I turned on my PS3 after work, only to be greeted with the rather alarming welcoming message “Registration of the trophy information could not be completed. The game will quit. (8001050f)”

It turns out, this is something to do with February 29th, which didn’t actually happen this year, and a recent software upgrade that has caused everyone’s consoles to break and cause the date to revert back to 01/01/2000. This also means games cannot be played due to trophies getting messed up.

All this was found out after much self-diagnosis. Being a male and working in IT, I naturally refuse to read instructions and seek advice elsewhere, so it was a last resort when I called upon Google for help.

Along with an explanation as to what had happened, and a promise of a 24 hour fix, I was warned by Sony “not to use my console”

It’s a bit late for that now…

On the plus side, it looks like there may be a new job for me to apply for. I hear Sony are advertising for a replacement ‘PlayStation 3 Updates Manager’. The position has suddenly become available today.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
