Strange, I can't log into PSN and the error message only popped on one of my five games (Batman: Arkham Asylum), but even then it continued on and I was able to enter story mode. When the error message appears, is it supposed to be unplayable in every way?

Does it have trophies? Most downloaded games will have reverted to trial and demo versions (I visit a Wipeout HD forum where everyone is only able to play trial versions of Wipeout HD). This applies to nearly all PSN Store Games.

Most disc based games are simply refusing to startup after getting a trophy sync error message.

Games that don't have any checks to see wether you're online in order to syncc trophy data should be working fine. That would be games like Turok, Valkyria Chronicles, MGS4... generally older games that were never updated to feature trophies. Or newer games that simply have some different kind of check in place I suppose.

Even if you're not online, there is something seriously messing stuff up. I haven't tried loading any games though, I'm leaving it off until I hear word from Sony about just what we are supposed to do.

Both Batman & Fallout 3 have trophies, I believe. And Fallout 3 didn't even get an error message. They're both discs.

Wait, you do you have a PS3 fat or slim?

Here's a quote from the PS3 blog from a few hours ago:

Quote:
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.
Even if some games work, I'm reluctant to use the system at the moment. :S

EDIT: And this is supposedly what just about all games suffer on attempting startup:
Quote:
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.”

I have a fat one, got it in December 2008. I'm going to wait, though. Like you said, I don't want to push my luck.

There are some fat ones which are unaffected, namely the last few newest models before the slim came along. Seeing as yours is from 2008, it may be one. Although, unless the PSN network is down you should be able to login.

Supposedly, model number CECHL01 and CECHP01 are not affected. You can check your model number on a little sticker on the underside of your PS3. But this info is from people posting on gamefaqs, so it might not be too trustworthy.

Also model numbers...
CECHA01
CECHE01
CECHG01
CECHH01
CECHK01
...are all definitely affected. Mine is CHECHG03, a 40GB model.

Yea, yours should be fine. Can you log into PSN?

The error I had when powering my PS3 up was an instant fullscreen error saying "You have been signed out of the Playstation Network. (8001050F0)" before I had even done anything, nevermind trying to load a game. This 8001050F0 error is a clear indication that your system is affected.

This should be the case for the vast majority of people who have the auto-sign in option enabled and have their PS3 connected to the internet all the time (I use a WiFi connection).

But if you're really unsure, you probably should hold off for 50 more minutes. People are hoping that once this day is over (in GMT time) that all PS3s worldwide should hopefully become operational again. This is the optimistic view at least...

Yes, mine is affected (CECHE01 MG) which is a 80GB model and the last of the backwards compatible models. However, I turned off the network and set the time manually and it kept the time...

So until a update comes, I won't be logging into PSN... if it mattered (also, the firmware is out of date as well).

Yea, yours is 100% fine then.

Also, reports are now coming in (search 'ps3' on google and filter the results by 'latest') that the ApocalyPS3 is over, systems are magically starting to work again even before hitting midnight. It's a miracle? I'm still going to wait the extra 11 minutes before trying.

hmm just saw the fix thing, looks like it's working at least mine now is (most likely as it's because a internal date clock changed to the next day)

Man... the day I decided to finally buy a PS3, it's out of stock on Amazon and other retailers that are exempt from CA taxes. Sadface.

That was a very strange bug, but it's now back to normal... In contrast, the 30GB Zunes had a leap year bug, but in this case it made the device completely unusable as it frozen compared to the Playstation 3 where most of the functions are functional, except PSN, trophies and restoring data. When it went back to normal, I finally took the opportunity to update the firmware on the Playstation 3.

Meh, lost all my trophy data for Star Ocean: TLH. Normally I'm not a rabid fan of trophies, but they are a fun thing to aim for on the side, and I was in fact close to beating the game at the time the global "crash" occured so I had a good number of trophies accumulated.... :/ I just hope there isn't some error that stops me from getting them again on a second playthrough.
