Yeah, people are raging on the US blog. I'm kinda mad too, I've been wanting to check out the Soul Sacrifice demo all freaking day... :\

People are always raging on the PlayStation Blog even when there is nothing to rage about.That is no big surprise.The one time PSN doesn't deliver and people fly off the PlayStation Blog attracts the worst group of gamers. Even worse then here

Snookies122068d ago (Edited 2068d ago )

Yes true, but as a company, Sony has to deliver when they say they're going to. Updates should be uniform on the same day. I can see an unexpected mess up occurring maybe once or twice, but this kind of things has happened multiple times in the past. Where they didn't update the store the day they were supposed to.

I love the PSN for what it is, but it's definitely not perfect.

The "one time"? You haven't been on PSN long if you think this is the "one time". That said, this is no big deal, it will come up soon.

I know right? Sometimes people need to get over themselves and realize that sh*t happens.

The least Sony could have done though was tell everyone what's going on. They did nothing though. They never mentioned the maintenance even. You had to check their Twitter account or another site to know about it. Not good. Usually they make a blog post telling everyone about it.

Seriously people need to stop being cry babies.What I've noticed is depending on the size of content we're getting.That's how long it takes Sony to update it.

E.G Little to minimal Content 2 P.M.+ ,Meidum content 4 P.M,+ and major content like today.6 P.M.+

Note this is all West coast time.

Edit:Gonna download Dragon Book

BrianC62342067d ago

The update doesn't seem that big this week so it should have been up by 3 pm PT according to you.

lex-10202067d ago

So by your logic. This must be gargantuan size update. Sine it's now 1200hrs 17 Apr (PST) and it still hasn't been updated.

TooTall192068d ago

Over 2,500 comments on the latest blog post. This time they are really fired up!

It's a great way to poll how many infants there are on PSN

UnholyLight2068d ago

I am certainly not defending Sony but I know from experience (with Xbox Live) that sometimes things happen from time to time. This goes for anything really, not just console companies. While it should be uniform and unobtrusive (like it usually is) there's always the chance that something can be overlooked or unaccounted for that causes this to happen.

Sometimes ya just gotta let it be and when everything gets fixed it gets fixed!! Like I said, sometimes it's beyond their control when it comes to pushing new updates and such.

nukeitall2067d ago

The thing with Xbox Live is that I don't remember ever encountering any issues since the holiday of 2007 I think. Sometimes there are issues reported, but it only affects some people.

That of course gets made into "news", yet it affects a small subset of people. You never hear about this on PSN, because PSN doesn't inform you at all.

Instead, PSN does this constant maintenaince updates that requires them to take the system down. It happens quite frequently too.

Why don't they hot patch it like MS? i.e. while the system is still online?

violents2067d ago (Edited 2067d ago )

I agree, the people that are doing all this programming are just that, people, and we all make mistakes or things just don't go as planned and take a little longer. Just because you have to wait an extra day for a game demo or something doesn't mean you get to cry like someone is trying to take your first born or something. I mean really all these people making such a fuss out of an online store being down for a couple days, do you throw a fit on the street when the grocery store is closed too?


I love how the xbots claim this happens on some constant basis, I suppose it does when you only use your ps3 once every couple months or so. They update the store once in a while, get over it, at least they don't charge you to look at it. I would much rather they take it down once in a while to make improvements than deal with anything from MS. I use my ps3 pretty much daily and this is the first time in like 6 months or so I couldn't use the store, so saying this is some constant thing is just ludicrous fanboy trash.

UnholyLight2067d ago

@violents, I agree with your first paragraph, the second one I don't. nukeitall actually speaks some truth in that Sony really isn't as good at addressing these issues. Xbox Live does hiccup from time to time when these updates occur but he is partially right when it comes to certain people being affected...It almost seems like Xbox Live affects certain areas more than others and PSN is like this too. When PSN goes down my friend tends to lose connection for much longer than other people do. Xbox Live has been the opposite for me, tending to get back on sooner than other people.

Anyways, I reiterate what I said before; They're people too and mistakes can happen. I do agree however that there ARE some things that Sony could do to try and make things a little easier and be upfront about stuff...but who knows, maybe the issues they encounter are more difficult to deal with and don't want to make any promises if they aren't sure they can keep 'em.

Everyone needs to just chill out and stop attacking each other's platforms for things that happen. Yes there's things both can do, but lets all just stop whining and be happy they BOTH can get their services up in the timely manner that they tend to do!!

violents2067d ago (Edited 2067d ago )

I'm not attacking anyones platform of choice just expressing my opinions. I did state an unfortunate fact that may have come off a little fanboyish, I'll agree with that but it is a fact and that's undeniable.

I will agree if sony had some better communication with the consumers a lot of this backlash could be avoided. I think part of the problem is they are spreading the ps3 too thin. The hardware was not originally intended to do as much as they are making it do now and when they try to add more it creates unforeseen issues. I'm glad they are continuing to support the ps3 even into the later years of the console but its pretty evident that its about at its limits, and they need to tell people what's going on and be a little specific, "routine maintenance" excuse is getting a little tired. Really sony just be honest with the consumer and you will prob be surprised with how understanding the community would be rather than some vague BS.

The maintenance got in the way, about to download Malicious, been waiting a while ^_^

Donnieboi2067d ago

All I wanted was RPG Maker 3 and the Soul Sacrifice demo :(

WildArmed2067d ago

Yes! I wanna play community made RPGs!

Snookies122067d ago (Edited 2067d ago )

Always loved RPG Maker, but I have VX Ace on my PC, so... Not sure if I really need 3 personally.

Can't wait for Soul Sacrifice though, it's gonna be great if the reviews of the demo in Japan are anything to go by.

I already broke down and got a hold of the Japanese demo of SS, but what excited me is that your progress in the demo carries over to the full game. It's not really a "demo". Rather, it is the first chapter of the game.

violents2067d ago

just on that page, there are two people cussing at sony for the network being down, when will people have some get some common decency and learn how to discuss problems in a civilized manner. I swear the thought of being cordial, even in an argument, is completely gone from this country.

violents2067d ago (Edited 2067d ago )

thanks for the bubble mac_sparrow!

And how do we both get disagrees for that, would those 2 people rather everyone scream and cuss and throw fits over everything?

ExCest2068d ago

I just want to point out: "enounters".

Snookies122068d ago (Edited 2068d ago )

Dang, I usually notice stuff like that, didn't this time though. Good catch.

coolasj2068d ago

This happens from time to time sadly.
