UPDATE: Sony admitted the issue, fix inbound in next 24 hours.

Sony today continues an ongoing investigation into why PlayStation 3 consoles worldwide were hit with a crippling, looping system error yesterday evening.

The log in errors prohibited users from logging onto the PlayStation Network, caused some users to lose Trophies and even made it so some games, like the newly released “Heavy Rain,” could not even be played offline.

Sony was quick to comment on its Twitter account.

“We’re aware that many of you are having problems connecting to PSN, and yes, we’re looking into it,” the company said in a Twitter statement. “Stay tuned for updates.”

Sony updated on its blog in the wee hours of today and said the issue is not affecting PS3 Slims(120 and 250 GB models) and remains an issue only for the “fat” models.

And a final update came from Sony in the dark of night came by the United States Sony blog saying the team has “narrowed down the issue and have engineers working to restore service even as you read this.”

This sounds like no fun for anyone. Hopefully Sony fixes soon, soon, soon. We’ll update the instant we get word.
