Seems like since E3, Sony has had a lot of trouble. I wonder if it's because of all the massive file downloads of the new PS Plus games?

WeskerChildReborned2040d ago

Most likely with all the people buying plus for like 12 new games.

Almost every time there's a new article claiming that it's down, I'm either already playing a game online no problem or able to sign in just fine.

Sometimes it's just maintenance and lasts no more than 1 or 2 hours. Other times it's isolated events happening to only one or a few people but the media sensationalizes it as something global, which many times is false.

Overall, I think this type of journalism gives people the illusion that something is worse than it actually is.

I've never had any problems with PSN except for that 1 month last year while Sony was revamping its security.

its prob not down at all, 1 guy prob got an error and rather than attempting to sign in again, goes writes an article saying its down. Every time i see these articles, i've been playing cod for hrs and no issues. Honestly the only down time i've personally had was when psn got majorly hacked and shutdown. I never see live is down cause simply it dont get to the top on this site as its a 360fanboy haven despite all claims its ps3fanboy. Don't get me wrong, i get these errors too, wanna know how to fix it, its a secret but I'm willing to share, reboot modem/router.

i have never had trouble with PSN other than the leap year thing and the whole hacking thing. first time i cant log on to PSN. I still feel PSN is a good and idk people bash on it and compare it to XBox live

nukeitall2040d ago (Edited 2040d ago )

I don't know, I constantly hear PSN is down either for maintenance or there are some other issues. It's like every other week now.

When PSN is taken down due to schedule maintenance, it's like for a day.

@alien626:

It's a little unfair to compare a paid service to a free service. It goes both ways, if it is free and I don't hold it up to as much expectations which translates to I expect more from MS too.

That said, MS has been pretty damn good at keeping Xbox Live stable and provide reporting tools. You can easily check if a particular service has issues such as matchmaking, Netflix, UFC, Hulu, and etc. It's premium price with premium service.

Checkout the Xbox Live status page here:

@NBT91 below:

It's free, so as you say you can't really complain. PSN is a fine service for being free.

Although Steam trounces the competition, but has no console presence unfortunately.

Also, I appreciate your honesty! Giving you an agree and a bubble as I want to hear more from you!

NBT912040d ago

Not going to lie, it is down often enough that it is a little bit of a bother.
I cant really complain though, its still free and works more often than not. Aside from the PSN hack, and this (though im online now, so it hasnt affected me) not really been any problems.

A lot of the time its like, a few people get errors signing in and assume PSN is down lol

alien6262040d ago

@nukeitall i understand your view and i agree but for being a free service it does good. Like i said i had no problems and this is the first time. I heard many times on N4G that PSN is down but when i check i log on n nothing wrong. I also have Xbox live but hardly use it to play. I use PSN more often for movies music and games.
I also expect a lot for a paid service and xbox live is doing a good job to keep the people happy. I also have some complains on both services but Sony and xbox could only do so much

I've very rarely, if ever, had any problems with PSN except for that 1 month last year while Sony was revamping its security.

Tried buyiing 21 jump street yesterday but wasn't allowed !! lmao why do you guys always assume something positive whenever the servers are down? Doubt thats the reason because I hardly see people or talk to individuals that have ps+. I doubt many have it because if many did have it sony would have bragged about it. Don't own an xbox 360 but from what i can tell is that their servers are way more stable.

DUSK5062040d ago

Every time PSN goes down for a few minutes, we get an article. lol

Nimblest-Assassin2040d ago

Had trouble connecting yesterday too. I really wish PSN could be more stable.

Thatguy-3102040d ago

It's good for something free.

cervantes2402040d ago

Too bad these connectivity errors keep happening -- PSN is a good service otherwise.

decimalator2040d ago

Weird, it's always been solid for me. maybe I'm just lucky

Unversed872040d ago

It was scheduled stop complaining. You can still play online and text friends. It was more than a week too.
