As we all know this error code wont let you play anything...not even a simple campaign on MW2. How is it even feasible that those of us who paid 600 dollars or more cannot play our bricked systems and the lucky ones who paid $299 have no problems? Sony obviously doesnt give a crap about its customers. I paid for my ps3 at the ridiculous price thinking to myself " If you pay this much for a system, it must come with awesome benefits" Well, I was wrong since day 1. My ps3 stopped reading games a few months after I purchased it/. I called Sony and they told me it wasnt covered under the warranty. Uhhhh.....BS. I researched some things myself and fixed my ps3 by myself. They have charged me for things I did not get to watch when I rented movies( I hit play while it was downloading and PSN went down that night so it didnt download, but it expired anyway) Sony needs to really think about its customers. I own the otherbox system as well and Ill tell you something...Id rather deal with RROD as opposed to this error code 8001050F crap. Only for the fact that the otherbox's maker will replace my system. Sony is just like toyota....promises of a better product, but in the end all you get is an im sorry. I have been down since yesterday and I am obviously extremely upset to wake up on my only day off to not even be able to play a non online game. Sony YOU SUCK.
If you cannot grasp the concept that the price of a good is going to drop the longer it has been in production (especially when they remove some of the components that caused it to be expensive in the first place), then you are beyond help to begin with.
And anybody that says they would rather deal with RROD (a permenant end) than this (something that may be fixed by the end of the day) is delusional and probably needs to take some deep breathes.
It is 12:29pm CST and I feel that Sony has let down thousands of their customers worldwide. I'm not disappointed with the downtime on the system, I'm disappointed with the fact I can't even play offline games. Sure, I have PS1, PS2, PSP, Xbox, Xbox360 (video junkie) and I can play all of them except PS3 the one I want to play the most.
Don't say Sony doesn't ban people for no reason. They just banned and locked out over 100,000 people for no reason nor explanation.
lol its down not even 1 day yet and people are doing this bs? i seem to remember last year a certain other console had almost a month of not being able to log on. I know this cause it wouldn't for me. Also, If you can't comprehend that a system will drop in price over the years then your rather nieve
Nobody has a bricked PS3 because of this. Sony is working as fast as they can to resolve the issue. It's funny how everyone seems to think that they don't care.
PS: To prove your PS3 isn't bricked, just go play God of War. Works fine.
PPS: Stop crying about a day and a half of lost gameplay.
ok... duhh..the price is going to drop...im sure you havent even studied micro economics like i have to try to explain that to me...the post was not to complain about a price drop you illiterate fools...it was to complain about Sonys lack of customer service. Learn to read a main idea fools. And the otherbox was down for 3 days with an explanation of why. Sony has done this a few times with no explanation, or rather, not a good enough explanation. And again, if this fool would have read thoroughly, I was referring to dealing with the RROD over Sonys crap because at least Micro____ will replace your system, I had to fix my own. Even though I had a warranty Sony said the system not reading discs ws not covered....uhhh BS...especially when the system was a few months old on a two year warranty. Sony sucks soooo bad. But i do love my PS3 regardless....
All of you saying stop complaining about a day and a half of lost gaming: Let me remind you the problem still hasn't been fixed. They said it would be back up by this morning now they're saying wait another 24 hrs. Tommorrow will they say the same? You can't even play offline games are you serious. 360 has never kept you from playing offline games NEVER. How a network error can keep you from playing games all together is ridiculous. The fact that they can't fix it is even worse. Sony is absolute garbage!
I tried to play the God of War remakes....didnt work....I cant even play elefunk!! and if someone only has MW2....wouldnt you say that their ps3 is bricked? they cant play anything....
It's not a network error. It's an internal clock error. Also, I've been playing games just fine, so long as they don't require PSN or trophies. The PS3 is fine, and a clock issue is preventing some of the network features from working. It's seriously not the end of the world.
I completely agree with OP... how dare Sony provide free online service for 4 years and then have one little hiccup for 20 hours? It's completely unacceptable. How dare they miniturize their hardware and find cheaper ways of producing their product?! What is this, Capitalism?!!? I'm so upset, I can barely choke this puppy I'm holding. Why Why Why!?!?!
I know now how Rosa Parks felt in 1964. I am being oppressed and I won't take it lying down anymore! My old model not working for a few hours has completely ruined the past 4 years of good service I've experienced from my PS3 and I won't rest until the heads of SCEA commit ritual suicide in retribution.
