PSN Crashed: 8001050F - Hardware Failure for PS3 Consoles!


216w ago - Update: The Examiner.com reports that when contacting Sony they were assured a PS3 fix will arrive by morning, but for those who can't wait you may wish to give THIS FIX a try.

Today it appears PSN crashed, with widespread reports of error code 8001050F - hardware failure for PS3 (non-Slim) consoles!

Sony has Tweeted the following, to quote: "We're aware that many of you are having problems connecting to PSN, and yes, we're looking into it. Stay tuned for updates."

Sony has also issued a PS Blog Update and second Tweet stating: "PSN status update: We're narrowing down the issue and continue to work to restore service to all. Updates as soon as we have them."

This is currently happening to a LOT of people, and some are concerned their PlayStation 3 entertainment system is now bricked as a result!

8001050F - Hardware failure. Cannot update Firmware or connect to Internet

Heavy Rain gives a different error (same error code) than "hardware failure" it says "Can't register trophy information. The game will now quit"

Can't connect to PSN ("An error has occured. You have been signed out of PlayStation Network. (8001050F)")

Can't load up disks ("Registration of the trophy information could not be completed. The game will quit. (8001050F)")

Can't play any downloaded titles ("The copyright protection information is invalid. (80029513)") For some reason all my downloaded games have no owner, so they don't work.

System time changed to Dec 31, 1999 (YOU CAN'T EVEN MANUALLY SET IT THAT LOW)

The only things that will work are demos, and the free version of FlOw (has no copyright information).

Anyone know what is up? Also, my PS3 slim upstairs lets me log in, but my PS3 Fat is all messed up to hell.

apparently it is fixed now... but wouldnt it have been crazy if this had turned out to be huge plot by sony to eliminate all of the fat ps3s out there. They could have made everyone send theirs in for a slim.
I live here in San Diego, not too far from Playstation headquarters San Diego and if this would have happened, first I would have stormed the building and stolen all that I could including the new MLB 10 game and then set the buildings on fire.

i got no problems with my 120GB ps3 slim. works all fine in aussie. sony could release a firmware update to all ps3 phats or even fix up PSN and make it the right date plus copyright problems hopefully.
