If this was a horror movie Whitesword would be the one who would wander off on his own into the dark basement.

Too late. I experienced that yesterday. Tried to play some HD Remix (which I hadn't done in a while) and got this crap.

Seriously, the PS Network...it's not just a piece of shit, it's the whole goddamned shit.

It's not the network, it's the PS3s themselves

Speculation I heard at work today is that the PS3 firmware believes 2010 is a leap year so the consoles think it's the 29th and everything gets screwed up.

The Zune had a similar bug in 2008 that caused it to not function for an entire day (infinite loop in leap year calculation code). http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9124638/Zune_chokes_on_leap_year_bug

It felt like one of those movies where your country is being destroyed by war, but the news say to wait up in the shelter, that everything is going to finish shortly with no problems nor injured.

It's been a while since the last time we enjoyed witnessed a global wave of malfunction madness such as this, isn't it? It brings me memories of the good ol' days of Red Rings of Dead and disk-spitting PSPs.
