    Interestingly enough, I just restarted Fusion myself yesterday.

    Have you ever had your PS3 sent in for repairs or anything? Rumor has it that replacing the internal battery also resets the internal clock, and systems that had it's battery removed and replaced are unaffected by this bug. And generally speaking, if it was sent in for maintenance the battery was removed and replaced at one point.

    Wouldn't affect me too badly at the mo, just did a full backup to an external drive, and been playing Virtua Tennis 3 lately which is that old it has no trophies!

    I'll stick to C&C on the PC for the time being, or some college work or something!

    Oh ffs, first my 360 red rings and now this shit. A little worried as I was playing rom 11.30 last night to about 12.30 this morning.

    I'm half expecting my fucking DS to explode next.

    This sucks. I have not had my PS3 on the net in a few months though. I am afraig to turn it on now. LOL. Although I think the only game I have that has trophies is Tekken 6.

    Plus mine is a 60gb that I bought refurbish, maybe the batery was replaced.

    Actually, your DS could explode and it'd probably still work well enough to play games.

    Sometimes the Wii decides to go crazy and only play GC DVDs, not Wii ones. It happened to mine:( ...
    I didn't play a Wii game in a long time (Been hooked to vc), and only noticed it after I bought TvC.

    Mine has the date reset. I used it yesterday to stream some videos but didn't do any gaming. Hope I didn't lose my Dark Void trophies I got on Saturday.
