If you’re trying to get onto PlayStation Network as of right now, sorry, it’s down. Many users of PSN have confirmed that the network is currently unavailable, with them receiving a 8001050F error message. That’s not all, many more issues have appeared, leaving PlayStation Network users are less than thrilled, voicing their frustration on forums around the ‘net.
The date on your PSN clock has also apparently changed as well, to December 31st. The time has also been mixed up as well. This is probably due to the fact that there is no network access whatsoever. Users have also reported that games are not working, because trophy access is unresponsive. If you try to play a PS3 or PSN title, the game will give you this message:
Registration of the trophy information could not be completed.
The game will quit.
Purchased PSN titles are not working as well, and some are reporting of copyright issues. Demos however, are working fine.
We’ll bring you more on this network error as soon as more news hits.
Thanks LpSquall for the tip!
Sony has officially responded to the problems users are experiencing with PlayStation Network.
“We’re aware that many of you are having problems connecting to PSN, and yes, we’re looking into it. Stay tuned for updates.”
It seems as though owners of 120GB/250GB “slim” PS3 model are able to connect to the PlayStation Network. The problem appears to be isolated to the original “fat” PS3 models.
