It only does... maintenance
galgor  +   721d ago
Ever think all this maintenance could be them prepping for the launch of a new system next year?

@galgor....Please stop it bro.....2012 is almost over and 2013 is almost here....
There is no PS4 coming in 2013.

What are you on about man? PSN goes down for maintenance every month or so and it usually has nothing to do with getting ready for a new system or whatever being launched.
That's just how PSN was built, it needs to be taken offline to be maintained. XBL maintenance happens stealthly.

Why so much maintenance, i hardly ever see Steam down for maintenance.

The comment by Red_Orange_Juice is spot on, SCEE is run by Monkeys.

They don't just have to deal with PS3 now though. They have Vita and the soon to be released PSmobile. That integration will not be easy particularly because it also has to work on other Android systems such as Wikipad and Phones. Steam only has to cater for PCs and LIVE only has to cater for 360s. Think about it

I've had a Playstation 3 for years, long before Vita came around, and this downtime has been happening since PSN was launched.

You're argument is the equivalent to iTunes being down because of the new IPad or new IPhone. Which of course is not the case.

Even the original SOCOM on the Playstation 2 had regular downtime for maintenance.

Gribble, really? Come on bro! PSN was just built that way. XBL also has Windows Mobile and it almost never goes down for maintenance. It just boils down to how the network was built.(poorly)

But yet the EU PS+ lacks in its updates. While USA already got them. How about that Slowny?

SCEE is run by monkeys

Must the same for Asian stores, japanese monkeys most likely as most of the content is freaking Japanese. Not that many English title :C

I don't feel bad for Europe. They still got dead space 2 and motorstorm apocalypse, oh yeah they also got deux x. So that's to bad if they didn't get there ps+ update yet.

@ Sandman

Normal price is 50 Euro, aka something like 70 USD. So we pay 20 USD more a year than SCEA. I think we deserve some extra content for that already, as we also get shafted on console prices, cost the same in Euro as in USA, same with retail games, we pay 60 Euro, while you pay 60 USD.

So that. And one can't get Deus X anymore if one starts subscription now.
Only cool thing is that there is a 25% rebate on PS+ starting today till 19th.

Start writing those 'hacked' articles now people. Save yourself some time.
Bowzabub  +   721d ago
LoL.. Right on time.
Pwnage2u  +   721d ago
And expect articles of PSN being hacked again on Monday.

hmm something telling me that ps3 system update version 4.30 is coming next week?

One of the main features of the update is a increase to the ps+ online storage 150MB to 1GB
RustInPeace  +   721d ago
Is that just a rumor or was that reported? Not calling you a liar, just want to sift thru truths/rumors... Slightly on/off topic, I want to know what it means when an update "improves the playback of some titles" (or however they word it every time...). Is that all encompassing or just certain titles (like F:NV with its constant crashes)?
CRASHBASHUK  +   720d ago
Didn’t u watch sonys gamescom 2012 press conference? They said that the increase to the ps+ online storage would be in sep
And often they do maintenance before system updates
