PlayStation 3 owners affected by the dreaded 8001050F error, it may be safe to turn on your systems again. Reports from users locked out by the system's clock bug are indicating our day-long nightmare is finally over.
Reader tips, forum posts and tests at Kotaku Towers are pointing to a fix for the bug that rendered numerous Trophy enabled games unplayable and PlayStation Network downloads limited to demo form. We're testing our own original PlayStation 3 units - my 60GB launch system now works, as does Demon's Souls, which syncs my Trophy list correctly - and seeking official comment from Sony Computer Entertainment.
In the meantime, please let us know if you're experiencing continuing issues with your PlayStation 3 or you're back in the business of playing in 4D.
