Big question will the notorious "Down For Maintenance" be long gone on the PS4? Someone Tweet Shuhei Yoshida.

After a year I would imagine it will happen a lot less often, with lots more people now actually paying to use PlayStation Network.

FFS always during the main hours over here in the UK >:(

Why not inconvenience every part of the world with peak hours downtime (rotate the times) rather than always the EU >:(

AlexanderNevermind1415d ago

Remember you can log in before maintenance starts in order to stay online.

Dark_Overlord1415d ago

I will :) but its not the point, they ALWAYS do it during EU peak hours >:(

If you the Power of the Cloud is not going to have these same down times you're fooling yourself.

Well Xbox live hasn't had the downtime like this this generation so why would that suddenly change? What we can hope for is now that PSN is a paid for service that the down times will decrease significantly

Cloud, at least Azure, has redundancies that can move the workload to different servers should they go down or need maintenance. In this case I would assume maintenance wouldn't be all at the same time.

@jack
Xbox Live has had downtime, however it is usually brief. I can't say for sure, but I wouldn't doubt that Live already runs off Azure, as the rest of MS Live products do. I think they are expanding what all live does for next gen though to be more than just a matchmaking server, and it will start actually hosting games and doing other things.

MS are pretty good at software, they've had software upgrading solutions for a while that keep downtime to a minimum.

Please refer to front page as far as Microsoft Azure network for those who disagreed to my comment! Actually I'd settle for Sony maintenance then risk being booted mid match on the Xbox1 quite frequently as they put it.

Why people won't come to terms to the fact that Microsoft has mis-managed the development of the Xbox1 is beyond me! How anyone can anyone defend it, or Microsoft is ludicrous.
