PlayStation 3 problem fixed

PlayStation consoles

A bug which hit Sony's PlayStation 3 console meaning players couldn't link up and play online has been fixed.

The problem meant thousands of gamers could not play against others online, or use the PlayStation Network to download movies.

The problem did not affect the newer slim models of the PS3 but instead the older consoles.

Sony said that if gamers still had problems, they should adjust the date settings manually or via the internet.

The Japanese games maker had previously said gamers should stop using their games console until the problems were resolved.
