Jason Trent with GoozerNation writes: "It was February 29th, 2010 (at least that's what the PlayStation 3 thought the date was) when PlayStation 3's around the world revolted against their owners. As if the systems had become self-aware, they refused to entertain us any longer. I'm happy to report that 24 long hours after the problem began, it was over, and gamers were resumed their normal schedules of Modern Warfare 2 and other such hit titles. This day, now informally known as the apocalyPS3, opened my eyes. What if the PlayStation 3 had been my only means of gaming? Then what would have I done? Unfortunately, technology is not infallible, so although I'm sure Sony is hard at work developing a patch for this issue, similar issues could always come up on any game system you use. How will you prepare?"
