I have the same problem. All of my trophy's are gone, the calendar is set to 12/31/1999 and I can't even play games in offline mode because it won't sync the trophy info.

Apparently someone hacked into PSN and installed a virus attached to the 3.15 update and took effect sometime this afternoon.

Not only does mine, my brother's and my cousin's not log in to the PSN network.............None of us can play games that have accumulated trophies. It instantly locks up at the trophy loading screen.

Our PS3's don't even work. They won't even read movies either.

The fat models are all breaking.

I know nobody with a fat model that is working properly.

The slim are fine though.

No way Sony can fix this problem.

The only way is a total recall. They won't be able to produce enough software CD's for distribution fixes either, and people can't log in to the PSN network because of port settings.

It's pretty much over if you have a fat ps3........Just buy a slim one.

The rumour going around is that the problem will fix itself at 12am, some people have reported that removing the watch battery and replacing it on the PS3 motherboard also fixes the problem because it resets the clock.
