Passage of Time Solves PS3 Glitch 147

An anonymous reader writes "A quick update on the widespread PlayStation 3 glitch we discussed recently: as of last night (Monday, March 1st) the problem has resolved itself. I powered up my PS3 to find the clock was set to April 29th, 2020, but once I went into the system menu and set the date and time via the internet I got an accurate date. That seems to be the test of whether your PS3 is 'fixed' or not; Sony says you should be all set."

    Here is the official press release I received in an e-mail this morning:

    First Quadrennial Childhood Obesity Awareness Day Goes Off Without a Hitch!

    We'd like to thank all our gamers for observing our compulsory First Quadrennial Childhood Obesity Awareness Day that we had planned many years in advance back when we made our first consoles. We hope all the children took the time to get outside and exercise. As always, Sony endorses moderation in game play and we feel that this surprise holiday away from the Playstation Network will help today's youth become more healthy and social.

    Should we decide to surprise you with a second Quadrennial Childhood Obesity Awareness Day, it could happen March 1st of 2012. See you in 2012 (maybe)! Until then, remember to get plenty of fresh air and exercise!

    Totally in control of the situation,

    Muhammed Saeed al-Sahaf
    Chief Sony Public Think of the Children Relations Officer

    Is SONY going to make my PS3 explode?

    No, but every twenty minutes a kitten will come out. [penny-arcade.com]

    That'll be fixed in the next update [penny-arcade.com] though.

    Is SONY going to make my PS3 explode?

    No, that's July 4th not April Fools Day.

    Your first word betrays your grasp of syntactical structure.

    I love how sony said that they would "fix" this in the next 24 hours yesterday. I'm glad they worked so hard and diligently to apply this fix. One might even say they moved the earth for it.

    ...That's pretty much what ALL of you so-called Slashdotters do. Belittle anyone who doesn't agree with you ("you, sir, are an idiot, anybody who does X is an idiot", etc). I also see that so-called Slashdotters have a tendency to assume that anybody who doesn't have in-depth knowledge about the topics discussed is also an idot.

    A bunch of armchair experts, who supposedly know everything from world politics to enterprise-level corporate management, but still SOMEHOW find the time through all of their corporate, financial and world-wide political success to post asinine comments on /.

    Hence, the topic of my post.

    And, who gives a fuck that I'm anon; stop waving your pseudonyms around, or leaving some silly signature as if your real name has any bearing on the validity of your posts.

    Whatever, faggot.

The Force is what holds everything together. It has its dark side, and it has its light side. It's sort of like cosmic duct tape.
