Update: Sony PSN Service Restored

Earlier today we reported that Sony PS3 owners were having issues with the consoles and the Playstation network. About 6pm PST Sony reported via Twitter that those issues have now been resolved. According to the full post on the Playstation Blog the issue was caused by an internal clock glitch that reported 2010 as a leap year.

We are aware that the internal clock functionality in the PS3 units other than the slim model, recognized the year 2010 as a leap year. Having the internal clock date change from February 29 to March 1 (both GMT), we have verified that the symptoms are now resolved and that users are able to use their PS3 normally.

If the time displayed on the XMB is still incorrect, users are able to adjust time settings manually or via the internet. If we have new information, we will update you through the PlayStation.Blog or

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
