not me thankfully

... and the worst part is that due to PSN being down, people also seem to have a problem playing their games 'offline', which isn't possible for some games...

... which is ridiculous.

This is what brought the problem to my attention, couldnt load in to ufc of BF4 past the pre-menu loadign screens, thought it might be an ea issue then had same problem with pixel junk and other little single player titles.

The fix?

Sign out of psn from settings, and you can play your games offline again thankfully (turning internet connection "off" didnt work for some reason).

Hopefully the network issues are fixed soon, thought my console was on the verge of being bricked when none of my games could make it past their initial boot up. Also noticed games I've purchased (I'm on my secondary console) were not being "locked" as they usually are during maintenance, once i signed out of psn, they went locked as expected, anyway just thought I'd inform people of that little fix struggling to get in to their single player content.

Quick someone call Aiden Pearce.
He will get it back on track.

Never mind. I'm headed down to my man cave right now to play some WD. I will give him a heads up and see what he can do for us.

PSN has too many issues. That's just one reason why I chose Xbox live over it.

Here in Toronto, I was downloading big updates to games last night. Worked great for me.

liquidhalos1637d ago

I couldn't play any games yesterday, battlefield wouldn't load the menu screen and none of my digital games worked. I got some license related error.

UltimateMaster1636d ago

People downloaded the patch from a third party site they put up the other day that could be it.
If the PS4 don't do automatic update; don't do it.

It seems down for many and me as well


GiggMan1637d ago

Yeah it's down for me too on PS4. I was able to play online on PS3 for some reason. I ran a network connection test on PS4 and it also said that my NAT type had failed.

Came online to check if it was just me and it seems it isn't.

Mine is down. I can't even play Injustice which is weird.

mine was down but after like 5 min its back (CT, USA)

WhyTF do I need a license check to play a demo?
PS+ games, I understand, but demos and games I BOUGHT ON PSN, need license checks???? This sheet is smelling like xb1 original daily DRM checks.

This discovery is gonna make me think twice about digital games on PSN.

wsoutlaw871637d ago

then you need to change your ps4 to the "primary". Has someone been game sharing? lol

CyberSentinel1637d ago (Edited 1637d ago )


I didn't know that would resolve that. I don't share my account with anybody, I never "registerd" my main ps4 because of activation drm paranoia.

I have 2 ps4's and if my primary ps4 were to break, I don't want any hassles with trying to register another ps4.

Thanks for the info.

Yeah that normally doesnt happen when PSN is down CyberSentinel, i was locked out from ALL my games lasy night, even disc based single player ones. They would boot up but never make it past the initial menu loading screen. Seems even though PSN was down we were still connecting to it in some form and somethign was causing the games to glitch out on load up.

I turned internet connection "off" but that didnt work at all, still hit with the same problems. So I signed my profile out of PSN and that fixed everything :D

Was able to play all my disc owned games and my friends digital purcahses (we game share, so my console is his primary and my secondary) for the hour or so before PSN came back up.

I know its a little late giving you that fix now since everything is back to normal but it should give insight in to what exactly happened last night, seems PSN was being strangely glitchy and locking people out of games they wouldnt normally get locked out of during regular mainenance.

CyberSentinel1634d ago


Thanks for the sign out tip, I was going nuts trying to figure out what was going on. I still haven't registered my consoles yet, (I want to upgrade both hard drives to 2 TB's) but I will eventually do it if I keep experiencing the same problem again.
I didn't try a disc game because I guess I assumed that would work, and I really wanted to try out the thief demo.

Thanks again for the reply and tips gamers:-)

Same here, just got off so I can go to bed.

Unfortunate for those who it is down for, likely just a server issue and will be fixed.

Infamazdre1636d ago

Me either but I'm on Xbox live

The vita and ps3 is working but the ps4 isn't

mrpsychoticstalker1637d ago

Instead of wasting their money on PSN they should invest on the server infrastructure.


XiSasukeUchiha1637d ago

Not for me as well, but its unfortunate to people who can't get on good luck.

dyani1637d ago

Just got the pop notification while playing my PS4 that said down for maintenance.

305LoneWolf1637d ago

Just now i got it as well

MaximusPrime_1637d ago

Had issues with sending messages but I didn't go offline or had any effects playing online.
