Dh had this happen to his. Everything was fine the next day, and since he oculdn't play any games requiring the ps network he didn't lose any data.
I on the other hand was forced to watch Madden 10, instead of his awesome Dragon game that is actually entertaining to me...

Hmmm. We have a PS2 but it's not connected to the Internet. I wish I would have read this earlier so I could've passed this along to my high school students in computer class today.

Hubby was talking to me a bit more on this--he says that it's because the older systems think that leap years occur every TWO years instead of 4. So every two years (when it's not a leap year) there will be problems on March 1. Because it's a hardware problem and not a software problem, there is no software update that would ever fix it.

So look forward to this happening again in 2014.

Looks like it's been fixed.

but the only systems that were "safe" were the ones that are the "slim" model (the smaller/newer version of the system). The no-internet connection didn't keep it from happening, but the internet connection could have made it worse.

I do think it was a March 1st only thing (probably confused with Feb. 29th is our guess), but according to the above article the issues are also resolving themselves (like the trophies not being there like they should be).

my husband played his today and it wouldn't connnect to the internet and wouldn't play certain games- it sounds like some of the systems are safe b/c they wouldn't connect to the internet.. we were able to play madden 10 with no problems. the bug just be preventing some games from working and it sounds like IF the internet gets connected it may get worse..

(thought I'd throw this out here as well, even though it's more of a Wii group, just in case it might help someone)

Hubby just called me saying that a co-worker sent out an email saying that there's a bug on the PS3 that will cause data lose. It's associated with today's date and an internet connection will make the problem worse.
