Password Problems

We’ve had a couple of emails in this week (guys, we’re not SCEE) from users who have changed their passwords only to find out that their PS3s then seem to think they’re a different user, blocking access to saved games and Trophies.  It’s not happening to everyone, and seemed constrained to just users changing their passwords on the actual console (rather than over the web) but some games, namely Dead Space, Burnout Paradise and LittleBigPlanet aren’t happy with the change.

We’re not really prepared to test this, but if anyone has had this problem arise, we’d like to hear from you.  One visitor said that LittleBigPlanet wouldn’t let him get any new Trophies until he’d deleted the save game, and we’ve even heard this morning that WipEout HD is refusing to boot at all after a password change.  Here’s hoping this is something that can be fixed with a firmware update because expecting gamers to start their saves all over again is clearly ludicrous.
