Sony PlayStation has been down some hours ago. It’s not clear exactly for what region it’s down. Sony PlayStation 3 owners in multiple regions (including North America, Europe, and Australia) are facing the inability to sign into the PlayStation Network online gaming service, corrupted user data and inability to play some games online or off. There’s no ETA on when things will get back to normal.
An user on a PlayStation forum says:
At least if it’s all of us it isn’t just a console issue. Just wondering how long it’l be. I HAVEN’T PLAYED GAMES FOR HALF HOUR NOW. I’M GOING TO KILLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL.
The problems are accompanied by the 8001050F error code. When they try to load up certain games — including the just-released Heavy Rain — they receive the error code and the following message: “Registration of the trophy information could not be completed.”
According to one user over at the official PlayStation boards, the error does not prevent him from using the Internet via his PS3, but logins have become nigh impossible. Several other users chimed in after that comment to report identical problems.
Sony’s tweeted that it’s “looking into it,” and our boys at Joy say that owners of original PS3s are seeing their clocks reset and even data loss in some cases. We’ll keep you updated.
