It seems as though owners of 120GB/250GB “slim” PS3 model are able to connect to the PlayStation Network. The problem appears to be isolated to the original “fat” PS3 models.
Sorry for the post hijack, but people won't see this on the fourth page.

Those are the Phat SKU's, stamped on the back of the console. If you've got one of the affected SKU's, don't use it. If you have an unaffected SKU, use it.
Not ALL Phats are down.
it became increasingly clear that the issue was unrelated to the console's internet connectivity and instead related to the console's internal clock. If this sounds suspiciously similar to the Z2K bug that suddenly bricked thousands (dozens?) of 30GB Zune players in 2008, it's because both the PS3 and Zune share an ARM CPU chip, says DF. This is presumably the same Freescale processor blamed for Z2K, a chip that happens to have a known problem dealing with leap years.
