PS3s are at risk of crashing if turned on.

Thanks to a programming glitch where 2010 has been labelled as a leap year, older, non-slim Sony PS3 consoles are currently at risk of crashing and displaying error messages.

Errors are occurring when the console connects to the internet, which is a bit of a problem in this ever-connected age.

Sony is promising to fix the problem within 24 hours, but in the meantime you're advised not to switch your PS3 on if it's a pre-2009 non-slim model.

Might be a good time to download some gaming apps for your phone, such as the best-selling Plants vs. Zombies or Stuff office favourite, Angry Birds.
