The worldwide outage for the PlayStation Network didn't last long, then; the PSN has resumed service.
Back to Starhawk, baby! Thinking about it now, it's kinda funny how many article we got on PSN being down, when it was only down for 20 minutes.
I think we all had the word "hack" in the back of our minds. Seems like it was just some error or something. Thank God.
I don't know about today, but most of the time these websites make news every time "PSN is down for maintenance" for less than 1 hour. It's ridiculous. Anyway, back on topic. How long did the outage last? I signed in on my PS3 today and didn't even realize anything happened lol.
^ Roughly three hours.
Regarding the hack, there is no justification to bring PSN down again by Crackers like they did before.
it can't be hacked any more
5,000 articles on the outage 12 articles on the restoration That's game journalism for ya.
Maybe getting slammed with people downloading those free games for PSN+? I know what's what I'm doing. LBP2, Infamous2, Just Cause 2, Warhammer 4000 Space Marine, Virtual Fighter 5, Ratchet and Clank - all 4 one, Saints Row 2, among others. I can assume there's going to be a few folks downloading this weekend and they're probably making adjustments on the fly to deal with the increased traffic. I'm currently grabbing Virtual Fighter and Infamous 2 myself.
Nexus-Knight Anything can be hacked (computer/OS wise, I'm not saying a piece of toast can be hacked).
If PSN was "hacked" then every single PSN card code or promotional redeemable code would have been compromised because the entire system was "hacked". But it wasn't it was compromised and then the idiots were locked out of it instantly. Lol hacked.
Yea I had a little mini heart attack because PSN was telling me to change my password O.o lol
"""I WAS ASLEEP!!! WHAT HAPPEN, WHAT I MISS?!?!"""
Back to Dust 514 for me
you lucky duck......how is it so far?
@FunAndGun Yeah its good, have no clue how to customize tho there's that much depth to it. Its a really good game but gonna take a while to get to grips with, its gonna be free so we are all winners :)
Awesome! thanks for the feedback. have fun :)
Im in the Beta, DUST is giong to ROCK when it's a finished product.
Anyone think it could be caused by overtraffic since they let PS plus members get 12 free games? Downloaded Lara Croft Just Cause 2 LBP 2 Rachet And Clank And next month there are 3 more games? Man i made PS plus worth it in one day
I must say I'm intrigued now with PS Plus. Got some questions I'm hoping you will be willing to answer. 1. If I sign up for PS Plus, will the content that is available to me be available to all users on my PS3s? 2. Will the free games that were offered this month be free next month?
@ TheRealHeisenberg (nice name btw) PS Plus is awesome and you don't actually realise how much so until you experience the free games, discounts that can save you a lot, the early betas and demos, and exclusive items. In answer to your questions: 1. Not sure. 2. You have to download the games in the month they are available to claim them for free and in the following month new games are added to replace them. But as long as you download them during that month, they will be on your Download List forever. However, you can only access those games whilst you're subscribed.
@TheRealHeisenberg 1. Yes, any accounts on the same PS3 will be able to access the content once it is downloaded/installed. However, only the original PS+ subscriber can actually download it from the PS-Store. (I believe this is also true for any purchases on PSN as well, as even online passes can be shared on the same PS3) 2. DigitalRaptor has already answered that. As long as the PSN Store shows a red bag icon next to the game, you won't loose it until your subscription runs out.
@ DigitalRaptor and FatOldMan. Thanks for the responses. I'll be signed up in a few minutes. Shot out to Spenok. Thanks for PM.
So the Plus membership I re subscribed to last August is only worth it now ? Its only morons like this that believe shit like this. Every month "Oh NOW Plus is worth it." Plus was always worth it idiots, just because you missed out on 2 years of €600 of stuff, don't try and tell me it wasn't worth it for me.
It was actually down more than 20 mins for some folks like myself.
Thank god. I could barely sleep because I was so worried about it.
lets hope when PS4 comes out all security issues is safe and hackers not able to screw with it so early.
ps store is still offline in scotland just now. but im online now though
Yeah stores dead over here in England too.
I've been signed in since 7pm (UK time), i played some inFamous 2 then watched The Intouchables (a French film, it was really good) I didn't know it had even gone down
Okay, that's great Why did it happen?
Glad to see its back up for all you hardcore PSN users! As a fellow gamer I hate to see bad things happen to other gamers. I think we are all a little gun-shy when it comes to PSN because of the hack last year.
Well thank you for your concern... but I guess we are fine. Hell, I haven't been on yet, so I didn't really panic
You have to be the nicest internet user in the world, ChunkyLover. Leave this place immediately my friend, don't let it taint you.
Finally !!! my pawn neededsome updating ...now let's go back ur-dragon hunting !!
I'm just glad I was at work during the outage.
outrage....sigh did people really run for the nearest fallout shelters because of this?
Omg teh hax0rs!!1! Haxhaxhaxhaxhaxhax Sony is dooooomz. Ps3 is dooooomz. Psn is dooooomz.
Looks like everything is back up and running including PSN store. That sure was fun wasn't it guys? lol
Haha it happened during my sleep time.
didnt bother me in the least. i played my free ratchet and clank: all for one. after i was done though, things were back to normal.
I was on Netflix when this happened. Separate servers ftw!
No it's not! It's still down here in Zimbabwe.
Lol the "Disagree" button is dumb on here, people say what they did during this and you can basically refute their statement.
A disappointing moment for the gaming media.
signed in thismorning over 14 hrs ago and stayed signed in. couplle of my buds asked if i cn get on psn and i was like well ive been on all day.if i signed out probably woulda been a diff story
G4 is so pissed right now....
Thank god I slept in late today.Wasn't affected :)
man o man i love my ps3 and all those free games!!!! infamous 2 is at 67%! downloaded and counting
So what was the "official" cause
no free games SONY?
I was on Ghost Recon getting double XP all day, mine never went down. I even logged out and back in too see. My friends were loggin out and in all day. I guess this wasn't as bad as people made it out to be.
I didnt notice there was an outage.. and I was downloading games all night!
Wow.. a phantom maintenance on a random Saturday, where they didn't mention one time they'd be taking all of the PSN down for a few hours. LMAO... it's free....
Must be because of all the Zigabytes of free games I've been downloading ?
free service :) if i paid and it went down i may have been annoyed
i was online at these times :S
