it was down for me just a minute ago

Once again the media jumps the gun. I got the same error, but it only lasted for about 15 minutes. Probably just planned down time or something. Of course, that won't stop articles like this from coming up saying psn is hacked or something.

First of all, this article says nothing about the psn being hacked, just about it being down.

Second, articles pop up for xbl downtimes as well, even if they last only a few minutes and are back online by the time the article is submitted here.

The media are no more against or for a gaming console than any other out there. They all write them up for spreading any useful info, for clicks and hits due to the generated revenue.

Why do we need an article to pop up every time these services go down though? Half the time it's not even PSN that's down, it's the persons ISP(last week was TW cable).

If it's an unusually long time then yeah I can see an article, but these are just articles to get people saying how bad the service is.

I got that error earlier, but I proceeded to shut down my PS3, boot it back up and it worked.

oh my god, i couldn't access PSN/live a couple days ago, totally written an article of how they suck... u guys didn't read it, why not.... oh that's right, i called my friend first and asked, hey can you log into psn/live, my friends reply was yes...ok hes just down the road, not in a different area code... next step, called my ISP, ok hold time... 30 mins later still holding, ok something must be going on. rebooted everything again, finally connected... Damn PSN/Live its all your fault for getting hacked again....

Wow..more down time. Well lets just hope that 5 days from now Sony doesn't send us all notices that our personal and cc information has been stolen from psn like last time.

I've been signed in watching Arrested Development on Netflix for hours now (...what?) and i havent been signed out
Relientk77  +   969d ago
I guess it depends what region you are in. I couldn't get on about 90 mins ago, it gave me 8071053D error, then tried again it gave me a message saying the PSN is undergoing maintenance.

But now I'm online no problems
doctorstrange  +   969d ago
I've been on with no problems
But I had everyone on a match I was on disappear, and when I texted them they couldn't get online. Very odd.
Relientk77  +   969d ago
That's weird

hopefully they can get online soon
yewles1  +   969d ago
I was having 8071053D, it lasted an hour for me.

You get what you PAY for ;)
doctorstrange  +   969d ago
I see what you did there...
Xof  +   969d ago
I think the occasionally service outage of 5-10 minutes is a small price to pay for free online.

To this day I'm still stunned Microsoft managed to get people to buy into the Xbox Live crap.
one2thr  +   969d ago
In this day and age, people tend to be ok with having to pay to use the other 50% of their game they already paid for... /s
Siren30  +   969d ago
Yeah it sucks having free trails with every xbla game, and being able to send voice messages to my friends and having a party chat where I can hear everyone really clear.

I would much rather pay $50 a year to get free game rentals on games I've owned for 3 years.

"I think the occasionally service outage of 5-10 minutes is a small price to pay for free online."


Also, wasn't the 360 cheaper than the PS3?

By their logic, the failure rate of the 360 really DID mean, "You get what you paid for". LMAO.

Its still good to get the whole game at one go. Then some downtime is nothing.
On Xbox 360 you must have Xbox Live Gold to get all the features of a game. Almost every game has some online features, then pay up to get the whole game. That is not bullshit, its the pure fact.

jimbobwahey  +   969d ago
Well the only paid online service around is Xbox Live and that has had downtime lasting a month and rampant hacking. I don't think that the argument that you get what you pay for can be made in this case :o
Siren30  +   969d ago
I've been on xbox live since 2006 and it has never been down longer than a few hours for me.
JamieL  +   968d ago
Yea that's a 100% complete lie. Live has never been down a month, PSN is the only one with that honor, and "rampant hacking", LOL can you give an example? I've never had or even heard of anyone getting hacked on Live....Ever.

Haha don't see why people are getting upset over a good ol' joke!

Very original.
Qrphe  +   969d ago
So you like paying $60 a year against the occasional maintenance?

TekoIie  +   969d ago
But I didnt pa-..... Ah, I see what you did there.... You outwitted us this time but we will have the last laugh :3

Nykamari  +   968d ago
1st, I'm not trying to diss his wife. But it true I like for still playing MAG, it's a fun game.
rezzah  +   969d ago
How long does it take to get into a match?
Nykamari  +   968d ago
Sabo is the same, but the other modes take forever.

nooooo, just a bunch of squirrels messing up the servers.
Ben_Grimm  +   969d ago
I always get the 8071053D error. Looking on the internet it says to solve this :

1. Turn the PS3 to stanby power off.
2. Turn off power on the PS3 by using power toggle on back off PS3 and unplug power cord.
3. Restart your wireless router, if using one.
4. Plug in the PS3 power cord and power on the PS3.
5. Try creating a new connection on the by accessing the Network Settings menu option on the Playstation 3.

Got this off of Yahoo Questions and Aswers,

ziggurcat  +   969d ago
huh... i was under the impression that there might have been something wrong with my router set-up.
CPTN MITCHELL  +   969d ago
If u have low signal for your router this will happend all The time, I was told by customer service that ps3 need at least 75% of signal!!! No problem on my area Orlando Florida
sandman224  +   969d ago
For the record I was the first one to call Sony costumer service to report a problem. I should get paid for reporting problems.

Here how about a cookie?!

Interesting. I'm been on since I got home, and no prob. Thanks for the heads up though. Always appreciate the knee jerk reaction articles that bring these problem that a few might have to the masses. *thumbs up! :)

Woah. Double post. First time that's ever happened. N4G hacked???? ;) For the record, I think PSLifestyle is one of the best gaming sites, but this is something one of the "madeforN4Gsites would do for hits.

Im sure its only temporary.

Down for me last night too and I'm in the Uk.
Hicken  +   968d ago
Oh, lawdy. A handful of people experience a problem that's mostly likely on their end- given the examples above of how user-side actions fix the issue- and it's worthy of another article.

It's funny, because neither my PS3 nor my Vita have suffered ANY downtime.

I swear, PSLS is almost like the Stephen Colbert of Playstation sites: it pretends to be one, but all the while it's actually trying to put Playstation down.

I was really curious about all these N4G Sony fanboys to write something defendant about PSN in this post. I imagine the article: Xbox Live was down for 3 minutes. OOOOooooooh, there would be thousands of comments about it being so shitty and not free :)
iHeartHelloKitty  +   968d ago
I rather pay for XBL so a kid can hack me and lose the 3 good deals over 8 years got me.

I see these articles all the time and the only time it seems i couldn't log on was during the hack when it was down for a month.
