Missing PS3 trophies? Recover them

After yesterday’s worldwide PS3 glitch that deleted trophies, denied gamers access to PSN and rendered some games unplayable, affected non-slim consoles are functioning as normal again.

However, “It is possible that some users who experienced the connection problems yesterday and tried unsuccessfully to access a game (online or offline) may find that trophy data for that title is no longer displayed,” a statement from Sony reads.

“To resolve this issue, the user will need to re-access the game to reinstall the trophies, then exit the game and sync their trophy collection to the server in order to regain previous achievements.”

The glitch was a result of the console recognizing 2010 as a leap year, and reset the system clock to January 2000.

The error has now corrected itself, with no patch needed.
