go out and buy a nice shiney new one :twisted::eek::w

Error: 8001050F Takes Down PlayStation Network - playstation network - Gizmodo

I'm having this error too.
FYI. affects LBP and is presently preventing me (or the kids, which is more annoying) playing any of the DLC either online or offline..

Is it just me ... or does Exploit seem a little disappointed that he can't play MAG? :eek:

Well it does not appear to be fixed this morning ... even the news links to tell me us what the status is are down ... :biglol:

Now why could this not have happened when I was the XBOX squad leader? I would have had a field day with this ... now I am just sad ...

FOE must still be in bed ;)

Only news I can get access to. Sorry no times on these update :(


IGN has contacted SCEA for additional updates on what's causing these errors.

Update: Sony has confirmed that slim PS3s (the 120/250 GB models) appear to be unaffected.

Update 2: According to Sony's US PlayStation blog, the company has "narrowed down the issue and have engineers working to restore service even as you read this." However, despite more calls to Sony there's no indication on the time it'll take to fix – or indeed what the fix will be. More updates the instant we get them.

Update 3: Sony has yet to provide an official update on the problem. The company did say, however, owners should wait before trying to resolve the issue. "Please don't trust info regarding this issue unless from an official Sony source."

Update 4: Sony just released the following statement:

"As you may be aware, some customers have been unable to connect to the PlayStation Network today. This problem affects the models other than the new slim PS3.

We believe we have identified that this problem is being caused by a bug in the clock functionality incorporated in the system.

Errors include:
* The date of the PS3 system may be re-set to Jan 1, 2000.
* When the user tries to sign-in to the PlayStation Network, the following message appears on the screen; "An error has occurred. You have been signed out of PlayStation Network (8001050F)".
* When the user tries to launch a game, the following error message appears on the screen and the trophy data may disappear; "Failed to install trophies. Please exit your game."
* When the user tries to set the time and date of the system via the Internet, the following message appears on the screen; "The current date and time could not be obtained. (8001050F)"
* Users are not able to playback certain rental video downloaded from the PlayStation Store before the expiration date.

We hope to resolve this problem within the next 24 hours. In the meantime, if you have a model other than the new slim PS3, we advise that you do not use your PS3 system, as doing so may result in errors in some functionality, such as recording obtained trophies, and not being able to restore certain data.

As mentioned above, Please be advised that the new slim PS3 is not affected with this error. We are doing our best to resolve the issue and do apologise for any inconvenience caused."
I may take off from work early, buy a bucket of popcorn and sit outside an EB and watch (and take bets on) the number of people trying to trade in their fat PS3 for a slimline ;)

I got this error the other day on my slim. It occured for over an hour until I reset my router.

When the user tries to sign-in to the PlayStation Network, the following message appears on the screen; "An error has occurred. You have been signed out of PlayStation Network (8001050F)".
